Geraghty gears up for title tilt

16:00, Feb 04 2013

Taranaki driver Dave Geraghty picked up his second successive NZGT round win at Hampton Downs Motorsport Park, near Hamilton, at the weekend.

Geraghty competed against 26 other drivers in the three qualifying races in hot conditions, which caused the track to become more slippery as the programme progressed. However, the conditions suited Geraghty's 4WD Mitsubishi Evo.

He qualified ninth fastest on Saturday morning. He finished third in race one, won race two on Sunday and finished second in race three to end the weekend 24 points clear of his nearest rival.

Geraghty also won the previous round at Taupo Motorsport Park.

Despite missing an earlier round, he sits fifth overall on the competition ladder. There are two rounds left this summer, at Manfeild and Taupo.
