[Part 1 of 2. See below for links to further parts] Australia. 2008 WPS Bathurst Motor Festival FORMULA VEE CHALLENGE. Mount Panorama, Bathurst, New South Wales. February 8-10 2008. Field of 55 Formula Vee's competing. Onboard with Tim Hamilton, Race 2 starting from 5th, 6 laps.
Starting 5th, Tim looses a number of positions early on, falling as low as 10th. Despite getting back to 6th, the lead group had towed away and an enthralling battle began with Gary Ogden (Mako 04) for the position. Racing side-by-side across McPhillamy (the mountain top) was a brave and daring highlight for the combatants.
Unfortunately, nearing the end of lap 6, Tim makes heavy contact with the wall exiting Forest's Elbow (T18, onto Conrod Straight) resulting in a non-finish (DNF). Suspected to be as a result of choosing too-higher tyre pressures, Tim was battling a nervous & twitchy lack of grip, with both chronic under-steer and over-steer. Simply driver error, pushing too hard with oversteer through Forest Elbow, finally caught up to end the weekend.
With no spares package, the damage was not repairable for the final race.
