Subaru Safari Tasmania - 2006 Round

The 2006 Tasmanian Round (Subaru Safari Tasmania) of the NEC Australian Rally Championship has been won and run with privateer Dean Herridge and Bill Hayes (Subaru Spec C) coming away with a round win from Simon and Sue Evans (TRD Corolla) and Neil Bates and Coral Taylor third in the second TRD Corolla.

Scott Pedder and Glen Weston from Team Mitsubishi Ralliart also come away with a heat win after a terrific effort for Heat Two after a ruptured fuel tank put them out of heat one.

Motorsport Safety and Rescue Pty Ltd would like to congratulate all the place getters including the supporters of the Tasmanian Rally Challenge.

The event was conducted in the Southern Forests near Geeveston.

The weekend was relatively quite for the team with one incident on the Saturday with a co driver suffering a minor injury. On the Sunday the crews checked out two crews after mishaps but fortunately no one required any further treatment.

A total of seven First Intervention Vehicles was used with the regular crew welcoming Dr Michael Kluger to the team for his first rally event.

With the postponed Panthers Rally in NSW our next event will be the Quit Targa West Rally in Western Australia.
