SA State Championships 2008 - rounds 1 & 2

After the excitement of Bathurst, we have settled back into the 'routine' of state meetings at Mallala.

Round 1 was a twilight meeting on 12 April 2008. I qualified 7th out of 8 cars on the cold and slippery track. I finished in the same position in race 1 after suffering from a serious lack of grip and then 6th out of 7 in race 2. The final race was held after dark, which I always enjoy, and I finished 5th.

Round 2 was another twilight meeting, held on 3 May. It was great to see a healthy field of 13 cars at this event. It was a little warmer than round 1 but the track still didn't seem to have much grip. I qualified 11th and finished race 1 last after having a couple of spins. I finished 12th out of 12 in race 2, despite setting a new personal best lap time of 1:24.1283 - what can I say; the afternoon weather had cooled and everyone was setting good times, and of course we had a few national competitors running their newer model cars. Race 3 went a bit better and I finished 7th out of 12.
