BIG HITS AND BLUE SKIES AT JAMBOREE QUALIFYING

Date: 28/08/19

The qualifying action on day one at the 2019 Garrett Advancing Motion Brisbane Jamboree was full of big hits and excitement both on and off track under blue skies.

Anthony Briggs had a shocking crash, with a big slide into the left wall, rolling his Ford TF Cortina six times on the back running a personal best straight off the trailer. Briggs is now recovering in hospital but in good spirits.

In Factory Xtreme, Joe Signorelli ran a personal best of 6.099 at 238mph in his 2jz Celica and in Pro Compact Cory Abbott ran his first ever 200mph pass in his Mazda RX7.

Matt Mingay’s Hotwheels Stunt Gymkhana had their first qualifying sessions with 12 of the best drift car drivers in Australia battling it out on the purpose-built course in front of the grandstands full of screaming fans.

At the conclusion of qualifying the PWR Cash Boost was awarded to the racers with the three most consistent runs in qualifying across Factory Xtreme, Pro Turbo and Pro Compact categories. $1000 cheques will be presented to Sam Kiprios in Pro Compact, Jason Payne in Pro Turbo and Mark Jacobsen in Factory Xtreme.

The Jamboree crew also paid tribute to the memory of Darryl Marsh, with family and friends taking his race car down the track one last time and naming the extreme bracket trophy in his honour.
