OPENING MEETING


Well,

The NLW Racing Team headed to Kihikihi, for their Opening Meeting.

There were 16 Ltd Saloons on hand to contest the Ford Sponsored "Early Bird Series".

I drew grid 2 for the first race on a track that was perfect EXCEPT for a rather large puddle of water on the exit of turn 2. To cut a long story short, I caught the edge of the puddle on lap 3 and with the "encouragement" of the car behind I was spun out in front of 13 cars going hard. This caused a massive pile up resulting in the front of my car being badly damaged and another cars front end being completely destroyed.

ON THE TRAILER I WENT!

I feel that this incident was completely avoidable due to a lack of action by infield officials during the Sprint car & Mini Sprint warm up. This puddle could of been dispersed then, but wasn't!

Some would say that's racing?????????????

See ya...
