RECAP

The second part of the Darwin double-header was another cracker weekend of racing and once again highlighted Jack Smith’s excellent recent race form – gaining multiple positions in each of the three races. The SCT Motor Sports Team struggled to find the right car balance through the weekend – something that was not uncommon throughout the field but Smith showed good resilience to fight hard despite the setup issues. 20th In race 16, 19th in race 17 and 23rd in the final race – a combined 10 places gained in the three races! It was another good showing from #4 to battle through adversity and also bring the car home unscathed – an achievement in itself!   

 

THE WORD FROM JACK

“The final race was disappointing on my behalf as i unfortunately didn’t feel like I drove very well. I went off a couple of times and didn’t get the best of starts so that’s something I’ll be working on. I’m still learning each round as we go. All up we had some decent races this weekend, just need to get qualifying right.

I enjoy Townsville and the track so I’m looking forward to heading there next week for another back to back event.”
