FX 2013 – Round Three – Wakefield Park
— Allerton dominates Wakefield Park
Glenn Allerton, riding the NextGen Motorsport Di Candilo Steel City Pirelli BMW HP4, completed a clean sweep in Round 3 of Formula OZ at the FX Championship series at Wakefield Park.
Allerton had the BMW HP4 in its distinctive black livery, primed for the weekend. Competing in the unlimited Formula OZ class the HP4 was up against an array of high spec machinery but Allerton; in a perfect riding display took all that was on offer in sensational weekend racing.
Over the two days Allerton and the BMW HP4 were never headed. In a totally dominant performance it was pole position and six checkered flags from six races, along the way a new race lap record to go with the record-qualifying lap.
Allerton was delighted with the weekend’s results. “Wakefield Park is a new track for us and we did not have our complete team with us but the BMW HP4 was absolutely awesome. It was a perfect weekend. I could not be happier,” said Allerton.
NextGen Motorsport Principal Wayne Hepburn was also pleased with the weekend. ” It is always good to come away with a victory and Glenn’s performance speaks for itself. I could not have asked for more. The weekends FX Championship was also important for us as it is part of the qualifying criteria for the FX 500 ‘winner take all’ endurance race later in the year” said Hepburn.
Allerton will next be in action in Round 3 of the ASBK at Queensland Raceway on June 14-16.
