Round The Bend

The 2018 BOTT Adelaide Hills Rally has been run and won, with Harry Bates and John McCarthy taking out their second CAMS Australian Rally Championship (ARC) round win for the year.

Bates and McCarthy’s round victory was kick-started on Friday night when the Toyota pilots won both runs during the inaugural Super Special Stage at The Bend Motorsport Park.

The world-class circuit, which opened earlier this year, hosted the opening two stages, as Australia’s best rally drivers went head-to-head around a tailor-made stage.
