Fullerton Financial Services entered three cars in the 28 car field for the second round of the KCF Rallysport Short Course championship, and came away with a fantastic result and trophies for all three cars.

Ryan Smart, with Nikki Doyle taking the place of an absent Rebecca Smart, won the event comfortably in his Mitsubishi Evo 6, winning all 6 stages to finish 1 minute 9 seconds in front of Matt van Tuinen and Alan Stean in their Subaru WRX. In the process they won the P5 class.

Third outright was Bruce Fullerton and Hugh Reardon-Smith in Bruce’s Evo 6 after an 8 month absence from rallying due to work commitments and rained off events. “It was great to get back into the car and into the groove so quickly” said Bruce.

Difficult conditions with rain falling intermittently through the day made the second run through the stages particularly tricky, and it was a great effort by the 3rd Fullerton Financial Services entered car of Chris Harbeck and John Blake to finish 15th outright and win the classic class in their Toyota Celica.  

The Fullerton Financial Services cars came away with 1st, 3rd and 2 class wins – a great result.

Mention must be also be made of the 4th place getter, Cameron Sluce and Nathan Long, pushing their Subaru RS up the field to just pip Simon and Margot Knowles in the Evo 6. Four wheel drive cars took out the first 8 places.

Thanks to the organisers and officials who had to work through the inclement weather to put on an event with great camaraderie and challenging stages. And thanks to the service crew of Richard and Tim Harris and Ray Smart, who covered both Fullerton Financial Services Evo 6’s throughout the day.
