Joe Millington has been busy in the below events over the last few weeks. At the Giant 2W in Rotorua he placed 2nd in the under 18 age group. At the Cable Bay Enduro in Nelson he placed 7th in the under 18 age group. At the Karapoti Classic in Wellington he placed 4th in the under 18 (non-elite) age group.

Hugo Allan surprised a lot of people in the final round of the Toyota 86 championship in Taupo. The 16-year-old qualified fifth in his first-ever qualifying session in a race car. Hugh then finished eighth, 11th and eighth in the weekend’s three races. Not bad for someone still learning to drive!
