The Australian Pulsar Racing Association (APRA) Series returns to Sydney Motorsport Park for Round 3 this weekend, and RaceAway Track Time driver Josh Heath is looking to continue his winning form.
Heath took overall victory in the last round of the Pulsar Series, held on Sydney Motorsport Park’s Brabham Circuit, and is now just 33 points off the series lead.
This weekend’s event will be held on the traditional SMP Gardner (GP circuit), with its mix of flowing, constant-radius corners.
Once again, the RaceAway Track Time team will oversee a large fleet of Pulsars.
Following his consistent start to the season, Gene Alexander is hoping some recent improvements to his Pulsar – especially the differential setup – will yield some improved results.
Jack Winter demonstrated front-running pace in the previous round and will be aiming for more top five results, while Mark Crutcher has undertaken some testing ahead of the weekend.
Rookie racer Tom Pym is back behind the wheel, and returning to the motorsport scene is Dion Pangalos. The former production car racer has received technical support with his Pulsar from the RaceAway Track Time outfit, and makes his series debut this weekend.
RaceAway Track Time team owner Phil Alexander said its shaping up to be a busy weekend.
“It’s great to have the Pulsar Series back at a CAMS State Championship race meeting, and hopefully we can continue our recent strong run of form,” Alexander said.
“The GP circuit is a bit less complicated than the Brabham circuit, and the corners are generally fast and flowing. In these cars, it’s all about minimising mistakes and maintaining as much momentum as possible.”
The race meeting will consist of qualifying and Race 1 on Saturday, and Races 2 and 3 on Sunday.
