McBride & Stringer win at Australian Off-road Nats Rd2

McBride & Stringer win at Australian Buggy Nats Rd2

Over 190 drivers arrived to contest the second round of the Australian National Championship in Brisbane with two classes consisting of Buggy and Truggy were to be contested over the four days. Due to the change in the schedule the Buggy final was to be run first. The top 3 of McBride, Stringer and Laughton cleared out very quickly from the pack with the lead changing frequently in the first 10 minutes. A failed clutch bearing saw Laughton out at the 11-minute mark which left Aaron and Kyle to battle it out. McBride had a tire come loose which forced a tire change, which was done in record time by his dad Scott, and saw Kyle out only 12 seconds down. A thrilling race then developed between Stringer and McBride. At the end Aaron Stringer missed the last lap by 0.9 of a second giving him second for Buggy behind winner Kyle McBride with Mitch Mcallen coming in third.

Truggy was then run and once again it was clear the three main contenders of McBride, Stringer and Laughton were the ones to beat. However, this time it was Team McBride that had a DNF which allowed Aaron to lead from start to finish and take a much deserved win over Laughton and Andrew Foord.
