May Race Update!

The Widespan Sheds Autumn Classic has been raced and won. It was a beautiful Autumn day for racing. Threat of rain forecast but nothing ever eventuated for us at Barbagallo Raceway.

Apart from a majority of the Street Cars drivers saying the track was a bit greasy, qualifying went really well. With 20 cars in a combined grid, space was at a premium though. Andrew Stevens was position 1 with a 61.05, Paul Kluck and Denver Parker cane in 2nd and 3rd with only 0.04 seconds separating them.


Race 1 was a bit of a mix up with a few irregular occurrences. Denver had a suspension failure which made him have to DNF to start repairs. Andrew Stevens had a off and lost his iconic front bumper at turn 7 but still managed to finish. Grant was having over boosting issues which really hamstrung him during the race. Paul and Brad had a hard fought battle in their Nissans for first and second whilst Mark and Craig had a good battle for third and forth with Andrew Mclay nearly pipping Craig at the line on the final lap.

Race 2 saw things continue to happen that don't normally happen. Andrew had another moment at turn 1 but fought back to come second overall. Denver popped a cooler hose and limped around. Mark blew fifth gear in his car. Grant was still missing bad so called it a day. Paul stormed home to win race 2, with Brad coming in third. Andrew Mclay, Drew, Craig and Jason all had a good battle for the lower positions. Racing was close which was great to see.


Race 3 took place as the final race of the day. Brad won the last race in front of Paul with Denver storming from rear of the grid to grab third. Mark came in fourth with no fifth gear. Andrew Mclay was next with a limping Andrew Stevens behind with fuel issues. Drew was next up. Craig was having throttle issues all day and Jason unfortunately came off at turn 7 on the last lap.

Paul in his Skyline won the event, Brad came in second in his S15 with Mark Conacher taking third in his Datsun 1600. Was a great event overall. The next event is the Ernie Hastie Collie meet held by Motoring South West on Sunday 21st May.
