MTA NSW congratulates both Glen Raymond and Kate Catford in winning the Mitta Mountain Rally held in and around Mitta Mitta in Victoria’s high country on Saturday 2nd March. Driving their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9 they won with a 2 minute 32 second lead whilst also winning the NSW Rally Championship component of the rally. Second place were Tristan Kent and Robert Males in another Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9, with third outright place going to Richard Shimmon and Jim Gleeson in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 7.
The event this year is Round 1 of the 2019 Victorian Rally Championship, Round 1 of the NSW Rally Championship and Round 1 of the East Coast Classic Rally Series. Mitta Mitta is an hour’s drive south east of Albury/Wodonga in north eastern Victoria. It also includes a separate event – the 2019 Mitta Masters; catering for just classic cars; over thirty years old, and recognising the most successful classic drivers and co-drivers in their 50’s, 60’s and over 70’s.
The Mitta Masters is run as a Multi Club event and will also form part of the 2019 HRA Rally Championship. The event will be blind, with only five stages of 14-55 km distance each, totalling more than 135 km with no repeats, looping out of the small town of Mitta Mitta.
MTA NSW again congratulates the team of Glen Raymond and Kate Catford, along with all the competing teams.
