In qualifying heats Oliver Mack would claim the TQ in impressive style. First setting a new track record in Q2 he then managed to break it again in Q4. Impressive Oli! With forecast rain causing the final to be reduced to 20-minutes, Oli was pulling away from the field but at 12-minutes stopped due to a strange engine failure. Dennis Weihert, who qualified 5th, was able to take over the lead with a flawless drive giving him and his IF18 the win. Also driving an IF18, Peter Poldvere joined Dennis on the podium taking 3rd place.

2017 AUSTRALIAN IC ONROAD NATIONALS

2017 AUSTRALIAN IC ONROAD NATIONALS

NOV 23-25 SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES

Sydney played host to the 2017 Australian IC Onroad National Championships with Infinity driver Luke Duthie making the trip from New Zealand to compete for 1:8 honours. Hosted by the Penrith District Nitro Racing Inc track, Luke quickly got himself and his car up to speed with the circuit, ending practice second fastest behind defending champion Jeff Hamon.

While qualifying wouldn’t start well, Q1 resulting in no result, Luke quickly put this DNS behind him by taking the TQ in the second of the six rounds. Posting second fastest times in Q3, 4 & 5, he capped off qualifying with another TQ run. Securing second on the grid for the 45-minute final, a strong race looked on the cards as he moved to the front of the pack after 5-minutes of racing. Able to hold that led for the first half of the race, unfortunately an engine issue would put an end to his chances of victory. Costing him 4 laps, he was able to get the car going again to recover 4th place running out time to make it onto the podium. A disappointing end result given the pace shown by Luke and his car, which in his own words was ’great and very enjoyable to drive’.

Thanks to Luke for his efforts and for representing Infinity strongly at the Australian Nationals.

New Zealand Nationals

18-19 February, 2017 - Cristchurch

The New Zealand Nationals for 2017 were once again held at Ruapuna raceway in Christchurch.
The meeting was rain affected and so there was only time for two qualifiers.
I managed to qualify in first position setting a new qualifying track record.
Jayden Duthie, also driving Infinity qualified in 4th.
 
In the final the car was perfect and I held the lead from start to finish. I opted to change tires halfway which proved to be a great strategy.
Jayden Duthie was running in third for most of the race but unfortunately ran into problems meaning an early retirement.
I’m really happy to deserve this title… Flag to flag victory always have a special “taste”; thanks to Infinity and all the people that helped me.
