TAUPO DUAL SPRINTS

What a great day for racing at Taupo.  Light overcast, no wind, and significantly cooler temperatures than we've been used to in the last month!  It made for a perfect day to be in a race suit and having fun around the track at Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park.  Such a pity then that more competitors didn't come out to play.

But those that were there had a great day.  Some interesting cars out there.  Todd and Rhys Bawden brought their BMW indurance car out for some testing ahead of the series which starts at the end of March.  Both Neil Rogers and Jordan Grant were debuting their cars after some sigificant upgrades - Neil had a new engine and Jordan a new computer and dash upgrade.  So there was to be some serious rivalry between these two good friends.  Chris Hawkes brought the not so familiar Chev Corvette and the Hayward brothers dual drove their Lemons Nissan Maxima (what we in the control room dubbed the racing sofa!).  Geoff Douch had his Vauxhall Viva out and new member Mike Burr had his first event in his racing Morris Mini Cooper S.  Andy Martin also had a Lemons car, a Honda Integra, and Basil, Shane, Dianne, Caitlyn and Nick M, were all there in their usual cars.

Along with a sprinkling of other clubs competitors, we had 26 cars.  Sadly not enough to cover costs at the track. 

However those that were there had a great day, with Neil Rogers the best of the MBOP crowd, coming home second behind the endurance car of Todd Bawden.  Bruce Clothier from HCC in his giant killing Starlet came third, with Chris Hawkes and Jordan Grant bringing up 4th and 5th.

Well done to all for a good day with no serious incidents.  Results are now posted as are updated club points.
