V8 Supercars – Scalex - Mornington Park (17-11-20)

 

Well, it’s been a couple of weeks but having registered my disgust with the website editing changes & also having been out of action myself for a week or so anyway, I thought it best that we get things back up and running again.

And what better way to start than with round 5 of the V8 Supercars at Dave Grays track at Mornington.  It was a good sized field this week bolstered with the welcome re-appearance of a very bleary eyed Callan. It was great to see that he had even managed to get out of his house wearing a clean T-Shirt & not one covered in stale vomited milk !  Well done sir.  I can promise you that things will only get easier…..…no, wait….. that’s wrong isn’t it.

Anyway, to the racing & nothing much has changed in the last few weeks at all really.  Adrian is still quick, and he proved this again by taking out this weeks round in style with a total of 115 laps from Phil a lap back on 114 & the baby boy himself, Callan in third, on 113.  Well done on a great comeback! The top three were a class above the rest of the field and it was a further 5 laps back to myself in a very distant 4th place on 108. John Batich was close behind in 5th on 107, with Dave Bantoft in 6th on 106 & then Bruce Thomas, who did a Brock & jumped in a second car after his own had died and finished 7th on 105 laps. Rob Golley slotted into 8th on 102, Dave Gray with a good drive in 9th on 100 & rounding out the top 10 Chris Priest on 98 laps. Rhys unfortunately decided he didn’t need to bring along a V8 Supercar this week, and so was forced to borrow a loaner which saw him finish rather lower than his usual standard in 11th on 94 laps. Finally, in 12th, Thomas Males after a great first couple of brackets drove consistently enough to rack up 90 laps for the round.
