Peter White has achieved a clean sweep of race victories in the NSW Supersports support races at the Bunnings Trade Sydney SuperNight this weekend, aboard his GWR Australia Radical SR8.
White fended off attacks from fellow GWR driver Darren Barlow (Stohr) and the Juno of Alex Kenny to snare the trio of wins, in what he described as his best-ever race weekend.
“I’ve won races before, but I’ve never had a weekend where I’ve won three from three,” White said.
“If there was a weekend where I was going to win all the races, this was definitely the one to do it at, with the big crowd and TV coverage. A big thank you to the GWR crew for all their efforts, they’ve had a very busy weekend running so many cars, but they’ve done a terrific job.”
Barlow finished third in races one and three, and second in race two, highlighted by a breathtaking move around the outside of Kenny.
Among GWR’s Radical SR3 pilots, there were plenty of tales of triumph and woe. Peter Paddon and Chris Perini staged typically entertaining battles in the first two races, running on the fringe of the top five but a fuel pump glitch caused Paddon’s car to grind to a halt in race three.
Steve Champion finished ninth in race one, but spun on the opening lap of race two after contact from another competitor and was collected up the front. The GWR crew repaired his car overnight and he came from the rear of the 32-car field to 17th in race three.
Brianna Wilson enjoyed a consistent weekend with finishes of 11th, ninth and ninth in the three races, while Steve Roberts was stoked to achieve a personal-best lap time in his Radical SR8, dipping into the 1:33 bracket in race two.
Paul Braico was delighted to be back on the track in his Radical SR3, recording a best result of 10th in race one, while Phil Anseline, Sue Hughes and Michael Donnellan all enjoyed some fun battles.
With the mammoth Supersports weekend out of the way, GWR’s attention now turns to tin top racing, with the NSW Production Touring Cars in action at Sydney Motorsport Park next weekend.
