Daniel Trevarthen and co-driver Chris Ward, driving a 2006 Holden Commodore SS, have dominated the Sports Trophy competition on Day 2 action.

The pair started the day with a 37 second buffer and finished 49 seconds clear of their rivals, Julian Page and Martin Duursma, who are tied for second.

 Page, with co-driver Diane Ridway in their 2013 Audi TT RS Plus, and Duursma and his co-driver Nick Cox, in a 2013 Lotus Exige S V6, had an intriguing battle, which is set to keep both pushing hard to the finish line tomorrow afternoon.

Trevarthen though, clearly out in front, can take it a little easier. He said he had a “fantastic day” on the run out to Whitfield and back, and was thrilled at how the big Commodore SS handled the conditions. 

“The Commodore likes backing into corners, so there was lots of sliding and throttle and we are thrilled that we have been able to build on what was only a 37 second lead overnight,” said Trevarthen.

In the Thoroughbred Trophy competition, Keith and Karl Brooke, in their 1980 Porsche 911, dominate the Thoroughbred Trophy section, having now opened up a lead of over 18 minutes on their sole rival, Brett Dillon and Geoffrey Corah, who are in a 1968 Porsche 911.

“We’ve had a great day, taking it easy and having fun,” Keith Brooke said. “We were a little worried about fuel consumption but other than that, the car is running like clockwork.”
