Clean Sweep for AP Racing at Phillip Island
Qualifying went well with Proctor putting the AP Racing Stohr on pole (1m 28.72s) ahead of South Australian drivers Roger I’Anson (West), Aaron Steer (West) with AP Racing team mate Darren Barlow in fourth slot.
Race one saw I’Anson made a good start to take the early lead, followed by Proctor and Steer. On lap two Proctor reclaimed the lead which he held to the chequered flag, finishing ahead of Steer and I’Anson who was slowed on the final laps by mechanical issues. Darren Barlow was unfortunately turned around by a fellow competitor thus dropping him back through the field.
In Race two Aaron Steer made the better start to lead Proctor and I’Anson on the first tour. Proctor’s Stohr regained the race lead on lap two as Steer and I’Anson scrapped over the minor placings. I’Anson recovered to briefly grab the race lead on lap 8 after a late charge into Honda corner. Proctor quickly recovered with a well-timed passing move on the approach to turn one to take a well-earned win ahead of I’Anson, Steer and Barlow.
For race three Adam Proctor made a great start to lead at turn one. He then drove away unchallenged to take the flag ahead of I’Anson, with Aaron Steer in third.
The good result has brought Adam Proctor back into contention for the Shannons Nationals Australian Sports Racer Series for 2014. With one round to go at Goulburn’s Wakefield Park on October 17-19, Roger I’Anson leads the series by a single point from AP Racing’s Adam Proctor ahead of Aaron Steer, J-P Drake and Darren Barlow.
