Stean and Murphy shine in valleys rally

ALBURY-Wodonga and Districts Car Club member and well-known local real estate agent Geoff Stean and his new navigator William Murphy, of Melbourne, finished ninth outright in last weekend’s The 3 Valleys Rally held at Traralgon.

Competing in Stean’s Mitsubishi FTO, the duo finished the invitation-only three-day event with 1538 points, just 75 points in arrears of the winning Audi R8 of Kevin Ryan and Graeme Vaux.

It was the first time in the navigator’s seat for ex-Albury boy Murphy who racked up 324 points for 13th in the navigators’ outright pointscore.
