IN FORM FOR 6 HOUR
In the lead up to the Mallala 6 Hour regularity event at the end of April, Team Excel competed at Round 2 of the Austin 7 Club's Regularity Championships on April 3rd.
Leon Gagliardi, who is sharing the driving with me in the 6 hour, got his first taste of being behind the wheel, and after completing his first ever laps on Saturday, placed 3rd outright.
Leon was driving the car we will share, and was frequently near the pointy end of the time sheets, with some 2nd and 3rd place heats. That gave him enough points to claim a spot on the podium in his debut event.
Team Excel had great form leading into the 6 hour. Along with Leon's 3rd place, Daniel Westcott won the event in his Excel, following up my victory at Round 1.
We have high hopes for the end of the month!
