24/10/15 Shannon’s Summer Race Meeting

A big well done and pat on the back to all officials and volunteers who worked at Shannon’s Summer Race Meeting this weekend at Barbagallo Raceway. The drivers certainly threw some curve balls (and tyre) our way but you were all up for the challenge. It’s always fantastic being a part of such a wonderful group of people. I pretty much say that every event but, working within different teams across my 15 years of officiating, working with my WA family of officials is always a pleasure.

Formula Fords, Formula Classic and F1000s had some seriously fast pace again, which made for some great racing. It was fantastic to see so many F1000s out yesterday. I hope the class continues to strengthen into 2016.

As always, Improved Production Racing Association of WA and WA Excel Cup put on a fantastic show and I hope Tim and Glen are okay. Hopefully see you all down in Collie on 8th November for your end of season sheep station battle.

Formula Vee Western Australia, what can I say? The racing was amazing all weekend. Close racing throughout the entire class and edge of your seat stuff between the lead four cars.

HQ Racing WA, you all certainly keep things entertaining on circuit and are very much a welcome sight at the end of the day. I’m sure I’m not the only one who looks forward to the end of day BBQ. A big thank you for giving up your time to feed the hungry hordes, service is always with a smile.

Last but certainly not least, WA Historic Touring Car Club. Another of the WA clubs who have gone above and beyond supporting us flaggies. Thank you to the drivers who have participated in the lunchtime meet and greets during the season, it has been great putting face to name and car and getting to know you all. Another thank you for Sunday’s breakfast, it went down an absolute treat. It is always a pleasure watching your races and this weekend was no different.

Circuit racing season is slowly drawing to an end with only two events left for the year. Will hopefully see everyone in Collie in a couple of weeks or at the enduro nightmasters a fortnight after that.
