Ottey Offroad Racing - Crookwell Gravel Pit Challenge

A cold and wet weekend in the dirt proved successful for the team, earning poll position after qualifying fastest on Saturday mornings prologue.

Maintaining a high position throughout the weekend, it came down to the last heat on the Sunday where our luck would change.

After gaining the outright position due to a DNF by Glen Spizzo - an unfortunate meeting with a tree and a broken arm, we were let down by a gearbox failure and were forced to retire from the race.  However our previous times and position were enough to gain us 3rd in class for the event.

With the next event only a month or so away the race is on to upgrade the gearbox and prepare for the Hedweld Milbrodale Mountain Classic on the 13th and 14th of June, held in the Hunter Valley south-west of Singleton.  The teams favourite event and one that spectators will enjoy with 4 car starts and the coveted Man of the Mountain title up for grabs.

Stay tuned on twitter @OtteyRacing112 for updates on the repair of the car and our next event.
