January 23, 2020 – Starting with a strong grid and a wild race at Adelaide’s street circuit in the Supercars, the Thursday night NARS Winter Series is now underway. With one of the largest grids any NARS Series has seen in a while, Group A’s Elliot Budzinski took the pole position by over 1.2 seconds and went on to win the race. Elliot was followed onto the Group A podium by the always fast Norm Graf followed by Tyler Alan. Group B was won by Tom Nasella in a sterling but careful drive. Behind Tom was David Anderson and Paul Ibbotson to round out the Group B podium. Adelaide walls proved to be the greatest competitior and there were multiple heartbreak crashes in the final 2-3 laps after drivers had completed (almost) all of the 60 minute race. Some competitiors gambled a bit too much on the fuel tank and ran out of fuel in the last couple turns. It is hoped that some experiments with race settings will help to maintain excitement – and participation – through the 9 race series.
