Rodda and Ryan on the Pace at Rallye Wattle Range


Rally Power Motorsport’s James Rodda and co-driver Claire Ryan have started the 2012 SA Rally Championship with a strong 2nd outright result at the inaugural Rallye Wattle Range.

The new rally ran on Friday 13th – Saturday 14th and was based out of Millicent, with stages around both Millicent and Beachport townships. Some very fast, challenging stages were used, ones that would reward commitment to pace notes, but also care in rougher sections.
