Finishing second outright in their ex Ralliart Evo 9, Matt Selley and co-driver Hamish McKendrick are delighted with the result of their first full test of a new competition vehicle at last weekend’s Adelaide Hills Tarmac Rally.

“We attempted to run the car in January at Targa Wrest Point but an engine failure only 13 kms into the first stage brought that to an abrupt end,” said Matt.

“The team have spent weeks since then getting the car to where we want it to be and I reckon we are nearly there.”
