An awesome weekend of racing for the Downer / Targa Racing MX5’s in the 3rd round of the CUE Prod Sports one hour at Queensland Raceway. Mark Mackay and Justin Ruggier finished 3rd in E class and first Mazda MX5 NC home whilst Nick Martinenko and I were 1st MX5 home finishing 3rd in C class behind the Porsche and Ginetta. I got tagged early in the race dicing with the class wining 944 Porsche which bent a track rod and meant the car was interesting on the fast right handers (not that there is many of them at Queensland Raceway…)
Many thanks to Tony B and his lovely wife Roz for their hospitality, Patsy for keeping us fed and Joe, Rohan and Robyn for the great pit work.
I had an awesome dice with Tony B and Russell and we had some very close, clean racing.
Was great to catch up with all of our Queensland friends and get the chance to make some new ones. Overall it was a terrific weekend and we all enjoyed Queensland Raceway.
All 3 NC’s prepared by the Targa Racing team never missed a beat all weekend.
