Round 1 A sprints Turns up heat!

Welcome again to another year of the Warwick district sporting car club super sprints series. On the 9th of February, round 1 of the A series kicked off with hot competition and some hot track temperatures. Seven runs were completed with each run consisting of 3 laps on the large 3 km Circuit K.                  

There were some new competition cars as well as the regulars getting a dust off and the occasional cobweb being blown out. There was a good variety of open wheelers competing in the A series, with by far the fastest being Vikki Paxton in her V8 powered Dallara. Vikki was the 2018 A series winner.

Starting for the first time and competing in the junior class was Billy O’Neil. Billy was one of the juniors who received a passenger run with David Reynolds around Morgan Park raceway last year during the sprints fun day.

The Sun belted down on everyone, which may have contributed to a few incidents during the weekend. Recovery crew and officials were kept on their toes and The Pit Exit Café helped keep everyone cool throughout the weekend by supplying food and refreshments.

Vikki Paxton now leads the Championship points followed by Jae Collins in second place with Ashley Bright in third.

The B series is next for their first round for 2019 and will be held on the 2nd and 3rd of March followed by round 1 of the C series on the 23rd and 24th of March. Spectator entry for all the super sprints is free of charge and are a fantastic action packed weekend with a large variety of different cars competing
