MW Motorsport has made a fantastic start to the 2019 Kumho Super3 Series at Phillip Island today.

Zak Best steered his Falcon FG to the overall victory after finishing third, first and third and claiming an early series lead.

Second overall went to Best’s team-mate Hamish Ribarits, with his highlight coming in the final race with well-earned victory.

Rookie Supercars racer Nic Carroll also had an encouraging start, finishing seventh overall. His best result came in Race 2 where he finished second, only to suffer a puncture with three laps to go in the final. It cost him a chance at an overall podium.

The next round of the Kumho Super3 Series heads to Winton, supporting the Supercars Championship on May 24-26.

“Really happy to finish up with the round win here at Phillip Island for the first round,” said Zak Best.

“Practice was challenge on the old tyres in difficult conditions, and qualifying was also difficult because of the changeable conditions.

“Race 1 was challenging. It was difficult to pass but ended up third.

“I got a really good start in Race 2 and led the whole race lights to flag.

“Race 3 wasn’t as good. I fell back with the lack of a full set of greens like the others, but we’ll push onto Winton now and hope we can repeat these results.”

“I had a really good weekend with MW Motorsport. They gave me an awesome car all weekend,” said Hamish Ribarits.

“To come away second for the weekend, I’m over the moon because I didn’t expect that I’d have this speed over the weekend.

“It was really good racing all weekend with Broc, Zak and Nick. It was really good experience for my first time in this category.

“I’m looking forward to the next round at Winton. I’ll approach it like any other round, go through the footage and data and see where we can improve.

“We need to roll out of Winton with a good car set-up and we’ve done some good pre-season stuff and we’ll have good data to back us.”

“Overall, it was a good weekend, and I was learning about driving the car,” said Nic Carroll.

“I moved upon to fifth from starting eighth, so that was good to get that out of the way.

“I started fifth in Race 2 and finished second, so that was awesome.

“I didn’t get the best start in Race 3. I got too much wheel spin. Moved back to fourth but unfortunately got a puncture going into Siberia.

“I really enjoyed working with the team at MW Motorsport. I progressed and improved and did better than I thought, so a big thanks to the crew.”
