C series Super Sprints successful round 1 with equal Championship points!

March 2018

On the 3rd and 4th of March, the Warwick District Sporting Car Club hosted the first round of the C series Super Sprints.

The C series saw a diverse range of vehicles competing over the weekend on the 3km “K” circuit. The vehicles ranged from a 1935 Indy car to sports cars, daily drivers driven to the track to dedicated racing cars, modern all wheel drives to good old Aussie Muscle cars. With something to please all types of interest, the spectators were not left disappointed.

There were many new faces competing in the C series. Some, while new to Morgan Park, are by no means new to the sport of motor racing with many drivers in the past competing at hill climbs, sprints and rallies. There were also other drivers, including juniors, competing for their first time in sprint events. All had a great time and are looking forward to the next round.

Even though a threatening storm rolled on over on the Saturday afternoon, the track was dry and all seven runs for the weekend were completed with only a few minor incidents. Many competitors had also lowered their personal best lap times.

Current first place for the “C” series championship points stands at a tie with Brad Stehr and Nic Andrews both holding 42 points with Beau Hatton at 39 points.

Each of the A,B and C Super Sprint Series have now completed the first round. While champion points for each series are currently close, there are 3 more rounds per series left which should make for some great competition.

The next of the Sprint Series is the “A” series round 2 and will be on the 7th & 8th April. For more information and for what events are coming up, visit www.morganparkraceway.com.au

Dry weather for B series Round 1

Saturday 24th of February was the start of the first round of the Warwick District Sporti ng Car Club’s B series Super Sprints Run on the 3 km “K” circuit.

After a wet day during Friday’s practice the weather was not looking ideal for the weekend. To everyone’s delight the rain held back and 7 runs were completed for the weekend. Unfortunately a few competitors out of the 105 entered over the weekend had to retire with various mechanical issues.

Warwick District Sporting Car Club like to encourage juniors and welcome them into the sport. There were three juniors competing on the weekend, Tom Brelsford , Alexandra Redhead, and Alyssa Lepp.  While Tom has competed in last years Super Sprint Series, it was the very first time for Alexandra and Alyssa who both shared a Susuki Swift for the weekend. Both girls drove very well and are surely now hooked on the sport.

To prove that age is no barrier, Tim Deacon aged 80ish , competed over the weekend and completed all seven runs and thoroughly enjoyed the event.

The B series also saw a large number of Lotus drivers , all duelling it out for top position. Lotus Driver Geoff Noble came out on top as well as leading the B series Championship. Following Geoff in second place in the Championship points is Jason Wishart, then Nick Ashwin.

The next Super sprint round will be round 1 of the “C” series on the 3rd and 4th of March. Spectator entries are free and all are welcome to watch. The Pit Exit Café will also be providing great food and lovely coffee.
