Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Crossing the tasman to New Zealand for our 5th Round of the Summer Series in the minitures. This League has been mixed with all sorts of different winners and racing battles throughout. Pukekohe Park was no different as the racing was tight and furious. This track allowed up to 5 cars to challenge for the corners. Let’s see how they went

Qualifying:
New face - Daniel Jaslowski, represents South Australia. Shane jumped out of the cockpit for a quick study of his opponent’s lines. Jason got in front early and stayed in front for pole. Pat set his quick time late to share the front row.

Race #1:
Jason led into turn one, with Jeremy claiming the inside for the second spot. Scott spun and Jamie fell back too. Iain spotted found an opportunity to take third spot but Chris also had his eyes on it. Chris snuck on by on the final lap. Jason banked the big points for the first race.

Race #2:
Daniel learnt the harsh reality of cold tyres – dropped back from first to last. Jamie held the field back throughout the opening laps.  Scott tipped his Aussie Racer onto two wheels, rolling in front of his rivals. Jamie showcased a stellar defense against Shane for a while. As soon as Shane got past, Jason slipped by too and took the race win again.

Race #3:
Jamie once again proved lethal off the start. Chris on the other hand received a stop-go penalty. Jeremy flew through the pack with evident strength through sector one, sat third behind Iain and Shane. Shane made a move to the outside of the bus-stop, gets ahead and then lost traction on power through the left switch-back. Iain jumped to the left, Jeremy to the right – across the grass, sideways and claimed first place. He holds for the lap but then grabbed too much kerb on the hairpin to rollover! Jason challenging Shane on the final lap for the lead, thought he had just finished and comically threw his car into the barriers prematurely by thinking he had crossed the finish line a lap early handing a gift for Shane who rolled on for the win.

Race #4:
Advantage Chris through the first turn. Jeremy jumped to fourth very early. Sure enough, he led soon after. Pat jumped the start and was served with a penalty. This put him way down the pack. Daniel Jaslowski also had a disastrous first lap dropping to 8th from pole. Enda was looking good in P2 early but dropped back to P7 swapping position with Iain McIntosh. Scott and Shane was solid up the front chasing Jeremy in the lead. Both only looking in the mirrors to see where Brooksy was, waiting for him to pounce at any minute. A lengthy 18 lap race gave him plenty of opportunity to work his way back up to the front. Sure enough…. There he was and there he went. Passing Shane on Lap12 and Scott on Lap 16. Jeremy was too consistent and deservedly took the win.

Race #5:
Points accumulated thus far featured Jeremy needing the win over Jason to take the night’s honours. Jeremy took the first corner and lap, but Jason countered the following lap. Jeremy just needed to make one more place but now in 3rd thanks to Chris he was seeing that win disappear. Chris was punching in the fast laps but had some bad luck throughout the night. Maybe he was missing his mate Allan Marks ?? He had a better result this time with a solid 3rd place. Pat also had a bad run tonight but finished off the night with a 2nd place which has kept his spirits up. The winner for the race and the round is Jason Brooks.
