Hampton Downs Round 3
The Team were running four cars this round, with the new addition of Billy Frazer,
Billy joined the Team following a successful Test at Manfeild Pre Xmas.
The Sabre Driving Squad were underdone when it came to Mileage and
experience on the Hampton Downs Track, having not Driven there before
and only getting two Friday practice sessions, they were well underdone in
So it was better to look at the potential rather than the results and at times each
Driver showed that they and the cars had good pace, it was only going to be a little
luck in Qualifying and we could be in with a good result.
Quailing did not go our way the #53 Car ran a bearing, and the 79# car had
the ignition system burn out following a electrical short, the Team in its ususal
fashion got stuck in and replaced the Engine and fitted a new ignition system
in time for race one. It was handy to have all the necessary parts in stock.
So we finished the weekend with #79,#53#41 getting top ten finishes, to emphasis
that the cars have the speed without question.
Our next round is this coming weekend at Taupo TRS round, so the crew have three days
to get the cars ready for round 4 as well as fitting there usual work duties.
Thanks to the crew for all the hard work and dedication.
Championship placings are;
7th Dylan Smith
9th Callum Crawley
10th Alex Hawley
18th Billy Frazer
