The 40th anniversary Teagle Excavations ARB Pines Enduro has been run and won, and in the heart and soul spirit of off road racing, Tyler Owen and Oliver Stephens have taken outright honours, saluting the checkered flag 24 years after their grandfather Reg Owen engraved his name on the perpetual trophy.

The cousins, campaigning Uncle Matt’s #41 Alumi Craft, have claimed their first outright win, snatching the victory from the last years winners Matt Hanson and Leigh Wells, after power steering issues slowed the #7 SMU Racing Jimco on the last lap. The nail biting finish saw Owen and Stephens edge out Hanson and Wells by just 5.050seconds after 462km of gruelling off road racing through the picturesque pine forests in the south east of South Australia.

Grit and determination saw Danny Brown and George Apted hold onto third outright after the #42 Jimco got bogged in slow corner on the last lap. They had pulled enough of a time buffer over fourth place, and in conjunction with the quick response from recovery to extract them from their predicament, were able to cross the finish line 2m47seconds ahead of Aaron and Liz Haby #2.

Haby’s day was not without dramas either; rear brake issues on lap two saw them clock in a 3minute slower lap time as they headed into the first of the two half hour service breaks. The team sending the Element Prodigy #2 out for the restart with brakes on three of the four wheels.

Mark Burrows and Sean Ratcliffe #21 were 4m01s shy of the Haby’s to round out the Teagle Excavations ARB Pines Enduro top five.

Millicent turned on four seasons in one day over the weekend with rain and wind broken up by clear sunshine and clear skies. The sand track through the forest absorbed the rain and the drainage work done but the Millicent Sand Buggy Club and Teagle Excavations to the quarry track, coupled with the wind, saw slippery and challenging conditions, but great viewing for the large crowd of spectators.
