Realish Rally Championship Round 1 – Australia – Results

Lazaros Filippakos took a commanding win at the first round of the Realish Rally Championship 2.0 at Australia. Winning five of the six stages, the Greek driver held a commanding lead of 71 seconds at the finish. The Bad Pun Racing duo of Mark Gormley and Mark Singleton secured the remaining podium places to give the team an early lead in the Teams Championship.

Defending Realish Rally champion Neil Heatlie, however, had a disappointing event, finishing just outside the points in 9th. He was part of a tight midfield group which saw five drivers separated by just over thirty seconds.

The next round is at New Zealand and starts on Wednesday, 29th January 2020. Full championship details are available on the championship page and the Realish Racing Forums.
