RESULTS: Monday Night Summer Series League 2015 - Round 7 @ Gold Coast 600

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Aussie Racing Cars have often provided spectators some spectacular carnage at the Gold Coast Street Circuit in the past, and it would've been safe to assume the same would occur in the sim world. A 20-minute qualifying session acted as extra practice for the drivers to feel comfortable on the track. Allan Marks kept the drama alive by claiming pole position in the final moments of the session. New to Summer Series was Reece Major and Duran Nikora, the latter debuted on the front row.

Races:

The field headed to turn one 3 wide and Allan beat-out Jeremy in the game of chicken. Jeremy had impressive pace but his little red ute appeared to get mighty loose over the beach side kerbs resulting in some mighty slams against the walls. Allan remained unchallenged for the first win.

Reece, as the beneficiary of the reverse grid for race two, crept forward to receive a penalty which sent him to the back. The field remained in rather close packs but in a constantly shuffled order. Chris picked up victory in races two and three.

Race four was led by Shane and Jamie during the opening half. Allan was charging hard against a fellow competitor and caught the leading duo a bit quicker than expected. A four car-incident took Shane and Jamie out of contention at the hairpin. Iain and Scott found themselves in prime position for the race win. Scott took the win and reduced the points spread to 4 points between 4 drivers.

Jeremy needed only 3 points in the final race to catch Allan in the night’s points, so he snatched the lead into turn one. The gap remained at a constant 2 second gap, neither driver making mistakes. The top two positions held giving Jeremy the overall victory through equal points and a countback. With only one Summer Series round to go, Jeremy is now in striking distance of championship leader, Jason Brooks.
