Father and daughter team Hayden and Hannah Bentley have capitalised on their consistent lap times to take outright honours at the Can-Am Loveday 400, the single round of the BFGoodrich Motorsport Australia Off Road Cup – Central held this weekend at Loveday 4X4 Adventure Park.

Greg Gartner and Jamie Jennings topped the prologue time sheets, only to surrender their lead to Wes and Rob Cowie in Saturday’s section 2 when tailshaft failure saw the awesome Ford 150 #410 trophy truck under recovery tow.

The Cowie brothers reigned over the ensuing pack and were on target for the outright victory until a devastating blow for the MoverYourself Team; drive shaft failure on lap 10, the last lap for the weekend sidelined the #92 Jimco and handing the victory to the chasing Team Bentley.

Bentley, who himself had fuel pressure issues in the last section, clocked in his slowest lap times of the weekend and pitted between laps 9 and 10, ultimately finished the 400km event with a 5m49.2seconds lead over second placed Chris Pickert. Pickert, with a host of navigators sharing the duties in the #577 Triton; Bryan and Jackson Brown, Geoff Pickert and Andrew Maxwell had a flawless run pulled an impressive 7m31.9seconds over son and father team Tyson and Chris Proud, the #53 Proud Motorsport Evotech rounding out the Can-Am Loveday 400 podium.

Rich Andrews #173 with daughters Lauren and Jamie navigating slotted into fourth ahead of David Adams #1074 in fifth place. Sam Bentley and Ben Chivell in Sam’s second only drive of the newly landed #1018 Racer Engineering Sportslite secured sixth place with Michael Shipton and Paul Chorlton #858 in seventh. Gavin Chant and Ian Longford #1035 were one of the three teams entered at both the Kalgoorlie Western Cup last weekend and the Central Cup this weekend, and after putting it on its roof in Western Australia, took a more conservative approach to bring the Southern Cross Mark 4 home in eighth place.

Mark Taylor and Robbie Ward #256 were the last team to complete full race distance and took out ninth place and first in class for their efforts. Unfortunately for Simon and Kyle Tucker, who were leading Super 1650 class in the #220 Ratbagz Mark 1 until the last section when overheating issues saw them back in the pits and ending their weekend of racing.

Worthy of a mention is the young second generation racers at Loveday this weekend. 15 year old twins Joel #6126 and Robbie #6138 Gadaleta, both racing Can-Am Maverick X3s this weekend, weren’t old enough to compete in the 10 laps BFGoodrich Motorsport Australia Off Road Cup – Central but were able to run the 8 lap multi-club component of the event, taking out second and third in class and 15th and 16th outright for the event.

Brothers Ben and Max Gartner, sons of legendary Greg Gartner, literally drove the wheels off the #6117 Can-Am Maverick in their first run of the newly homed machine. The young Gartner’s finishing the weekend one lap down and in 11th place with Dad Greg 2 laps down and in 12th place.

All in all it was a great weekend of off road racing at the Can-Am Loveday 400. Congratulations to all the winners and better luck next year for rest of the field.
