AUSFACTOR - rFactor HEAT # 2

Race To Reality rFactor Heat 2 at Amaroo Raceway has been run and won on Sunday night with driver Rocky Calabrese taking an easy win and securing his spot in the rFactor on-line final. 
Another small but good field entered the event and early practice was showing some close times by 3 of the drivers. We had two drivers competing tonight live from the Racecentre in Sydney and they were on the pace. 

Qualifying Order 
1. Rocky Calabrese
2. David Lord
3. Koil
4. Che Romans
5. Dayne Powell 

As the race began, Rocky got a great start and turned up Bitchupuave hill unopposed in the lead of the race. David Lord was slow away and Koil challenged him on the inside line for the Dunlop Loop. The opening couple of laps saw Rocky setting blistering lap times while David was being held up early by Koil, a good duel developed and David eventually got past Koil heading into lap 4 however Rocky was 6 seconds up the road. Further back Dayne had a early off into the grass but managed to quickly regather and Che was in a steady 4th position. 

With Rocky out front, David Lord began to settle into 2nd position and it looked like he could work on catching Rocky when disaster stuck. It appeared David over steered in the fast downhill section after Dunlop Loop, he over corrected the slide and ended up in the grass and into the fence. Damage was severe on the car and he had lost a wheel. This ended David's race which was a shame for the event as David looked like he could have taken it to Rocky. 

The remaining laps of the race was a lesson in fast consistent laps with Rocky going on to lap the entire field in his domination of the event. Rocky won the race from Koil and Che Romans with Dayne and David both none finishers.
