Confusion reigns in first two-driver TA2 race

A GLITCH made for a confusing end to the world-first two-driver TA2 race yesterday at Hidden Valley.

Dylan Thomas and Tim Brook were crowned victorious in the Sunday feature race but it wasn’t until this morning that full results were released from the 20-lap affair.

The TA2 Muscle Car Series reported that was due to a mid-race gremlin with the timing system which, as of last night, meant “all other results are currently provisional pending a late-night investigation and will be released when corrected.”

Results have since been published this morning, confirming Thomas/Brook as winners and with father-son combination Steve and Michael Coulter classified second and Brad Gartner/Max Vidau third.

“There has been a fair bit going on all weekend to be fair, even during the sprint races it’s all been pretty hectic,” said Thomas.

“The most obvious passing opportunity would have to be at the end of the straight, it is very long.

“Tim had his own little moment at the end so I told him we don’t need to be too desperate.

“We are both very excited to have a crack for tomorrow’s Kings of the North race.”

The Kings of the North mantle, awarded to the driver pairing which accrues the most round points, comes with a $20,000 payday attached.

Making the most of the Labour Day long weekend, with another three TA2 races taking place today in Darwin: a sprint race for each driver, followed by a 35-lap two-driver enduro.

The Sunday sprint race wins went to Nathan Herne and Brook, while the opening Monday victory went to Jordan Cox.
