Race Report by Barry
Superstocks were short on numbers due to recent away events, namely NZ Superstock Champs and World 240’s, both held this year at Rotorua. These events took their toll on cars and drivers, with some cars damaged and repaired, plus a number of Hawkeyes saving their cars and getting ready for next weekend’s Palmerston North Teams Champs. However, 9 locals and 3 visitors turned up to race, including three Hawkeyes, 52B Kairyn O’Brien (reserve Team driver), 84B Mike McLachlan and 98B Quintin Butcher.
Track conditions improved during the meeting and fast racing ensued.
In race 1, 88B Morgan Peach had a dream run in his newly acquired car to take out the win from Butcher and 26P Nic Davey. Peach started from grid 4, Butcher from grid 6 and Davey from grid 2.
In race 2, Peach started from pole and took off in the lead, but 52B Kairyn O’Brien off grid 2 chased and spun Peach out of contention when he could not fire up his engine. The race was stopped to rescue Peach, and he was out of the race. In the meantime, 98B Quintin Butcher shot through to take the lead and the win, and also recorded a fast 17.5511 second lap time on the last lap. 47B Zach Glenny came from grid 7 to finish a credible 3rd place – a good result for Glenny after receiving massive damage to his car last weekend in Rotorua, and resulting in some late nights replacing bent steelwork. A credit to his crew for their dedication. He also had a good result in race1 with 4th place.
Race 3 was another fast race, with visitor 26P Nic Davey flying in his Rees built car taking the win from grid 4 and recording fastest lap of 18.1486 seconds on lap 10. Second place went to 8B Clayton Hagen off pole and having a better night after receiving setup advice from the previous car owner Scott Hewson. Hagen also raced at Rotorua the previous night, Friday. Third place went to 36P Jake Baker (off grid 8 all night) who came to Meeanee to run in his new engine – it should be well run in now. After a 3 year layoff, 24B James Tollison knocked the cobwebs off his car with improving results of 6th, 5th and 4th placings.
