Andrew Gillott takes 2wd Australian title

Andrew Gillott takes 2wd Australian title

TLR and OMP driver Andrew Gillott has taken the 2013 Modified 2WD EP Australian National Title over the weekend. The Nationals were held in the regional city of Mildura, Victoria, with a fantastic high grip track prepared by the host club and perfect weather throughout proceedings. Gillott took the top qualifying position in the fourth and final round of qualifying with Josh Pain, Ashley Peeler, Matt Griffen and Ray Munday all vying for TQ leading into the final round. The TQ was important leading into the A-finals given the tight and flowing nature of the Mildura facility. Josh Pain had consistent pace all weekend and was always going to make the win harder for Gillott particularly with nerves of P1 in the first leg of the finals, however he managed to hold the lead for the full 5-minutes and take A1. Gillott then managed a fast start in A2 to secure the win in a comfortable victory in the second leg of the three main finals series. Final results saw first place going to Andrew, second to Josh Pain and third place to Ashley Peeler.

Thanks to Andrew Gillott for the report.
