RESULTS - Monday Night Mixed League 2014 - Legends Cars @ Kyalami GP South Africa

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Night has fallen with Race 1 and Ross Rizzo, Jason Brooks and Francarlo Rizzo showed their early pace seperating themselves from the rest of the field.The Rookies Harry and Robert getting into some early trouble crashing on the tricky turns. On Lap 3 Jeremy Pernesz runs wide into the dirt on T4 and rejoins the track only to collect Shane Gilfeather throwing him into the wall forcing his early retirement. The top 3 continuing on their battle until Francarlo got caught up with a backmarker costing him some good points. Ian McIntosh capitalises to take home 3rd behind Ross Rizzo in 2nd and Brooks home in 1st.


The 2nd race and it was reversing the results of race 1's results which was no match for Ross as he makes his way through to the front early only to spin and lose time. Brooks and McIntosh charge on. Francarlo heated from the first race also charges to the front to take the honours ahead of brooks and Ross. Hamilton has been improving and his pace is getting better every race.


Race 3 and its Brooksy Francarlo and Ross off to a flyer. Ross is off especially quick as he jumped the start and was disqualified for the race. A lot of slipping and sliding with the tricky car and the off cambered corners of Kyalami didn't help either. It has made for some great entertainment as the position changes have been plenty tonight. Brooks takes the win ahead of Francarlo and an ever improving Tim Hamilton. Penesz home in 4th.


Race 4 id here and we have had 3 winners from 3 races. Hamilton clawing his way to the top knowing that this race should be his. The green flag dropped and it was the return of the "Shane Train" Gilfeather gets off to an awesome start holding off 4 other top drivers. he is just holding his line while the others are all battling for 2nd. This is giving Gilfeather some breathing space for a couple of laps as the colours in his rear vision mirrors keeps changing. A grin ear to ear as he's watching the action go on behing him. unfortunately he runs wide and allows Francarlo through closely followed by Ross,Brooks and Hamilton. The top 4 battle continues until Ross gets caught up with another back marker losing 2 positions. Francarlo takes his 2nd win of the night closely followed by Hamilton then Brooksy. The "Shane Train" chugs home in 4th.


The Final race of the night and it between Brooks and Francarlo as they are seperated by 2 points and over 20 points over Ross in 3rd. They get off the line and the "Shane Train" gets derailed as he gets wedged in all the weaving. Lucky to make it across the start finish line he retired with 3 tyres left. Up the front and its 4 wide going down the first few left hand sweepers. A slight touch and Francarlo runs wide into the sand trap. This leaves Brooks,Ross,Hamilton and McIntosh up the front to charge on for the lead. Ross and Brooks start to stretch their advantage and make it a 2 way race for the lead. Further back and its absolute carnage. Pernesz smashes into the wall losing his front left wheel. As he rolls into the pits the crew refuse to replace it so he is forced to race the last 6 laps on his tri-cycle. Fortunately its the least loaded wheel around this ant-clockwise circuit. Ian McIntosh and Hamilton are in a tight battle for p3. Francarlo charging his way back through the field. The race up front is epic as Brooks and Ross are showing just how talented they are. They are also showing a lot of respect for one another swapping turns. The last couple of laps and the lead has changed over 5 times. If one dives under brakes the other will get them on the switch back. It's come down to the 3rd last corner and Brooks has got up under Ross but on the exit Ross has got the launch and the right line to gain back the lead into the last chicane. Brooks however gets a good run and starts to make the move on the inside. Ross see's him and protects the line by moving over into the last turn. Its's Ross ahead but Brooks has the better run out of the corner. It's do or die for Brooks so he drops it in 1st but gave it too much JANDAL spinning off Ross's back bumper. Ross Rizzo takes the win ahead of Brooks who takes the overall win ahead of Francarlo in 3rd.
