Qualifying and Race One Results – VRRC at Winton
Photos: Russell Colvin Consistently good results in some pretty mixed conditions. That's the end of day one of the Victorian Road Racing Championships here at Winton. The weather is extremely average, but the team have been absolutely exceptional. All the riders and their crews are performing consistently above and beyond. The conditions are tough and we have to take it as it comes. It can (and did) lead to some crashes but that's to be expected, we'll just keep chipping away at it tomorrow.
Massive shoutout to Harley Side! The Sauce has won his first VRRC race. Superbike Results Brad Shaw had a great start, got the holeshot and was feeling really good on the bike. Unfortunately that sweeper caught him out on lap two. The rear came around and he slid impressively long way into the infield. Rider and bike are okay, both just needed a pressure wash.
Jake Drew brought it home in a solid P4. He's been chipping away at the weekend with a consistently measured and professional approach to his work. Slow and steady progress and he'll be back up the front in no time.
Leeroy had an off midway through the race. Rider and bike are fine and they'll be back at it tomorrow, with a vengeance no doubt. Supersport Results The boys locked out the first four spots on the grid so it was always going to be a good one. After an early incident, the race was restarted and a five lap dash would be all Saucey needed for his first VRRC race win. It was a really solid second for Largey who was riding the spare bike after a big, dirty crash in qualifying. And another shoutout for a fantastic effort by Will who came home in third. Luke Sanders was pushing hard with the other three boys for a race win but a little mistake in tricky conditions cost him big. After his off, P8 was all that could be salvaged.
And well done to Brendan Wilson who wrapped up fourth position on a Race Center spec bike as well. Supersport 300 Results Boner had a really solid qualifying and race. He's steadily improving and dropping those lap times every time he crosses the line, which is easier said than done in tough conditions.
