More updates to come early next week.
A cold and wet winters’ day met a large contingent of competitors for round 3 of the Tasmanian Hillclimb Series at Baskerville. There was hot competition for all class places through the day, and times improved further after a bite of pizza at lunchtime.
Congratulations to all competitors, and thank you to all the officials for another great event.
Another great day of racing, with many special moments. We enjoyed a clear blue sky over the fresh, smooth surface of Baskerville, with many competitors setting scintillating times.
Congratulations to all class winners, as all classes were hard fought. Liam Hooper took home fastest time of the day with a 58.21.
There were a few little offs but no damage, other than a few mechanical woes. The Roadkill award goes to Allan van Dulleman who blew a diff early on, only to race home in a borrowed car, grab a spare, and return and replace over lunchtime with the help of some competitors and other club members. He then went on with no sympathy for the replacement, weaker, item to dip under 60 seconds and claim the win in Class D (and second outright)!
Also worthy of mention is the Baskerville debut of two young club members, Max Watson and Tim Davidson. Both drove exeptionally well and improved significantly throughout the day; we’ll see a lot more of both in years to come.
Happy new year!
