Quinn dominates opening GT encounter

Saturday 9th July, 2011 - 9:50pm


Race 1 of Round 4 of the 2011 Vodka O Australian GT Championship in Townsville was all about Klark Quinn, with the Mosler MT900 driver leading every lap of the race from pole position.

Having qualified third on Friday, the Mercedes SLS GT3 of Peter Hackett turned out to be Quinn’s main challenger, with the former Australian Formula 3 Champion just 1.3s adrift of the petfood maker at the flag.

Greg Crick (Dodge Viper), Mark Eddy (Audi R8 LMS), Ash Samadi (Mosler MT900) and Kevin Weeks (Lamborghini Gallardo) rounded out the top six at the completion of the 30 minute affair.

Tony Quinn (Aston Martin DBRS9) salvaged a seventh place finish despite an early pitstop and a spin, while Marc Cini (Porsche Cup S), Dean Grant (Porsche Cup S) and Ian Palmer (Dodge Viper) rounded out the top 10.

Round 4 of the 2011 Vodka O Australian GT Championship will conclude tomorrow. comment policy reserves the right to deny any post that is abusive or offtopic. Users are encouraged to flag/report comments which should be removed.
