The round saw action on Saturday over stages put together near Sawyers Arms Road and on Sunday on private land in Cust (no night stages).
There were a total of 15 stages for the Open & Outlaw classes and 14 for Clubman and Ironman.
All Saturday’s seven stages were man-made with logs laid, holes dug and a bit of a speed section marked out. Three of the stages were marked out in a side-by-side format with the first two a short straight run then turn around and return to the finish.
Saturday held up well but by 5.00pm news came through that Sunday’s venue at Cust was getting a light dusting of snow.
Despite this, the sun was shining (though it was still cold) as the 18 entries gathered there at 9:00am on Sunday.
This time there were eight stages (all on natural terrain this time with no man-made holes or logs laid out) for Outlaw and Open and seven for Club and Ironman. Two stages featured runs up through the pines and to get to the top most had to winch up.
Congratulations to all the winners and a special congratulations to Kyran Austin (a marshall) who won the draw for the "Superwinch Winch" donated by Superwinch.
