A challenging days racing at the Albins ARB Goondiwindi 400 with rollovers, track blockages and spectacular off road racing as a record field of 91 teams took to the track today for the 40th anniversary event.

Troy Duff and Daniel Mansfield #124 put in a blistering time for the Goondiwindi Tyre Service Top 10 Shoot Out to secure pole position for the race proper. Unfortunately for Duff, a flat tyre early in lap one, moving him down the order at the end of the days racing.

Brad Gallard #454 was an early exit from the Albins ARB Goondiwindi 400 after rolling the Geiser Brothers Trophy Truck in the prologue.

First to cross the finish line at the end of the 80km lap was Aaron James and Peter Luckraft #93 ahead of Talbot Cox and Angus Stainley #16 with Ryan and Nev Taylor #6 in third place. However, these results would change as time allowances came through for a track blockage incident.

After starting out of fourth place, Raana Horan slid his new Jimco’s right rear into a substantial tree at the 50km mark, resulting in a track blockage for the following eight teams. Thanks to the efforts of Aaron and Liz Haby in #2 Element, the track blockage was cleared and the eight teams continued racing. The organisers spent a large amount of time reviewing video footage from the cars involved to verify the time lost by individual competitors at the incident.

Unfortunately, for Haby, a loss of oil in the #2 resulted in their withdrawal from the event not long after. During the recovery process of Horan’s #89, the track was again blocked with a further two cars credited with time, one of which was Jack Rhodes moving him into pole position for Sunday’s race start.

Racing gets underway at 8am tomorrow for a further four laps of the 80km melon hole course.
