Description: 01 Oct - Mt Thomas Gravel Sprint

Date: 01/10/2017

A great piece of 4km forestry road, Mt Thomas is an awesome fast blast with a bit of everything, fast, technical climb then along a ridgeline through the forest and a twisty downhill finish.

Congratulations to Matt Penrose for winning in his mighty Ex-Trevor Crowe WRX. He won convincingly with a margin of 5 seconds from Job Quantock who's getting to grips with the Skoda AP4. Matt Summerfield was only 1 seconds behind in a borrowed Evo 3 (has he switched to Mitsubishi once and for all? :)

Class 1 0-1300cc winner Chris Herdman (Starlet) still dominates the category, winning by 5 seconds from Ryan Blacktopp also in a Starlet.

Class 2 1301-1600cc winner David Birkett (Levin, Ex-David Holder) had a great battle with the fast improving Nick Marston (Sprinter).

Class 3 1600cc+ winner Ari Pettigrew only just beat the experienced Andrew Sim in the battle of the Fiestas as Andrew fought back only to miss out by less than 0.2 seconds.
