Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Qualify:

Not a lot to mention. The guys spent most of the time selecting what vehicle to drive as Sebring offers pro's and con's which evens out the playing field for the different manufactures. It was Allan Marks who stole the 5 min shoot out putting the Ginetta on Pole. Nathan Tregarthen will fill the front row. Shane Gilfeather will start from 3rd.

Race :

While Allan was on Pole he had some trouble getting the Ginetta off the line. He was also clipped by Andrea Montermini which saw Tim Hamilton and Nathan Tregarthen take full advantage moving up the front. Shane Gilfeather was also caught napping as his launch was delayed. That gave Michael Donnellan a bit of a scare as he had nowhere to go. Tim overshot the sharp right hander at Turn 10 giving Tregarthen the lead. Allan Managed to get himself back up the front to put pressure on, That was until he cooked it coming out of Turn 7 falling back to P6. Then he and Gilfeather where battling for the next few laps. Allan dove hard under brakes and over shot Turn 10 drifting into the path of Gilfeather send him in a spin. Meanwhile Hamilton has regained the lead.

Michael Donnellan in the Bentley and Theo Kondouris in the SupaBarn Porsche are keeping each company as Hamilton makes another mistake into T10 religuashing the lead to Tregarthen. That was short lived as Allan Marks started to find his groove and take the lead and run away. It was looking like a 2 stop race but the top runners decided to stretch it out to Lap 23 which was past the half way point. While in the lead Allan Marks decides to pit but the pit crew started to repair the damage costing him 15 seconds and possibly the win. He exits the pits in P3. Tregarthen pits a lap later to rejoin in P2. This left Hamilton out front for the remainder of the race while Tregarthen, Gilfeather and Marks stayed together for P2, 3 & 4. Gilfeather and Marks swapping turns gave Tregarthen some breathing space. Marks came undone on T3 and lost contact with the fight for the top 3 as the race finished with Hamilton taking his 2nd Checkered in a row. Tregarthen finishing in P2 and Gilfeather close behind in P3. Marks in P4 and Donnellan in P5.
