It doesn’t get much better than the conditions that greeted competitors today at the tenth anniversary running of the Glenroy Plains Produce and PMD Race Products Off Road Masters.

Mother Nature turned on a perfect winters day with the sun shining on the Moorex venue and the grassy green track in great racing condition.

Garry Turnbull with Chris and Tyson Proud sharing the navigating duties topped the Saturday timesheets after 4 laps of the 30km course. Turnbull, who won the inaugural event in 2009, has loaded the Aceco #79 and headed back to their Mount Gambier workshop to remove the engine and replace a leaking rear main oil seal.

Todd Lehmann and Aaron Bermingham slotted the #85 Bullet into second place with brothers Damien and Ben Nicol #430 rounding out the podium for day 1 at the Glenroy Plains Produce and PMD Race Products Off Road Masters.

Worthy of a special mention is the only team to compete at all ten of the Glenroy Plains Produce and PMD Race Products Off Road Masters; Craig Button with son Adam and David Anderson navigating this year, currently sits in 12th outright and commented Moorex was a great event and he loved coming here.

Unfortunately for Toby Reimann and Craig Redding the replacement $100 engine installed in the Scorpion post Waikerie failed in the first lap and it’s back to the drawing board for the young gun. James Tyrrell and Rhys Elliott #828 had clutch dramas in the Nissan Patrol and will spent the night installing a new clutch when the replacement arrives from Melbourne. The family affair of Greg Ryan with sons Ed and Alex sharing the co-driving and navigating roles had a flat tyre on lap two in the #261 Southern Cross but are planning on greeting the starter for Sundays 9am drop of the flag.

Andrew Cameron with Anthony Hayes and Jack Cameron in the navigators seat of the #560 GMC Siera Pick Up had a ‘mystery clunk’ and parked it in the pits to solve the issue and hopefully will go racing tomorrow.

A rear arm failure in the #281 Hornet of Dean Carter and Bradley Jacobs saw the duo out of the race on lap three. We’re told that the issue is now repaired and the team will be race ready for Sundays five remaining laps. Podium contenders Daryl Nissen and Andrew Harness ended their Of Road Masters adventure on lap four when the power plant in the #164 Sore buggy let go.
