Brilliant victory for Clark in Vintage class

The popular Shannons Vintage class has been won by Wayne Clark and Trevor Berriman Copeland in their beautiful 1938 Dodge Speedster Special.


The popular Shannons Vintage class has been won by Wayne Clark and Trevor Berriman Copeland in their beautiful 1938 Dodge Speedster Special.

They finished more than an hour ahead of Graham Copeland and Josh Herbert in a 1936 Desoto Special.

Copeland missed a day due to mechanical problems early in the event, allowing the Clark/Berriman team a relatively easy run to victory.

However, it cars that are nearly 80 years old, it’s now easy task to get them to the finish, and both Clark and Copeland did a sterling job.

“We had to do an extra day this year, but the car stood up very well – she’s been very reliable,” Clark said.

“We had a minor problem with a carburettor on day three, but we fixed it fairly quickly and apart from that it’s been absolutely beautiful.

“Our tyres aren’t suited for wet roads and it was certainly slippery and interesting on the last day. This car actually runs light truck tyres, so you can imagine how that felt like.”
