Supashock Suspension Dominates Shannons Nationals at Phillip Island

Supashock has once again proven to be the suspension package of choice in Australia’s most competitive national motor racing series, with Supashock-fitted cars claiming round victories in the three feature categories in the Shannons Nationals Motor Racing Championships at Phillip Island on the weekend.

Greg Crick took out Round 2 of the Australian GT Championship, qualifying on pole position, finishing fourth in Race 1 and winning Race 2. According to Crick, the Supashock Suspension in his Dodge Viper was the main factor behind his excellent performance.

“Supashock was the reason we won the race,” he said. “When the two cars in front of me started to go off and start skating around the track, my car was just starting to come good, which just shows that the Supashock dampers really look after the tyres.”

In the GT Trophy Class, Andrew Taplin won the round driving the Supaloc Racing Lamborghini Gallardo GT3, also fitted with Supashock Suspension. Taplin is now just four points behind the leader in the overall GT Trophy standings.

In the Australian Manufacturers Championship, Garry Holt and Ryan McLeod drove their Supashock-suspended Mitsubishi Evo X to the round win, with second and first-place finishes in the pair of one-hour races.

“The Supashock Suspension allowed us to run a softer tyre, which is why we won the race,” McLeod said.

Kerry Bailey extended his lead in the Australian Sports Sedan Championship by winning two of the three races, and the round, in his beautiful Aston Martin DBR9, which also uses Supashock technology.

Despite pressure from some of Australia’s fastest sports sedans (including Darren Hossack’s Audi A4 and Tony Ricciardello’s Alfa Romeo, rebuilt after it was severely damaged in a fire at the previous round), Bailey’s Aston Martin handled the testing Phillip Island conditions with aplomb all weekend, demonstrating that the Supashock Suspension is not only suited to a wide variety of conditions, it also delivers the same responsive handling characteristics in a diverse range of vehicles from GT cars to production cars and even purpose-built, space-frame sports sedans.
