Sherrin Racing has walked away from Winton Motor Raceway having significantly cut the points lead of their nearest rivals in the Jacuzzi Spas Australian Production Cars at the weekend.
Brothers Grant and Iain Sherrin brought home the #1 Sherrin Racing BMW M4 in third place on Saturday and fourth place on Sunday while their nearest title rivals struggled with mechanical issues.
As a result, the brothers tied for third in the round rankings and made considerable gains in the points standings with two rounds now remaining on the APC calendar.
“It was a really fun weekend out there and to come away with a good swag of points while cutting down the margin to the leaders is something we are really happy about,” Grant Sherrin explained.
“The car was fantastic all weekend and the racing was great as well – who would have thought that in four hours of racing you would have only one safety car!”
The Sherrins came ‘oh so close’ to making it a pair of third place finishes, crossing the line on Sunday just a car length behind the third-placed Lotus of Tony and Kyle Alford who were the only entry to not complete a pit stop over the two-hour proceedings.
“We thought that he was going to do a pit stop so we weren’t worrying too much about chasing him down there until around 15 minutes to go when we realised, he wasn’t going to stop!” explained Iain Sherrin.
“I put the foot down and started taking time out of him then, but we just ran out of track time. If we had more laps, I think we could have challenged for that third place.
“Even so, it was a fun weekend out there and championship wise it was very profitable for us. I can’t wait to get to Sydney Motorsport Park for round four and see what else we can do to maybe get ourselves to the top of that points ladder!”
Sherrin Racing will now turn its attention to round four of the Jacuzzi Spas Australian Production Cars, to be held at Sydney Motorsport Park in less than three weeks across September 21-23.
