Bayley Hall took to the iconic Mount Panorama racetrack for the first time in his fledgling motorsport career and was far from intimidated by the undulating 6.21km circuit nor the Ford Ranger SuperUte.

This track is insane, Im hooked,” Hall exclaimed. “Everything about the height changes and blind corners makes it an absolute rush to experience. Much better and smoother than I expected, I have really enjoyed it so far.”

”What a thrill I will never forget my very first lap around this track. The plan was to just ease myself into it which I did & over the 6 laps improved my times by 11 seconds, the team was happy with my progress so a thumbs up for my first go,” Hall said after his first session.

The 16 year old from Queensland swapped his V8 powered Holden Commodore, which he has run in the Queensland Touring Car Championship, for the turbo charged diesel engined SuperUte category. The Super Ute presented Bayley with the dual tasks of learning both the circuit as well as the characteristics of a totally different type of racing car.

“The hardest part is getting the most out of the car,” Hall said. “I just haven’t found a way to be my fastest yet. It’s a very different car that is currently uncomfortable because it is so unpredictable but I will give it my all to get used to it as fast as I can.”

After a promising start in the first practice session, Hall lost valuable track time in the second session after a mechanical problem cut short Bayley’s time on track.

“I’m disappointed that I only got to experience 7 laps today due to fuel pressure issues but would really like to increase lap times for qualifying & have car reliability to be within the top 8,” Hall said.

Qualifying for the SuperUte series kicks off at 7.20am tomorrow for a 20 minute session before the only race late in the day, the weather’s looking a bit overcast with a chance of rain, so Bayleys learning curve will go up even more so than what he has experienced today.
