Brilliant weekend of competition at Parilla last weekend. The Richard Bennett Memorial Enduro had a great mix of vehicles, excellent weather (albeit a bit cool both nights) and awesome viewing in the spectator area. As usual, prologue and 2 laps Saturday, then 8 laps Sunday, with a half hour break between lap 4 and 5. Slowest vehicles off first, giving them the chance to finish within 1/2 hour of the fastest vehicles.
GRKCC had 7 crews competing, and after Prologue, out of 27 starters, positions were:- #936 Matthew Curtis/Gary Curtis/Jason Lloyd 1st, #621 Toby Whateley/Simon Herrmann 5th, #623 Tony Whateley/Doug Carthew 7th, #37 Richard Andrews/Jamie Andrews 9th, #158 Trevor Snow/Darrin Jocey-Prior 10th, #176 Sam Daniele 15th, and #506 Rod Holmes/Tina Holmes 25th.
Richard Andrews/Jamie Andrews didn’t get a lap completed Sunday, suffering engine issues, and Sam Daniele had a flat tyre on lap 1, needing to be brought back under tow to change wheels, which put him way behind on time. Rod Holmes/Tina Holmes were out on lap 2 with steering issues and so were Tony Whateley/Doug Carthew, running out of belts for the Can Am.
The other competitors had brilliant runs, as seen in the following Sunday lap times:-
Matthew Curtis/Jason Lloyd
Total time: 03:09:35.747 for 10 laps
Trevor Snow/Darrin Jocey Prior
Total time:03:32:45.301 for 10 laps
Toby Whateley/Simon Herrmann
Total time:03:51:47.235 for 10 laps
Finish results were: 1st Outright and 1st in Pro Class – Matthew Curtis/Gary Curtis/Jason Lloyd
4th Outright and 2nd in Prolite Class – Trevor Snow/Darrin Jocey-Prior
9th Outright and 1st in Superlite B Class – Toby Whateley/Simon Herrmann
