Duncan Stephens used his Dutton Melos to finish second overall despite a couple of car problems on a day where a heavy dew on long grass made for extremely slippery conditions. Rupert North slowly opened out a nine point advantage on site specialist Simon Harris' Golf, using the Mini size to his advantage.
