Halfway point of the Championship Series.
The forth round of the HI Q Components Formula First National
Championship Series took place at Taupo’s TRS round.
The Team were running four cars this round, we had a couple of
problems over the weekend with a rod end failure, and believe it or not
a distributor cap split in half.
Qualifying was stopped early when another competitor spread oil all
over the track, another car spun on the oil into the gravel trap and the
subsequent red flag ended Qualifying after just two laps, so we were
not able to show our true pace, and as a result were down the grid on
where we expected to be.
But the Drivers managed to improve and we picked up six top ten finishes
best being a 5th for Callum Crawley in the #79 Autokraft, ARB supported
machine. we were also pleased with Billy Frazer who has never raced on the
Taupo circuit before picking up his first top ten result.
So we now have
in the series standings.
Our next round will be the IRC Manfeild event on February 18/19th.
