Race Report by Barry
Due to a variety of reasons, Superstock numbers were down to 9 locals and one visitor, 15R Paul Mabey, but the racing was fast and entertaining.
Driver of the night was 46B Quinn Ryan, fresh back from the previous weekend’s 2019/20 North Island Champs at Auckland, where he was a title contender until blowing a right rear tyre. However, Ryan’s luck fared better last night, with two wins and one second, to add 28 Club points to his previous tally of 33 (total 61) and assume the leader’s role.
In race 1, Ryan started off Grid 10 and powered through to a good 2nd place behind 87B Thomas Stanaway who started off pole. 98B Quintin Butcher also had a good race, starting off grid 9 to finish 3rd behind the flying Ryan.
Race 2 saw Ryan again take control off grid 5 to finish 1st, with 46B Zach Glenny 2nd off grid 3 and 98B Quintin Butcher again 3rd off grid 4.
Race 3 (Feature) had Ryan off pole, and away he drove, but he encountered a minefield of blockers in the form of 52B Kairyn O’Brien and 29B Matt Demanser, who both made life difficult. Ryan survived several blocking attempts with clever power driving.  87B Thomas Stanaway was not so lucky and found the blocking tactics difficult to avoid, with his progress slowed considerably. O’Brien felt the force of Stanaway after being taken into the pit corner concrete quite hard. The eventual winner was 46B Quinn Ryan, 2nd after a good drive again was 47B Zach Glenny, with 84B Mike McLachlan driving his Tank for the first time this season, coming home 3rd. 87B Thomas Stanaway ended 4th.  The feature race was the most entertaining one for Superstock fans. Thanks to our solitary visitor 15R Paul Mabey, who travelled to test his car – our visitors are always welcome to race at Meeanee.
