February 27th saw the Superstock class at Huntly International Speedway
Last weekend’s report from the SUPERSTOCKS and what a show they put on! Big thanks to Aaron Murdoch for putting in the time to give us a review! February 27th saw the Superstock class at Huntly International Speedway as a support class for the North Island Minisprint champs and Waikato Ministock champs.
With a good field of 20 cars in attendance, with drivers from Auckland, Rotorua, Baypark and Kihikihi joining a few Huntly cars.
A few new drivers including 57v Ryan Marshall in his brothers Superstock for the night, the returning 115a Darren Short in his new Keith Gill chassis and SVO Ford power and another Ashton, this time 17 year old Caleb Ashton, son of long time racer Lance Ashton along with his brother
Kyle Ashton 24r in his newly purchased ex Clive Stanaway machine.
The first race went the way of Baypark driver 99m Todd Hemingway setting a blistering pace setting the benchmark for the night.
Race two had a couple of cars short with 638R Robbie Morris leaving early and 911R Carl Southall trying to replace a broken drive shaft and clutch problems, thus ending his night, this race ended with 351R Paul Vazey at the pointy end with the win after a good battle with young Caleb Ashton 23R.
Race three had a couple of driver changes again with Dylan Marshall back in his car 57V and the 99M Todd Hemingway car being driven by stockcar driver Marc Dunn, 23R Caleb Ashton started on grid one and speed away, chased hard by Baypark legend Kerry Remnant 19M, this battle was the race of the night with the lead changing hands many times, with the small crowd on their feet watching the master versus the apprentice going the whole race, right to the last lap with the young gun Caleb
Ashton taking the win by only a couple of car lengths.
All in all a good turn out for the Superstock boys!!
