The third round of the Victorian Circuit Racing Championship was held last week at Sandown. Driven Threads went down to check out some of the action in the Improved Production class. The great thing about any race meet is there are always a couple of unexpected surprises. As I entered the main gate I couldn’t resist this tough rod.
And, as I walked through the gate, this ugly thing captured by lens. This abomination is 50 years old this year.
Like Round two of this event, the number of exotic eye-candy in the car park was captivating.
One of the most exciting classes is the 944 series. This is Steve Courtis who finished 3rd in Race 3.
The Improved Production class is always entertaining. E30’s appear to be the most popular model to race in this class. The Improved production class allows for entry level racing with a production body shell. Limited modifications to engines, brakes and suspension are allowed with a control tyre; the Yokohama A048R Race tyre.
Real race cars have battle scars.
This Audi 80 looks great out on the track battling with the e30’s.
Classic JDM battle between the Datsun 1200 and Mitsubishi Cordia.
Ford Fiesta Xr4 out for play.
The quick Mazda 323 GTX lapping in the mid 1:20’s.
These two Rx7’s were probably the loudest out there.
Datsun vs Nissan. For the record the Bluebird was lapping marginally quicker.
This Torana finished second in the class, with a fastest lap hovering around 1:20 behind the winning Commodore of Damien Milano.
Well that’s it from us. Thanks for reading and we hoped you enjoyed our coverage from the 3rd Round of the Victorian Circuit Racing Championships.
