B+H Racing Series Labour Weekend 2020

What a day the Sunday of Labour Weekend was for the team at 24 red racing starting with our supporter turnout. It seemed there was a sea of red out watching and the drivers all made mention of it as they were circulating.

 

After blistering session Adam qualified car #24 the dc2 , 2nd overall in the Store Rite 100!  Driving hard, he ran between 2 and 4th all race and was the first to take the checkered flag at the line but was announced second after the winning car was able to limp out of the pits and cross the line.

 

Car # 139 1st in class 0-1600cc and 3rd overall in the Fleet Line 500 – these guys were driving hard all day and had the Levin buzzing. Quick driver changes as well as much improved fuel stops from last year saw this car in contention from the 3-hour mark.  Well done to Nick, Alan, Mathew and Warren.

Car # 24 2nd in class 1600-2000cc and 5th overall in the Fleet Line 500 – consistent lap times saw these guys be there or there abouts all day long. Partnered with their own race engineer, Gareth these guys were hot to watch,

Fantastic effort thanks for making the trip Mark and Peter and Ole mate Gareth.

Round 2 – Pukekohe Park

4th of October saw the team all head to Pukekohe Park.

On the day we had cars in the 2k cup, Production Race Series and the Ssanayong.

The feature for us was Nik in the Ssanyong. Nik partners up with the Creme Team and what a battle it was.  The Creme team did well with Adam Carpenter taking out the first race and Mark Mallard the second and our own Nik Lowndes 3rd in the finale. The racing was very competitive but also a little loose. these trucks race tight but smart with door handle racing the norm but this time there was a lot more closing the door on fellow competitors and leaving them stranded with no where to go than ever before, something for the event organizer’s to ponder as we don’t want wrecked ute’s and no one left by round 5.

We are very proud of Nik’s results as he struggles on new tyre’s so now the edges are off he is will be hot for a good result at the end of November.

2kcup was fast with the one field this season adding to the spirit of the event. Mathew did well after a long break as did Alan who was posting his best times. Chris and Nick battled with each other all day and also had a great time particularly in race 1.

 

Chris had his DC2 there with the production race series and was thrilled at how it went after it had a gearbox and Cv rebuild. The chance to use the long strait comes rarely so the car was getting to some good speeds too. the handling has been improved dramatically.

Next meeting for the team is the B+H at labour weekend.
