In a masterful display of dominance and consistency throughout the year, Nathan Grover last weekend won the Oakleigh Club’s Class Champion for the 2013 year in Sportsman Restricted Light. Nathan’s dominance of the Class was such that, in spite of missing two events due to illness, he managed to walk away with the top prize.
Nathan’s great effort behind the wheel of his CRG chassis was very much complimented by his father, Craig Grover with his expert input in chassis set-up and engine tuning.
We extend our sincere congratulations to both Craig and Nathan Grover on a fine effort throughout this year.
