Team Racing at the
2011 South Australian State Champs


Classic B was flown on Saturday at the 2011 South Australian State Champs and had 7 teams entered. Fastest 70 lap heat was by Paul Stein and Ric Justic on 2.59.56 with the PB Enya. Graeme Wilson and Mark Ellins recorded a 3:12.91 with the ex Hallowell Swooper with B25R and the Harry Bailey/Ken Hunting Irvine Galaxies were right on the pace with a 3:04.84.

Bryce Young and Murray Wilson had a best of 3:21.13 and Neil and John should have definitely slept in at the motel and had a leisurely breakfast in bed. It was just one of those Classic B days best forgotten. Short of laps in round one with the Irvine Rocket, round two saw an electrical wire connection break at the crucial pitstop with the OS FX Streak.

Maris Dislers and Mark Poschkens stunned everyone by doing 105 mph for over 80 laps in their GMS 25 Rocket. People were even more shocked when it was discovered they were using diesel fuel!!!

Perhaps they should have checked the rules and read about the compulsory pit stop required in the 70 lap heat. Interestingly, the current rules don’t specify any compulsory stops in the final… Perhaps my good buddies Geoff and Grant have already picked up on that!

The final was in the best traditions of Classic B racing. A super close contest from a variety of engines and models.

 

Eventually it was Wilson/Ellins that won in 6:27.31, less than a second in front of Justic/Stein on 6:28.29. Harry and Ken were right on their heels when their watch was stopped on 6:36.47.

Wilson/Ellins 2 stopped the race by achieving the usual 50 lap range but both Paul and Harry’s model took 3 stops to finish. IMHO, if Harry had chosen to use a battery assistant he would have just got over the line first, as I reckon it is worth 10 seconds in a 3 stop 140 lap final.

Six teams fronted Sunday morning for a bit of
VTR fun at the Monarto hard surface in South Australia. Ric Justic and Paul Stein again had clearly the fastest heat with a blistering 3:12.94. Next quickest was Murray Wilson and Mark Poschkens with a 3:22.36 followed by Hallowell/Baker on 3:27.20. Just 22 hundredths of a second behind that was Wilson/Ellins on 3:27.42. Close!

The 160 lap final was flown in windy conditions and was won easily by Ric and Paul in 7:06.35 from John and Neil in 7:16.6. After the race was over there was a DQ handed out to H/B for running over the lines of Murray and Posh at the first stop.

F2C was again won in SA by Murray Wilson and Mark Poschkens.
F2F provided another victory for Ric Justic and Paul Stein with Wilson/Ellins in second spot.
