|Sports Racer series vehicles are powered by high tech production based motorcycle engines revving to 13,000rpm and lapping circuits at V8 Supercar times and so they have their own unique overheating issues.
Like most racing vehicle owners we know first hand that overheating can sap performance and potentially even damage your vehicle. We had heard good things about Liquid Intelligence 115 Super Waterless Coolant and we were so impressed that we have upgraded all our vehicles to use this amazing product.
Overheating is now just a non-issue for us… what can I say… it just works!
Proctor extends points lead as AP Racing dominates
Two race wins and a front-row lock out saw AP Racing dominate the third round of the Sports Racer National Championship at Phillip Island last weekend, with factory racer Adam Proctor heading the title fight 104 points clear of his rivals with just two rounds remaining.
Supporting the QBE Australian Superbike Championship, AP Racing launched an all-out assault on the 4.4km circuit, entering no less than four cars; Stohr WF-1’s apiece for Proctor, Michael Shaw and debutant Craig Perry with a West for Darren Barlow.
Proctor and Shaw made it an all AP Racing Stohr WF-1 front row by setting the fastest qualifying laps, more than a second clear of the field before Proctor dominated the opening race, winning the eight lap sprint by almost four seconds in wet conditions.
A determined drive by Shaw netted third place in his first race in the Stohr WF-1 in the wet before losing a lap after leaving the track in the second race. An inspired drive from the rear of the field in the final race saw the New South Welshman running in fourth before a fuel coupling prematurely ended his weekend.
While there was disappointment for Shaw the AP Racing crew was encouraged by the solid progress of Craig Perry in his first race, while strong and consistent drives from Darren Barlow saw him round out the weekend fourth overall in the AP Racing prepared West.
The round victory went to Proctor, who missed a clean sweep of the event by finishing just three-thousandths of a second to James Winslow in the second race. Proctor extends his championship lead to 104 points, while Shaw maintains second in the championship.
“Michael was really fast too, and if it wasn’t for some bad luck would have been right up there at the front. That’s motor racing though and he’s maintained second spot in the championship which is a fantastic result for the team.
“I’m really pleased with the progress of Craig Perry. He showed well in his first weekend and we’re looking forward to helping him build on the strong weekend he had here. Darren too had an amazing weekend to finish fourth overall, right up among some of the fastest West’s in the country, which is a strong achievement for the team.
“All in all we couldn’t have hoped for more, it’s especially sweet to get the lap record too and to head in to Queensland Raceway having extended our lead in the championship is really encouraging for the whole team.”
