    ***********Raceonoz takes on the Petit Lemans***********​

    Yesterday saw 3 Raceonoz cars take on the 10 hour long Petit Lemans at Road Atlanta.

    In the 1st session, Steven Latimore, Michael Kirkham, Damon Mulqueen and Bob King lined up in the Mercedes AMG GT3 #341. A late decision to start from the pit lane saw the team start 2nd last but a solid performance and some great overtaking saw the team make its way up to 25th before an unfortunate spin on lap 64 at turn 4 saw the AMG in the wall. After making it back to the pits and doing the necessary repairs the team came out in 47th. Knowing that there was a long race ahead, the team put their heads down and pumped out solid laps until the finish and ended up 10th in class and 25th overall.

    In the 2nd session, Ben Stensrud, Benjamin Smith, Matt Allison and Steven Latimore lined up in the Ferrari 488 GTE #345. The team started 15th overall and made it up to 13th before a spin in Turn 1 on lap 4 left the team vulnerable before another car plowed into them seeing the 488 gain wings and fly through the air. After a lengthy repair, the team came back out in 39th; however, like the team in the first session, kept their heads down and showing determination pushed their way back up to 12th in class and 18th overall where they would finish. Sadly, 5 laps from the end, the 488 engine expired and the team didn't get to see a deserved checkered flag.

    Also in the 2nd session, Jesse Varley, debutant Mark Lee and Liam Tipping lined up in the Mercedes AMG GT3 #222. The team lined up in 33rd and had made solid progress. Some great driving by Jesse Varley in the opening stints saw the team have a solid foundation to build upon while other teams in their class retired from the race. In the end, the usually bulletproof AMG engine blew up 6 laps from the end, preventing them from seeing a deserved chequered flag; however, the team finished just behind the 488 in 19th overall and 4TH IN CLASS!

    The road racing team now changes their focus to taming the mountain in 2 weeks where they look at fielding possibly 5+ teams for the Bathurst 1000.

    FEAR THE ROO!

    LIAM JENSEN AND LIAM TIPPING CROWNED KING OF THE MOUNTAIN IN SPLIT 4
    ********************************************************

    In nothing short of an eventful day, 4 of the 5 RaceOnOz teams that set out at the start saw the chequered flag at the end of the 161 laps of the epic Mount Panorama.

    With 3 of the teams in the same split, it was not only on for the overall prize but also on for team bragging rights.

    In Split 4, Liam Tipping and Liam Jensen (#54) started on pole, Damon Mulqueen and Steve Kirk (#52) lined up 4th and Jesse Varley and Ryan Gorton (#53) would line up 9th.

    All 3 teams started well but an incident in the early laps for car #52 saw some repairs and them drop back to 20th. #54 and #53 were in the top 5 for the first quarter of the race where some damage to car #53 saw them have to pit for some repairs as well.

    In the end, the two Liam's in car #54 would take line honours with Damon and Steve in car #52 making their way back up to 7th while Jesse and Ryan in car #53 crossed the line in 9th seeing 3 RaceOnOz cars in the top 10 and still running.

    In Split 3, Luke Muir and Scott Butler, waving the banner for Ford in car #5, lined up on the grid in 18th and would make their way up to 6th. Unfortunately some technical issues with Luke's wheel saw them drop back in the field and also saw Scott do a massive 105 laps out of the team's 136 lap total and end up also in the top 10 at the end in 9th.

    In Split 2, Steven Latimore and Benjamin Smith in car #51 lined up in 2nd position on the grid. A solid start saw them leading the field but on lap 45, it would all come unstuck where the car crashed in a mirror image of Chaz Mostert's crash in 2015. The car rejoined after taking repairs but the damage was too great and the team decided to park the car after the engine expired on lap 65.

    A massive congratulations to all in the team for taking on the mountain, to 4 of the 5 teams for finishing in the top 10 and to the Liam's on their win!

    FEAR THE ROO!

    Last night the Traxstar Race Wear RaceOnOz squad headed to round 8 FKAU Australian Speedway League of the USAC Wingless 410 series @ Williams Grove Speedway. Bob King took the win in the 35 lap race, unfortunately after some incidents with slower cars Cameron Taylor would find himself at the back of the field mid race, Cam drove his way back into the top 5 in an impressive drive.[​IMG]

    The Hervey Bay AutoglassRACEONOZ iRacing team competed in their first VLN race which races around the unforgiving Nurburgring Nordschleife. Round one was a 4 hour race where we had two teams compete.
    [​IMG]
    Both cars did well to finish in their first attempts at the race with Steven Latimore and Tyler Blackburn finishing in 9th place and Matt Allison and Ian Smee bringing the car home in 15th place. The team gained great experience from this race and look forward to improving in VLN2.

    The Hervey Bay AutoglassRACEONOZ team competed in their second VLN race with the aim of improving on their first outing. Round two was also a four hour race where we had three cars entered.
    [​IMG]
    Unfortunately one of the cars was disqualified due to an iRacing issue where a mechanical black flag kept waving after repairs were made. The other cars finished the race gaining vital experience once again.
    [​IMG]
    Steven Latimore and Tyler Blackburn matched their previous performance finishing in 9th place in class while Matt Allison and Ian Smee improved their result by bringing the car home in 11th place in class.

    The third round of the Aussie Mixed & Fixed Iracing League GT3 Development series was held at Donington Park. This made for some close racing, however passing proved difficult which resulted in large packs of cars grouped together.

    #07 Steven Latimore and #947 Tyler Blackburn drove the Hervey Bay Autoglass Raceonoz Commodore and Falcon into the 2nd split.

    Starting from 28th on the grid Blackburn held the car steady taking 13 spots to finish in 15th place.
    [​IMG]
    Latimore drove a solid race showing speed while attacking the front of the midfield, knocking on the door of the top 10 the whole race.
    [​IMG]
    The door opened in the closing laps and Latimore finished in 9th spot. A good result from the team but will be looking to be stronger as the season continues.

    Tipping wins at Round 5 of the V8 Dev Series!!!
    [​IMG]
    The fifth round of the OSR - Oceanic Sim Racing V8 Development series brought to us by Virtual Racing School and CPR Kart Parts was held at Mid Ohio Sports Car Course. After a long break from the V8, #78 Liam Tipping represented the Hervey Bay Autoglass RACEONOZ team expecting to be in a mid pack scrap. But after a great qualifying session he found himself 5th on the grid in split 1!
    [​IMG]
    Tipping made a great jump off the line which got him up to 4th and then he went for a bold move into turn 2 which moved him up to 3rd. From then on it was a case of putting maximum pressure on the lead cars. Coming in for tyres and fuel on lap 11, he jumped the leaders with ease using the fresh rubber. The remainder of the race was all about preserving tyres along with holding off the Fusion SimRacing Falcon of Trent Thomas. In the end Tipping hauled the car across the line for the win with only 1 litre in the tank and very second hand tyres.

    “I'm stoked with the result, coming to a track I've never driven and being out of the car for so long makes this my most satisfying result in my iRacing career.” (Liam Tipping)
