Racing to the End of the Year đźš—đź’¨

November 17, 2021

Massive 2 weeks of motor racing done and dusted with the RaceAway Track Time team.

 

On Friday the 5th we saw a wild & windy weather day at Pheasant Wood for our Super Track Day. With over 20 drivers on the circuit, the track managed to clear up allowing the drivers to get some exciting laps in. The day introduced 15 new drivers to the track, including some new Mazda RX8 owners. Overall a fantastic day as the general consensus stated they’ll be back for the next one.

 

The following Sat and Sun (6-7) was spent at Sydney Motorsport Park for the 2nd round of the V8 Supercars Championship. As the support category, the Production Cars set an all-time record with 53 entries. On the day we had Scott Thompson (current APRA competitor) driving in our Mazda RX8 Cup Car checking out what the rotary scene is all about. The same weekend we had our Road to Bathurst driver Scott Freestone taking home the class win in the Mazda SP25. Snatching the big trophy in style, nothing could stop his grin from ear-to-ear (or in his case beard-to-beard).

 

A quick 2-day turn around saw us head up the road to Mount Panorama for Bathurst Challenge, sprint section. The boss man, Phil Alexander, drove in another one of our RX8 Cup Cars coaching RTB driver Scott Freestone yet again in the Mazda SP25. Under Phil’s guidance, Scott was shown all about the intricacies and confrontations of the Bathurst circuit. By the end of the week, Scott’s development and successful driving culminated in him receiving a seat in the 2022 Bathurst 6 hour enduro.

 

That weekend, driver coach Phil Alexander raced down to Winton Raceway for the APRA Pulsars Round spending some 1-1 time with the drivers. Massive Congratulations to first time race winner Mark Crutcher taking all 4 wins. RaceAway not only a proud APRA sponsor but started Mark on his motorsport journey. What an exciting development!

 

With the massive 2 weeks completed, the RA team will have a bit of a breather, then travel back to Pheasant Wood Circuit for a packed out November 19th Super Track Day.

 

As we race to the end of the year, be sure to keep an eye out for upcoming race events and arrive ‘n’ drive packages in the RX8 Cup Series, APRA Pulsar Series and the DEPUTY 4hr Enduro.
