Round Three Barbagello Perth Weekend Wrap

THE THIRD round of the seven round 2017 series saw the teams make the longest haul by road, well for the truck drivers that is, the road trip is at least two to three days from the main centres, across the Nullabor into Perth. It's been a couple of years since the pocket rockets have had a hit out on the Western Australian circuit and this was the second time only they have visited.  Once again like the previous round more than half the field had not run on the Perth circuit, but it didn’t take them long to get the feel for it. Barbagello Raceway is characteristically a slippery track, the run offs are deep sand traps and often this is dragged onto the…

Round Two Symmons Plains Tasmania Weekend Wrap

The second round of the 2017 Aussie Racing Cars Championship held last weekend at Symmons Plains would have to be the wettest race car event the series has ever been to in its almost 20 year history.  Friday lulled the competitors into thinking a fine race meeting was on the cards with clear skies and 25C temps.  Alas it wasn’t to continue. Friday saw the pocket rockets have two practice sessions, this is a great time for the new teams to get a real feel for the short but flowing track, half of the drivers had never raced at this venue.  The hot weather made for great times and allowed the teams to assess the new Kumho tyres on a full-time race circuit having only…

Clipsal 500 Weekend Wrap

Over the summer off season many of the teams sit down and study their data from the past season, some will look at it in depth and begin formulating their plans for the 2017 series, some will wonder “what happened”, and others will make the leap and invest in new cars or newer parts. And there will be as always “newbies” to the game, they are our rookies this year, they’ll either purchase or lease a car and run it themselves or they’ll work with one of the established teams and some will just purchase the drive. Whatever their situation, for 2017 it's going to be a great year.  Clipsal has just proven this! The first Aussie Racing Cars Championship has been run and won,…
