Just three points separate the top two in the standings as the Performax TA2 Muscle Car Series returns to Queensland Raceway for the penultimate round of the series this weekend, September 15-16 at the Queensland Racing Driver’s Championship (QRDC) meeting.
Lighthouse Electrical Chevrolet Camaro driver Ashley Jarvis regained the series lead from Russell Wright’s RoadBees Transport Mustang after winning round five of the series at Wakefield Park last month, highlighted by the clash between the Mustangs of title contenders Wright and Hugh McAlister on the opening lap of race three of the weekend.
McAlister dropped back to third in the points as a result and now sits 35 points away from Jarvis.
Camaro racer Cameron Sendall completes the top five in the standings, just 14-points off Ian McAlister with two rounds remaining.
A 13-car grid heads to the Ipswich circuit this weekend, as the series continues to grow with sales behind the scenes in the lead up to the 2019 season.
Season regular Greg Willis will miss this round with overseas commitments, but will leave the door of the #44 SuretyIT/Interfinancial Camaro open for Historic Touring Car racer Guy Gibbons to take the wheel as substitute.
The series also welcomes the debut of former Queensland Touring Car Championship racer Murray Kent, as he steps up from state-level racing to the national TA2 series in a Chevrolet Camaro.
Young-gun Aaron Seton remains the driver in-form heading into the weekend at Queensland Raceway. Seton took two out of four race wins last time out at Wakefield Park, and scored the round win at round four at Queensland Raceway with a clean sweep and the lap record.
The Performax TA2 Muscle Car Series will have four races across the weekend, headlining the fifth round of the QRDC, with live timing available at Natsoft Race Results.
