Phillip Island WD-40 V8 Supercars 16 & 17 April 2016

Another great W/end at Phillip Island this event I was working 9.6 Lukey Heights but has a Sector Marshal in Training with Mario Guiding me. We had a few offs into the Kitty litter on both days and plenty of run offs. Formula 4 on Saturday was the only one that needed a tow after hitting the Tyre wall lightly a few V8s from the Dunlop Series also finding their way into the litter Sunday one lighty touching the Tyre's but able to get himself out to continue on otherwise a reasonably quiet w/end with some big things happening with the Aussie Cars at turn four and latter a roll over near 8 keeping everyone one their toes.
Apart from the Supercars we had Aussie Racing cars, Dunlop V8s, Formula 4 and V8 Utes.
Scott Mclaughlin was on fire all w/end in the Volvo getting both poll and race wins well done also Team Penske with Fabian Coulthard getting 3rd on Sat and Scott Pye 3rd on Sunday, Whincup Red Bull 2nd on Sat and Winterbottom in the Bottle O Ford 2nd on Sunday.
Overall the weather was pretty good and a great finish to the main race on Sunday with the Safety Car bring the field together for the last ten laps.
Was good to learn new things and understand a different role in this big Motorsport family of ours and how we all work together to make the race meeting a better and Safer place for all of us to enjoy.
Back at Phillip Is in two weeks for a state round to do it all again.
Stay Safe till next time.
