SUM­MER­FIELD CHASES FOURTH TI­TLE

Northern Outlook - - OUT & ABOUT -

Ran­giora’s Matt Sum­mer­field is chas­ing a fourth straight win in the Ash­ley For­est Rally sprint this week­end. Sum­mer­field, who re­lin­quished his Han­mer Rally Crown a fort­night ago, will have to con­tend with World Rally driver Hay­don Pad­don. Pad­don won the event on de­but in 2011, but Sum­mer­field is the first driver to win three con­sec­u­tive ti­tles in three dif­fer­ent cars while course record holder Sloan Cox can’t be ig­nored as a con­tender. The driv­ers race the clock over a 1.7km gravel sur­face over two days from 9.30am both days.
