WITH TWO wins and a second placing Travis Lindorff has won the opening round of the DIAL BEFORE YOU DIG Australian Super Six Touring Car Series at Sandown over the weekend of March 28-29.


It was an all Victorian podium with Lindorff’s Pakenham Tyres Rowse Motors Holden Commodore VT finishing ahead of current title holder Gavin Ross (Carpet Shed VT) and Harley Phelan (Kleenduct VT) while Division Two honours went with Queenslander Ashley Jarvis and his Lighthouse Electrical Ford Falcon AU.

A great first-up start from Lindorff in race one enabled him to hold the lead throughout first race, held midway through Saturday on a busy program. Lindorff had to borrow the spare gearbox from fellow competitor Chris Lillis after dramas in qualifying.

Ross hit back in the second race late Saturday afternoon, in front for nearly all the race. Lindorff had the lead initially but contact with Hills put Pakenham Tyres, Rowse Motors VT out. Grice took over second spot and pressured Ross for several laps until the Hinde Transport VT became locked in fifth gear and retired. Hills finished second before being excluded for contact with Lindorff, who fought back to second after being as low as 13th on the opening lap.

Grabbing the lead from the outset, Lindorff was an all-the-way winner in the Sunday morning third race, finishing just ahead of Ross who he had to fend off throughout. Phelan held third for the first four laps until passed by Grice who started at the rear of grid. Grice had gearbox issues in race 2 and these would return to haunt him shortly after, slowing his pace in the second half.


Phelan retrieved his third ahead of Hills who was another coming from the rear. On the way to fourth, Hills undercut Tim Rowse’s long-standing lap record. Sixth went to Lillis ahead of Jarvis, another rear of grid starter Tabinor, Gill and Chivas.
