Another new winner for the record books
All Stars Media posted Sunday December 1, 2019.
Last night’s RD3 of the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series saw Terry Pitt in the Peake Machinery Maintenance Engineering SA8 lock in his first series A Main win.
An elated Pitt said at the post race interview “it was an awesome night, we started slow and kinda worked our way into it, we rolled out the bottom for the final, the track suited us and made for good racing. We got a bit lucky tonight, things went our way but we took our chances and made the most of it. It’s a big family deal, my brother and dad do a heap of hours in the shed just to get this deal ready. Brad, my wife and the kids are always with us in the shed. It’s a family deal and that’s the way we love it. ”
The line-up for the A looked strong with SA52 Matt Egel and V29 Michael Tancredi starting on pole with SA33 Mark Caruso 3rd, VA8 Dan Evans in 4th. Egel got the start with Tancredi close behind. Unfortunately going into 4 Tancredi pushed up high and almost turned it around leaving VA8 Evans, NT26 Tony Moule and SA42 Jamie Hendry nowhere to go bringing on the yellows. All 4 cars were good to restart but leaving Tancredi going to the very rear.
The restart line up order now moved SA8 Terry Pitt into P2 for the start. Egel again got the start with Caruso and Pitt close behind him. Driving the Whyalla Earthworks SA52 Egel pulled away from the field, lap after lap cutting thru the traffic and gaining a huge lead. With only 9 laps to go he got caught up with lap traffic unfortunately ending his night. Mark Caruso & Terry Pitt had been dicing each other fighting for 2nd and third with Pitt finally winning the battle.
At the restart with 9 to go Pitt stayed out front with Mark Caruso and brother Steven Caruso hot on his tail tank. Hard charger VA8 Dan Evans had worked his way up after starting from the rear at first restart finished 4th. SA11 Scott Enderl picking up a well-deserved 5th.
SA95 Jarman Dalitz, NT7 Colin Brooks, NT26 Tony Moule, V75 Mitch Smith, V7 Paul Solomon were all having their own race mid pack with some spectacular moves by all trying to gain positions on each other. Rookie racers to the series in VA10 Steven Loader had a great night managing to time trial in position 5 overall and finish 12th in the quality A Main field. Whilst Mildura based VA99 Corey Sandow showed consistency and secured another A Main finish. Unfortunately Marus Green in the Skidmore owned V71’s night was cut short with engine failure.
