West / I’Anson – Another Clean Sweep For ASRS Round 2 & Track Record

Race 2 saw I’Anson set the lap record with a 1.20.2345 which was by far the fastest time set by any category at Winton this weekend. Proctor managed a 2nd place over 10 seconds behind followed closely by Steer & McInnes on 3rd & 4th respectively.

Race 3 again saw I’Anson blast away from the competition, as usual leading from start to end unchallenged. With Proctor giving chase he was never in contention, I’Anson driving a flawless race. Proctor again maintained second with Steer close in 3rd.

Joining I’Anson on the round two podium today were runner-up Adam Proctor  and third-placed Aaron Steer (#3 West Race Cars West) who were separated by just one point in the final standings. Fourth for the round was Proctor’s stable mate Darren Barlow, while West’s John-Paul Drake secured fifth for the round in only his second national Sports Racer event aboard the #56 West Race Cars West.
