The Bull Ring - Shell Harbour

Recommended Posts

   Thanks Benno for posting up the race results and statistics. Another great roll up of drivers tonight. We were pleased to have 19 blokes ready to race . First up we had our Touring Car Masters breakout class . Jim has dominated with two wins under his belt out of two races . He decided to go old school tonight running his beautiful FJ Holden . Once again he was quick and straight down on the times. But for the first time he got a breakout and the crowed went wild 😜. It was a very tight race and you never know until the last lap of the last heat what’s the outcome is . Pagey finally got it sorted with a very close win over Cam with Benno just as close for third . Ben was saying when you look in the stats the average time and median lap of at least the top 6 drivers was a 10th of a sec. Great stuff 

    Dunlop Porsche series was next race away . Jules looked awesome from the moment his new Benno paint job Momo hit the track . Very fast and consistent with a well over due win .It will be great to have Jules back in the super series next week and with his overall lap score he will be a threat . Awesome Jules 👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Jamie was in for second and was quick all night . Gregg was in for another podium finish for third . Good drives through the field with a couple of blokes with a few issues like Mick gearing caught in interior . That would have made a close run at a podium . Also Vito showed plenty of speed once he arrived. 

   Super series Porsche was last for the night . A few fellas tuning there game and cars for the main event . Plenty of speed with fast laps throughout the field . Cam back to near his best getting back onto the top step . Pagey in for a second place and JJ showing his speed after a win in Dunlop series last week for a quality third place . 

      Thanks for the help in getting racing underway a bit earlier. Remember if you are concerned about arrival times, simple message and we will adjust the start order. 

    Thanks for the help with scrutineers changes .I will pick a random member each week to check my cars . 

    We should have the new computer upgrade by next week. So the upgrades continue to happen around the track . I appreciate everyone’s efforts with the soft paint in pit area this week and it still looks great. Team Nissan still can’t get the smiles of there faces with the extra room . 🧐😂 Thanks for the support and do it all again next Thursday.

Great night again at the Bull Ring . Thanks for everyone being ready to race at 7.30pm. We had our first run with new computer,many thanks to Ben and Ron. We loaded the latest version of race program and we started with some sound issues putting start back slightly. Anyway we got into racing with the touring car master breakout first . JJ was the winner with a great run in his Alfa. Ben with a solid second just behind with the old master Jim back on the podium with third . 

   The Dunlop series is hard to pick a winner at the moment with cars and drivers very even . It turned out to be a master and his apprentice duel . Jim and Troy split by nothing heat after heat . Awesome race right till the end . Troy keeping Jim in Dunlop for another week with a great drive for first . Jim for second and well done to Vito for a fast third place. It will be interesting next week with the dueling umbilical brothers Troy and Jules in the Super class together. What can possibly go wrong . 🙄🙈 

    Super Porsche class was very , very fast. One mistake means you are off the podium basically. Jules showed good speed again after his win in Dunlop last week . Chris was also on the pace with a fast drive. Belly was fast also until he found some track garbage under the chassis causing him trouble. But it was Benno this week who was extremely quick . He had a great run to first place . Cam was just behind him keeping the fight going until the last heat . Pagey had a messy race but managed to hang in for a surprising third place .

     We had a couple of new drivers with us also .Ron down from 1/32 world learning the track and drove really well . Thanks again for the assistance with computer Ron . 

    We also had Col join us for a practice session early on . He picked up the controller and track well . A old local racer who we hope will join in the fun. 

    We had a few away tonight and we hope to see them back soon . 

   Thanks again for the support and do it all again next week.

 

Cheers Pagey

Our great numbers continue with 21 racers last night . It was great to have Brooksy and Gregg back this week . This was our last run for the month with the two current classes. Touring car Masters breakout and  Slotworx Porsche. The touring car Masters was as usual a challenge to stay away from the 8.2 sec lap . Plenty finding the shoot gun noise indicator of a breakout. Jim the old master showing his skill level again with his third victory for the month. Awesome Job Jim . 🧐👏🏻👏🏻 Second was Brooksy and Gregg in for third place . Gregg was definitely disappointed thinking he was in for the win . 5 blokes finishing on 110 laps it was certainly close . 

     Dunlop Porsche was as always very entertaining and exciting . Serge was back from holiday and look very sharp from the green light . Clinton was quick also with new comer Ron showing he is dialing in nicely. Rod was also quick at times . It came down to a very close finish . Clinton and Serge side by side for the win in the last bracket. Close and clean until in the final corner on the last lap

Clinton binned it . 🧐😳 Serge getting the win and Clinton second . Gregg again in for another podium but was again upset with his luck . It was a  Awesome race . 

     Super series was going to be a ripper with all the big dogs in other than Brooksy choosing to commentate instead. The pace was read hot . Everyone pushing as hard as they could . Some tripping over the edge and some staying on the max limits. Benno was the best again with another win following on from last weeks top step . Pagey in for second just over Jules with a great drive for third . I really enjoyed the last bracket next to Jules . We raced side by side at our limits and stayed clean . Fantastic racing and a highlight for me . 

    Our live stream worked fine this week . Thanks to Benno , Ron and my son Matt for sorting out the computer. Thanks to Brooksy for running the night in race control and commentary. We still have another camera to come on line . Plus some more polish and getting used to operation of things but we are getting closer . 

   Sorry I didn’t get photos of the podium for touring masters as I was doing track repairs . Sorry 

       Thanks for the great support. Good luck to Brooksy and Rod as they travel to SA race meet next week . Have fun boys . 

 

Cheers Pagey

   Thanks Benno for the race results and race director roll this week. We have a few away in Adelaide for this weekends race meeting. Good luck to them and especially Brooksy as race director. We still had a solid 16 racers on the night . It was our first week of the two new classes for the month. Scaleauto with a return with the old and new classes combined but classified differently. The old girl class had Cam in first , great drive by Belly for second and old master Jim for third . New class was myself Pagey for a win with Ben for second and Chris for third . Slotworx V8 super cars were a welcome return. Dunlop series first up was Clinton as the star taking a fantastic win . JJ with some car issues fought back with a good drive for second just over mate Jamie back on the podium. Super class was going to be red hot as always. Pagey in for the double win over Ben again for second and Serg with a awesome drive for third . Great effort after his classic win last week in Dunlop showing that there is nothing between the two groups again . 

  No racing at the Bull Ring next week as Ben and myself travel North to take part in the very fast and competitive Qld Enduro series . Looking forward to plenty of fun and a great weekend. 

    Thanks to Jules and Vito for helping out on the mic on our live stream telecast. Plenty of fun and laughs . Try tuning in to the telecast Slotstream on Facebook next Sunday for the race from River City Raceway . Thanks for all the support st the track and via our followers on Facebook etc . 

 

Cheers Pagey

    Heaps of fun again at the BullRing. Great to have our travelling racers back with success in two different states. We had 18 racers through the door ready to hit it out in this months classes of Scaleauto and Slotworx V8. First up was the combination of old and new chassis in scaleauto. First over the line in the old girl class was Brooksy . Continue his speed from his road trip back here. Second was his travel partner Rodney with a very good podium. Old master Jim finished off the podium for a solid third . The new class had myself Pagey in for a win with my travel partner Benno in for second .Jules in for a quality 3rd place rounding out the podium. Dunlop V8 Supercars was another dominant drive from Brooksy . His mate Gregg nails a well driven second and Rodney again in for third place . Super series has been a dog fight between myself and Ben of late . Same again this week with Ben getting the job done for a good win . Pagey for second and team Nissan driver Clinton with a very impressive drive for third . Great work Clint. Thanks to everyone for being on time and for the support. We do it again for the last time with these classes next Thursday. 

 

Cheers Pagey

Thanks Benno for posting the results from last night . Awesome night as always with 19 starters . Fantastic numbers continue, so we must be doing something right with our race nights . Great to have a new , old racer with us last night . Col raced years ago and had his first race with us last night . Welcome back to slotcars Col and well driven . We had our last round in this months classes of Scaleauto and Slotworx V8 . First up was the combination old and new chassis Scaleauto. The old girl class had 5 starters. Everyone is making there way to the new chassis as designed by our slow facing out of the older class . Rod with a good drive to take the win over Jim for second and another Podium for Gregg in for third place . It was a continued dog fight between road trip racers Ben and Pagey with a good come back to form for Cam . Ben gets the win this week with Pagey second and Cam for third . Dunlop series of V8 was very entertaining and close . Jamie with one of his best drives in for first place . Awesome work mate . Cam very close behind for second and JJ with a good effort for third . Super series V8 was a red hot pace . Nothing much in the hole field . It came down to traffic management and racing luck . Ben was a clear fastest car on track setting quickest times on all lanes . Brooksy was also seriously fast showing why he is the defending Bathurst champ . Results ended up with Ben first , Brooksy second and Pagey for third . Very close and unlucky to miss the podium was Clinton and Chris . Nothing really in the results and it could have gone half a dozen other ways with good and bad luck stories. All looking fantastic with everyone driving well with the big race meet only a few weeks away . Thanks to Brooksy for race control and commentary team efforts. Also Vito for commentary of the Super class race . Ben for help through out the night . To all the racers thanks for the continued support and to our followers on Facebook via our live streaming. Next week change of classes for the month . Return of GT3 and FLM . Probably our two fastest classes so expect fast action. 

 

Cheers Pagey

   Great nights racing with our change of classes for the month of GT3 and FLM . Probably our two fastest classes back to back. With a field of 17 racers it was a solid turn out again . We had some very close results through the night with plenty of battles . Troy , Vito , JJ and Charles having some funny moments and plenty of banter in the Dunlop series. It was good to see these classes running well as they will be part of our up coming Bathurst weekend. Also great to see a few more boys gearing up with new GT3 cars . Ben has sold a few quick cars to help the boys out .Gregg,  Mick , Geoff and Serge all driving well with there new wheels . Results for GT3 was a good win to Ben , Cam very close for second and Pagey in for third . In one heat the entire grid got a jump start other than Rod . Cam and Pagey included . The Dunlop FLM race was a very close thing . Charles with a good run just Pipped at the post by a fast finishing Troy . Vito was able to shrug off all the abuse from Troy for a good third . The super FLM was a very fast race . Ben set a fast pace but a car issue ended his chances . Brooksy was in another Ben car and of course was out front for most of the race . Cam topping of a good night to get the win and Pagey also just sneaking past Brooksy for second . Brooksy for third. Thanks to Brooksy, Ben and Vito for the help on the night . Thanks for all the support and looking forward to next week as everyone tunes up for Bathurst. 

 

Cheers Pagey

Week 2 of our GT3 and FLM was fast and furious.  With only a week until the Bathurst in July race meeting everyone was keen to see how there set ups were going . The GT3 race with no surprises was Ben showing a class drive to first . Cam back in the groove with a quality second and Brooksy strapping into a JJ car for a test drive getting third . Dunlop FLM was as always a very entertaining race with plenty of battles and banter to match . The racing has certainly closed up in Dunlop with not much between drivers . Ben after his car fail with a lead wire last week showed his class with a strong win . Second was Serg with a guest drive in a Team Nissan prepared car . Rodney has some close battles and in for third . Super series had some very fast lap times . Cam showing his talent for a fine drive for first . Brooksy continues his form for second and Pagey with a messy drive for third . Next week is normal racing with these classes. We will be joined by a few guest drivers keen to do some laps before the weekends racing. Everyone is getting excited for the up coming event and meeting up with our out of town mates . Tune in for the action next week . Thanks to Ben and Brooksy for the help on the night and Vito for his commentary team efforts. 

 

Cheers Pagey
