Thirty-three seconds back in second place were Hobart competitors David Waldon and David Catt in another Subaru, with a further 18 seconds back to Jamie and Simon Vandenberg (Lancer) making a welcome return to the gravel.
First place two wheel drive was taken out by the Hobart team of Lee Peterson and James Booker in a Nissan Sunny GTi, followed by StephenTurner/Anna Fittler (Falcon XR6).
New young gun Kade Barrett and experienced bavigator David Weldon put together a brilliant drive in their Lancer hatch to finish first in the club event, and eighth outright on the day.
The event saw a new breed of young drivers and navigators competing, who placed themselves extremely well against more experienced crews.
The next round is to held in the Huon Forest, south of Hobart, in late August.
