Stock Cars paired up with Extreme TT in their first round of the season as part of the AMRS series at Winton.
Sunday’s races were streamed live on Facebook and YouTube.
Michael Coulter was on Pole for the first of the two streamed races, Zac Ohara in the #27 unfortunately had a diff problem on Saturday that taken him out for the weekend robbing the field of a NASCAR.
OzTrucks, NASCAR and GTA cars made up the Stock Car category and Michael Coulter charged out to a lead, Steve Coulter got past the #19 to make it a Coulter 1-2 and it stayed that way for the rest of the race.
Shane Harris stayed in touch with the two OzTruck’s in third position for the entire race and finished on the bumper of the Steve Coulter with 1.9 seconds separating the three.
Brian Walden and Trevor Crisp battled each other for fourth position in the early going before the Extreme TT cars joined in the fun and passed them.
Trevor’s race went from good to bad in a hurry after getting his right side tyres on the grass on Lap 8 resulting in a spin and he retired from the race.
Brian Walden finished in sixth position, fourth out of the Stock Cars.
Race 3 got underway about 25 minutes later than the scheduled time of 4:10pm but only the Extreme TT cars lined up for the race, disappointing Stock Car viewers who hung around for the race.
It was reported that the field was down to just three cars (two trucks and one GTA) and so withdrawal was the best idea.
Overall the Stock Cars racing was a good introduction with around 80 viewers checking out the race on YouTube and the others who saw the action on Facebook.
