FIRST PLACE FROM 34TH IN RACE 2 AND SECOND PLACE IN RACE 1 OF THE 2K CUP AT TAUPO!
I had an awesome weekend in the 2K Cup with some great results in the MR2!
Qualifying: 3rd We were unsure where about in the 70 car field we’d be so we were stoked to qualify 3rd.
Race 1: 3rd to 2nd I got a good start and in the few opening laps, I managed to get up to 2nd overtaking around the outside of Turn 2. From then on I just raced my race and had a few good battles with Shane Geddes (though he was much quicker), ultimately finishing 2nd. Well done to Adam Carpenter in 3rd and Shane Geddes for taking the win!
Race 2: 34th to 1st Absolute mega race! I started second to last with 30 seconds worth of flag drops before me. I got in the zone and was able to stay cool and work my way up to first with about 10 minutes left in the race. Shane Geddes was right behind me and being close to 2 seconds faster than me a lap, I had to play defensive. I was stoked to hold him off for the win! Good work to Shane in second and Graham Ball in 3rd.
Big thanks to Gordon Jones for helping out this weekend and my sponsors: MacClures ITM, Fair go Car Loans, and Crème Insurance. Their support has been awesome!
I still need to get a bit quicker at opening the Champagne haha!
