Shannons Nationals - Mallala, 5-7 June 2009

This was another successful meeting for us. After a very wet Friday practice, I qualified 10th with a best time of 1:23.6949. I finished race 1 in 9th place with a new personal best time of 1:22.8801 - this was the first time in the 1:22s and we were very happy.

Unfortunately ours was the only 'old' car at this meeting, so despite the great lap times we weren't very competitive.

Sunday was better with two more 9th place finishes and another personal best of 1:22.4743 in race 3 - only 2/10ths of a second slower than some of the new model cars which is a good achievement. I got very close to being in a passing position several times but couldn't quite make it 'stick'.

All things considered we were quite happy with this meeting, and looking forward to mixing it with the faster competitors at the next state meeting!
