JORDAN TAKES MAIDEN RACE & ROUND WINS!
With Cooper unable to return in time to race due to real world S5000 commitments, our assault was reduced to four cars with Jordan Caruso, James Scott, Sam Blacklock and Zac Hanlin taking to the track.
Jordan showed pace from the outset, leading the way in opening practice before repeating that feat in qualifying taking pole position for Race 1. His start would be thwarted by wheelspin, losing three positions off the line. He was able to move past TTR's Hamstead for 3rd and they were both reeling in the leaders, however would have to settle for 3rd.
Race 2 would see Jordan starting 4th, however with a cleaner start would move into 3rd and sights set firmly on the leaders. The cooler conditions appeared to play into our hands, as Jordan was able to reel in the leaders, first moving into second and then passing Down at Moss. The pair would then go side by side through the final three turns before a coming together left Down wedged in the wall. Jordan was later reprieved of any wrongdoings by race control, and with eyes only looking forward was able to take a comfortable victory.
It was a difficult night for our other racers, with multiple DNFs in race 1 from early race incidents and a similar account in Race 2, although Zac Hanlin did a great job of driving through to 18th place in Race 2 from 31st on the grid.
Bring on Round 3!
