43 cars have completed the challenges of Australia Classic 2013 Cairns, the precision classic car rally that concluded yesterday. The Awards Gala dinner was held at the Shangri-La with competitors, marshals, sponsors and their guests attending.

greg-karen-1Together we have raised $1,560 between us at the raffle for Variety – the Children’s Charity with the prizes offered by generous donations. Then the winners of all fifteen “1/100″ challenges were announced and awarded small hourglass trophies; notably both the Ron Vis / Scott Vis and the Andrew Chand / Luke Olholm teams took two stage wins each.

Then we got to the main prizes with car number 32, Les and Dane Forrester taking the 3rd position with 2,231 penalty points driving a Porsche 930 Turbo. Second place went to last year’s winners: car #44 with Andrew Chand and Luke Olholm on board – the Cobra replica has collected 1,926 points. The overall winner team, with 1,772 penalty points, was the Karen and Greg Smith duo in their Ford Falcon XM ute. The complete results can be downloaded by clicking below.

The event was a great success and has enjoyed a considerable growth from last year. The organisers wish to thank all the participants, marshals and sponsoring partners. See you all in a year’s time!
