You Bundy Beauty, Mcconville Wins V8 Ute Race One At Winton

He had to wait two and half hours to get it, but Holden hero Cameron McConville eventually savoured the spoils of victory this afternoon after winning Race One of the Auto One V8 Ute Series- protected by Armor All, at Winton Motor Raceway, Saturday, 17th November.

McConville sped his Bundaberg Rum, Walkinshaw Performance prepped SS Commodore to an all the way in the 10 lap event that was re-run after the original attempt to conduct the race was postponed.

The original race was halted after a multiple car crash on the opening lap took out Jason Gomersall, Ben Kavich, Warren Millet, Hayley Swanson and Noel Edge.

Gomersall’s car was spun after contact with Warren Millet and Ben Kavich with the iseek car left stranded mid track and being struck heavily by the hapless Noel Edge.

Hayley Swanson also wound up in the wreck with contact to the stricken car of Ben Kavich.
The impact to his driver’s door knocked Jason Gomersall’s briefly unconscious but fortunately he was talking with crash officials shortly after.

“I don’t recall much about the crash itself,” Gomersall’s admitted later, “I know I got turned around by somebody and the next thing I’m talking with crash officials. It must have been a pretty big hit because the car is a write off. I’m fine right now but I’m pretty sure I’m going to be sore tomorrow.”

Officials deemed the event a ‘no race’ and rescheduled it for after the V8 Supercar race later this afternoon.

So it was “Take 2” and Cameron McConville sped away from fellow V8 Supercar identity Jason Bargwanna, David Sieders and Tom Williamson to lead the still sizeable field.

Establishing a lead that would never be erased McConville cruised to victory by 2.2 seconds over a starring debut from Jason Bargwanna in second place driving the Auto One Wildcard #100 SS Holden and David Sieders coming home in third in the Sieders Racing FG Falcon.

Indeed the top six had a distinctly V8 Supercar flavour with three of those positions filled by drivers with Supercar pedigree – Nathan Pretty hustling the #56 Monster Energy SS to fifth at the fall of the chequers.

Kris Walton brought his Rentco FG Falcon home in sixth ahead of Sean Carter’s Sucker Punch Energy Drink #82 SS in a career-best to date seventh place, Andrew Fisher (Jesus All About Life FG) eighth, Kim Jane (Adrenalin SS) ninth and Jack Elsegood (Hustler Lawn Equipment FG) rounding out the ten.

Kim Jane’s day could have and should have been better.

“We had clutch problems,” he explained, “we could have easily been a top five proposition but I couldn’t hang on. Later in the race the problem seemed to be a little better but I’d let several guys get through by then.”

Craig Dontas too was bitterly disappointed, running wide late in the race and off the track in his Thirsty Camel Commodore and losing several positions in the process whilst placed in the top twelve at the time – he eventually finished 16th.

Series leader Ryal Harris was a disappointing twelfth in his LCE FG Falcon after struggling to come back from an original 14th position starting spot after qualifying.

With his second place in the race today and Harris’ 12th place finish, (second in the series) David Sieders now closes to within 17 points of the Championship lead.
The margin at the start of the weekend was 38.

Winner Cameron McConville drew the ‘inversion marble’ after the race and pulled number #18 – a situation that now places Ben Kavich on pole position tomorrow in his Workhorse Collision Repairs FG Falcon alongside Gerard McLeod’s #50 Macmahon Mining & Construction SS for the second race of the weekend.

Races two and three will be held tomorrow – Sunday, November 18 – to conclude the seventh and penultimate round of the 2012 Auto One V8 Ute Series protected by Armor All.
