Cold snap for B Sprints Round 3

Saturday the 16th of June was the start of the Warwick District Sporting Car Club’s Super Sprints round 3 of the B series. The Sprints where conducted on the 2.1 km E Circuit. 7 runs were completed with each run consisting of 4 laps.

A cold wind blew on Sunday but did not blow as  fast as Geoff Noble in his lotus who set an overall run time of 4:17.527 keeping him well in front on the championship table.

Not to be out done by the A series, the B series also had a couple of fires and the occasional vehicle recovery. Russell Schloss finally overcame the gremlins in his Production Sports series Porsche only to become the target of a mob of kangaroos causing him to stop to let them all go around him. No kangaroos were injured but Russell’s times took a hit.

There were a good variety of cars competing on the weekend as well as a large number of Lotus sports cars. The Members of the Alfa Club had fun throughout the event and positioned themselves for their last run in a way that saw all cars in the group cross the finish line close together. It was once again great to see the juniors showing a large improvement with their confidence on the track as well as their lap times. WDSCC encourage juniors to these events and consider them a valuable asset to the future of motorsport.

As always, a big thank you to all the officials who volunteered their time to help run the event. Volunteers are always welcomed and give you a great chance to get amongst the action.

The C series is next in line and will run their third round on the 30th June and 1st July. Spectator entry for all the super sprints is free of charge and are a fantastic action packed weekend with a large variety of different cars competing .For more information and for what events are coming up, visit www.morganparkraceway.com.au
