RaceAway Track Time Pulsar racer Josh Heath has taken the overall round victory in Round 2 of the NSW Pulsar Series at Sydney Motorsport Park’s Brabham circuit on the weekend.
Heath qualified fourth, but his typically strong race-craft came to the fore in Race 1, when he charged to second place and finished just 0.2s behind winner Daniel Smith.
Heath took the lead on the third lap of Race 2 and pulled to a three-second win.
In Race 3, Heath battled with Matt Boylan in the early laps but once he had clear track, he again pulled clear, this time taking the win by almost four seconds.
As a result, Heath has improved to second in the series standings, just 33 points behind Smith.
Following his division win in February’s Wakefield 300 and strong showing in the Victorian Pulsar Series round at Winton in March, RaceAway Track Time junior driver Jack Winter was back in the NSW series and had his most competitive showing to date, qualifying sixth. After finishing 11th in Race 1 due to an incident, Winter recovered to seventh in Race 2 and fifth in Race 3.
Team owner Phil Alexander debuted the latest RaceAway Track Time Pulsar and was competitive from the outset, finishing seventh outright in the weekend’s final race and winning the Masters Cup for drivers over 40.
Gene Alexander had a challenging weekend after the team elected to experiment with a new differential setup, but still accumulated a healthy bundle of points and maintained his top-five position in the series standings.
The next round of the NSW Pulsar Series is on the Sydney Motorsport Park GP Circuit, 27-28 May.
