Australasian Young Drivers Championships
Annual On-Line


2010 Winner -
GARETH RATTRAY (TAS)

Gareth Rattray of Tasmania wins the Alabar Australasian Young Drivers Championship

by HRNSW

After an amazing week of racing and activities, the representatives of the Alabar Australasian Young Drivers Championships have all headed back to
their respective states and country, none happier than the winner of the series Gareth Rattray.

Rattray had a commanding lead early in the series and was able to sustain it right through into the finals on Sunday as part of the 2010 Watpac
Inter Dominion Finals day racing card.

Rattray won the series on 76 points, with Dexter Dunn of NZ South Island making the most of his limited opportunities to finish second overall with a
point score of 56. Completing the top three standings was fellow kiwi Roydon Downey, the NZ North Island representative, on 52 points.

HRNSW would like to thank the major sponsors of the series Alabar Bloodstock for their ongoing support of development in the industry. Special thanks
also to the chaperones Rachael and David Micallef.
