Symmons Plains 6 Hour

Sunday 4 December 2022

The four mates comprising Team TOOLyota have made history by comfortably winning the inaugural Autocraft Symmons Plains 6 Hour.
With a 105 point lead at one stage mid-afternoon, the two-time B1K winners eased home in top spot 50 points clear of the MyRage Racing trio, with the north’s Storm Racing Hyundai in third, a further 30 points behind.
The TOOLsters acknowledged their good luck when the alternator in their venerable carby-engined Corolla failed and was repaired in the pre-event morning warmup, the car performing faultlessly the rest of the day.
The slow formation lap to start the event was in honour of former Event Secretary, the late Tony Hudson.
Twenty eight cars started and despite initial fears, major brake problems were not rife, and driver behaviour was exemplary for a tough track on a hot day.  The Naughty Corner was unusually, a lonely place…
The organisation was spot-on thanks to the amazing team of enthusiastic and experienced volunteers.
An excellent inaugural event.
