Mother Nature turned on a cold and wet Saturday for the 41 teams that fronted to the Wynarka farmlands for the Gotcha Glass Wynarka Enduro held in the South Australian Murraylands today.

Toby Whateley and Simon Herrmann topped the prologue timesheets but not able to sustain the pace and an unscheduled pit stop on lap two dropped them back to seventh outright at the overnight break after 6 continuous laps – 120km – of racing today.

The second of the Loveday 4X4 Adventure Park stable with Tony Whateley behind the wheel and Jodie Veron in the navigators seat slotted into a prologue second position but came unstuck on lap two, the #421 Rush Truck performing some spectacular aerobatic gymnastics in the inner arena to end their weekend of off road racing. Damage to the truck and Tony’s pride aside, both Tony and Jodie where unhurt in the rollover.

Brad Gallard with second generation racers Paris and Jesse Gallard sharing the navigating duties rounded out the prologue podium and put in an awesome drive to sit at the top of the time sheets at the overnight break.

Dave Hall and Michael Ulbrich drove the Murphy #134 ProLite into third place with Brett Rogers and Brett Richardson #95 just 38seconds behind in fourth place. Garry Turnbull with daughters Tamara and Sara battling for the left hand seat rounded out the Gotcha Glass Wynarka Enduro top five.

Of the 41 entries 24 completed the 6 lap race distance today. With the DNF list containing of some of South Australia’s finest names like Bentley, Cowie, Cowie, Smith, Erceg and Whateley, of notable mention is young Lauren Andrews #137 with Dad Rich Andrews navigating.

Lauren is a regular at the annual Ladies and Juniors event, but after some convincing from Dad, decided to take the plunge and drive the Gotcha Glass Wynarka Enduro. After clocking in some impressive mid 13minute lap times, electrical issues ended their Saturday’s racing. Some more convincing talking from the timing officials will hopefully see Lauren back in the driver’s seat tomorrow, but if not, definitely in the navigators seat as the team are confident they found and fixed the issue.

Racing resumes at 9am tomorrow with 8 continuous laps of the 20km course. Stay up to date with live results on offroadracing.com.au
