The final Baskerville 1000 event for 2022 was Sunday 6 November.
The 13th Autocraft Baskerville 1000 was a ripper – fabulous weather, all starters finished, and record pointscore of 1025 points amassed by the outright winners.
The Mitsubishi Lance-a-Lot team of Peter and Adam Bellchambers joined by previous winner Steve Smith was victorious after a solid performance from the get-go.
After six hours and 267 laps the team was just 10 points clear of (also previous winners) Team Newie’s Mitsubishi Magna, which had an all-afternoon cat-and-mouse stoush with two-time winners Tool Racing’s Toyota, which finished third.
After leading for a while, the Toolsters managed to salvage third outright despite losing time in the pits investigating a driveshaft boot failure.
Another stellar performance by the large contingent of fantastic volunteer officials who, as usual, made the day happen smoothly. Thanks all!
The official charity was Bonorong Wildlife Park and Hospital, which will receive donations of old blankets and a cash donation from the HSCC and the B1K Committee.
