Bathurst really turned it up over the weekend and brought the racing entertainment we crave all year! We were captivated by the endless suspense of the V8 Supercars on the Sunday, but the real story for us; Carrera Cup and our very own Shane Smollen!
Achieving three Elite Class pole positions and victories, Shane dominated the Mt. Panorama, Bathurst round. Finishing the weekend with no damage and placing him 2nd and still in the running for the Elite Class Championship. All this coming down to the 2014 season finale in Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast a fortnight away.
“We were at the opposite end of the spectrum to a lot of the drivers this weekend, so I guess that’s just how things go. We were pretty focussed entering the round, the team did a great job preparing the car and we really had a mistake-free weekend,” said Smollen.
“It sets us up well to finish the year similar to last year; we had a clean sweep at the Gold Coast and we’ll certainly have that goal in mind again.”
Congratulations to Shane and the crew!
