Report by Barry
The second Superstocks Masters event attracted 24 entries from drivers aged from 40 years to 71 years, and they all showed an abundance of skills with fast controlled racing.
Only two local boys qualified for this one, 52B Regan O’Brien and 84B Mike McLachlan, and both matched the pace of the 22 visitors.
Happily, the electronic timing system was working fine again, but unfortunately the rain from Tuesday created problems with the track surface breaking up, all caused by the power and weight of the Superstocks rounding the turns.
However, this did not deter some fast and close racing from the drivers who drew grids for race 1 based on youngest off the front and oldest off the rear. 3NZ Scott Joblin was off pole and 95P Clive Elliott off grid 24, with 52B Regan O’Brien and 84B Mike McLachlin off grids 3 and 4.
25S Wayne Moss won race 1 after starting off grid 10, followed by 58P Peter Bengston off grid 11 for second and 282S Phill Ogle off grid 9 for third.
Race 2 saw the front row starters take off doing hot laps,, with 7H Shay Hambling winning from grid 2, 3NZ Scott Joblin was second from grid 13, and 19M Kerry Remnant was third from pole. Flyer 72P Simon Joblin finished 5th from grid 17.
Points after heat 2 had 3NZ Scott Joblin and 19M Kerry Remnant on 43, with 7H Shay Hambling, 282S Phil Ogle and 351R Paul Vasey all on 40, so the race for the title was all on for heat 3.
Heat 3 started with 95P Clive Elliott missing from pole, giving 97P Pat Westbury off grid 3 a flying start, and 58P Peter Bengston starting off grid 4 chasing hard to take the lead and the win. Second was Westbury, and 72P Simon Joblin home third after a classy drive from grid 16, and fastest lap of 17.90 seconds on lap 15.
Points were tallied and there were three two car ties – Rennant and Bengston on 63 points for 1st and 2nd, Simon Joblin and 351R Paul Vasey on 59 points for 3rd and 4th, plus Westbury and Ogle on 58 points for 5th and 6th.
The runoff for 1st and 2nd saw Bengston start fast with Remnant chasing hard, catching and spinning Bengston twice over the first two laps. Bengston then slowed to block, with Remnant reluctant to pass. Bengston had the brakes on and Remnant pushed until he decided the time was right to pass, which he executed brilliantly, backing off and gunning it, with Bengston trying to stop the now flying 19M car to the flag,.
The second runoff saw Simon Joblin start from pole from Vasey off the wall side. Joblin had a power start and took off, with Vasey trying hard to chase until he slowed on lap 4 to block. Joblin slowed and timed his run perfectly to power past Vasey on the town straight. Vasey had a last corner lunge at Joblin, but missed contact and became airborne briefly after hitting the ruts.
Fifth and sixth places were decided by a coin toss, with Westbury winning that one.
Final placings were: 1st – 19M Kerry Remnant 63 points, 2nd – 58P Peter Bengston 63, 3rd – 72P Simon Joblin 59, 4th – 351R Paul Vasey 59, 5th – 97R Pat Westbury 58, 6th – 282S Phil Ogle 58, 7th – 7H Shay Hambling 54, 8th – 3NZ Scott Joblin 52, 9th – 56P Kerry Podjursky 49, 10th – 52B Regan O’Brien 48, 11th – 116S Steve Haise 45, 12th – 66R Steve Hampton 41.
Thanks to Jake Baker for once again organising this annual event and to our 22 visitors for attending – all invitees by Jake.
Congratulations to Kerry Remnant, Peter Bengston (also last year’s winner) and Simon Joblin on your podiums. A great display from our older drivers who still have the goods.

A smaller field this week with 12 cars but as normal they all put on good fast racing on what was a very challenging track surface. The feature being taken out by the 17G Dylan MacGregor showing he has a good handle on his new car. The “dick of the nite” would have to go to 66B Tony Meechan with his steering wheel coming off causing him to do a little “tomy tippy”
