Rilats Hat trick – Reed’s dare
All Stars Media posted Monday February 15, 2016.
Flying in from the States only 5 days ago Travis Rilat again took line honours taking out the win for the Tyson Perez Memorial for the third year in a row.
With an emotional win Rilat acknowledged again that this is a very special show and he will continue to compete in it as long he can. He thanked the Seymour Team for again making this possible for him. “Lap traffic was starting to make it interesting and I was taking my time a bit and then I remembered the signal Tyson used to give me during a yellow light – he would indicate me to grow a set and get up high and go around the outside, so that’s what I did and it worked. This event truly is a great tribute to him.”
With an awesome drive young Jake Tranter came home in 2nd followed closely by Chris Solomon, Mark Caruso and Paul Solomon rounding out the top 5.
Tranter started the night well picking up the Oval Express Magazine Quick Time Award with an 11.188. He also locked in as high points and won the Pole Shoot Out dice with Matt Reed. This then gave him first option if he wanted to accept “Spuds Dare” and the chance to pick up $1000 if he finished on the Podium. He laughed but declined the offer and it was then given to Matt Reed and after minor discussion with his car owner decided to have a go with this. “Yep we will have a go”. Reed was well on his way to completing the dare after being up to P5 when engine failure forced him infield and denying him the chance of the cash.
Tranter lined up on Pole with Mark Caruso sitting in 2. Chris Solomon driving the Bartlett Auto’s SA75 started in 3 and USA29 Rilat in 4. Tranter got the start but after one lap the field had to stop after an incident that involved 7 cars blocking turn 2 and bringing on the reds to allow time to sort the cars out. Lumbar, Corey Lincoln, Lock and Newcombe all unfortunately having to sit on the infield to remainder of the race as a result.
Tranter lead for the majority of the race with Rilat sitting in 2nd until he found the right time and swooped past for the lead in the dying stages. Caruso was fast in 3rd with Solomon chasing him down. The minors were having their own race with lap traffic making the show interesting on a great race track that allowed passing. Paul Solomon, Ely, Bellman, O’Neil, Farrer, Gardiner all putting on a show for the crowd.
