Bosch Australian Rally Championship: Victory for Eli Evans in the Quit Forest Rally
At the wheel of the Honda Jazz G2, Eli Evans won the second round of the Bosch 2WD ARC in a flawless drive to take the overall round and maximum points to open a handy 44 point lead over the Nissan of Jack Monkhouse.
Monkhouse finished third in the second heat of the event behind the second works Honda Jazz G2 of Mark Pedder.
Despite claiming both heats, Evans admitted the Quit Forest Rally was an extremely tough event.
?It?s been a hard weekend and this is one of the toughest events on the calendar due to the gravel stages and high attrition rates but we had a great run,? said Evans.
? It gives us confidence heading into Queensland especially with the prospect of going up against my brother, four times champion Simon Evans, who will be debuting a new Mazda 2 at the International Rally of Queensland on the 26 and 27 May.?
