Neal Bates and Possum Bourne have claimed a dual win of Rally Queensland 2000, Neal Bates leading home Bourne by 7 seconds during Heat 1, Bourne reversing the situation to lead home Bates by 22 seconds in Heat 2. Minor problems for both drivers during the weekend, Bourne succumbing to a troublesome rear differential on Saturday while Bates struggled with the handling of the Corolla WRCar after nudging a bank during today’s opening stages.

In Group N Subaru’s Cody Crocker has taken a clean sweep of the class, untouchable over the entire weekend Crocker contributed the win to the efforts that the Subaru Team have put into the setup and development of the Impreza WRX. Crocker led home rival Ed Ordynski, the Mitsubishi Ralliart Team will have some homework to complete prior to the 4th Round of the ARC in Coffs Harbour.
