With the Team Qld truck breaking down on the way to Victoria it was a mad rush to unload the cars on Saturday morning ready for a full day of practice.

We had a steering issue on Saturday & had to change the steering rack ready for Sunday’s Qualifying.

Qualifying went great & Nick Qualified 4th in a field of talented drivers from around Australia & some wicked builds in the cars they brought with them.

Top 32 Nick had to battle the twin turbo V8 of Adam Monk from Western Australia.

Nick's lead was flawless & took the advantage going into run number 2. On Adam's lead he under steered into the first turn losing a considerable amount of speed leaving Nick nowhere to go but into the back of Adam's Car & handing the win to Nick.

Top 16 was against Brent Gordon in his Supercharged V8 S15 also from W.A

Nick again put down a flawless run on his lead giving him the Advantage going into run number 2.

Unfortunately on Nick’s chase he got a little to close & on the last turn had to pull out of the drift or make hard contact with Brent.

This will put Nick in 9th for the Event & will strive even harder to get the points in the next round.

Some shots from Qualifying & Practice.
