Falcon Ute takes surprise TSD Trophy win

After an intriguing final day in the Budget TSD Trophy competition, Darryl and Andrew Marshall have rocketed from third place to win the category in their Ford Falcon Ute.

Trailing by 12 points at the start of the day, the Marshalls put in a near flawless display over the final six stages to take a two point victory over the Alfa Romeo GT of Gerard Knapp and Roger Campbell.

Brian and Justin Marshall had victory almost in their sights after day five, but two poor stages on the final day cost them victory and relegated their to third place.

Fourth place went to last year’s winners, Alan and Heather Gluyas in a Toyota 86, with fifth place going to Neil Wrigley and Chris Neilsen in a Porsche Cayman R.
