12 Aug MONOCHROME GT4 AUSTRALIA RACERS READY TO FIGHT IN THE NIGHT
Following the conclusion of race one on Friday evening at Queensland Raceway, Monochrome GT4 Australia competitors are now preparing to take part in the infamous Fight in the Night for the very first time.
A long-standing feature of the Mobil 1 Australian Production Cars, the Fight in the Night will for the first time also feature Monochrome GT4 Australia this year, with the categories running alongside each other during the 2023 season.
Leading the way to the big Fight as part of round three of the 2023 Monochrome GT4 Australia season this evening is the polesitter and race one winning #56 Prestige Connex Porsche Cayman 718 of Shane Smollen and Lachlan Mineef.
Mineef took the Porsche across the finish line last night in his category debut, after taking over from title leader Smollen during the race’s mandatory pit stop.
Second across the line was Steve Jukes in the #26 Verv Racing BMW F82 M4, while Tony Quinn in the #101 Queensland Raceway Porsche Cayman 718 took out the third stop on the race podium.
Rounding out the top five for Monochrome GT4 Australia were Mark Grifith and Nash Morris in the #19 Daimler Trucks Brisbane Mercedes AMG GT, and Karl Begg in his new #40 Monochrome GT4 Australia McLearen 570S.
Sixth for GT4 Australia was category debutant Todd O’Brien in the #33 Elev8 Motorsports Ginetta G55 he is sharing this weekend with Antonio Basile, while Chris Pappas in the #8 Cali Beach/Gee Up McLaren 570S had a tail of woe following radiator damage which forced him to the pits from the lead of the race.
Round three of the 2023 Monochrome GT4 Australia season continues today at Queensland Raceway, with the two hour Fight in the Night at 5.55pm ahead of a final one-hour race on Sunday morning.
