FRASER'S ACTION PACKED WEEKEND AT WINTON
We were thrilled to be representing CLS Finance yet again at the third round of the Australian Swift Racing Series held at Winton.
We started off well in practice, clocking the fastest time for the weekend, before a slight misjudgement ended in a rollover. Fortunately, the car was able to be repaired and back on track for the final practice session that afternoon. A big thanks to the Trans Tasman Motorsport team for getting the car back on the track for us.
I was a bit tentative in the afternoon practice, but came back the next morning and topped the timesheets in the practice session. I then qualified second for the first race, behind Callan Sayers.
I managed to pass Callan early on and led for the whole of the race. I was pleased to bring the win home for CLS Finance.
The second race saw the first four places reversed on the grid, which meant I started in P4. Several laps into the race, there was a big accident which saw Ben Grice take out Callan Sayers, get airborne and spin across the track in front of the field. I saw it about to happen and backed out of it. I was fortunate that Andrew Price gave me room to get around Ben, who was lucky to come to a stop before hitting the wall.
This put me back and I ended up finishing the race in third.
In the third race, the setup of the car was not quite to my liking with a lot more understeer than in the previous races. The race started well and I ran in second for the first few laps before the tyres went off and I struggled with understeer. I ended up finishing in fourth in the race.
I finished the round in third. Despite this being a disappointing weekend for me, I am still happy to have finished on the podium and maintain my championship lead considering the roll on Friday morning.
I would like to thank CLS Finance for supporting me and for continuing to encourage me after the roll over.
