Young Queensland racing driver Bayley Hall turned some heads on Monday last week when he…
Thomas Randle crossed the finish line in front three times over the weekend at Queensland Raceway in the National Sports Sedan Series during the Shannons Nationals, but despite this only finished fourth for the round, we asked Thomas to give us a run down on his weekend and for the rest of the year.
“It was a fantastic weekend for the Skye Sands SAAB V8 Sports Sedan”.
“The car was reliable all weekend, never skipping a beat. We grabbed pole position in qualifying two, setting a 1.07.13, narrowly missing out on the outright lap record for the category, however I think if we had of put the new tyres on in qualifying one, a sub 1 minute 7s was possible”.
“We crossed the line first in all three races and took the race lap record on Sunday morning after having to start from the back (having been excluded from race one) with a 1.07.3, 2.3 seconds faster than the current Supercars lap record”.
Randle was excluded from race one due to a confusion with the tyres and officialdom.
“Unfortunately the final round of the championship clashes with my final Dunlop Super2 Round at Newcastle, so that will be the last time I race in the Sports Sedan this year. It has been an incredible training tool for me and I will take all my knowledge from this across to the Super2 for the rest of the season”.
“A big thanks to the guys at Dream Motorsport, Rusty French and my Dad for giving me the opportunity to let loose in one amazing car”.
We’ll chat with Thomas at the Super2 rounds later in the year, the next round is at Sandown 14-16 September.
