McMahon completes Group A&C Touring Cars rout



31 MAR - 03 APR 2016

Nissan Skyline driver Carey McMahon has swept his way through the Group A&C Touring Car Revival races at the 2012 Formula 1 Qantas Australian Grand Prix.

In today’s shortened six-lapper, McMahon simply began where he left off yesterday, taking maximum advantage of pole position and streaking away from the start, eventually winning by 13.58 seconds ahead of Tony Stapleton (Holden Commodore TWR).

Luke Ellery (Skyline) was third, after finishing second behind McMahon in the opener.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend,” said McMahon. "The car didn’t miss a beat and I stayed out of trouble the whole time, so all in all I am very happy.

“And to win in front of a huge Sunday F1 crowd is just fantastic.”

Today’s outing was certainly a more processional affair than race one, but one driver was bucking the trend – David Holc (Commodore TWC).

Holc was forced to start the race from the rear of the grid after a DNF in race one, and then started picking off other drivers at will, eventually slicing his way into the top 10 by lap three.

From there his progress was slowed, but he still managed to finish the race in fourth, five seconds behind Ellery.

And Holc also denied McMahon the full suite of accolades for this weekend by setting the fastest lap of the race – 2:11.2284.

Ross Donnelley (Ford Sierra) and Craig Neilson (Mitsubishi Starion) finished in fifth and sixth positions.
