Eastern States Speedway
12 April 2009
This was a big weekend with three night's racing and four titles up for grabs. On Friday in Nelson was the Top of the South Easter Champs. We finished 3rd for the night could have done a little better but DNF'ed the 2nd heat with a flat tyre while leading the race. 2nd went to Trevor Elliot from Christchurch and 1st to local Shane Carey.
Night Two was the Nelson Club champs taken out by Ian Burson with me 2nd and Ron Taylor in 3rd.
Sunday Night saw us all head to Blenheim for the Marlborough Super Saloon Champs and the Tasman Champs, which was, combined points from the three nights.
With a 2nd, 4th and 1st placing's we were good enough for 2nd for the night, although we were promoted to first after Paul Hodson from Wellington was relegated some points for jumping the start in the first heat. This is under appeal to SNZ so depending on the outcome as to whether we officially take 1st or 2nd for the night. Either way we had enough points to take 1st place for Tasman Champs overall for the weekend.
