Greg Crick has again demonstrated the superiority of the Supashock Suspension system by taking pole position for Round 1 of the Australian GT Championship in Adelaide in his Supashock-equipped Dodge Viper.

After adopting the Supashock setup during the 2011 season, Crick has achieved a number of pole positions, fastest laps and race wins, and has added to his tally this weekend.

In the Supaloc Racing garage, Andrew Taplin put in an outstanding performance to qualify sixth outright and first in the GT Trophy class, more than a second faster than the next fastest car in the class.

Kevin Weeks qualified his Ford GT in position eight. Unfortunately, the qualifying performance was marred by a broken axle, following on from a similar mechanical problem in practice yesterday.

“Kevin just didn’t get a clear lap on his first set of tyres, and then when he changed to a new set of tyres, he was going to get a clear lap but then the axle broke on the Turn 2 kerb,” Supaloc Racing Technical Director Oscar Fiorinotto explained.

The axle problem will be repaired in time for tomorrow evening’s one-hour race and Weeks will now have the advantage of a shorter compulsory pit-stop compared to those who outqualified him.
