A BIG well done and congratulations to Mark O'Connor
in his standard AUII XR8 220 for his overall 3rd place after running a close 2nd to Peter Brock for the first two days. O'Connor was only beaten by Brock and Michael Stillwell in his Mustang, who is an experienced touring car racer from days gone by.
Mark even beat Brock in one event. No mean feat when you consider Brocks car is a purpose built Targa beast with a cage.
Meanwhile, Dick Johnson was a distant 8th outright in his DJR 320. The only time Dick beat Mark was the 400m flying sprint and only by a m%^ks hair .
The BA320 couldn't even beat the AU220 at the drags!
