Round 2 Race Report

4th July 2014

ROUND TWO RACE REPORT THANKS TO KATIE HARRIS  (RACV EB)

 Round 2 of the 2014 UniSA Australian HPV Super Series was held at Victoria Park on 15 June.

 Over 180 teams from South Australia and interstate took to the track to compete in the 6-hour endurance race.  The weather proved a challenge with a wet and foggy start as teams started to assemble into grid positions and the rain remained present in regular short and light intervals throughout the race.
As the hours passed throughout the race, many vehicles and teams performed better than previously in Round 1, and now have bigger goals set for Round 3 in July. 

As the results go… 

Category One – Primary. This was a highly competitive and contested race right down to the final lap.  In the end it was Highgate Hot Rod from Highgate primary School finishing 5 laps clear of second place, making it two wins from two races already in 2014. The real battle was between second and third where it was Crafers Primary School’s The Edge that finished a mere 1.5 seconds in front of third place Murrayville’s Community College Hot M, with both teams finishing on 130 laps.

Category Two - Junior Secondary.  This field was won by Pembroke School’s Eric The Bee on 160 laps, and only 3 laps behind them was Aberfoyle Hub R-7 School APHS’s Raging Hubcaps, finishing 6 laps clear of third place getters Loxton High School’s Little Blurry on 151 laps.

Category Three - Senior Secondary.  This field was taken out by a Victorian team from Emerald District Education Centre (EDEC), Fire Breathing Rubber Duckies, taking our Category Three on 182 laps, maintaining a consistent lead over Xavier College’s Green Edge on 171 laps, and third place getters Pembroke School’s Brian on 168 laps.

Category Four – Open.  This was one of the most competitive fields throughout the weekend; the race was taken out by another Victorian Team, Platt Racing from Trump Trikes, who grabbed the win on 202 laps, only 3 laps clear of fellow Victorians Team 1 from Trisled Racing.  Third place was taken out by Norwood Morialta High School’s Focus on 191 laps.  A special congratulations to Platt Racing rider Cameron Platt taking out the fastest lap on the weekend with an impressive time of 1:27:7 on lap 171!

A big thank-you to the Australian International Pedal Prix Board who again ran a smooth, safe and enjoyable event.  Next event is Round 3 on July 26 - 27 followed by the inaugural  Bussleton 6 hour on 16 - 17 August and then of course, the final round: the famous 24 hour Australian International Pedal Prix held in Murray Bridge on 20 – 21 September.
