Well done Graham. Car looks nice and collected on that run.

Thanks for photos and Stage results Gazza. Really looks like it's going to be a nice close series. Nice couple of shots there with stray wheel and loose screw.

Had been wondering if my Lancer might be a little short on legs when it comes to the more open tracks. Hopefully it's speed will improve a bit as the motor runs in.

Have fun boys. You've probably got another long day ahead of you.

Rally on!

Gotta thank Gaz so far for the results and pics . Congrats on the other podiumites Bad luck stories this stage ,Kidvoltage , your car was motoring really well when one of your braids decided to come off in full flight. A few bends later and your tyre (as per pic) decided he'd had enough and departed the car. This put you behind the 8 ball . Its fixed and hopefully next stage will be better.Conti Rowlands car decided to unravel a few feet of armature wire and die. Thats now been replaced and ready for Stage 2. Highlander , fixed your guide and and unfortunatly the grip level is way down as was Syd's car. Both were scuffed up and cleaned before heat and both were slip sliding away.Will do the same for the next stage. Ah well better get back to it .Check in later. Go dem Frogs
Cheers Craig

28th wahooooo...... only thing I'll read in to the stage 1 results for me is that the car must be smooth consistent as it's fastest lap time is 6th slowest.

Well done on running the first stage.... that last photo, are those two brothers :)

Thanks to teamred and gaz for getting Round 1 in the books and I'm looking forward to Round 2. Congrats to Graham, Matt and Craig on the podium but don't get too comfortable cuz Round 2 is my round to make a move, well at least I hope so.

Regards

ROE and UK, following in the footsteps of the US in round 1, beat the Oz contingency at an Oz track!! I am pleasently suprised and hope it continues - hope my celebratory cup of tea I am having is not too premature!

It is all so close, only 10 seconds seperating the top 13 means it is still anyones round, which is how it should be.

HELL'S BELLS!!!!! You could've knocked me down with a feather!!! First I win at my local club rallying my LPV WRC Porsche 997 on Friday night, now a win in the SCX WRC with the LPV Citroen C4, It's all about letters and numbers!

I'm also amazed that all three of the other Team Umbria cars are all bunched together.

Many thanks for some great shots there and great video too. We now eagerly await the results of the other two stages at Minto Rally Park.

Thanks to everyone involved in running the first stage.

Graham, Ben fatto! Grande resultato! I'm tickled pink to come in so well. Added to watching a fantastic race in the Chinese GP, not a bad morning for me (and the sun is blasting here in old south Wales).

The photos and video of the event are cracking, and I'm glad you've started a tradition with the pics of Ron and Ron, da management. Hope it continues.

Good luck and have fun with second stage.

It's hot out there, isn't it? 0.2 secs between 1st and 2nd is damn close!

We should have mentioned before the race, but there will only be two stages in round 2, mainly due to the time involved, the cars will still be doing their 8 minute minimum, it's just the time involved in setting up and getting 42 cars to the line for each stage is huge, note to those running a round .... leave plenty of time for the event

Some of the tyres on quite a few of the cars would not "grip up" during the event.

All the cars had their braids and tyres cleaned before each stage, the tyres were run up on a wet rag with a bit of liquid soap on it
