Possum Bourne powered his Impreza World Rally Car to a dominant victory on the second Heat of the ‘Respect Yourself’ Forest Rally. Shades of 2000 became evident from the day’s first stage as Bourne powered away from Heat 1 winner Neal Bates, the eventual margin an astounding 1 minute 35 seconds.

While Bourne dominated the day for the Outright placing, a battle royale waged between leading Group N competitors Cody Crocker and Ed Ordynski, Crocker eventually pulling clear on the day’s latter stages to finish 11 seconds up on Ordynski.

The role reversal in the top placings from Heat 1 to Heat 2 adds an interesting slant to the event, Bourne and Bates tied for first place, Crocker and Ordynski for third. That’s 4 crews on the podium at the event’s finish!
