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.
