WELCOME TO round 5 Michael Smith - Series Director Welcome to the fifth round of the Shannons Nationals presented by Penrite at Queensland Raceway, and also the first round in Queensland for the season! This round is one of the biggest weekends yet on the Nationals calendar, featuring seven categories and caters for all lovers of motor sport, with open wheels to premier GT cars to production cars. Queensland Raceway is home to the Australian Production Car’s ‘fight into the night’ race, which will be quite the spectacle to see the cars race right into the sun setting in Ipswich on Saturday night. Luke Searle and Paul Morris are looking like the favourites to take out the race, after claiming their second win of the season at Sydney Motorsport Park. As well as the Production Cars’ feature, this round is also the third and final round of the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge’s Jim Richards Endurance Trophy, which currently sees Jaxon Evans and Hamish Hardeman tied for the lead! It will be great to see the pair fight it out right

to the end in the 30-lap feature. As the motor sport world talks up the hype around global GT racing, we are also joined by the Australian GT Trophy Series for their fourth round in their debut season, with Greg Taylor leading the way from Rob Smith. The Sports Sedans also return to the Nationals since their last round at Winton Raceway, with nine-time champion Tony Ricciardello taking charge in the Sports Sedans after previous points leader Jack Perkins had an unfortunate weekend at the Victorian circuit. As well as the tin-tops we are joined by the Sports Racers, Formula 3 and Formula Ford to add some Le Mans and open-wheel flavour to the Nationals. Spectators will be able to enjoy a large variety of motor sport this weekend, with the Nationals providing some of Australia’s best national series all in one place!

good grades and who needs to work harder this year for seven key Shannons Nationals’ categories.

Do you agree? Disagree? Let us know on social media via the comments section on our Facebook page or via the hashtag #ShannonsNats

porsche gt3 cup challenge ON THE WEB: www.gt3cupchallenge.com.au Needs a change: Dave Ryan has been hugely fast but hugely unlucky this year with either damage or mechanical dramas hurting his championship charge. There’s no doubt he is quick enough to race Elite leader Tim Miles when luck goes his way.

Key moment: The year so far: It’s been a tale of two classes in the GT3 Cup Challenge. At the pointy end, it’s been an enthralling fight between young-guns Hamish Hardeman and Jaxon Evans and the rapid development of Porsche junior driver, Jake Klarich. Then there’s the Elite class fight, which has exploded this year: Tim Miles has been consistently strong, but Dave Ryan, Sam Shahin, Newcomer Anthony Gilbertson and huge improver Jim Campbell have all taken trophies.

Biggest winner: Hard to call in a field with this many storylines but the job Jake Klarich has done is impressive. In his first full year of car racing his improvement has been staggering: taking track improvement into account, he was at least one second per lap quicker in the series’ second visit to Sydney Motorsport Park in July this year, compared to the earlier visit at Rennsport in April.

4 | THE RACING MAGAZINE

Jaxon Evans Race 2 DNF at Winton could be the key moment in the championship. It enabled Hamish Hardeman to pull a big lead in the series and in a championship this close, that could be absolutely critical and possibly slightly too hard to rebound from should Hardeman finish every race from here.

What the future holds: Eyes will be first on Queensland Raceway for what should be a cracking conclusion to the Jim Richards enduro trophy, then to Phillip Island where it is likely Evans and Hardeman will fight for the title.

The short summary: There are two guys doing all the winning, but their lastlap exchange in Sydney recently is proof these two will give no quarter. A thrilling showdown awaits!


CAMS Australian GT Trophy Series ON THE WEB: www.australiangt.com.au Winton (admittedly after a Safety Car cost Taylor track position) was a superb result for one of the sport’s good guys and great teams, in Grand Prix Mazda.

Needs a change: The brief, fleeting arrival of the Dodge Viper GT3 at Sandown was a tease! We want more of the big V10. It might be outclassed in the main classes now but GT Trophy is a perfect place for the thundering US car. More screaming Ferrari V8’s too, please!

The year so far: Greg Taylor has been impressive in his MPC-run Audi R8 LMS Ultra, while guys like Matt Turnbull (Lamborghini) and the MARC cars keep nipping at his heels. This is a growing category so it’s still establishing itself but a majority of the rounds so far have provided plenty of things to discuss.

Biggest winner Whilst it’s hard to go past the performance of Taylor’s Audi, it’s great to see the MARC Cars competitive on an outright level. This all-Aussie Adventure has been a big factor in GT racing lately and the GT Trophy suits them to the core. Jake Camilleri’s outright win at

What the future holds: It’s hard to back anyone else other than Greg Taylor for this title but what will be interesting is to see how many more of the older-spec GT3 vehicles filter down into the Trophy series. It’s good bang-for-buck in terms of track time and exposure so hopefully we see more GT3Rs, 430GT3s and the like in the series. And the Viper. Definitely the Viper.

The short summary: Building blocks this year for Australia’s third-tier GT category but it’s a promising start and will get better once the grids start to build towards 18-20 cats.

year with an approach and attitude belying his youth. Shields could be an upset race winner later this year.

Needs a change:

The year so far: Like many racing series, the story on paper doesn’t quite tell the full story of how this year’s Australian Formula 3 series has played out – but it’s hard to argue when the winners list has Tim Macrow on 10 and Chris Anthony on two. Double champion Macrow has been dominant and his one-lap and cold-tyre race pace has been the difference. When Anthony and his car are switched on, he’s probably fractionally faster (as shown at Winton) but stringing a consistent weekend together hasn’t been easy.

Biggest winner: There’s two: Macrow remains as fast, aggressive and committed as ever but young-gun Cameron Shields probably is the underrated story here. Much like the advancement of Jake Klarich in the Porsche’s, the young man from Toowoomba has improved dramatically this

Roland Legge. On raw speed it would be reasonable to suggest ‘Lightning’, as his team calls him, could be the quickest guy on the grid but his storming drives have been blighted by mechanical dramas and unforced errors. When it all comes together he will be hard to beat as he and the car are fast enough. Also, Chris Anthony: the only way he’s going to consistently beat Tim Macrow is by getting off the line better: starts (or lack thereof) probably cost him two wins at Winton.

What the future holds: QR’s round will be key: on home turf for the Gilmour team Anthony and Shields could be hard to beat. One bad round for Macrow will swing the momentum and then the remainder of the year is on tracks we’ve already visited once so there won’t be an advantage to either party. Ipswich will be critical for Anthony’s title hopes.

The short summary: The pressure is on the pursuers and Macrow is old and wise enough to deal with it, but a home win for Gilmour Racing in Queensland could swing the story to their advantage.

kerrick sports sedan series ON THE WEB: www.sportssedans.com.au Needs a change: Aside from Perkins’ failed components from Winton? It’s hard to say in a field so diverse and open but it would be fair to say that the biggest addition to the year would be welcoming back the likes of David Wall (second at Round 1), five-time champ Kerry Bailey and another young-gun in Dean Randle’s Kerrick Saab ... or perhaps Dean himself!

The year so far: Swings and roundabouts; Jack Perkins dominated at Round 1 (Sandown), won the first race at Round 2 (Winton) and then twice failed to finish races to end his winning streak at an unlucky 13 wins. This of course, handed the title lead and all the momentum to ‘ol ninetime champ Tony Ricciardello, who now leads Perkins by 90 points ahead of the third round at Queensland Raceway.

Biggest winner: Consistency is king and if you can finish every race across a Sports Sedan season you’re probably going to be in contention for a title – that’s why Tony Ricciardello is now on top of the standings. Perhaps more impressively (after all, having Tony on top isn’t new) Stuart Inwood sits second outright in his Corvette and Michael Robinson fourth in his Monaro, just two points behind Perkins, thanks to racking up the finishes.

What the future holds: QR will be critical: it’s fair to say the Audi has the outright speed advantage over the Alfa now but Ipswich has always been a great track for Ricciardello so it should be a great fight on the paperclip. It looks likely that while Ricciardello holds the lead, the final three rounds will feature a determined Jack Perkins hauling in the margin to set up a winner-take-all finale at Sydney later this year. The return of the Tamasi boys from Round 3 also adds more depth to a good field.

The short summary: There has been plenty of incredible Audi versus Alfa fights over the years and the scriptwriters indicate there’ll be more of them before this year is done. He may be leading, but if Tony wants title number 10, he’s going to have to work hard for it.

Australian Production Car Series ON THE WEB: www.AUSTRALIANPRODUCTIONCARS.com.au Lauren Gray Motorsport Toyota Echo duo of Ellexandra Best and Liam Thompson, who have two wins from three races to their credit in the smallest car in the field.

Needs a change:

The year so far: If you’re not in a BMW, it’s been rough going in the revamped Australian Production Car Series. Luke Searle and his mate Paul Morris have done a majority of the winning this year, taking the 4 Hour at Phillip Island and the second of two 250km races in Sydney. Meanwhile, Beric Lynton and Tim Leahey did the business in the first Sydney sprint, so it’s fair to say the Bavarians have done the business so far.

Biggest winner: Clearly it’s the consistent performance of the Roadchill Express BMW. They’ve been stalwarts of the sport, the Searle’s, through Super Touring and now into Production Cars so it’s been great to see them get the success for their persistence. A tip of the hat also to the

6 | THE RACING MAGAZINE

When the Audi TTs get it all together, they are going to be very, very tough to beat – it just hasn’t quite stacked up yet for Mark Eddy and the Alfords. While it’s great to see the Karadimas Falcon out there and going better than ever … we need more Aussie muscle before it’s too late!

What the future holds: All anyone could talk about at the end of the Sydney round that featured some inadvertent twilight running as the races ran into the Sydney dusk – was the proper night racing affair that is Queensland’s ‘Fight in the Night’. Now a staple of the season, the night race at QR has never-ever failed in the excitement stakes and always produces plenty of drama and head scratching in race control!

The short summary: BMW drivers happy no matter the class. Class battles ongoing and if you’re in a Renault, Toyota 86 or Toyota Echo you’re probably happy.


Australian Formula Ford Series ON THE WEB: WWW.formulaford.org.au Needs a change: The return to the Nationals at Round 3 will be great for Formula Ford as running with the state round in New South Wales saw it drop off the radar a little, but otherwise it’s hard to argue with what it has provided in terms of competition after just two rounds this year.

What the future holds: The year so far: Lots of change in Formula Ford this year thanks to a new calendar, a new tyre and an almost completely new driving roster – yet the competition remains the same breathtaking and thrilling kind of motor racing we’ve come to love over the decades. Jayden Ojeda leads the standings but is only five points ahead of Leanne Tander, who entering the half-way point to the series has been superb (as expected, if we’re honest) in her switch to Sonic.

Biggest winner: Anyone who watched the final race at Sandown’s season opener would remember it was completely, utterly and brilliantly bonkers. That and the emergence of new talent like Ojeda, Boys, Vidau and Gibbons who have all been strong in places.

The prospect of a bumper grid at QR for starters, not to mention the ongoing and rather compelling storyline of Leanne Tander taking on the youth around her in the championship fight. It’s not that Leanne is old (nor would we ever suggest that), but the tale of a mother of two taking on some 15 year olds for the championship is still pretty remarkable stuff. QR is also a paradise for slipstreaming and four-wide racing in Formula Ford, too, so hold your breath..

The short summary: He or she who is third is first: and he or she who is first may be third. But may also be fifth … or sixth. Such is the Formula Ford racing way!

Australian sports racer Series ON THE WEB: www.sportsracer.com.au Needs a change: Defending champion Mark Laucke sits only 10th in the championship after two rounds and will need things to turn around quickly if he’s going to challenge for a second title this year.

What the future holds:

The year so far: Sports Racer competition is a complete madhouse and that is its charm. There’s always so much going on at every single point of the circuit, and it’s hard to know where on earth to look. Roger I’Anson leads the standings ahead of Jason Makris and Radical racer Peter Johnston, but there really isn’t much in it. I’Anson will be hard to catch from here (if his newfound luck holds out) but otherwise, throw a blanket over ‘em.

Biggest winner:

Last year at Queensland Raceway the Sports Racers produced perhaps the best final lap in the history of the Shannons Nationals, and it was one of about four thrillers the series provided last year. QR suits the F1000 cars perhaps more than any other track, so watch for more thrills and spills there.

The short summary: Wests are 1-2, Radicals 3-4 and F1000 cars 5-6 in this year’s outright championship and it’s that diversity that makes the Sports Racer series one of the most enjoyable series to watch. Variety, if you’ll pardon the cliché’, really is the spice of life here.

Roger I’Anson. He’s been the fastest bloke in Sports Racer competition for years, but he had the worst luck of any driver in the last two seasons. His rebound at Winton where he dominated the weekend and swept to the championship lead was sensational.

ADVERTORIAL

fuelling the championships It might not be a sexy subject, but one Aussie company is proudly making the racing wheels go around thanks to a fire for all things fuel. WORDS: Richard Craill IMAGES: RaceFuels Archive

“FUEL,” says Mark Tierney, a director of Melbourne-based motorsport staple Race Fuels, “Is not a sexy part of going motor racing.” And that’s probably the truth. Despite distributing the product that quite literally makes the internalcombustion wheels go round, it’s hard to get people excited about their racing fuels. You put it in the tank and it makes the car go: as a consumable, it doesn’t change the outcome of a race for a spectator in the same way, say, a soft tyre does when compared to a hard. To most, it’s just a useable commodity that costs more money the higher the Octane number is. Naturally Tierney, a long time racer who now helms a business that distributes nearly one million litres of fuel around every state in Australia per year, doesn’t share that opinion. Race Fuels was founded in 2003 and started distributing ELF racing fuels and products in Melbourne and Tasmania.

10 | THE RACING MAGAZINE

“It started with me dropping a few drums down to Sandown or Phillip Island in the back of a BA Falcon Ute – we later added a box trailer – on Friday morning and then we were done for the weekend,” Tierney remembers. Today the business is the primary supplier of fuel to the V8 Supercars, Shannons Nationals, Australian GT, Bathurst’s 12 and 6 hour races and a host of other events. It makes for a busier schedule than days gone by. “Across the year we would be supplying product to several hundred people each weekend, and that’s before you take into account needing to deliver product to V8 Supercars and the Shannons Nationals. They all operate very professionally and expect a level of service that’s a bit more than dropping off the fuel drum and saying ‘seeya’. “The business is as much about providing that service and support to teams and drivers as it is actually

pumping fuel at race tracks.” The Race Fuels organisation is certainly larger than a Ford Ute and a trailer these days. An enormous B-Double transporter carries the fuel across the country with multiple staff on hand to ensure the product is properly and promptly distributed at each round. RaceFuels does not request pre-bookings, they believe it is their role to carry enough to cover all contingencies. “We have four types of fuel that we supply and we carry enough of each to make sure everyone that’s going to be at the race meeting is catered for, but we try to do more than that too,” Tierney explains. “At a lot of events like the Kuhmo V8 rounds, for instance, they’re only allowed to have 60 litres of fuel in the garage at a time so part of it is making sure that everyone is resupplied across the weekend. We go to them instead of them coming to us so that customer service side of things is very important.


“It’s a logistical challenge to say the least, the start of the year in particular. We’ve already been to the Bathurst 12 hour and Clipsal 500 in Adelaide, then back to Melbourne for the Grand Prix. Then it’s a quick turnaround to make sure we’re in Bathurst on the Thursday for the 6-hour and then we head back down to Sandown for the first Shannons Nationals event of 2016. “They all need fuel and in that month we’re supplying more than 1000 competitors directly. “We even go to the test days and spend a lot of time predicting who is testing where so we can plan our supply. It is not uncommon for RaceFuels to attend multiple circuits on the same day”. But wait, there’s more. In this day and age when you need to sign a waiver before you go to the bathroom, there’s a significant safety effort around the Race Fuels business to the point where it’s unlikely people could go racing without the procedures and standards companies like Race Fuels provide. Sean Scott, RaceFuels’ operations manager, has a full time job preparing the compliance paperwork ahead of a race meeting. “It’s a fact of life that the events wouldn’t get a permit unless they had a fuel management plan in place,” Tierney says. “There’s so many regulations and OH&S issues surrounding the control of dangerous goods in quantities that it’s not feasible for people to bring their own fuel to the track, especially at major events, any more. You just wouldn’t get a permit, so our role is to take that issue out of the equation and make sure it’s safe and we’re conscious of taking away everything we bring in.” Hailing from a passionate racing family, Tierney believes it’s critical that the enjoyment of the sport has to be number one in operating the business. “I think you have to be very fond of it to be involved at the level we are,” he says. “We try and go above and beyond to help people out. We’ve had several Melbourne teams without space in their transporter come to us and go ‘hey, could you take a drum back to Melbourne for us?’ and we’ll do it and drop it at their workshop. It’s no problem. “It’s all part of what we do and hopefully it’s making it better for everyone. We certainly get a buzz out of it.”

round 5 QUEENSLAND RACEWAY, QLD

AUSTRALIAN sports racer SERIES ON THE WEB: www.SPORTSRACER.COM.AU

In the class battles, Peter Johnston (#17 PJS Air Radical) ensured his championship lead in the Radical standings remained intact by winning the round and taking class race wins in races one and two. Terry Peovitis took the F1000 class round honours with class victories in races one and two in the #4 Orlando Phoenix F1000 on what was his son Orlando’s sixth birthday, while Adam Cranston took the SR2 division round honours with class wins in races two and three in his #56 West.

Roger I’Anson leads the way to Queensland Raceway for the Australian Sports Racer Series, fresh from clean sweeping Round 2 of the 2016 season at Winton Motor Raceway. In his #14 Ken’s Exhaust Systems/Riverside Racing West, I’Anson topped all three sessions of practice, took the top spot in qualifying, won all three races and reset the race lap record to 1:19.0364 (after running under the record in both practice and qualifying) on his way to the Round 2 victory.

A field of 15 Sports Racers will take to Queensland Raceway for their third round of the year, including reigning champion Mark Laucke and current championship leaders I’Anson (outright), John-Paul Drake (SR2), Terry Peovitis (F1000) and Peter Johnston (Radical). At last year’s Queensland Raceway round, the F1000s truly shone with Joshua Townsend taking out the round win his DSR Downunder F1000 while then-F1000 racer (now West pilot) Adam Cranston took over the outright title lead thanks to his consistent performances.

kerrick sports sedan series ON THE WEB: www.sportssedans.com.au previous race at Winton Motor Raceway in June. Nine-time champion Tony Ricciardello currently leads the way in the series taking wins at Winton, with Stuart Inwood sitting in second. Jack Perkins had an up-and-down, taking the win from pole and setting the new lap record in Race 1, to then failing to finish the final two races – handing the lead of the series to Ricciardello. Michael Robertson sits in fourth, with David Wall in fifth.

The Kerrick Sports Sedans are arguably the most dynamic and exciting motor racing category in the county – with the noise and serious horsepower from these winged and wild racers being an awe inspiring spectacle.

These cars are built and raced by an enthusiastic group of devotees chasing the ultimate power-to-weight performance and share a special place in Australian motor racing heritage.
