Race Report by Barry
The Hawkes Bay Hawkeyes return match against Wellington Wildcats was the feature event for Superstocks in Race 2 on the night. What was supposed to be a “friendly” encounter turned out to be a race full of action with the lead changing many times, after some heavy hits meted out by both teams.
With 46B Quinn Ryan and 136B Maddie Wise having their turn in the lead, the eventual winner was a flying 89W Dale Robertson who had good support from his team-mates. With First Car across the line winning this event, the Wildcats made it two wins to nil over the Hawkeyes in their early season contests. But, the casualty list featured 41B Jason Long out for the night with gearbox issues, and 22W Richard Gaskin and 46W Ethan Levien out for the first all-in race with repairable damage. A dejected 84B Mike McLachlan in his new Tank was the Hawkeyes reserve car but fuel supply issues during the Teams warm-up laps put him out for the night.
Race 1 had 12 cars starting with 31P Andy McCabe off grid 2 taking off for the lead until a punctured tyre on lap 8 saw his retirement and the lead going to a fast charging 89W Dale Robertson who took the flag followed closely by 136B Maddie Wise and 87B Thomas Stanaway, with Stanaway posting the fastest lap of 17.5146 seconds in his chase.
Race 2 saw Stanaway starting from pole and he took off never to be headed by the fast charging Robertson all the way to the flag.  Stanaway also set the fastest lap in this race of 17.5493 seconds.
31P Andy McCabe started from grid 11, but had no chance of catching the two leaders and settled for third.
Race 3 was another winning triumph for Robertson who started from grid 8, but all eyes were on Stanaway who started from grid 17 and saw a very spirited drive to take second place, and another fastest lap of 17.7350 seconds.  Third place went to 7W Shane Davis who started from grid 10.
Driver of the night had to be 89W Dale Robertson with three wins including the Teams race and a second.
Credit also to 87B Thomas Stanaway with one win, one second and one third plus fastest lap in the three races, which resulted in a friendly reprimand from officials for being too fast! Our thanks to the Wellington Wildcats team who arrived with two spare cars and 19P Josh Dorn to give a starting tally of 18 cars for the night.  Unfortunately the Teams race resulted in cars missing from some of the later races, but a great night’s entertainment from Superstocks.

Race Report by Nick
A Great nights racing to support the burger king pro series with 16 TQ’s turning up to put on some awesome racing. Race one seeing the fast 66B Tony Meechan run away for the race win. Race 2 got a lot more interesting with the track being a little wet in areas seeing the TQ’s all giving each other some “Love” taps, however they all stayed on all four wheels and kept going much to everyone’s amazement! and seeing 14B Micheal Gurnett taking out the win. Points from the first 2 races sets their grid for the feature race. This saw young Ben Morrison 97A from Auckland off grid one, it was a good fast close race with 67A Kaleb Currie taking out the win followed close by the 66B of Tony Meechan with 97A Ben Morrison coming home in 3rd. Id like to thank all those that traveled to Meeanee this weekend you put on a great show and hope to see you all again soon!

Race Report by Barry
Superstocks are still lacking in numbers, awaiting some of the late starters.
However the seven locals and three visitors put on an entertaining night’s racing over their three heats.
Those starting for their first outing this season were 41B Jason Long, 87B Thomas Stanaway, 136B Maddie Wise and 9B Adam Groome and they certainly made their presence felt with some fast and confident racing – no sign of any winter cobwebs.
Two drivers making a great start to their season were Long and Stanaway who both executed lightening starts each race to assume leading positions early.
In races Two and Three both drivers battled for the leaders position after some clever passing manoeuvres from both drivers, with honours shared.
Stanaway has already assumed the leader of Club Points at 28 after scoring two firsts and one second, with Long close behind after one win, one second and one third place for 24 points.
31P Andy McCabe scored a good second place in Race One, but had difficulty passing a blocking 22B Zach Lawrence in Race two, with McCabe ending with a DNF.
Lawrence was spun out early in the race and decided to get in some blocking practice before the Hawkeyes first Teams Race next weekend at Te Marua against the Wellington Wildcats.
Of particular note was the pure class of the Superstocks with fast and hard racing and lap times being spread very evenly.
The fastest lap of 17.4895 seconds was recorded by Thomas Stanaway in Race One – the current lap record of 16.5120 seconds was set on the first night this season by 22B Zach Lawrence.
Thanks are extended to our three visitors, 31P Andy McCabe, 89R Calyn Clark and 96M Dylan Towler who helped boost our race numbers on this night – we look forward to your return.
We wish the Hawkeyes the very best of luck (and good tactics) for their next weekend’s outing at Te Marua – no Superstocks racing at Meeanee next weekend.

Race Report by Tracey
Great opening meeting for Saloons. Some awesome looking cars and we Welcome a new driver Dave Hunter, who has joined the Martin Racing Team. Not much luck for them in the first meeting of the season, with the 29B ending up on his lid in the first corner of the first race and Dave having fuel pump issues. The new 92B car for Kevin Martin also had a few teething problems but i’m sure he’ll be on fire next meeting. There was a great battle for 2nd place in the second race between the 27B of Josh Smith and 7B of Shane Laking with Shane managing to hold Josh off and take the 2nd. Some great driving from the 33B of Kareena Annan how also unfortunately had some opening meeting teething problems. Was great to see the two visitors of 42M Trent Amrien and 16G Hamish Moore giving our locals a run for there money. Have to mention the Awesome racing from George HIldred who not only managed to keep up with the pack but “bagged” some Club Points as well, great job George!

Good to see a Strong field of Hawkes Bay Streetstocks this Season and the Return of Wally True to the Streetstock Section, we had some good support from 8 Visiting Drivers which enjoyed a well prepared track and made for some Great Racing. Ben Yeoman and Brent Reddington were the best of the Bay cars, with Brent picking up a 2nd in the Feature race behind the 1NZ of Brendan Gooch.

Race Report by Nick
It was a great opening night supported by 6 out of town cars and along with 8 Bay cars, we soaw some very close and fast racing with lap times getting down to the low 15.8s the top 6 cars were split by only .4 of a second. As normal all cars presented to a very high standard to make the section proud of. Opening race and first drive in his new car Tony Meechen 66 was out on a flyer to win with a safe distance of 3 seconds (more to come from this guy in future meetings). Race 2 a jump start from the 26 of Chris Mahoney saw a rerun with the race being taken out by the 35a of Cieran Rose followed very close by Ryan Macgregor of Gisborne. The points from the first 2 races added together put the fastest off the front for the Feature race, this system allows for a fair chance at feature points for the season and not just a marble draw. There happened to be 3 tied for 1st and 3 tied for 4th. The feature was taken out by a flying Morgan Mchugh from Auckland and again .4 of a second behind him the 66 of Meechen. I must say the track was awesome for the night only slowing a little for the last race with 1 second covering the first 5 cars. This is close fast racing and looking at a great season with all visitors loving the track and the friendliness of the whole operation and wanting to race here as much as they can. From me the rep a Big Thanks to all out of town cars and see you next time!

Race Report by Barry
A good muster of cars appeared for the first night, with 7 locals and 11 visitors.
A
 great track surface produced fast racing over the three heats, with 22B Zach Lawrence clocking the fastest lap times in race 2 and 3 of 17.1274 and 16.5120 seconds – a new lap record for Superstocks.  16B Steve Jude has held the lap record of 16.6883 seconds since 27/04/13 in the Silver Bullet.   Well done Zach in his six cylinder powered car! The fastest car in race one was 147M Matt Nielsen with 17.588 seconds.
31P Andy McCabe was the Driver of the night with wins in Race 1 and 3 and second in Race 2, to take the Second Round trophy for the Quin Buildings Direct series, with 53 points.
Second was 87M David Elsworth in the ex Joe Faram 4B rocket, on 51 points, and in third place was 58P Peter Bengston on 43 points.
However, the Overall series was Won by Peter Bengston after carrying over 103 points from the previous night’s Palmerston North meeting to finish on 146 points.
Second overall was 87M David Elsworth with 51 points carry-over to total 133 points.
Third overall was 31P Andy McCabe with 32 points carry-over to total 85 points.
A good race meeting, with the benefits of keen winter preparations obvious to all.
The second race meeting on 3rd November should see an extra five Hawkes Bay Superstocks appearing.
