HI Q Components NZ Formula First Series Round 5
Round 5 was at Manfeilds IRC Meeting Feb 18/19th 2017.
Testing Friday was wet all day so we managed to get the cars set up
for wet conditions, the humidity however was giving us grief when it came to
fuel tune and I left the track Friday night not confident I had a handle of engine set up.
Saturday was dry and warm so we had to make a best guess set up, based on the past information,
the humidity however was still nagging at me.
Callum manged his best Qualifying with P3, the others however did not get a clean lap, in
what was a typical Manfeild game of strategy.
The Saturday race was one of the best of the season so far lead changes every lap a classic race,
50 meters from the end there was contact and the following inquiry saw two Drivers excluded from the race results.
Callum this time picked up P2 on the grid for Sunday to take the teams first front row start this season.
The Sunday races went off without a problem to see Callum move up two places in the series standings.
P7 Callum Crawley
P9 Dylan Smith
P11 Alex Hawley
P16 Billy Frazer
