RaceAway Track Time Australian Pulsar Racing Association (APRA) rookie Tim Colombrita has continued his impressive transition from go-karts to tin-top race cars, teaming up with his brother Anthony to finish as the highest-placed APRA-spec Pulsar in the Super TT endurance race on Sunday.
Tim and Anthony were awarded the trophy for third in the Under 2 Litre Treaded Tyre Class, and finished 11th outright in a field of 25 – an impressive performance against some much more powerful machinery.
RaceAway Track Time owner Phil Alexander was thrilled with the result.
“Tim is adapting superbly to Pulsar racing, and competing in the endurance event was valuable experience for him,” Alexander said.
“Anthony did well too – he had never competed in a front-wheel-drive car before, and was doing competitive times straight away. Overall, it was a fantastic result and I’m looking forward to seeing Tim continuing his progression throughout the season.
It was a successful weekend for the RaceAway stable of drivers in Round 2 of the APRA Series as well, Josh Heath taking the early championship lead with a clean-sweep of race wins. After qualifying second, Heath made a slow start in Race 1 due to starting on the damp side of the circuit, but fought his way back to the front, completing the hat-trick with wins in Races 2 and 3.
Tim Colombrita finished 12th in the first two races before improving to eighth in the final, while RaceAway Track Time assisted with trackside operations for Mark Crutcher, Dion Pangalos, Andy Lawler, Adam Leacy and newcomer Scott Thompson.
Also in the RaceAway stable, driving the pink lease N15 Pulsar, was Shane Fowler, who survived a spectacular moment at Turn 1.
RaceAway Track Time’s attention now turns to this weekend’s Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour, where the team will run two Toyota 86s.
