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!
