The second round of the 2011 Shannons Nationals provided the strong Mallala crowd with some outstanding action on a day where the series favourites made things look very difficult.
In the Porsche GT3 Challenge Cup, a strong challenge by Jeff Bobik (Creative Colour 997) on day one for the second round of the Jim Richards Endurance Trophy ended in race two after the Victorian made contact with reigning champion Roger Lago (Falocn Property Group 997). Bobik was penalised, which dropped him from first to
ninth, handing surprised local Keith Wong (ULX 110 Blend Oils 997 GT3 RS) the victory.
In the final race Bobik started off pole to take the win, but with a trio of second placed finishes to his name, Roger Lago took the round victory.
The Shannons Nationals now prepares for round three of the championship at Winton Motor Raceway on the June 24-26 weekend, where the Kerrick Sports Sedan Series will be joined by the Radical Australia Cup, the Swift Racing Series, Commodore Cup, Saloon Cars and the debut event for the new ProSports class.
