V8 Supercars (Scalex)

Round 7, Stratton Valley (1/12/20)

The last round of this series finally, and for what are sometimes bemoaned in the real world as being just a bunch of racing taxis, it has been a surprisingly good, even & well contested series. In the racing it was Adrian Gray (Driven by Bruce) who took out the win in an excellent drive….showing that Bruce’s disinterest in entering a car of his own might want a re-think by the time this series comes round again. Adrian’s car finished on 78 laps & was 2 clear of Callen in another good showing for 2nd on 76.  Phil shared the 76 lap total, but track position shuffled him back to 3rd this week, however this was good enough as we shall see later. An incredibly tight battle next up for 4th to 7th saw 4 drivers all finish on the same number of laps (73), and it was a case of thoroughly checking the cars strewn around the track at the end to determine final positions.  John Batich took 4th in the end, ahead of myself (5th), Dave Bantoft in 6th & Rhys Filbee in 7th. A tough difference of 5 points between JB & Rhys for the sake of half a lap ! Another shared total of 70 laps saw Chris Priest edge out Dave Gray for 8th & 9th, with Rob & Nick Golley also sharing the father son bond of finishing both on 68 laps.  Rob won the private battle though and finished in the top 10 with Nick 11th.  Nick also had the opportunity of proxying for Tom Males and enjoyed a good run to rack up an impressive 62 laps for the final place on the card.

In the overall series results, incredibly it was NOT a blue liveried Ford that won the series.  Phils consistency was enough to take out the win on 146 points, 2 points clear of Adrian Gray (144), with John Batich in a very good solid performance grabbing 3rd sport on the table on 138 totals.  Good racing from all, although I think a bit of variety among the car liveries might be in order next time round…..for the marshall’s sake !
