Above: Phil McGuiness and Daniel Peart in the 80 Series Winch Truck

Queensland’s Manar Park played host to the King Of The Park Challenge over the first weekend in October.

The 6 hours of actual racing on the 13+ km Course featured steep hills, rock ledges, creek beds and tight twisty bulldust filled tracks. The tough course took its toll on the vehicles with only a handful of the twenty plus starters still running at the end of the day. Bruce Fraser in his Redback Buggy came out hard and fast then backed off to conserve his vehicle to take out first place in the Buggy based class. Phil McGuinness had a fast steady run in his turbo petrol 80 series winch truck and despite rolling on his side, and later on half ripping the front end out, managed to win the vehicle based class.
