Club Racing Takes Centre At Teretonga Park

It was a day for the local series to take centre stage at Teretonga Park in Invercargill on Saturday.

Kyle Dawson of Invercargill in a Nissan GTR Skyline and Brian Scott of Dunedin in his Chev Corvette shared the wins across the four Noel McIntyre Drainage Clubmans Saloon races. Dawson won the first from Scott with Liam McDonald of Invercargill in his NZV8 spec Ford Falcon third.

In the both the second and third races Dawson was slow off the line due to a gearbox problem allowing Scott, in his first appearance at Teretonga Park in twelve months, to take the win each time with Dawson second, coming within .2 of a second of catching Scott in the third race. MacDonald was third on both occasions.

The third race was also the class race with Scott taking Class 4 honours for cars 2501cc & over, Bradley Dawson of Invercargill in his Toyota Trueno taking Class 2 (1301-1600cc) in seventh place and Invercargill’s Rachael Beck Class 3 in her Fiat 850 (1601-2500cc) in eighth place.

Dawson had no problems getting off the line in the Flying Farewell which featured a rolling start, blasting away to win. MacDonald retired with a throttle problem while Scott was going well behind Dawson only to stop with a power steering issue. That left Robert Ralston of Invercargill to claim second in his Nissan Bluebird and Brent Cross of Winton third in his Mitsubishi EVO 3.

Jason Crosbie of Invercargill dominated the Sports & Racing Car Class in his Crosbie Comet, leading home the smaller Formula Fords of Robin Williams from Riverton and Dave McKenzie of Invercargill in his Begg FM3 in all four races throughout the day.
