In Thoroughbred, Keith Brooke in his 1980 Porsche 911 leads Brett Dillon by two minutes and 32 seconds after Day 1.

Brooke made his move on the fourth stage where he increased his lead by 48 seconds, then a great final run up Mount Buller saw the lead extended by a further 56 seconds.

The fact that Brooke is driving at all is remarkable, considering eight weeks ago he underwent a hip replacement.

“I gave the surgeon strict instructions that I had to be ready and here I am,” he said.

“It’s been a great day, we started the day slowly because of the challenging conditions, as well as getting used to the changes we made to the car, but overall we are very happy.”

Daniel Trevarthen from NSW is making the early running in the Sports Trophy class. Driving a 2006 Holden Commodore SS, Trevarthen increased his lead at every stage to finish Day 1 37 seconds clear of Julian Page in a 2013 Audi TT RS Plus.

Martin Duursma, driving a 2013 Lotus Exige S V6 lost 13 seconds on the final Mount Buller stage to end the day 57 seconds in arrears.
