MOTOR SPORT: Round two of the SSC Stadium Short Course Offroad Racing Series produced some high-quality racing at the Benaraby Motorsport Complex.

So tight was the racing that the top three had to be split up on countback of their lap times.

Dan McKenzie was the overall winner with Brett Comiskey and Steve Reibel taking out the minor placings.

"The racing was very close and with consistent lap times," event organiser Brent Taylor said.

"Some of the lap times were within three hundredth of a second of each other.

"It was the best round we have had so far."

There were no incidents except for two rollovers in one race in the PRO 4WD category and Taylor said no-one was hurt.

Brayden Mifsud took out the Junior Side-By-Side class and Dan Pickles topped the list who raced in the Performance 4WD class.

McKenzie also took out the Performance Side-By-Side category.

"It was a really good day with a reasonable amount of spectators, but would have liked to have more," Taylor said.

Comiskey won the PRO Side-By-Side division and the Super Lite Buggy winner was Reibel.

Ben Hoare was the PRO 2-Wheel Drive winner.

Taylor does not know as to why the crowd numbers were down.

"We have tried everything to get the crowd numbers up and we're all at a bit of a loss," he said.

Taylor said the next and final round on October 7 will determine the winners.
