Saturday 12th of May saw the beginning the Warwick District Sporting Car Club’s Super Sprints round 2 of the B series. A cold wind blew on the Saturday bringing out jumpers and beanies and giving a taste of some winter weather. The cooler conditions also lowered the temperature of the track catching a few competitors out causing a few spins and some not so ideal racing lines. The Sprints where conducted on the 1.5 km D Circuit. The D circuit is a challenging track where the competitors turn right after passing under the bridge and are kept busy through the flip flops before turning back on to the straight.
Once again the juniors were back and having a good go. Both girls, Alexandra Redhead and Alyssa Lepp, who shared the drive in a Suzuki, improved with each run and lowered their Personal best lap times. Also amongst the Juniors was Tom Brelsford diving his Mk 1 Escort. Tom was in the same group as his father and the pair took turns at chasing and being chased while trying to outdo each other.
The Mothers were not forgotten for Mother’s day on Sunday with a lovely morning tea held on in the Café area.
Overall there were very little incidents with 7 runs completed throughout the day with each run consisting of 4 laps.
The C series will run their second round on the 26th and 27th May. This will conclude the second rounds for all A,B and C Sprint series with round 3 of the A series starting on the 2nd June.
