2016 Round 3

Round 3 of the WA saloon car championship kicked of with another big field of 27 under a gloomy sky but dry track.

Rodney Craig being the first casualty after a black cat crossed his path and knocked a ball joint out of place on the way to dummy grid for qualifying putting him out till race 2. The same critter may have been responsible for missing window net at MCE motorsport. A blown diff had Brock Ralf watching from the sidelines a lot earlier than he wanted.

Qualifying showed everyone the old fox Rick Gill still had it by showing the young guys a clean pair of heals to take pole with a 66-8 sec lap and going on to take both race 1 and 2, Gary Hills pushing him hard in both races. Craig Splatt led the early models away before Nic Hanlon took up where he left of in the last round to head all the EA/VN s home in both races. Andrew Martin taking home the stain your underwear award for a big spin and launch of the coffin at fast break, looked good for the crowd.

Race 3 saw reverse grids and rain just as the cars rolled onto the track. Some great wet weather driving saw Grant Johnson 3 wide at fast break and into the lead with only Chris Lillis getting close at the flag.

Rain man Mark Jones showing the early model guys and gals how to do it in the wet with Justin Chaffy a fair way back doing drift practice.

Nearly all cars coming off the track with little or no damage ,giving all the panel beaters in the west 4 weeks off.

See everyone in Collie next meeting, till then stay on the black stuff.

 

2016 Round 2 Nightmasters

NightMasters at Barbagallo Raceway had everyone looking forward to getting back to racing with a large field of 11 late models and 14 earlys.

Qualifying saw Chris Lillis and Andrew Martin take pole in the there classes. The late model races had 3 different winners, Grant Johnson race 1 and overall, the old fox Rick Gill taking out race 2 and Nathan Callahan finally remembering the way around to lead everyone hone in race 3. Vince Ciallalla having one of those night where he should have left the car at home and gone to the pub but he still made time to wire up a new starter button to car 67 after the keys got miss placed.

The VY of Tony James was a no show after engine failure on Friday practice and by all accounts it looks sweets. Nick Hanlon clean sweeping all 3 races in the early models, Craig Splatt 2nd with 2 2nd's and a 4th and Terry Da Sylva sneaking into 3rd after some close racing with Jim Linehan.

Birthday boy Jarred McCulloch ending his night with a big hit on the wall with lots of damage. Miss Daisy (Des Murphy) had to pass the marbles over to his team mate after running out of fuel in the last race and then looking for new pit crew. Well done to our 2 new drivers Kathy and Warren finishing all 3 races and looking forward to have a crack in daylight.
Till next round stay on the black stuff.
