Lawrie Takes Points at Clubsport Event

Andrew Lawrie of Invercargill was the big winner at Round 2 of the Southland Sports Car Club’s Evolution Motorsport ClubSport Championship at Teretonga Park on Sunday.

Lawrie, in his Mitsubishi Mirage, won the Motorkhana event in the morning from Craig Allan in a Honda Prelude with Stacy Lines third in a Mini while in the afternoon he won the Autocross with Allan again the runner-up, this time in a Nissan 180SX. Liam MacDonald was third in his Nissan NX in a very, very close finish in the Autocross with Lawrie taking the honours with a best time of 68.23 seconds. Allan recorded a 68.33 and MacDonald a 68.35. MacDonald had finished runner-up in the opening round of the Autocross last month with Allan third on that occasion.

Several new faces tackled their first ClubSport event with some old faces returning after a break while the winner of Class B in the South Island Endurance Series 1 Hour race at the circuit a week ago, Jordan Michels, returned for his second ClubSport event in a Toyota Corona. Twenty-eight drivers entered the Motorkhana with thirty-four in the Autocross.

Southland Sports Car Club Clubsport Co-ordinator Malcolm Mitchell said, “it was a really, really good day” Anyone is welcome to contact him at 021 666 956 or [email protected] to discuss becoming involved in the sport. Drivers as young as twelve can compete in ClubSport with parental or guardian consent and not only is it fun it is also a great way to enhance driving skills.

The next round of the championship is on Sunday 18 October.
