Bentley on top of Top 10
Saturday, 28 April 2012
The Top 10 Shoot Out at the Exact Mining Bentleys Cabin Park Flinders 400 has reordered the start grid for today’s section 1 with Hayden Bentley topping the time sheets with a 5:17.3

1319b_sm Improving from seventh to second was Aaron Haby in the #57 Element Pro Buggy in 5:19.7 with Brenton and Terry Forsyth rounding out the top 10 podium in 5:20.4.

Andrew Kittle and Andrew Kerr have moved from third to fourth, a mere 0.4 seconds behind Forsyth in 5:20.8 in the #14 Peter Kittle Motor Sport Jimco.

Jack Rhodes and Craig Mattingly lost their first outright from prologue, moving back into fifth in 5:22.0. Ever so close behind is Carl Haby and Brenton Gallash, moving from fourth to sixth in 5:22.4, while Aaron James and Brett Plant are the first of the ProLites in seventh in 5:29. James and Grant Madden had an out of the ordinary slow run taking out eighth in 5:30.5.

1319c_sm Both Brad Gallard and Colin Hunter were seeded into the top 10 start order but were unable greet the start line, both teams still rectifying repairs to their vehicles. This allowed the original tenth placed Andrew Mowles more time to weld up the #135 Razorback after he hit one of the tractor tyres on the straight; Mowles thinking he only had a flat tyre until he crossed the finish line and returned to the pit.

The Hunter Racing team are busy fixing the Extreme 4WD #808 with gear shift dramas their issue for the day. Brad Gallard was replacing the transmission in the Monster Geiser Truck hoping to be ready for today’s race start.

1319d_sm Hayden Bentley won the award for the longest jump, throwing the Racer #18 25.5 metres off the Performance Metals Jump with Carl Haby and Brenton Gallash jumping the #56 21.5 metres. Not far behind was Andrew Kittle and Aaron Haby tied on 21 metres, Wes Cowie on 20.5 metres and Matthew Kittle, Aaron James and James Madden all on 20 metres.

Racing gets underway at 1:30pm for four laps of the shortened track of 35km.
