First race win and podium for McLeod in the top end

Gerard “Maverick” McLeod and the McLeod Racing team have had their best ever round result in the Australian V8ute Championship with a 2nd place overall at last weekend’s Sky City Triple Crown at Darwin’s Hidden Valley Raceway for round 3 of the series. 

McLeod got a fantastic start in the opening laps of Saturday’s race 1 and slipped into 8th position by the end of the third lap and began a battle with Kim Jane, finishing a credible 7th overall at the end of the 12 laps. 

Sunday’s reverse grid draw for race 2 saw McLeod start from position 2 next to Ford driver Jeremy Gray. McLeod got a blinding start and led into the first corner and was never threatened for the lead comfortably taking his first ever V8ute race win with a dominant performance. 

McLeod started the final race of the weekend from pole position and with a very good chance of not only his first V8ute podium but also taking out the round win. Another outstanding start saw McLeod lead into the first turn and set off into the distance. A mid race safety car period to recover a damaged ute bunched the field back up and left McLeod to defend his lead from Ford driver Chris Pither for the final lap of the race. 

McLeod defended the Ford perfectly on the final lap but Pither was able to sneak up the inside with a bold move on the final corner. This set up an amazing door handle to door handle, Ford vs Holden drag race to the finish line. McLeod lost the win to Pither by 0.006 seconds making it the closest race win the history of v8utes. McLeod finished a career best 2nd overall for the round and now sits 7th in the championship standings.

Starting from the second row of the grid, McLeod went into the third and final race with a good chance of taking the round win if he could secure a win. After a fierce battle, a slight error in turn 7 and tyres lacking grip it came down to the last lap where McLeod was edged out of the top 3, finishing in 4th position.

Look at him go

Allow me to introduce the youngest team member of RYCO 24•7 Rutherford in NSW. Tristan Barber has won two trophies piloting his C grade Junior Dragster, the 1st trophy was for an encouragement award and second was for best reaction time for the meeting. Best reaction time was against all competitors. His reaction was a 0.005sec this is his first year of driving and he has completed a couple of test days with the car and also the Gunnedah meeting. So far his best time over the 1/8 mile (200mtrs) is a 12.15 at 82km/h. Tristan is 9 years old and absolutely loves the experience. He is showing a technical understanding of the mechanics of both the car and racing well above his age. Dad and mum are both very proud of his progress so far. Tristan attends Wirreanda Primary School. His school made a comment about how racing has changed him. "In a good way", he has shown more confidence in himself and it has brought him out of his shell. Tristan races at both Sydney Drag way and Gunnedah but will be travelling up and down the east coast racing. He is one cool kid alright and wait till you see what his dad is up to.
