Liddle celebrates 4WD Showroom victory

Western Australian driver, Stewart Liddle, has taken a dominant victory in the Mansfield Shire 4WD Showroom competition after a great drive in his 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X RS.

Western Australian driver, Stewart Liddle, has taken a dominant victory in the Mansfield Shire 4WD Showroom competition after a great drive in his 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X RS. 

He and co-driver, Michael Lloyd, set up their win on the first day, establishing a 59 second lead after the opening stages. 

They maintained that advantage exactly on day two, heading into the event’s longest day with a 59 second lead. 

From there, they needed to keep up their speed and ensure that the long 40km stages of the final day didn’t give their rivals a chance. 

“It’s my first ever win and the first win for the car, so we are absolutely rapt like you would never believe,” Liddle beamed.

“We had a nice clean run up the mountain and the car has just been magnificent over the three days.” 

Angus Kennard, formerly a Subaru driver, kept the pressure on all weekend in his Nissan GTR, but Liddle’s pace proved too much. 

A good battle for the final place on the podium kept fans interested over the course of the event, with three Subaru WRXs all wanting a piece of the action. In the end, it was Trevor Macleod who finished third, ahead of Ralph Norton and Josh Hilton.
