Brendo wins Rally of Lithgow

Brendo and Rhianon have finshed today's Rally of Lithgow with a win.  Run as a round of the NSW State Rally Championship for the first time, the event consisted of 9 stages totalling 142 kilometres of gravel stages.

 

Brendo led the event from the first stage, and won the event by over four minutes in the RallySchool.com.au Subaru WRX.  Road conditions were quite rocky and crews were faced with very dusty conditions in the three night stages.      

Using the event as another chance to gain more pace noting experience and time behind the wheel, Brendo was really pleased with his result.

"Once again I really enjoyed this rally," he said. "The car performed brilliantly and despite us never having competed in it before, everything went to plan."

"We didn't have spotlights fitted for the night stages so we tried to get a sizeable lead at the end of the daylight stages to allow us to back off at night.  Thankfully, that went to plan and we were able to ease off for the final two stages."

"RallySchool also supplied the zero and double zero cars for the event, so it was great that we were able to come away with the win after Mick (Ryan, RallySchool's owner) contributed so much to the rally," Brendo added.

It was a successful day for the Reeves family with Brendo and Rhianon's brother, Nathan, winning the Bonnie Doon Rallysprint in Victoria with Rory Lyle calling the notes.

Brendo's next event is Targa Tasmania where he will drive a Mazda 3 MPS for Mazda Motorsport.  The rally starts on April 28.
