There is no stopping Andrie Tan and his Radical SR8 with another win. His 57.19sec lap putting him well down the road from Marek Tomaszewski's R35 GTR (61.34sec) and Duncan Forrest's similar R35 GTR (62.54sec).
4th outright, and the quickest Clubbie, was Mark Lowing in his MNR Vortx. His 63.83sec lap also secured 1st place in class 5D. But a clutch problem put paid to beating his previous best and breaking through the elusive 63.0sec barrier. Campbell Wilson's 65.7sec time placed him third in class 5D and tenth outright. Mark and Campbell are heading to Phillip Island in July for their first run at the iconic circuit. It should be quite a sight to see the Vortx RT+'s stretch their legs on the Island's long straight.
Redback Motorsport customers Alan Swinton and Leigh Hemmings brought some added excitement to the day, fighting it out for the SVA lap record.
Leigh was first to claim the title. His 66.75sec dipping under the long standing 66.9 of Dave Mackie. Just when it looked secure Alan Swinton in his Arrow SEi clipped a couple of tenths of Leigh's freshly minted record, taking it to 66.50sec. Will we see a sub 66.0sec lap next time?
Wakefield Park Supersprint 5th June
It was back to Wakefield Park for the NSWRRC supersprint, and a chance to get away from the torrential rain in Sydney.
Outright honours went to Andrie Tan in his Radical SR8 with a 57.87sec lap, with the R35 Skylines of Duncan Forrest and Marek Tomaszewski taking out 2nd and 3rd, running comfortably in the mid 62's. Next was Mark Lowing in his MNR Vortx finishing fourth outright and first in class 5D with a 63.6 lap. His quickest this year.
Campbell Wilson's black and white Vortx (nicknamed "Pandamonium") came home 3rd in class and 8th outright with another personal best of 65.1sec. Taking nearly half a second of his previous best.
Competing in his first ever motorsport event was John Lowing, sharing son Mark's Vortx. His 68.8 lap time put him ahead of some experienced campaigners and only 1/100th's behind Dave Banbury in the supercharged Amaroo clubman.
With the closure of Oran Park the trek to Wakefield is becoming a routine event, and June 20th will see us return to the Goulburn track for round six of the CAMS NSW Supersprint Championship.
