QR to mark the Mid-Way point of 2018 QRSS Season.
This weekend, the QR Sports and Sedans championship will be back in action, for the first time since the 2 Days of Thunder weekend in June, bringing their mid-season break to an end, in readiness for the final three rounds of the 2018 season.
As they often do, they’ll share the circuit with the Production Ute Racing Queensland fraternity, as the competitors of that series do battle in the fourth round of their 2018 championship, and do so without their points leader.
John McLaughlin, the dominant force of the PURQ series will sit this one out, which opens the door for one of his opposition, to step up, and snatch the championship lead away from the defending champ. A field of just six utes will contest this round.
In QR Sports and Sedans, this is the mid-way point of the season – two rounds down, and, at the completion of this weekend, there’ll be just two to go.
Ryan McLeod’s MARC Cars Australia franchise will have one car on the grid, and if past results are anything to go by, that vehicle will be hard to beat, irrespective of who is driving it.
Elsewhere, the eclectic mix of sports cars and sedan vehicles always makes for interesting racing. This weekend alone, Mitsubishi, Mazda, Ford and Dodge all feature in the 7-car field, including Lakeside 300 entrant, Scott McLennan, and the Mitsubishi Evo of Darren Holland, who will be very much in contention for outright honours this weekend.
This weekend’s four-race program will feature two races on the ‘National’ circuit, and two on the ‘Clubman’ circuit.
The next round of the series will be held as part of the annual Ipswich Classic, on the opening weekend of November.
