City of Wanneroo June
Racemeet Update!

The race gods were upon us this day with an absolutely glorious day at Barbagallo Raceway. Was chilly in the morning to unload all the gear and cars but smiles were a plenty as it was raceday.
City of Wanneroo Racemeet Street Car Association of WA 18th June 2017

 

Qualifying came up and we had a early exit from Grant who had a random fuel line issue. That was resolved but he missed out on qualy. Denver achieved a PB with a stonking 61.1 second lap. Paul was just behind with a 62.4 and Brad a smidge behind him with a 62.6. Craig also held a PB in his Wrx with a 63.7. New comer Nick in his Targa winning Evo popped up with a 65.1. Jason, Peter and Drew all qualified within 1.2 seconds of each other. The whole class qualifying within 5.5 seconds of each other!



Race 1 the top 3 guys had a great tussle and ended with Brad claiming 1st, Denver 2nd and Paul 3rd. Peter in his 300zx unfortunately had a issue which cut his race short.

Race 2 after lunch was a strange one. Brad was awarded a 5 second penalty for a jump start, Paul and Brad came close to each other and Paul dropped back into the pits to check his tyres, Grant buried himself in turn 6 sand trying to avoid a sports sedan competitor which resulted in a 3 lap safety car period which ended with a 1 lap sprint to the end. Brad ended up first over the line but dropped to 3rd with his penalty, Denver took out first and Craig popped up to second.

Race 3 saw a real mix grid as the usual front runners were placed towards the rear of the grid based upon cumulative points. Craig shot off to a early lead off the start but was reeled in by Denver, Brad and Paul by the end of the race. A really close race with the whole field relatively close at the end of the race. Denver, Paul and Brad took out 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively.



Congratulations to Denver who took out 1st for the meet, Brad 2nd and Craig 3rd with Paul just 2 points behind in 4th.
