2015 S&J Automotive Club Championship – Rnd 3 – Mount Alma Hillclimb
Well done Garry Dodd for his best personal best time of 46.43 seconds! This is also a new club member record!
There were some close battles with Mark gardiner pulling off a best last run pass to take Remo by point of a second!! Tania Langcake did well to make the standard 2L GC8 match the times of her ’06 2.L from last year. Jason Bartsch and Damien Hirst were both right behind Garry with 46 sec runs. Remo Silicano showed strong potential with the fastest speed trap time of 143km/h and a 47 sec run on his very first time at Alma. Richard Paul had the best launches of the day, consistently running great speed trap times but was not able to better his Personal Best, probably due to the weight of his new full roll cage.
In all it was a great weekend, good to see a few new members give it a good go. While it is a long wait til next year’s Alma, it is only a couple of weeks until the next club Championship round; Ozgymkhana!
