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…
