2014 Round 1 Race Report

Congratulations to Round 1 winners:
Outright: Tim Miller (nsw #82)
Under 2 Litre: Wade Reynolds (sa #74)
Late Model: Phillip Andrawos (sa #32)

The 22nd of March saw the return of racing to South Australia at Mallala with the first round of the South Australian State Racing Series after a false start due to extreme heat back in February. IP turned out a field of 14 cars, with some new & some returning faces. Tim Miller made the trek over from Sydney in the ex Tony Wallis Mazda 808, new this year was the Nissan 200SX of George Diamond, the Peugeot 206 GTi of Brett Watters, the RX-7 of Dean Lindstrom & the Mazda 808 of Ben Maddern. With some near on Perfect weather it was going to be a good day for racing.

Qualifying saw some good times and at the end of the session it was Tim Miller that headed the time sheets with an impressive 1:15.5645 for his first session at the track. Heading the under 2L field was Wade Reynolds in his Toyota Sprinter with a 1:20.1032.

Race one saw Tim Miller lead the pack into turn one, closely followed by Michael Naguib, Kym Hockley and Scott Cook, by the time they headed through the southern hairpin (turn 3) and onto the back straight Tim in the 808 had pulled out a reasonable gap, but a mistake into the Northern Hairpin allowed Michael Naguib to take the lead. Scott Cook managed to find his way past Kym Hockley and climb to second which he held till the end of the race and Tim Miller fought back through the field to third place by race end. Leading the Late Model brigade was Philip Andrawos in his BMW325 and in 4th overall with Wade Reynolds the leading under 2L in 6th place and also managing to set a new PB of 1:19.7341. Rounding out the field was George Diamond, Ian Statham, Brett Watters, Max Clark & Dean Lindstrom.

Race 2 saw Michael Naguib on the pole, with Scott Cook alongside him. Scott beats Michael into turn 1 to take lead with Michael in 2nd, Tim Miller 3rd and Kym Hockley 4th. Phillip Andrawos was the first late model in 5th place and Wade Reynolds the first of the under 2 litres in 6th and Ian Statham in the Magna in 7th. Heading into Southern Ian Statham has issues and retires from the race. Michael gets Scott into Northern to take the lead and Tim then gets Scott into the esses to take 2nd. Wade makes a mistake into turn 1 allowing George Diamond to make the pass into Southern taking 6th. Kym Hockley has a problem on the back straight on lap 2 and pulls off from 4th place. Dean Lindstrom in the Mazda rx7 retires on lap 2 as did Ian Eldridge in the Torana. Kym Hockley got the Centura going again but finishes a lap down. Very close racing ensued between George in the 200SX turbo and Wade in the U2L sprinter, on the last lap Wade managed to get inside George into the esses and take 5th place outright and 1st U2L while Tim got past Michael to take the win with Scott in 3rd and Philip the first LM in 4th.

Race 3 saw Tim Miller on pole with Michael Naguib alongside. Michael passes Tim into Southern Hairpin to take the lead while Kym Hockley and Ian Eldridge are fighting their way through the field after starting from the back. By the end of the 2nd lap Kym and Ian were 5th and 6th respectively and on lap three Ian makes the pass on Kym through the kink to take 5th while Tim retakes the lead from Michael into Northern Hairpin. On lap 4 Ian and Kym pass Phil into the Southern Hairpin to take 4th and 5th respectively, leaving Phil as the leading LM in 6th followed by Wade in the leading under 2L in 7th. Scott makes a pass on Michael for 2nd after Michael runs wide at the Northern Hairpin and the finishing order is Tim 1st, Scott 2nd, Michael 3rd with Phil as 1st placed LM in 6th and Wade only 0.6 secs back as 1st placed under 2L in 7th. There was also very close racing at the other end of the field between Dean, Brett and Max with only 2 seconds separating the three of them over the line.

Our attention now turns to Round 2 on the 31 May – 1June 2014, the South Australian Improved Production State Title and the Michael Rooke Memorial Race. With a large field expected and the hope of some big name interstaters this will certainly be a round of Improved Production racing not too miss. Keep an eye on the website for more news on round 2 to follow.

Bathurst 2012

Well done to the SA boys Mark Ruta & Chris Brown at Bathurst this week end. Looks as they both can bring their cars home in one piece after what looked like some good racing. Well done also to Ray Hislop in lowering the lap record by a substantial amount.
