Driver races to repair motor

ROUND three of the Central Queensland Rally Sprint Series heads to Yeppoon on Sunday with series co-leader Rockhampton's Peter Murphy racing the clock to make the event.

After suffering motor damage during a recent Byfield rally, Murphy is working overtime in the garage on his Toyota Celica.

Murphy and Childers driver Marlene Kruger, in her Datsun 1600, lead the six-round series.

Other local drivers set to line up at the weekend include Wayne Menzies, Marty Penfold and Mark Byrne, who will all be using the event as a lead-up to the Rydges Capricorn Rally which is also round four of the Queensland Rally Championships.

Anthony Tanzer, president of the Capricorn Coast Rally Sport Club, which is hosting rounds three and four of the CQ series, said a field of about 25 drivers was expected to compete.
