Race One of the weekend for the TCR Series got off to a great start for DPO / Rondo i30’s.
Off the front row, Will Brown battled hard entering turn one resulting on him running wide in turn 2. An off track excursion via the gravel trap put the pace setting Hyundai towards the back of the pack.
Nathan Morcom came together with a spinning John Martin in the Honda also on the opening lap. He made it back to the pits only for the team to declare the damage too great to continue.
“I was past the spinning car only for it to gyrate into the side of my i30” Stated a depressed Morcom.
Morcom will start tomorrows race 2 from the back.
Brown made some cracking moves to march his way back through the pack and swapped position with James Moffat numerous times to eventually finishing in second position.
“Mad I ran off on the first lap but rewarding to finish second. These i30’s are fast” beamed Brown.
