Both events ran smoothly with the only major incident I have heard is Mark Tamblyn going off at the finish of the Windfarm and sustaining some damage to his XR8. He was able to compete in the SRT  sprint.

There was a rare occurrence with Mark Hallam being beaten in his class.  At least there was some consolation as it Jamie Taylor was driving another Escort.

The results for both events have been posted on the Albany Results page and the points have been updated. Note Keith Woollard hasn’t been allocated points for the Windfarm because of a broken driveshaft that did not allow him to get a timed run.
