Possum Bourne has crashed out of the Rally of Melbourne on Ben Cairn, SS6. Ben Cairn is a fast 15km downhill stage run almost entirely on bitument - and last night 1/2" of snow fell making it terribly slippery

The crew are ok but have retired from Heat 1.

Cody Crocker & Greg Foletta driving a Group N Subaru Impreza, have won the first Heat of the Rally of Melbourne.

Cody had only rear wheel drive and had a lead of only 5 seconds over Ed Ordynski going into the final stage - but he held on to win by 3 seconds.

This is Cody's first heat win and the first time since 1992 that a Group N car has won a round or heat of the Australian Rally Championship.
