This was bound to be an exciting outing as it was a new track, the rivalry between Rally cars and Buggies and it was going to feature a Datsun 240Z and Tuthill prepared Porsche 911…
As fate would have it, the heavens opened after the second heat rendering the circuit impassable and the guy with the fastest time of the day, Quentin Mitchell in his N16 was declared the winner. “It’s really fantastic to win today because the car was running really faster. The last time I rallied was in June last year so I felt rusty going into the practice lap but it all came back into rhythm as the race wore on ,” said Quentin
Behind Quentin was Manik Choda who romped home second in a time of 7.28minutes beating buggy driver Charles Mugo by a mere one second.
