Two out of three isn’t bad
All Stars Media posted Monday December 10, 2018.
SA44 Dan Evans in the Evans Transport Maxim won his second 360 South Australian Title Saturday night at Sunline Speedway for RD 4 of the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series. At only 22 years of age Daniel has won two out of the last three S.A Title’s.
At such a young age to be recording these results shows the
talent Evans has. It was also Evans second Series feature win for the season after locking in RD 1 at Timmis Speedway.
Evans and Mark Caruso’s SA33 Cool lined up on the front row of the A with Caruso getting the start and leading for the first couple of laps. Unfortunately Caruso spun; Evans, Guerin & Lovegrove who were also running at the front avoided the incident but left WA30 Jamie Landrigan with nowhere to go and ended his night. The travelling West Australian was disappointed but casually commented – “that’s racing”; but still a disappointment for all the team that travelled from Port Headland to compete.
Caruso received top wing and rear nerf damage but was able to continue. At the same time the current series point’s leader V29 Michael Tancredi had a flat left rear which ended his race. SA96 Brendan Guerin put in a solid run locking in second place, with SA90 Michael Lovegrove home in third, SA8 Terry Pitt fourth and SA95 Jarmin Dalitz rounding out the top 5.
SA42 Jamie Hendry broke his Sunline luck with a solid 6th position. In the past Hendry hasn’t managed to get any good results at Sunline and 6th would certainly be a confidence boost to him. Another to have had a Waikerie curse is SA69 Cody Atkins and he too managed to finish the night without any damage. Caruso handled his ill handling car for 27 laps to finish in 9th and in doing do lock up some more points towards the championship.
Again weather played havoc with the night with temperatures in the mid 40’s throughout the week and winds to almost match. Then the rain clouds arrived just after Time trials forcing the venue to rework the race track before any other racing could be carried out. This was completed and the night recommenced but rain threatened all night forcing everyone to hustle around these conditions and team running to the best of their ability.
