Aussie Racing Cars – The Girls vs the Boys!
It’s been almost two months since the Aussie Racing Cars have been on track, round one at the Clipsal 500 was a resounding success for the biggest Australian racing class, a bumper field put on a great show for the huge Adelaide crowd.
The Aussie Racing Cars were the only class that could boast starting and finishing with a full contingent of entries, every other class at the event lost a competitor or two! Last years champion Brendon Pingel reigned supreme again, although the likes of Craig Woods and Trent Young didn’t make it easy for him, add to the mix a fleet of rookies plus returning champion Klye Clews, the later taking a little longer to settle into the car than maybe expected. This weekend will give him the opportunity to jump forward in the points, maybe!
Round two is at Phillips Island, traditionally this round has been the penultimate round for the V8Supercars, the shift to an April date has the obvious change of running in much cooler conditions, although it is “the island” and it’s often seen to have all four seasons in one day, even in an hour!!
The Aussie Racing Cars are proud to be able to say we have 4 female racers entered for this round and may well be the first one make series to do so. Along with long time pocket rocker driver Ruth Bowler we have Emma Clark who had a great weekend at the Clipsal event, young Madi Dunston and Charlotte Poynting join the class field.
Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit is a fantastic track for the Aussie Racing Cars it’s fast so you can stretch your legs but wide too, so there will be plenty of pack racing 3 and 4 wide. Once again Pingel will have his work cut out with 33 other drivers looking to get past him.
