"Presto" received an early morning wake up call, the slippery track and cold slicks contributing to a low speed spin on the out lap. Despite the lack of grip "Presto" went on to set fastest time of the day with a 1:41.57, 3.6 sec ahead of second place getter John Bugh's  turbo PRB Clubman at 1:45.23 and Neville Gregory's Mazda Rx7 on 1:45.25.
