17 Jun MONOCHROME GT4 AUSTRALIA TURNS HEADS IN SYDNEY
The Monochrome GT4 Australia competitors turned plenty of heads at Sydney Motorsport Park today, as they enjoyed the first two of four one-hour races for the second round of their 2023 season today.
Shane Smollen and Justin Ruggier edged out the Mark Griffith and Nash Morris entry to take twin race victories in the #56 Prestige Connex Porsche Cayman, after top qualifying on Friday.
Second in both race one and race two was the #19 Daimler Trucks Brisbane Mercedes AMG GT of Mark Griffith and Nash Morris, with Griffith steering in race one and Nash Morris taking the wheel for race two, which was run under lights this evening.
Third place was split between Renee Gracie and her #181 OnlyFans Ginetta G55 in race one and Paul Morris in race two in the #140 Monochrome GT4 Australia Mercedes AMG GT, which Paul Morris is sharing with car owner, Karl Begg, this weekend.
Steve Jukes was fourth in both race one and two in the #26 Verv Racing BMW F82 M4. Fifth went to Karl Begg in race one and Gracie in race two. Tony Quinn was sixth in both races aboard the #101 Queensland Raceway Porsche Cayman, with the Scotsman hit with a five second penalty in race one for jumping the start.
While the racing was relatively trouble free for the Monochrome GT4 Australia field across today’s two hours of running, Jukes and Gracie did draw attention with a spin while battling for position at the half-way point of race two. However, both were able to recover and resume racing to the flag.
The third and final day of round two of Monochrome GT4 Australia action continues at Sydney Motorsport Park on Sunday the 18th of June, with two one-hour races at 10.35am and 3.50pm to be broadcast on 7Plus and Speedcafe.tv.
