Hi, my name is Naomi and I am a racing driver from South Australia. Trophy Class winner in the 2012 Australian Saloon Car Series. I have been racing Holden Commodore Saloon Cars/Super Six Touring Cars since 2006. Thanks to Frank Walsh Drilling for their ongoing support. I hope you enjoy reading my race reports and updates.

South Australian State Motor Racing Championship Round 2 2014, 31 May - 1 June

This was the second round in a row that's been affected by extreme weather. On the very wet Saturday I qualified 6th out of 7 Saloon Cars (3 late model and 4 early) before the day's events were called off due to flooding on & around the track.

The next day was much better with the sun shining and clear skies. With a hastily revised schedule we were given 3 races - 2x 10 laps and 1x 8 laps. In the first race I finished 6th out of 7 Saloon Cars. In race 2 I was able to improve by two spots to 4th, which was 2nd out of the early model cars. In the final race I dropped back to 5th but it was a much closer race than the results indicate, with all cars finishing in a fairly close bunch.

I am a bit rusty due to the lack of racing this year. We are still hoping to have the new VT out for round 3 on August 15-17th, with a practice day or two maybe!

As usual, here's a video highlight from the weekend, this one showing some drama in race 1:
