Aaron Lee had previously won two New South Wales State Championships in one of the slowest categories, but his plunge into the fastest racing category in New South Wales – Supersports – earned the Supersports debutante three third placings in the three races that made up Round 1 of the 2022 Industrie Clothing New South Wales Supersports Championship at Wakefield Park on Saturday the 26th of November.
After only having driven around fourteen laps in his West Logitech BHe WR1000 in all his practice sessions prior to Round 1 of the 2022 Industrie Clothing New South Wales Supersports Championship, and having experienced engineering troubles appear that he and his engineering team struggled to rectify, Aaron logged lap times in Friday practice that he knew would make him more competitive than he had anticipated to that point.
“My target was a 1.00 lap of Wakefield Park. I achieved a 59.5 on my tenth lap of practice on Friday. If the track had not been affected by rain earlier today, I am confident I could have found some more time.” Aaron excitedly proclaimed after the last race of the weekend.
For a time early in Race 3, Aaron found himself in second place close on the tail of race leader and reigning Industrie Clothing New South Wales Supersports Champion, Darren Barlow, after second placed Peter White ran wide on one of the damp patches of the rain soaked Wakefield Park circuit, Aaron then pushing Darren along until a resurging Alex Kenny, one of New South Wales Supersports most experienced competitors, stole second place from Aaron with just three laps remaining.
“I had some fuel surge in my car, and was always on for a good result. Can’t complain. Let’s see how things go at the next round”.
