Sieders Takes Lead In V8 Ute Series Opener

Sydney driver David Sieders started the 2014 V8 Ute Series in style with a flawless performance to win Race 1 of the V8 Ute Series – protected by HAWKEI at Adelaide’s Parklands Circuit today (Friday, Feb 28).

Sieders, starting from pole position, led the pack away while Adelaide’s Craig Dontas made a blinder of a start to slot into second. Reigning champ Ryal Harris and Kris Walton’s Rentco Ute traded places a number of times through the race before Harris out braked Dontas late in the race to move through to second.

Perth driver Adam Marjoram hit the wall through the notorious Turn 8 sweeper mid race, and failed to finish in the Auto One Holden, while veteran Kim Jane made up 15 places after starting from the rear of the grid to finish mid field.

Dontas held on to finish 3rd in the Thirst Camel Holden from Walton, Andrew Fisher, George Miedecke, Rhys McNally, Elliot Barbour, Jesse Dixon and Nathan Pretty.

Dixon’s Hayman Reese backed Holden also hit the Turn 8 sweeper, and was lucky to finish, while Marjoram extensively damaged the rear lower control arm.

“I started P6 so pretty happy with the car and its great coming to a new team with Erebus, I got up to P5 and got up to turn 8 and ran out of talent really and clipped the wall so that’s the day over for us,” said Marjoram.

Former Sydney Waratah Ben Dunn has been plagued with an electrical gremlin all weekend, and was on seven cylinders for most of the race, before a flat tyre ended his race in pit lane.

Sieders set the fastest lap on his way to the flag, and will start from 11th on the grid tomorrow following the reverse ballot draw, drawn by Sieders after today’s win.

“Pole, Race 1 win pretty happy now, it’s been two years since I’ve done that, the first two years, I came here I poled and had a race win and I’ve have two lean years since so I’m really happy,” said Sieders.

Adelaide ace Craig Dontas was pumped to finish 3rd on his home track and to be the first Holden home.

“It’s a pretty good feeling you want to perform your best at home so you do it in front of your family and friends,” said Dontas.

Wayne Wakefiled will start from Pole alongside Nathan Pretty to kick of Race 2 top 11 reversed grid race tomorrow, which will be at 9.25am, with the final race Sunday at 10:50am, which will be televised later in the day at 12:28pm (EDST) on 7Mate.
