THE Weekend Warriors had their chance to battle it out on Southern 80 Sunday, with Dominator taking out the honours.
The first time the category had been staged at the Southern 80, Dominator, driven by Jason Duncan, cruised home by more than two minutes from Allegro in second place.
His seventh time at the Echuca event, the win was the first victory for skier James Melmoth and his team.
‘‘We might be weekend warriors, but we love turning up and having some fun,’’ Melmoth said.
He said while the conditions were tough, the Southern 80 was always a great experience.
‘‘It was pretty tough and there was a lot of wind out there, and we did our best to put in a good run,’’ he said.
‘‘It was our first time running that class, and the first time we’ve ever had a win here, so it’s awesome.
