Windus polling for top result in Canberra
- 8th May 2019, 9:40am
"Compared to the Subaru, it has more power, is around 200 kilograms lighter and has more suspension travel, so in theory it should be faster too."It's also a shorter wheelbase car and changes direction a lot faster than the Subaru, which is important on narrow and twisty roads like we'll get in Canberra." Lying third in the six-round championship after the first round means there's still plenty to play for. While the factory Toyotas of brothers Harry and Lewis Bates dominated in WA, the often rough and rugged stages in Canberra mean that reliability will be a key.
"I'd be disappointed if we can't be right near the pace of the Toyotas," Windus added."We're not going to Canberra to finish fourth or fifth, so we'll be pushing hard. "I love the roads in Canberra and have done well there in past years, so if we can have a clean run, then we should be able to achieve a similar result." The National Capital Rally will be held over eight stages this Saturday, May 11, with a total competitive distance of 144 kilometres. Further details on the National Capital Rally can be found HERE.
