SSB1 Super Sprints Round 1

SSB1_GeoffNoble-1st overall for weekend(DarinMandy)

Round One of the B Series Queensland Super Sprints saw almost 140 cars entered, although we lost a couple with mechanical issues during Fridays Practice.

The first round was raced over the 3.0km circuit for 3 laps.

Saturday dawned fine and we look set to get the maximum number of runs in for the day until around 3pm when the heavens opened and we received 40mm in around 40 minutes at the track.  Whereas in town they got little or none.

There was so much rain that the racing was called off when we had streams flowing over the track and through the pits!  A lovely sunrise on Sunday morning greeted the competitors, the rain stayed away but Saturdays water made it fairly humid for the day.  The top three cars were fighting it out for the top spot which eventually went to Geoff Noble in his Lotus Elise, chasing hard and quickest in a couple of runs was Vikki Paxton in her modified F3 with Luke Brown third for the weekend driving his Condor Mk.1 racing car.

Here are the top 10 Results:

1 GEOFF NOBLE – 03:58.669
2 VIKKI PAXTON – 04:10.585
3 LUKE BROWN – 04:12.563
