Final results from the 2018 Marsue Transport Bencubbin 400

Posted on Updated on


The 2018 Carnarvon Motel WAORC Series has wrapped up Round 3 in Bencubbin over the WA Day Long weekend. 50 cars were registered at the start of the event and over the 2 days of Prologue, and Sections, the field was whittled down to 38 finishing Section 1 and 22 finishing Section 2. There were a few tough luck stories with 4 cars rolling over during the race, but the safety systems in place for the WAORC saw that everyone walked away without a scratch. The track was well set out, and the farmers of the Mt Marshall Shire provided a great race in the 9th year of it being held at Bencubbin.
