|Another Great Titan Weekend For Farr|
Last Saturday night in Brisbane was my second meeting of the season in the Titan Garages Maxim and while I didn’t repeat my great form from the previous Brisbane meeting in winning the heats and dash I did end the night off with a victory in the A Main.
I flew to Brisbane around lunch time on Saturday with Steve picking me up from the airport we headed straight to the workshop. The guys had much of the work done and there was next to nothing to do, so at 3.30 or so we loaded the car into the truck and headed off to the track.
The format had changed from the first meeting there, this time it was on handicap and with me winning the previous meeting I was coming from back of the field in both my heats. I came out of I think eight in heat 2 and seven in heat 3 but was only able to finish both events in second position, which wasn’t too bad. I then picked up another second in the dash and then started out of position two in the main.
It took 3 or 4 starts to get the race going, I just couldn’t get traction from position 2 and Darren Jensen won the start. It wasn’t until lap 5 or 6 before I could get into the lead after passing Darren down the back straight. Then around lap 9 or 10 we got into heavy traffic, I missed the bottom and Terry Bracken got by on the back straight. Well I retook him on the front straight and from there continued on to win by around a 1/4 of a lap.
We had good car speed all night but there just wasn’t enough room to pass. I think we set quickest time in the early hot laps session. It was another no drama’s night and after a couple of beers after the race I headed back to the motel before flying home on Sunday.
This Saturday night I’m back home at Parramatta and hopefully I can win the season opener there like I did last year in the Titan Garages Maxim. If you’re at Parramatta come down and say hi.
See you at the track soon,
