FVANSW DRIVERS KEEP THE 1600 TROPHY IN NSW!
MICHAEL GALE TAKES OUT SECOND IN THE 1200’S!
The Formula Vee Association of NSW continued its domination of National-level Formula Vee racing by not only taking out the top three 1600 places in the final round of the 2011 Clemenger International Freight Formula Vee Australian Series at Ipswich Raceway in late July, but also by taking out the top two places in the final 1600 Series pointscore, as well as second place in the 1200 Series pointscore.
Ben Porter took out the final round win in the 1600’s with one race win, one second placing, and two third placings. Daniel Reynolds took out second place for the round with two race wins and two fourth placings, while Ryan Simpson took out one race win, two second placings, and one fifth placing. Queensland local, but FVANSW top five driver, Tim Hamilton, took out seventh place for the round, followed by Michael Kinsella in ninth place for the round, with Leigh Porter in twelfth place for the round.
Next were Stephen Butcher, Lachlan Higgins, and Dylan Thomas, in 14th, 15th, and 16th placings for the round respectively. In the 1200 class, Michael Gale took out three fifths and one sixth placing, to give him fifth placing for the round in the 1200 class. And also Dylan Thomas and Stephen Butcher, but did Tim represent the FVAQ?
After the three rounds of the 2011 Clemenger International Freight Australian Formula Vee Series, which covered Bathurst, Phillip Island, and Ipswich Raceway, Ryan Simpson became the 2011 Clemenger International Freight Formula Vee Australian Series 1600 Champion. Ryan’s class in Formula Vee is as strong as ever! Congratulations to Ryan and his JRD team for their fine performance.
Daniel Reynolds took out second place in the 2011 Clemenger International Freight Australian Series, the second year running – a great performance! – while New Zealander Mat Stubbs, representing the FVAV, took out a great third place in the 2011 Clemenger International Freight Formula Vee Australian Series.
A great performance for New Zealand! In the 1200 class, the FVATAS’s Pip Welch took out the 1200 class Series Trophy, followed closely by our own Michael Gale, with Luke Fraser in third.
Congratulations to Pip, Michael, and Luke. Thanks go to all the Formula Vee drivers and pit crew who headed to Ipswich to participate in the final round of the Clemenger International Freight Australian Series. Special thank to Liz and Leigh Porter in getting the 2011 Clemenger International Freight Formula Vee Australian Series over the line!
