The Subaru Australia duo of Possum Bourne and Cody Crocker have taken the opening Heat of the 2000 Rally NSW held today in the costal resort of Coffs Harbour. Bourne held an early advantage over Toyota’s Neal Bates, unfortunately the unlucky Corolla World Rally Car driver retired on Special Stage 7 after crushing the radiator after an awkward landing just 700m before the end of the stage.

In Group N Crocker fought with Mitsubishi’s Ed Ordynski throughout the day, the pair finishing just 5 seconds apart, the closest gap all year. The gap between Crocker and Ordynski never exceeded more than 3 seconds during the days stages, the Subaru driver finally hitting home his advantage to claim second place outright.
