Last night’s RD 4 of the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series saw V29 Michael Tancredi lock in his second A main victory for the season.
“After time trialling 13th with a broken bird cage I never thought I would be on the top step at the end of the night. Heat 1 we got put back 2 spots so my frame of mind at the start of the night wasn’t good but we had a good car and it was just a matter of me getting my head right and making it all the way to the end. The boys told me going out for the A to slow down, its 30 laps which is what I did. The car was a rocket all night and I have to thank TB, Anthony, Locky and the rest, they do a rippa job and without them I wouldn’t be able to go racing.” an excited Tancredi said at his postrace interview.
Tancredi won the Pole Shoot out and chose to start the A from P1. V7 Paul Solomon beside him in 2. NT7 Colin Brooks in 3 and VA8 Dan Evans in 4.
Tancredi was fast from the start and was pulling away from the field when young V49 Ricky Clarke who was enjoying his first run with the series hooked a rut and bought on the Reds 8 laps into the race. Clarke was unhurt but gutted as he sat on the infield for the remainder of the A. Again Tancredi pulled away at the start while VA8 Dan Evans and SA96 Brendan Guerin were gaining on Solomon in second. Evans finally worked his way into second then challenged the leader before sustaining rear end damage which bought on the yellows and ended his race. This allowed the field to bunch up again and give Tancredi clean air until lap traffic started to come into play when Solomon made a move and passed Tancredi but couldn’t make it stick. This was a wakeup call for the leader who appeared to find extra speed and pulled away for a deserving win. Top 5 ended up V29 Michael Tancredi, V7 Paul Solomon in 2nd, S96 Brendan Guerin 3rd, NT26 Tony Moule 4th and V16 James Wren.
“A highlight of the night was to watch V75 Mitch Smith pick up his first Oval Express Magazine Quick Time Award with a 14.707. The young hard charger is relatively new to the sport this only being his second full season of racing and on what was no doubt an emotional day for the Team it was brilliant to see him rewarded. Having said that the night didn’t finish well as they hurt their engine after Heat 1.” Searle said.
On a heavy race track at Blue Ribbon Raceway teams had their work cut out for them making it an elbows up exciting race and with Santa paying a visit to the kids the good crowd in attendance would have all gone home satisfied.
