Must try harder
Auckland Superstock Teams
Not sure what to write about this meeting. I was only able to make it to the qualifying on Friday and although there seem to be mixed reviews about it I thought the night was pretty dire. It did rain just before the racing started and with a poor support programme of TQ's and MiniStox the first actual teams race didn't run until 8:40pm which is unbelievable. I'm not sure what support racing was on the Saturday night but I'm guessing no Stockcars were in attendance which was a strange decision for the crowd that would be attending this meeting. The teams racing was tame although a couple of races provided some great action and close finishes.
I've heard that the racing on Saturday night was much better and if you didn't already know, the Palmerston North Panthers once again took the title for the 4th year in a row. Even on Friday it looked a forgone conclusion to me. Is there any team who can beat the Panthers? Big thanks though to the drivers and crews that did turn up for the meeting, there are a lot of people out there shutting up shop at the moment and it sure as hell aint cheap to race. Cant think of any other positives to add to this review so we'll just leave it there and put a few photos.
Meeting rating : 5/10
