Friday Night Challenge 13.03.20 BLOG

Good Evening and welcome to another night of Kington Park Raceway’s Friday Night Challenge. This evening we had a total of 8 driver rock up for tonight’s races. This means that everyone got to race in the super final! Everyone geared up and ready to get out there racing on the 1100m Lemans Circuit. What a hell of a night out!

The drivers head out for their warmup lap behind the pace kart, as the pace kart pulls into pit lane as the drivers slowly crawl closer to the start line with nerves of steel. Green light goes and we are underway what a close start by the group it is even going into turn two with Stacey Maiden keeping top spot just holding off a very attacking Stefan Lawrence. A little back in the field we see a good fight going for 5th place between Shaun Koimans and John Buchanan not out of the mix is Elijah Falzon as they good flying down the main straight to complete the opening lap.

Stacey is still managing to hold off Stefan who by now as they go into turn one is right on her bumper, Steven Darlington has kept himself out of any trouble and is chasing hard to catch the leading pack of Stacey and Stefan. John is trying to rain in Shaun who is opening a good little lead between himself. John who can see in the distance Steven.  As they come motoring out of turn 8 Stacey still holding off Stefan with Steven not far behind Shaun gets a little wide out of corner losing the gap he had over John and there side by side a down the main straight being chased hard by Elijah, bob Cripps is pulling away from Mathew Waller for 8th place.

Stacey goes to deep into turn one and Stefan tries but Stacey closes the door it looks like we could have led change this lap. Stefan is waiting for an opportunity to grab first position away from Stacey. Turn 3 and we have a new leader Stacey runs a little wide and we see Stefan take the lead. Back to the battle for 4th we see Shaun once again pulling just away from John. Could Shaun catch up to Steven.

4 laps to go and we have our top three places all do 61 second laps with Stefan who is in first place do a 61.645 second. Not to be out done and wanting to get the lead back Stacey did a 61.416 second . Even though Steven is been left behind by the leading pack he still trying his best to catch up to them with a 61.684 second. With all the 8 drivers settled into their positions we come down to our final lap of the final! With Stefan Lawrence proving to be just to good tonight not only did take out the final he also won all the heats. Stefan crossing the finishing line in 1st sending the chequered flag waving and signalling the end of yet another great Friday Night Challenge.
