Postby Mark Fox » Mon Feb 23, 2015 6:03 pm

OK - now to the race (you should have read the Post "2015 LMP 2 Hour at HSC - The Preliminaries" to set the scene here.

Cam took out the best looker award (for the car) and it was truly beautiful.

Qualifying was close with only 0.2 secs (close enough for you pedants who will say it was actually 0.197) from top to bottom - these cars are very sophisticated and great to drive around HSC.

Top three were:-
Phoenix with Noel the pilot at 5.268
JRS with Mark the pilot at 5.314 and
Extreme Trax with Shane doing the honours at 5.341
a spread of .073 sec!
