MacGregor cruises to victory in Taranis at Croft


Jonny MacGregor stormed through the field to take a well-deserved victory after starting at the back of the grid.

Driving the Taranis, he made a brilliant start and dominated the race only briefly losing the lead at the pit stops.

After a DNF in the first race it was a brilliant victory for the MacG Racing team, the Taranis showed great pace and was not affected by any reliability issues.

Andy Robinson finished a brilliant second place in the Ford Falcon 5000 albeit a full lap behind the eventual winners.

The A Robinson Autocentre ltd capitalised on reliability issues and timed their pit stop perfectly.

Robinson did receive a 20 second penalty for a pit stop infringement but the penalty did not affect the final result.

Winner of Race 1, Lance Gauld rounded off a brilliant day finishing on the podium in third place. The Porsche Cayman was relatively untroubled throughout the race but was unable to challenge the top two.

It was a huge disappointment for Andy Wilson and Philip Seaman in the Holden who made a lightning start from fifth to lead the opening four laps but suffered a reliability issue which put them out of the race.

After the retirement of the Holden it left seven cars to race until the end, with very little participates it meant there were limited overtaking opportunities.

The rain that affected the first rain did not return leaving the teams with less of a headache when it came to strategy decisions.

The final race of the weekend for the Dunlop GT & Production Championship at Croft was largely spread out and did not bring the excitement that was expected.
