WRENCH TOO STRONG IN MODERN ROOKIE RALLY
After 16 hard fought stages, Peter Wrench has claimed the Rookie Rally title for Modern cars in his 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X.
Together with co-driver Robert Vickery, Wrench overcame clutch trouble during day two to take a convincing one minute and 31 second victory over the Lancer Evo VI of Scott Strong and Nathan Walker.
Igor Van Gerwen and Anthony Brandsema drove their much older 1994 Toyota Celica GT-Four into the final podium position.
“We started off today and our clutch was slipping straight out of the Silverdome, so we nursed it all the way to the start. Our crew had a look at it and told us it was gone, but we decided to drive through the stages and see how it went,” Wrench said.
“We basically nursed the car all day and had to keep the car off boost at about 6500rpm all day, and just tried to keep the revs up and not change gears too often.
“I’ve really come into tune with the car today, and after the challenges that we’ve had, it’s been quite an achievement for us.
“This is our first rally together, and only my second rally ever.
“It’s fantastic to finish first. We’ve really pushed it hard today and taken care of the car at the same time, so it’s a really fantastic result, and we’ll be back again next year.”
The winning crews celebrated their success with the traditional champagne spray at Launceston Silverdome in front of an appreciative crowd.
