Isaac reaps racing rewards

Port Macquarie local Chris Isaac, 31, has taken second place in the hotly contested Raleigh RallyX Series at Raleigh International Raceway, 20 minutes southwest of Coffs Harbour.

After four rounds that began in March and a recent countback to confirm winners, Isaac and his trusty N15 1600 Pulsar finished with silver.

Isaac said he has not been racing competitively for long.

“I’ve been racing since March 2016 and my driving force was my father Phil and brother Ray who got me involved and helped me turn my old road car pulsar into a rally machine,” he said.

“I also race in Khanacross and autocross events for Central North Coast Sporting Car Club (Nabiac), Hastings Sporting Car Club (Rowlands Plains) and Coffs Harbour District Sporting Car Club.”

The Raleigh RallyX Series is the only confederation of Australian Motorsport (CAMS) approved Rallycross series in Australia since the mid 80's.

Isaac said there were other events in different states.
