Returning star Glenney gets ‘thumbs up’ for Forest Rally
Steve Glenney is likely to continue his 2018 Australian Rally Championship campaign after a strong result in the first round of the series in Ballarat – just days after he was a surprise late entry in the event.
The former ARC round winner finished second in both heats of The Courier Eureka Rally last weekend, and gave positive reviews on the quality of his competition.
“I just tried to keep it neat and tidy, and fortunately we were on the pace,” Glenney said at the podium presentation.
“You make one small blue and you drop three or four spots, it’s that cool.
“I love the intensity, love the competition and there’s heaps of fast guys here – it’s shaping up to be a really good championship.”
Quizzed by MC Dean Herridge about the prospect of making the trip west for the next round in Western Australia, Glenney and team manager, Craig Brooks, gave positive indications.
“I think so,” Glenney responded.
“I’ve done my job, the car’s relatively in one piece, so hopefully we can.”
A corresponding thumbs up from a smiling Brooks was telling.
Look for the bright orange Subaru to be back near the top of the entry list once the Make Smoking History Forest Rally gets closer.
