Winton 400

Ford's first V8 Supercar win of 2014 came at the hands of Mark Winterbottom.  Frosty, in the Pepsi Max Ford, led HRT's James Courtney and supercheap's Tim Slade to the winners podium.

The win came after a succession of five pit lane speeding penalties which changed the race results again and again.  

Veteran Racing Legend, Russel Ingall, also known as "The Enforcer" launched a scathing attack at race officials after they penalised him for punting David Wall off the track in an overtaking manouver, which robbed Ingall of a podium finish.  

Ingall insists that his passing move was legal, but "instead of looking at it afterwards where they could have seen that, they made a call straight away.  They would have seen that the imbecile (Wall) tried to block.  But they decided there and then, and it was game over for me."  Ingall has been fined $10,000 for his outburst.

Tyrepower Tasmanian 400

It took Red Bull's Craig Lowndes just over an hour and fifteen minutes to win the 84 laps of the Tyrepower Tasmanian 400. Closely followed by team mate Jamie Whincup.  Lowndes had a Bad Luck day when he was pushed off the track by his team mate Jamie Whincup, as well as copping a technical infringement for taping up a safety hole in his driver's window.

Lowndes chose not to pit after the first lap, as did Whincup, leaving him at the front of the pack getting faster with every lap. Hot on his heals was Scott McLauchlin, James Courtney, Will Davison, Shane van Gisbergen & Jamie Whincup all tousling for a chance at the top spot.

Ultimately James Courtney in the HRT Holden squeezed out Erebus's Will Davison for third place on the podium.

2014 Australian Rolex Grand Prix Albert Park

Australia, we have been robbed of our first Aussie Formula 1 Home Podium finish due to a technicality!  Stewards disqualified Daniel Riccardo declaring that Car 3 exceeded the required fuel mass flow of 100kg/h. 

Red Bull Racing had trouble with the readings on the fuel flow sensor and decided that it was unreliable.  The team chose to run the car using their fuel flow model, without direction from the FIA. This is a violation of the procedure within TD/ 016­14.  Although the sensor showed a difference in readings between runs in P1, it remains the homologated and required sensor against which the team is obliged to measure their fuel flow, unless given permission by the FIA to do otherwise.

It doesn’t help when an already complicated sport has become even more convoluted and more tightly policed in 2014. The FIA were still rewriting the rulebook only days before practice began at Albert Park in Melbourne.

Engine failure put Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel out of the race

Ultimately, even though Daniel Riccardo stood on the Podium, the results were Nico Rosberg & McLaren took First Place, Kevin Magnussen’s Mercedes took second place and Jenson Button’s Ferrari in third place.

V8 Supercar MSS Security Challenge at Albert Park


After an exciting four days of thrills & spills, Scott McLaughlin and the Valvoline Racing team posted Volvo’s first V8 Supercar victory in the MSS Security Challenge at Albert Park. 

McLaughlin held off Craig Lowndes’ Red Bull Racing Holden to take the chequered flag, while Michael Caruso in the Norton Hornets Nissan came in third.

Shane van Gisbergen’s Tekno Holden, had dominated all weekend and was well and truly on track for a podium finish, having won the first three races, but was kept off the podium thanks to a broken front anti-rollbar in the (double points) Race 4.  Shane started the fourth race in top style, but it was soon evident that something wasn’t right, being taken by Coulthard on the first lap, as he then dropped further back in the field with each lap, finally finishing 14th.

Will Davison and Lee Holdsworth created Erebus history, finishing 6th and 10th in a carnage-filled Race Four at Albert Park.  It was the first dual top 10 for the team, which made the transition from Stone Brothers Racing to Erebus last year, switching to run Mercedes-Benz AMG E63s.

The weekend’s results put Craig Lowndes at the top of the 2014 Drivers Championship Leader board with 282 Points with Fabian Coulthard in second place with 230 Points and Shane van Gisbergen hot on his heels in third place with 221 Points!

Congratulations to Levi Clarke on winning the Australian Drifting Grand Prix Round 3 at Sydney Motorsport Park Easter Creek.

Levi & the EXEDY Drift Team S15 ended up Qualifying 2nd Place for the Competition on Sunday , putting him in an great position for a podium finish with his skill set.

Levi & Rob Whyte (the Raining Australian Drifting Champ) where up to next for the 1st place battle – after a super tight run with both drivers Rob made a slight mistake straightening giving him a 0 score. Levi just had to run a safe clean chase run to secure the win. But in true Levi Style he was all Over the reigning champ.

What a way to Start the 2014 Drift Season!
