July Race Update!

Torque Trophy.

The meeting that means so much to us all at Street Cars, the meeting that has ended in court rulings and is a true test of your cars and drivers endurance. The heavens opened up the day before and had passed us and ended in a incredible day. A field of 10 cars for Street Cars entered. A mix of cars including a R32, a R33, a S15, a S13, a 1600T, a 180sx, a 300z, a WRX, a EVO and a BMW e30. Qualifying was great even with a greasy and wet track.


Nearly all drivers hit a PB in qualy with a early exit from Robbo in the 300z with a engine issue. Brad qualified 1st with a 61.3, Denver next with a 61.7 and Craig pipped Paul by 0.2 of second for 3rd.


Race one was a close affair to start with Craig spinning on turn 4 on lap 1. Denver trying to chase down Brad with Paul (with a misfire issue) and Mark fighting it out as well. Craig clawed his way back but Nick had a spin in his Evo which made him drop back. Brad 1st, Denver 2nd and Mark 3rd.

Race two for torque trophy is reverse grid for first 10 cars. Considering that's all we had then it was full reverse grid. Craig had a blinder off the start and Mark decided to make the little Datsun 1600 the widest car ever built. He held up most of the pack for a long while with Brad from the rear of the grid and Denver getting past. They both eventually passed Craig to finish 1st and 2nd respectively with Craig finishing 3rd.

Race three is a reverse grid based upon cumulative points. This makes sure it is still anyone's trophy. Brad was all back of the bus again, Denver and Mark in front of him, Craig and Paul next, Drew and Nick second from front row and Kelvin up front with Grant missing with fuel issues. 15 laps the race goes for and really tests everyone. Nick and Craig took off to the front with AWD launches but were quickly reeled in by Brad, Denver, Paul and Mark. Was a great battle up front with Denver keeping Brad honest but a differential failure meant he had to retire from the race!


The results were in. Brad had a clean sweep and finally got his name on the Torque Trophy, with Mark Conacher 2nd and Paul Kluck 3rd. Kelvin Sharp in his BMW e30 came first in under 2.0litre category. It was a fantastic day with the family vibe definitely in full effect with all drivers reporting it being one of the most fun days at the track in a long time. There is now a 3 month break until the next championship round, so lots of time to get it all the cars sorted for the final round. The championship is still anyones!!!!
