Ray Tulk Memorial - Ellenbrook Speedway

  

We opened our racing season at Ellenbrook Speedway on Saturday

afternoon for their final twilight meeting. This track is situated about 35 km from Perth just past the Swan Valley. We were expecting rain and as a

result the track curators put very little water on the track. The rain did not

eventuate so the track was very dry and hard on tyres.

We started the first heat from the back and worked up to position 6. We

started the second heat from the pole and won that quite convincingly. Our lap times were very good in the second heat.

The points from the two heats gave us a start from position 5 in the 30 lap final. Even though the track was dry we opted for a slightly softer tyre and our aim was to run the high line and try to make that work. Initially this idea

worked well but as our rear tyres began to wear (see photo above of left

and right rear tyres) the car slowed. We ended up with and 10th place

finish which was not exactly to plan but is a reasonable start to what I am

sure will be another great season.

Our new car is progressing nicely and time permitting we are expecting to

have that ready to race in about a month. We have sold our blue car from

last season. Zac Tyson from Mildura will take delivery of that car in the

next fortnight.

Thanks for your support.

Opening Night Powerpalooza - Perth Motorplex

Opening night at the Perth Motorplex last night and what a great night. The

crowd was good, weather nice and a slick show that had our feature done

at 9pm.

It was a different format with qualifying in a group and then one heat race

with a shorter 25 lap feature. We qualified 6th and then finished 3rd in our

heat which meant we started 9th in the feature. It was a bit of a bottle neck

at the start and we slipped back a few spots but got rolling around the top

and got back to 9th after a couple of laps. We then started moving forward

making positions. We got up to 6th and probably should have got 5th but

was a bit unfortunate approaching the line with a slower car stopping on

the track.

As the race went on we got quicker and quicker, in fact towards the end of

the race we were the quickest car on the track. It has been a flatter start to

the season and 6th doesn’t always sound that impressive but we are

running quite well at the moment. Just need a few things to roll our way

and the results will come.

We are back at the Motorplex next weekend for round three of the Sims

Metal Pro Dirt Series

Thanks for your support.

Super Speedway Stampede - Perth Motorplex

Last night we were at the Perth Motorplex for round three of the Sims

Metal Management Pro Dirt Series. With 19 cars nominated we finished

2nd and 3rd in our heats giving us a 5th place starting spot in the feature.

We got a great start, getting up to 3rd place at the end of the first lap. We

ran there for a couple of laps but I pushed a bit hard, jumped the cushion

and made heavy contact with the wall. Bit unfortunate as I lost two

positions but we were able to make those spots back over the next few

laps. We then pushed forward, challenging for the lead as we moved

through lapped traffic but were just unable to get it done. We ended up

third in the feature which I am quite happy with.

After a slower start results wise, it was good to get our first podium of the

season. We have moved into 4th position in the standings and we are

looking really good. We did some work during the week on some of our

suspension, building some new Integra shocks and different King Spring

combinations and we are really happy with how it went. We have a

weekend off so hopefully we can make a few more improvements and

keep getting up the points standings and get the win.

King Of Kwinana - Perth Motorplex

Last night we were at the Perth Motorplex for round four of the Sims Metal

Management Pro Dirt Series. With 21 cars nominated we qualified 5th and finished 4th in our heat, giving us an 11th place starting spot in the feature.

We got a good start and moved up to the highline and started moving forward. By

lap 20 we were in 2nd and looking good. By the time we got to 2nd we were almost 12 seconds behind 1st place. We slowly chipped away at the leader but ran out of time, but getting our 2nd podium of the season.

It was great night, another bumper crowd and fantastic for us to keep the

momentum rolling. We are equal 2nd in the Sims Metal Pro Dirt Series and 2nd in the Di Candilo Steel City Track Championship.

We are back at the Motorplex next weekend for round five, where we can keep

the momentum going and hopefully get the win. Just need to qualify better.

I appreciate all the support that I get and it is great when we can offer things back

to our supporters. John Di Candilo from Di Candilo Steel City is offering account

prices for Late Model fans. If you have any steel needs give the guys at Di

Candilo a call, quote Late Model WA and get a great price on steel.

Our new car is very close, I will get some pictures together this week and get

them out to you. We are hoping to have a test with it on the Wednesday before

the meeting at the Motorplex on the 8th of December.

Thanks for your support.

Super Speedway - Perth Motorplex

Hope you have been well. On the weekend we raced at the Motorplex for round

five of the Sims Metals Pro Dirt Series. We have been on a bit of a run recently

and we started the night well, starting 8th and getting up to 4th and setting the

quick time for the heat. We finished 3rd in the next heat but unfortunately we were relegated two spots for an infield pass. Your wheels are not allowed to go below the white line and as you can see in the picture above, we are slightly below. I thought it was a bit stiff at the time but probably the right call.

This meant we lost some starting positions and started 8th in the feature. We got

off to a decent start picking up some positions but something wasn’t 100% with

the right front and I got into the fence. Not ideal as that did more damage and we

just tried to bring it home and not get a DNF. We ended up 11th out of 21 which

was a bit disappointing as I wanted to carry on the momentum that we had.

An interesting night, testing the extremes of the track both the infield and the

fence. We slipped back to 3rd in the points standings but it is really close on top

and nothing to be concerned about.

We have a weekend off this weekend before getting back to the Motorplex for

round 6 of the series.

Thanks for your support.
