BMW Car Club Victoria hosted the annual joint Supersprint round at Winton Motor Raceway near Benalla in Victoria over the weekend 16th and 17th July. There was practice on Saturday and Supersprints as Round 4 for both clubs in their competition on Sunday. 22 Drivers from our Club entered and enjoyed two beautiful fine sunny winters' days on the resurfaced Winton track.
I think all drivers set personal best times. We all feared for Arthur when we observed all that smoke but it was only a destoyed tyre. Rob had a problem with the 2002 that ended his and Lachlan's weekend and Chris had a radiator leak in the M roadster but well after setting his best ever time. Look at www.Natsoft.com.au for all the times.
Our thanks go Graeme, Jo, Sean, Chris and the team from CCV for another great interclub competition.
