Lake­side

Park hosted the open­ing rounds of the 2017 Aus­tralia Trans-Am se­ries and its mod­ern day coun­ter­part, TA2, over March 18 and 19.

In the clas­sic-era Trans-Am cat­e­gory Shan­non O’Brien won three of the four sprints to take the week­end hon­ours at the Lake­side Trib­ute meet­ing. The only other race win­ner was Ca­maro driver, Cam Wil­son.

Mean­time, in the TA2 races, Rus­sell Wright scored a quar­tet of vic­to­ries in a Mus­tang (#50). Fel­low Mus­tang driv­ers Craig Har­ris and Ian McCal­lis­ter were the best of the rest.

Wright was a busy boy that week­end as he did dou­ble duty in the (older) sis­ter class. His best re­sult was sec­ond in the open­ing race to O’Brien. The best of the Ca­maro driv­ers was Cameron Sen­dall.

The week­end saw the Aus­tralian de­but of the Dodge Chal­lenger-shaped TA2 car, with se­ries chief Peter Robin­son per­form­ing the hon­ours.
