2013 – Island Magic (Phillip Island)

Phillip Island

It was a weekend of Highs and Lows for the teams that I was pit crewing for – the  Ace Car Removals and Harley Phelan Racing teams.

The weekend didn’t kick off to a good start, when Larry’s car was damaged shortly after arriving for practice. However, thankfully it was repairable, and it wasn’t long before he was out on track.

Starting on the front row for Race 1 was a new, and nerve racking experience. But Larry dominated, and lead the entire race.

“the best words I have heard in a long time, was when Kelli said on the radio ‘the chequered flag is waiting for you’ ”

Harley on the other hand, had drama’s, starting from the rear, and then retiring early due to an ongoing electrical gremlin.

Race 2, starting on pole, Larry led the first lap, but couldn’t hold off Harley Phelan who charged through from the rear to take the win, with Larry finishing in 2nd.

In Race 3, again starting on the front row, Harley took the lead, with Larry close behind. on lap 3 Harley made a mistake, and Larry took the lead, until lap 8, when he out braked himself going into Honda, and fell off the track, he managed to recover, and work his way back up to 5th. Harley took the win (and the big trophy).

This was by far, the best result for the both Harley Phelan Racing, and the  Ace Car Removals team to date.

Thanks to PIARC and Isola di Capri Restaurant & Gelateria for supporting the event.

And a big thumbs up to all the CAMS Officials, without your dedication, passion and hard work, Motorsport would not be possible.
