After a dismal 1986 season, the Mobil Holden Dealer Team celebrated a double victory in the streets of Wellington, surviving an action-packed weekend with many damaged cars. Third were O’Brien and McIntyre with BMW’s 635, and fourth came after some time-consuming dramas Soper and Crichton in an ex-Eggenberger Sierra TI.
