After Round 4 of the 2016 CAMS, PGS Industries WAORC the chase for outright and class points are still wide open. With the ability for competitors to drop their worst point score it is still anybodies game heading into the Round 5
Brett Smiths struck a telling blow, on a weekend where his closest rivals, Elphinstone and Cooper dropped points, Smith capitalised with victory at the Kalgoorlie 400. With Elphinstone now a distant 3rd, Cooper still has his destiny within his own hands. If Cooper can win Rounds 5 and 6, regardless of Smiths results he will claim the Outright title. Extreme 4wd competitors Russell Cullen and Garry Povah sit 4th and 5th and have a realistic shot at 3rd outright if results go their way for the remainder of the year. 6th, 7th, 8th & 9th are occupied by the Production 4wds of Van Geest, May, Bentink and Armstrong who have all shown great consistency this year
Cooper holds a strong lead over Elphinstone and Agrela, but the last 2 rounds will be where this class championship is decided. With the class winners at the first 4 rounds going to 3 different drivers, the Pro Buggy class championship is going to be a fight right down to the wire
Pro Lite Buggy
With 4 perfect wins in class this season Brett Smith has almost sewn up the Prolite class already. However the man who placed 3rd outright at Kalgoorlie Bernard Holt still has a mathematical chance of knocking off the Southern Cross racing team. Wayne Holt currently sits in 3rd and will be looking for any chance to climb the class ladder
Aaron Dark leads the Super 1650 class from Nathaniel Edwards, Jeremy Lia and Dave Cowan. All four are still in with a shot at taking out the class championship, ensuring that the final 2 rounds of the year are going to be red hot!
Peter Doney, Greg Pickersgill, Adam Flanagan and Darryl Hardman are seperated by just 94 points with 2 rounds to go. This means that the class battle is still well and truly on and with rumors that Luke Worthington will be back out on track for the final rounds, the Extreme 2wd class is anyones game!
Jordan Russell currently leads the Performance 2wd class after his efforts at the Marsue Transport, Bencubbin 360. He will be looking to put the class title beyond doubt at the next 2 rounds to seal his maiden WAORC class championship
Ben Armstrong has proved that consistency is the key in the Production 4wd class. Fighting off some more fancied vehicles, Amstrong leads the class from Graeme Bentink who has won the last 2 rounds. However the class is still wide open as there are a total of 9 Production 4wds who are still in the hunt for the class series win!
Whilst Russ Cullen looks so have a solid advantage at the top of the Extreme 4wd points chart, he does not have the class title in the bag by any stretch of the imagination. Leigh Cooper, Owen Davies and Garry Povah will be breathing down the former Extreme 4wd AORC Champions neck at the final rounds
Neville Yeatman will be ruing the missed opportunity at Perenjori where he failed to score points. This has allowed Brad Close to take maximum points at the Kalgoorlie 400 and the class lead. If these 2 meet on track in the final rounds it will be game on as they look to try and take out their first ever Superlite WAORC class championship
