The results are in!

A few new champions:
Gav Mcarthy - Men's Grand Loop Champion
Ashley Burgess - Women's Grand Loop Champion

A storming descent by Richard Leacock to take the fastest descent title, but then he is a downhiller!

Awesome evening all round with $180 raised for the Makara Peak Supporters. A huge thank you to all the volunteers and those who participated.

Full report and photos to appear on the Bushlove website soon... :satan:

Also Bushlove Racing has other events planned, so watch this space... :thumbsup:

Thanks very much to everyone who came out to support the event and lay down a time o the hollowed Grand Loop. We're glad it went well and everyone had a good time and got some choccy egg!

We'll be publishing all the pictures we took in the next day or so. In the meantime we just wanted to extend again our thanks to everyone for your support and especially our awesome marshals and Shane (Rya) taking the summit splits. We're looking forward to doing it again. If you have any feedback, please pass it along to bga@bushloveracingDOTcom or davo@bushloveracingDOTcom. We're very receptive to any ideas for improvement!

I witnessed three of the guns wrecking high up on Ridgeline. Ricky and Tom took themselves out on the same tight corner, although Ricky got more airtime. Ed made it another 20m past that point before pressing the ejector button. Glad you boys are ok!

I see Al has just posted the results! Woot! Good one Al!

Well done everyone, and thanks again for coming. Watch this space and the bushloveracing.com blog for more...
