Event > South Auckland Car Club Hillclimb at Maramarua
Back in September when I was marshalling for the Hamilton Car Club's MTA/Trelawney Stud Rally of Maramarua, I met a Whangaparaoa-based photographer by the name of Steve Russell. Steve is a huge fan of clubman and grassroots level motorsport, and when he's not working, he's pointing his lens at any rally, rallysprint or hillclimb event that he can get to.
This past weekend, Steve once again returned to the Maramarua Forest for Round 3 of the South Auckland Car Club's Hillclimb Interclub Series.
The hillclimb was completed by a strong field of 33 cars, with Warwick Redfern finishing 1st, Lance Williams taking 2nd, and Dave Strong rounding out the top 3. You can view the full results on the South Auckland Car Club website.
Steve seems to have a knack of being at the right place at the right time to take photos...
...and it looks like there were some interesting moments on the dry and dusty track, as Daniel Norris demonstrates here.
Steve's next rallying fix is the Epay Silver Fern Rally that begins in Auckland this weekend, and I'm sure he'll have some more get photos to show us from this event.
