Competition Report – November 2013

This is my first report as competition secretary. I’d just like to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped me.

Over the past few months we have had three events to report on.

First off there was round four of the MSCA super sprint held on the 25th August.

We had four cars on track.

Rodger in his rebuilt GT6 who decided to trailer his car after engine problems and didn’t want to take any chances with the new motor.

Robin George in his TR7 who had no brake lights during scrutineering. He managed to get them fixed but unfortunately engine problems put an end to his day too.

Neil Martin in his TR7 v8 had a good run all day and managed a personal best time of 127.693in round two.

Duane Kaak in his TR7 v8 also had a good run during the day and achieved a personal best time of 130.038 in round three.

Congratulations to Neil and Duane.

14th & 15th September was the Modern Regularity Nationals at Mallala. First time ever a whole weekend competition.

3 Triumphs Competed. Robin George, Neil Martin & Duane Kaak all in TR7s Neil had a fuel starvation problem at top speed and in corners. When it wasn’t an issue, Neil was his usual “Peter Perfect” for the first few laps in each event and could have taken home the gold…..

Robin did well on day 1, but retired after an unusual tappet noise persisted before the beginning of Day 2.

Duane was doing well on day one but at the start of Day 2 he suffered a snapped throttle cable and needed a tow back to the pits. His car was repaired and back on track in no time to finish off a good weekend for him.

At the time of printing there were no results for round 5 of the MSCA Super Sprint held on the 20th October.

Enjoy your racing.

Dean Berlemon.
