10 Feb Super Sandown Saturday has drawn to a close
A busy Saturday at Sandown Raceway for Meguiar’s Australian Production Cars has now drawn to a close. The three 30-minute races delivered a number of great battles amid track temperatures in the low to mid 40sC, setting the stage for the fourth and final race tomorrow (Sunday, 11 February).
In race three, it was Cameron Crick converting a pole position to take the outright and Class X win in the #118 DA Campbell Transport BMW M2 he’s sharing with Dean Campbell, giving the #118 entry its second outright and class win for the weekend so far. Jayden Ojeda (#21 Secure Wealth Advisers BMW M4 ) was next across the line in outright and Class X second, followed by Grant Sherrin in the #27 Sherrin Rentals BMW F82 M4 in outright and Class X third.
Iain Sherrin (#72 Sherrin Rentals BMW F82 M4 – 4th outright and 4th for X), and Nathan Callaghan (#64 Cachet Homes Chevrolet Camaro SS – 5th outright and 1st for A2) rounded out the top five.
Next across the line in sixth through ninth were Matthew Holt (#65 Cavanagh Electrics HSV Clubsport – 6th outright and 2nd for A2), Paul Buccini (#71 Team Buccini Racing BMW M140i – 7th Outright and 1st for A1), Chris Sutton (#321 321 Motorsport Mitsubishi Evo X – 8th outright and 2nd for A1), and Rob Jarvis (#70 TOA57D Motorsport VW Polo GTi – 9th outright and 1st for C).
B2’s Ben Gersekowski struck trouble late in the race in the #38 KCK Lubricants / Vics Timber BMW M3. Vibration from a tyre flat spot incurred during lap 1 caused him to slow on the track before pulling into the pits and was unable to complete the race.
It was a drag race into turn one between Crick and G. Sherrin to start the race, with Crick getting the upper hand over the #27 Sherrin Rentals BMW F82 M4 driver, before Ojeda then moved into second place a lap later. The pair quickly skipped away from the pack before a battle began to brew between Crick and Ojeda, with Ojeda looking to capitalise on any small error by Crick to make a move. Ojeda’s efforts would go unrewarded with Crick ultimately leading the way from lights to flag.
Race four will be held at 1.10pm AEDT on Sunday, 11 February and will be streamed live on 7plus.
