May Race Update!

The Ernie Hastie Memorial Race Meet in Collie was held over the weekend of May 20 and 21st at Collie Motorplex, hosted by Southwest Motorsport. 

Being greeted with a forecast of thunderstorms and 100km/hr winds we were expecting the worst so the slippery and mostly wet conditions were actually better than anticipated! That's not to say it was easy, but hey, that's motorsport. Collie being a small track (till the planned upgrades) it has lots of interesting and challenging corners and even the straight is challenging with it's rolling bumps in the maximum acceleration zone.

With what was meant to be clearing rain in the morning that seemingly stopped not long before 7, the sky's did seem to be clearing up, all classes got to have a practice session on a track that was slowly drying out, and by the time we got to qualifying we had a completely dry track

Mid way through lunch and before race one, it rained which was the start of a pattern, luckily by the time we got out the track had mostly dried up, Race one saw Denver Parker in 1st, Paul Kluck in 2nd, Jason Hallam in 3rd and Peter Robertson in 4th.


Not long before race two it rained yet again, Paul  got a slightly better launch than Denver with less wheel spin and  for the next 10 laps Denver stayed glued to his bumper, Trying to pass in the last turn, he managed to get up along side him, but couldn't get any traction coming onto the main straight and had to give up the spot, Race two saw Paul finish in 1st, Denver in 2nd, Jason in 3rd and Peter in 4th


Yet again not long before race three it rained once more just to keep it constant, and with the temp dropping and the sun losing any warmth there wasn't any real dry parts of the track when we went out, Paul got ahead again and set about keeping Denver as honest as he could, but on about lap 5 coming onto the back straight he was right on his bumper and able to jump onto the inside line beside him, then it was a drag race and to see who blinked first, They both braked at the same time into the chicane, but Denver had less grip and felt the fronts lock up, pointing the wheels towards the first half of the chicane he was able to get the car turned in, release the brakes and using a bit of rally tactics hooked the inside wheels onto the curb into the chicane and then the same on the second half He reports it wasn't the cleanest of passes, but it most certainly got the job done, and from there he was able to build a one second or so gap in the last few laps and crossed the finish first. Race 3 ended in Denver 1st, Paul 2nd, Jason in 3rd and Peter in 4th.



Denver took out the meet adding some valuable points to the CAMs tally. This year is seeing some great duals going on and some movements in the leaderboard!!

Thankyou to Denver, Paul and Brad for their race updates and photos throughout the day.
