Jack Phelan is the man to beat going in to this weekend’s fifth round of the NSW Production Sports Car championship at Wakefield Park. Coming off the back of a strong eighth position at the last round at Sydney Motorsport Park, Phelan will be looking to gain valuable championship points as some rivals elect to sit out the round in the NSW Southern Highlands. While Jack will be looking to secure championship points, class A rival Tadros Zallous in his Ferrari 360 will no doubt be searching to make life as difficult as possible for the Porsche driver.
In class B the racing will be as tight as ever. Traditionally this is a track where Nissan Silvia driver Mark Stinson punches above his weight and scares a few of the class A drivers. After a difficult run last time out at Sydney Motorsport Park he’ll be looking to have a clean sprint weekend and solidify his title charge. Though his class B compatriots, Glenn Townsend and Arthur Magaitis, will be looking to spoil the party and take up their battle where they left off at Sydney. Their thrilling dice last round saw the pair swap positions while also battling the pack around them. Both will be seeking redemption this weekend after ultimately being forced out of the Sydney event with mechanical problems.
Throw into the mix newcomers Nik Prieston (Porsche 944S2), Gordon Campbell (Prb Clubman) and Peter Coulter (Porsche 924 Turbo) and you can be sure the racing is going to feature some very intense battles.
