2006 Moonshine Rally Report

8 December 2006

Rodney and Helen Ferguson continued their tremendous run of form with victory in the Moonshine Rally. Unlike normal championship rallies, this rally was run on a handicap basis, so any crew could win overall, regardless of what class they had entered. The class structure for this rally was also unusual, with the four classes being for Rallyschool, Novices, Experts/Semi-experts, and Alan Dorman. Such is his level of success, it was deemed necessary to have instructions written specifically for the 4 time champion. In the event, Alan still only picked up 5 marks and finished in 2nd place overall. Third went to James Woods/Chris Ragg, who took up the challenge of competing in the Alan Dorman class. They matched Dorman for most of the rally, and finished not far behind on 9 marks. Fourth went to Ronnie and Aaron Mitchell, who won the Expert/Semi-Expert class. The best of the Rallyschool crews was Neil and Rebecca Fletcher, who won despite missing the final secret check of the night.
