Have we all recovered from our Hoosier Tire Australia Victorian Title yet?
It was a hectic day with many weather inturuptions to go along with the largest car count that we’ve ever had in one race meet at the JQMV!
But, we got the meeting done...and it was a whole lot of fun!!
Firstly, a big shout out goes to all our racers, their crews and their supporters that stuck fat on the day. In trying conditions, everyone stayed keen for the contest and we saw some awesome racing throughout our heats and finals!
to all our feature winners...the new V1’s of their class:
Novice-V40 Leo Tancredi
Junior Restricted-V66 Jed Moorfoot
120 Open- V27 Jamie Balcombe
160 Senior- V6 Blake Balcombe
All these drivers drove hard on the day and deserved their spots on top of the podium.
Thanks to Will Lamb from Howe Automotive and Daylesford Dyno Tune, we’d also like to congratulate our other winners on the day....
Hard charger award: V28 Wil Orders
Drive of the day: V27 Jamie Balcombe
Hard luck award: V89 Kayde Mankey
We all know that it takes a lot of work behind the scenes to get a big event like this happening.
So, heres a generic blanket statement of thanks to everyone who chipped in along the way to turn the Vic Title into the event it was...because I’ll surely forget someone I’m this write up that really deserves a thanks!!
Everyone’s efforts are greatly appreciated. From track prep, to lawn mowing, to site prep and pack up etc....it all goes towards making the day run smoothly and as a club, we appreciate and need these people to do what they do so the kids can have fun and race!
More specifically, we’d like to thank:
Lynda & Michael Tancredi and Westcoast Concreting for the huge effort they put in from the very start to get this up and running. They have become our track sponsors and planned this day from a long way out. They have basically weatherproofed the pit area for days like Sunday and, among other things, got our little raceway looking like a proper, legitimate raceway! Cheers guys
Wade Aunger& Liam James Aunger for treating this day like it was The Classic or Chariots of Thunder!! You’re work in the lead up with driver profiles, all the way through to the commentary on Raceday and trophy presentations, was nothing short of amazing! I’m sure every kid felt the rock star vibes you were hoping for!... and, even if they didn’t quite appreciate it, I know all the grown ups did!
Freddie Baker and Mandy Searle from Max Dumesny Motorsport...the Hoosier brand was ever present throughout the day and we are extremely appreciative of your sponsorship, the prizes you provided and your overall support of our little raceway throughout this Hoosier Tire Australia Victorian Title for Junior Quarter Midgets.
Tyler Barton from Ash Media for capturing the video footage on the day.
Shane Sharrock from Rock Solid Productions for your photographic work on the day.
Lachlan Trotter for your work in painting/prepping the infield for the day.
John Humphries, Helen and Kylie for their work again in the canteen. Keeping the masses fed as per usual
So, that’s a wrap from me tonight. I think it turned out being a great event, despite the conditions, and we have definitely raised the bar for Title days in the future!! We hope all the kids had a ball!
Stay tuned for information on our upcoming race days as we approach them, but, for now it’s goodnight.
