Regularity Advice to Competitors 4

Compilation of Results for Day 3

Test R9.3 on R9, Back Yamma Rd

In Regularity Advice to Competitors 2, Test 9.3 was incorrectly called a Constant Average Speed test when it should have been an Overall Average Speed test. There was not a waypoint in place in line with Supplementary Regulations para 606.3 [4], so Organisers could not time the test properly.

Test 9.3 has been neutralised.

Tests R10.1 and R10.2 on R10, Amaroo Way

In the running of R10, the Rally Recovery vehicles started just before the Regularity field. In carrying out their duties these vehicles stopped a number of times and continued on Amaroo Way, creating dusty conditions that adversely affected a significant number of Regularity competitors.

The Organiser’s view is that conditions on these two tests were not consistent for Regularity Competitors and we have neutralised both tests R10.1 and R10.2.

Today’s two DNFs were the Triumph Stag V8 of Tony Jordan and Richard Davidson and the Holden Commodore VL of previous Classic Outback Trial winner, Matt Swan and Paul Franklin.

The field included equal second placed Datsun 1600 of Paul and Mariella Kirkham and the 1972 Datsun 240Z of David and Stephen Gainer. In fourth place at the end of today is Bruce Power and Jill Robilliard, in their 1939 Chevrolet Master 85.
