Toyota Gazoo Racing Australia’s Harry Bates and John McCarthy’s perfect start to 2019 continued in round two, winning the Netier National Capital Rally.
While Bates and McCarthy claimed an impressive seven out of eight stage wins across the two heats, they were challenged by Subaru do Motorsport’s Molly Taylor and Malcolm Read, who claimed a stage of their own, adding another chapter to the Subaru/Toyota rivalry of Australian rally.
Repco Rally Team’s Mick Patton and Bernie Webb finished the event in third after a strong performance across both heats, finishing third in heat one and fourth in heat two.
In the CAMS ARC 2WD Championship, Ethan Pickstock and Lisi Phillips took out the round win, in a car with plenty of history. Their Mitsubishi Mirage was formerly driven by CAMS ARC regular Molly Taylor.
