1st drivetravel.com Modern Outright - Tony Sullens

This is better than my first win, it's awesome.

We didn't come down here with any preconceived ideas and to pull off another win in the dry is a good thing for me, I'm very happy.

Khumo tyres is the only sponsor I have, the rest of the money has come out of my own pocket and we just built the car and did it ourselves.

2nd drivetravel.com Modern - Jim Richards

I feel fantastic about coming second. The car's been brilliant. We had some very slippery conditions and it performed brilliantly.

We could probably win with this car, but I didn't have time to prepare this car properly.

But we might come back with a different car -- this has been great, but we could come back with something new, beaut and faster.

3rd drivetravel.com Modern - Tony Longhurst

It's great to be on the podium, from ninth to fourth and now third.

I messed up yesterday afternoon and I should have run harder on the first day.

We had a great finish today and we went very well. I think we'll come back for another try -- it's been a long event and I'm all worn out.

1st Shannons Classic Outright - Rex Broadbent

We are just wrung out. This is definitely the hardest event we've ever been and we are so glad to be here.

Introducing an outright classic category has been a boon to competitors like me.

The handicap system is great to make equity for all, but the organisers have recognised there should be an outright and there is now and full credit to the event for doing so.

We are thrilled to win it.

2nd Shannons Classic Outright and 1st Classic Handicap - Bill Pye

We are a bit surprised to have gone close in outright classic. The rain helped us a bit today and had we had a little bit more we may have got both (outright and handicap).

We've been working for three years to get this -- we are rapt. It was good to drive past all the stages on the last day in which I've had problems before.
