Winton SuperSprint May 20 - 22 2016

Well another V8 event done and dusted and what a great w/end it was weather was cool but fine and the racing was great. Made my usual trek up to Winton after work Thursday to stay onsite in the bunk house always a laugh when staying with a large group of Officials around 30 of us in the Bunkhouse for this event so a full house.
Looking forward to see the new category of Toyota 86 Series about 38 cars in the field so should be interesting also supporting the Supercars we have the V8 utes, Touring Car masters and the Kumho V8s.
On Friday I was assigned Post 7.0 or known has the Tank working this CNR on my own which is pretty cool the w/end I was Assigned post 9.0 Black Flag Relay point with Alison from NSW.
Overall a good w/end with no reports from Friday at my point but we had a few on the w/end from 9.0 mainly side to side contact has they come through the cleavage all trying to get some space and pass before the straight.
The Toyota's did not let us down with plenty finding the dirt and lots of pushing and shoving which was expected seeing there was a lot of young drivers in these cars.
Overall another great event with a great Team and good crowds at the track, the true color track walk on Sunday again was great that we were able to have time to take part and meet the drivers and check out the cars before we got into the days racing.
Well looked after by Winton with dinner and drinks on Saturday night and good company Friday night where many of us had tea at the Benalla Golf Club.
Back up to Winton Next w/end for the Historic Winton round 40 years so should be another great w/end. Until next time stay safe have fun.
