SANDOWN 500 SEPT 16-18 2016

What a great w/end at Sandown for the retro round of Supercars was assigned Sector at 0.5 for the three days with Rebecca, Zoe and Theresa on coms was a mainly fine day with practice and Qualifying rounds for all support categories which included Formula 4s, Dunlop Development Series V8s and Porsche Carrera Cup cars with the SuperCars having a number of practice sessions for co- drivers and main drivers.
First event of the day the track was still a little wet fro overnight rain the F4s came out on track and one spun and hit the wall just before our flag point and stopped about 100m down the track up against the wall first incident and first red flag of many in what was going to be an eventful w/end around the track.
Saturday and Sunday I had a different Team Tony,Tanya and Micheal was a great team to be with even though we didn't get anymore incidents there was plenty of action around the track with some big offs in Dunlop, F4s and Supercars I think the Porsche category was the only ones to keep it fairly clean.The track was dry on Saturday but stayed wet on Sunday with light showers on and off all day.

Was good to see the Retro livery and uniforms on some of the Supercar Teams and the old race cars on display around the venue.
Next event for me is Winton Vmrc R3 24th & 25 Sept and onto the Big one for the Year Bathurst 1000 in October
