Viso takes opening victory as SST kicks off 2015 season

1 Mins read

The 2015 SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Presented by Traxxas season is officially GO, and it was E.J. Viso who took the first win of the season in a convincing manner at the Clipsal 500 in Victoria Park.

10 SST Traxxas trucks lined up for the first race of the new season and Viso would start from sixth on the grid; as the race got under way the Venezuelian got to work straight away with some aggressive driving moving up the running order.

A mistake by former V8 Supercar driver Nathan Pretty who was leading the race left the door wide open for Viso to take the lead, from there on out he wouldn’t look back as he dominated the shortend five-lap event.

Robbie Gordon would try his best to catch Viso but had to settle for second best with SST newcomer Matt Mingay taking the final spot on the podium.

The Queensland native started the race in seventh place, just behind Viso and drove a conservative race as he stuck with teammates Keegan Kincaid and Sheldon Creed who both started on the last row but soon moved up through the order. A mistake on the final lap saw Kincaid and Creed touch in turn 13 with Mingay making the most of the situation, slipping in to third.

Kincaid and Creed would finish fourth and fifth respectively ahead of Toby Price and Brad Gallard. Bill Hynes would take eighth place ahead of Pretty who suffered from a mechanical failure on lap 3. Charles Dorrance was credited with tenth place but made an early exit from the race dut to an accident.
