TCRC KICKS OFF THIS WEEKEND

By TCRC

The opening round of the 2022 TCRC kicks off on the weekend of 5/6 March with a big two-day meeting.  Plenty of track time for all over three days if you include Friday practice (the latter with a modest fee to cover the ambulance cost).

There are good numbers in all categories – but some classes are larger than others! We will see some new faces, some faces we’ve not seen for a while, and some familiar faces in new cars.

Word on the street is that a couple of lap records might be threatened – that should be entertaining.

After the Saturday track activity the HSCC will conduct a special awards ceremony, followed by a barby and refreshments. The event will be a presentation of Championship trophies to category winners in the 2021 TCRC.  All welcome!

REPEAT VICTORY FOR TOOL RACING IN BASKERVILLE 1000

By Baskerville 1000

The final Baskerville 1000 event for 2021 held on Saturday 27 November was a repeat victory for the TOOL Racing boys in the mighty RS500 Corolla.

A 50-point penalty for a driving-time infringement lost the team the opportunity to set a new benchmark record but they still had a big enough lead to hang on to the win, amassing 945 points after their penalty.

Strong all day and claiming second with 930 points accumulated was the Storm racing Hyundai from the north.   After a close battle all day with the 13 Cabs Excel, the blokes in the Powerstroke Automotive Falcon AU scooted away to claim third with 870 points.

See the B1000 results page for full results.

Several of the many volunteer officials who ran the endurance event were fortunate to win $50 cash vouchers generously donated by Mike Dillon from  Bridgestone Select Launceston.

One lucky official also picked up a magnificent prize, also donated by Mike Dillon – a night’s accommodation at the magnificent, absolute waterfront Tamar Boathouse near Kayena.
