Golding takes S5000 pole at Symmons Plains
Saturday 12th February, 2022 - 1:40pm
James Golding has qualified on pole position for Round 1 of the S5000 Australian Drivers’ Championship at Symmons Plains.
The 20-minute fight for pole was effectively a two-way contest between the Garry Rogers Motorsport driver and Team BRM’s 2021 champion Joey Mawson, with the former consolidating his advantage in clocking a 0:48.3895s on his 16th lap.
Mawson subsequently improved, but fell 0.0653s short in setting a 0:48.4548s near the end of his single run in the session.
Team-mate Tim Slade is set to start third after improving his time but not his position in achieving a 0:48.6139s with the chequered flag out, with Versa Motorsport’s Cooper Webster joining him on Row 2.
The rest of the nine-car grid will be Tim Macrow in fifth, from Blake Purdie, Josh Fife, Kaleb Ngatoa, and Adam Garwood.
