South Australian State Championships Round 1

Asher JohnstonIt was a perfect weekend results-wise for us at Mallala at the first round of the SA State Championships. Pole position, followed by 3 race wins and 3 fastest laps was a fantastic way to start the championship.

Friday was an intensive test day for us with Alan and Graham from GAC and we achieved a lot, getting the car to handle how they would expect in the UK.

Qualifying was shortened by a red flag when a car greeted the concrete on pit wall exiting turn 2. I managed to post a solid time early so I was reasonably happy going into the races.

I struggled early in all the races, mainly due to 3 poor starts, which dropped me to 2nd going into the first corner. The GAC has unbelievable mid corner grip and I was able to pass quickly back into the lead and pull away in each race.

The lap times we did were ok, but still not were I'd like to see them. Now we have a month break before our next test day, we will start our engine development program and also continue to develop the suspension setup on the car.

Thanks as always to my team; Dad, Mum, Kev, Leon, and Tommo, Alan and Graham from GAC for spending the last 2 race meeting helping us, Cartek, Duplex IT and Drive to Live for their continued support.
