Subaru's Possum Bourne has claimed the first Heat of the Cooper's Pale Ale Rally of SA in atrocious conditions that turned many of the day's stages to little more than muddy tracks. Bourne led home Toyota's Neal Bates by 34 seconds after trailing the Corolla World Rally Car at the midday break, however the afternoon stages suited Bourne and the Impreza package powered through the stages stripping time off Bates.

In Group N Ed Ordynski thrilled the home crowds with a skillful and aggressive drive to hold off Cody Crocker who struggled during the afternoon stages with a spin and a loss of boost. Ordynski steered clear of any dramas despite the treacherous road conditions and ended the day almost a full minute ahead of the Impreza of Crocker.
