Early Modern win to Kaplan

The 2004 BMW M3 CSL of Adam Kaplan and co-driver Aleshia Penny have crossed the line first in the the Duttons Garage Early Modern competition.
Kaplan has given a master display of driving across the six days of competition, and he finished three minutes and 32 seconds clear of the 2006 Subaru S204 of Jon Mitchell and Joshua Sutclife.

Mitchell was also impressive across the nearly 500 competitive kilometres, and even on the last day, was ready to pounce should Kaplan have faltered.

But in the end he had to settle for second place, with third going to Guy and John Lilleyman, six minutes 44 seconds behind Kaplan in their 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo.

Kaplan was the leader after the opening day and was never headed, but he was well aware that he was in a contest as Mitchell continued to show his speed, and potential, across the next five days.

For Kaplan, it was a great feeling to cross the line and finish on top of the Duttons Garage Early Modern podium.

“It’s the first time I’ve won this category – I didn’t care if we won or not, we just came here to have fun - sometimes a win falls out of it,” Kaplan said.

“We’ve had no real dramas, apart from some small gearbox issues and a small off-road excursion on day three, but apart from that, it’s really been fine.

“The car’s been just terrific to drive and the navigator’s been behaving herself, so it’s all been good.”
