Terry Press­dee and Mark Broad­bent came from be­hind to oust fel­low Subaru Im­preza crew Si­mon Belcher/peter But­ler and clinch the vic­tory spoils at Mel­bourne.

Belcher was six sec­onds quicker on stage one, but af­ter Press­dee halved the gap on the sec­ond run, he led from stage three. David Longfel­low/danny Ward’s Im­preza had just con­sol­i­dated third when they re­tired on stage four, which left Nick and Joe Cook­clear to se­cure third over­all and take Class C.

Phil and Mick Gal­lagher took fourth over­all from stage four, tak­ing Class D in the process, while Steve Adam­son and nav­i­ga­tor Mar­cus Blenk­in­sop claimed the fi­nal place in the top five.
