                          RACE REPORT
♦    Fri SEPT 8th         Sponsored by DICANDILO STEEL CITY
                          In what should have been a day for consolidation for many riders in the
     Entries Close        DiCandilo Steel City State Road Racing Championships, in reality it turned
     Rd 5                 into a day of destruction for many riders.
                          The weather was good , the track conditions fine but the day went horribly
                          wrong for a number of competitors.
♦    Sun SEPT 24          Unfortunately three were transported to hospital - #10 Tony Milner with a
                          fractured leg, now in plaster and discharged from hospital on Wednesday.
     Tuning Day +         #88 Chris Galbraith has a complicated wrist injury and underwent his 2nd
     Novice Group         operation on Thursday. Best wishes to these two for a full recovery. The
     Racecraft            third transport was Ben Henry who suffered concussion and was released
                          Sunday night. #89 Josh Trigwell suffered a # wrist and is now in plaster
                          and at home in Bunbury. #77 Adam Senior and #48 Adrian Mettam are
                          also on the injured list both suffering a crack in the humerus near the

     12—4pm               turned to the pits under their own steam.
     Bookings             A total of 18 riders fell during the day—lets hope that number is not re-
     essential.           peated again. We wish you all a quick recovery and hope that the repair
                          bills are not too expensive.

In the Steel Blue Superbike Championship the first race was declared after the second red flag with
only two laps completed. First to go down was Chris Galbraith (Weld West Chapman’s Suzuki) at the left
hander then from the restart Matt Battista (BHS Five Star Yamaha) high sided also at the left hander and
in the wash up Ben Stronach (SMB Suzuki GSXR 1000) was awarded the win and all finishers were
given half points as less than 75% of the race had been completed ( and also after 2 red flags a race can-
not be restarted). Steelblue Team riders Russell Nash (Yamaha R1) was hot on his heels with Tom Hat-
ton (Yamaha R1) third. Hatton unfortunately DNF’d on lap 1 in the final race with Alderson crashing out
heading out of the Basin on the last lap of Race 3.
In the final two races Stronach and Nash put on some spectacular racing with the lead swapping many
times before Nash won the second race by .8sec and then the third by .51sec. Whilst Nash might have
won the day ,Stronach is still in a commanding position for his first State Championship with a 60 point
advantage over second placed Alan Watts (Yamaha R1) who in turn has a 7.5 point lead over third place
Wayne Smith (Honda CBR 1000). Mark Schnierer was the highest placed B grader on the day with Joel
Reynolds the highest placed C grader.

Welcome to another 4 new competitors : #20 Cameron Keevers (Superstock), #50 Tony Brewster
(TZ250), #87 David Callaghan ( (Superstock) and #112 Graham Craig (Superstock)
Tanks to those extra volunteers that helped out last race day— Tracey Mineham who marshaled, Office
helpers—Gail Craig (who’s son was having his first ride), Bev Petrie (wife of racer John), Nicole Harwood
in Timing and Tanja Neuffer who helped on the Grid.

In closing we ask that all members give some thought to the role of marshals and how im-
portant they are to making the events actually happen on the day. Our marshals are cur-
rently low in numbers and this in turn makes the job extra hard on the day for those volun-
teers that do turn up to stand on a corner from 9am in the morning to end of racing (4.30—
5pm). We urge all members, especially those that are not competing to volunteer for at
least one meeting a year and share the load. Without marshals the racing will not happen.
If you think that you or your mate could give us a day—maybe the final State round and or
the Kings of Wanneroo—please give the office a call on 9409 1002 or our new Acting Chief
Marshal Troy Honey 0429685701.         SEE FLAG MARSHALS REPORT Page

Flag Marshal’s Race Report Round 4
G’Day Guys and Girls,

Wow, what a day.
It’s Troy Honey here—your current Acting Chief Flag Marshal.
My first attempt at the Chiefs position certainly did put me to the
test. But due to your support—we held it together.
You Guys were great, top team effort by all.
We had it all thrown at us at Round 4. Sand all over the track from all the rain prior to the event,
new flag positions and numbers, no track marshals in the sand and lets just say—quite a few in-
cidents to deal with on top of it all.
I thought it was great how you all accepted the changes so well and for turning up despite not
knowing how the weather would turn out. But that’s what marshalling is all about—giving your
time under any circumstances and conditions...the most precious thing a person can give.
Thank you to all the racers for your patience throughout the day and I hope everyone returns to
race at Round 5, fit, healthy and ready to race.

We cannot go on without a special mention here to 2 people who give so much to the club and
help us Marshal’s out at every round, and that is, Frank and Anita. Frank keeps a close eye on
what goes on up the hill and in the basin and gives his view to race control to help us deal with
incidents promptly. Anita (helped by Barb and Hilary) prepares all our lunches and beverages
throughout the day and I know all marshals are really appreciative of this.
To all marshals—Let’s keep getting the team working closely together and give everyone the
best finish to the season ever.

Troy Honey
