We’re now well underway in our first season of the Porsche Carrera Cup Championship. Three weeks ago we competed at the first round of Carrera Cup at the Clipsal 500 which resulted in a top 8 finish in our first ever Carrera Cup race. Last weekend we were at the Australian Grand Prix for Rd 2 finishing in the Top 10 on GP Sunday. We welcomed on board Forpark Australia and Australian Custom Moulders to our team and thank them very much for their support over the weekend. Please see the attached two releases from Rounds 1 and 2. Over the Grand Prix weekend we also were about of a very special wish for Anthony from the Make-A-Wish foundation. Attached is a photo of Anthony and I as well as some race pic. A big thanks to TRP, Porsche Centre Brighton, Bausele, Blackchrome, Torque Money, Stand21. We’re currently 10th in the Championship after the first two rounds. Our next race is at Phillip Island, Victoria 22 – 24 May. Fraser Ross

Fraser Ross was shown the light at the age of 10, his entry into the world of Motorsport that would ignite the spark and fire the engine of passion, for his love of racing and all things affiliated. Fraser Ross began racing Karts at club level and excelled rapidly, often winning club days at his various clubs, Oakleigh, Geelong and Go-Kart Club Victoria (Todd Road). He slowly moved through the classes and began to travel around the state of Victoria to the various tracks to compete in various classes (Rookies, Clubman, Leopard and Formula 100). Success was had and race kraft was beginning to form (his greatest asset to date) and it came a time when the step up needed to occur.

R-Code. R-Code was Frasers stepping stone out of the karting world and into the world of Motor Racing. R-Code is a complete nut and bolt replica (with many original and hard to come-by parts) of the very successful 1965 Shelby GT350 R, B Production Race car. R-Code was built by Frasers father (Ian Ross- a very successful historic racer in his own right). R-Code was lent to Fraser to transfer his learnings from Go-Karting to the real race track, where here Fraser would drive Regularity events and prove to be extremely fast in a car that even when compared to much more advanced cars was just as quick, Fraser could seriously drive!

Next came along the 1968 Drew Marget/ Jim Richards Ford Mustang. This car had proven to be in the past an absolute weapon. That it still is. Frasers entry into the Historic Touring Car World was very level headed. He never tried to show anyone up, never tried to ruin anybodies weekend- he showed the makings of a proper racer, a racer who showed respect for all of his competitors and a racer who could excel on the track. Fraser began his Historic Touring Car career at Phillip Island Historics 2010 (the biggest historic car race in the Southern Hemisphere), the car showed a few teething issues, yet once sorted Fraser made himself known. Frasers success quickly grew as he became a part of the car, race wins and round wins were now common and the season culminated in multiple club and state wins and awards in his rookie year.

2010 CAMS Victorian State Champion- Historic Touring Cars
2010 3501cc-5000cc HTCAV Club Champion
2010 HTCAV 2nd Overall Club Champion
2010 Norm Beechey Trophy Winner
2010 HTCAV Rookie of the Year
2010 Island Magic “Hornet Press” Pole sitter and Race Winner
2010 Winton Historics Youngest Driver Award

Looking forward now for the season in 2011, Fraser has already had a successful first half of the year. Phillip Island International Grand Prix Circuit still proves to be a favourite track for Fraser, with an un-official lap record for Historic Touring Cars, Multiple Pole Positions and Race wins. Phillip Island also proved to be another successful weekend with a large field of Historic Touring Cars, Fraser once again proved to be the dominant force to beat. May, saw Fraser head to Virginia International Raceway (the longest track in the USA) for SAAC 36. This event was a testament to Frasers driving ability. Having never seen the track before, in a car he had never driven, Fraser put the ’68 Mustang Trans-AM on the front row of the grid. The meeting was a very competitive field of numerous Shelby and Mustang “super cars” which made for a very fun, enjoyable and different motor racing experience for Fraser. Once back on home soil, Fraser successfully tested a Porsche GT3 Cup Car at Winton Motor Raceway (courtesy of Terry Knight), this experience was immensely exciting for Fraser posting extremely competitive lap times in the Porsche on a drying track. This experience was quite different compared to his normal historic mustang drive, but proved Fraser excels in all cars he steps into and adapts quickly to the difference in driving skills required.

2011 Un-official Historic Touring Car Lap Record (Phillip Island)
2011 Multiple Race Wins- Phillip Island Historics, Victorian State Round (Phillip Island) Multiple Race Wins
2011 Virginia International Raceway- SAAC 36 Qualified Front Row
Looking forward for the season upcoming events include; Shannons Sports and Muscle Car Showdown (Queensland Raceway), Winton Festival of Speed (Historic Touring Cars Endurance Race), Muscle Car Masters (Eastern Creek), Victorian State Round Races and Multiple more tests and driving experiences still to come.

FOUR DAYS OF THUNDER IN YEARS GONE BY


As the mist clears on the hills, and the fog dissipates on the mountains, the pit crew moves amongst the brooding muscle cars. Tire air pressure measurements are taken, explosive fuel is decantered in twenty litre lots, windows are cleaned and harnesses checked. The drivers are suiting up, fire resistant face wear like balaclavas encase their facades, the standards approved body vests, neck braces, racing suits and shoes, enclose them in a coccon. The thundering roar, and vibration, the smell of acrid fumes and Winton Raceway in central Victoria is about to come to life.

The heat of summer beats down from a clear Queensland sky and the rituals are repeated, Queensland Raceway is far away from the bustling city of Brisbane. The truck rolls on.

Eastern Creek, and Wakefield Park, in New South Wales, all packed up and ready to travel the big pantek truck takes its precious cargo on the road to arrive in another place. Unloaded and all dressed up the cars race through the city of Adelaide and out into the wine country of South Australia on the Porsche's run. March, and the sea sparkles like a jewel, hundreds of drivers, from Australia and around the world, and a myriad of cars and tens of thousands of people, squint out into the ocean, they have gathered to watch the Phillip Island Historic Grand Prix.

This is world of a high adrenalin rush as the cars sweep into corners at just under 180kms and then rush down the straight at over 200kms, up to 300 kilometres +, depending on the length and standard of the track and the particular car.

From the dedicated enthusiast who runs an historic Austin 7, or an MG, on a budget, to the multicar transporting panteks, bringing the muscle machines to thousands of people who gather at different tracks, in different locations, and states of Australia, or in a different country, this is the world of Historic Motor and Grand Prix Racing.

"THE BOYS ARE COMING TO TOWN


What do you do when you have successfully raced karts and you want to take the next rung up the ladder? Do you take the traditional route and go Formula Ford, maybe Formula 2 and then, if you are serious, either head overseas to seek fame and fortune, or go the route to a V8 Supercar? Well, if you are Fraser Ross and you are six foot four (in the old measurements) and weigh 80 kilos, open wheelers are really not an option. But, how do you go the Supercar route? The answer, if you are the son of historic racer Ian Ross is simple - you go the club route and historic racing. After a few years in karts and rapidly getting too big for the little racers where it is generally the jockey sized who win, Fraser Ross at age 19, put his toe in the water and started competing in historic regularity events in his father's replica Shelby Mustang....

Then, this year Dad purchased the ex Jim Richards/Drew Marget 1968 Mustang a 530 bhp monster and threw his son into the deep end….and did the lad swim! Actually, it was not as hard as I thought it would be. The regularity events have helped enormously, so it did not take me long to find my feet with the Mustang,” says Fraser. The younger Mr. Ross competed in the State series and won the CAMS Victorian State Circuit Racing Championship for historic touring cars, a four round series. His points winning margin was 68.

The highlights of his year were finishing 4th at the Shannons Muscle Car Showdown at Queensland Raceway and a 3rd at the Father and Son Day Australian Muscle Car Masters meeting at Eastern Creek against 80 plus Group N Cars. Fraser is now also competing in Historic racing's Group N and together with Dad, will feature at the upcoming "Return of the Thunder", sponsored by Shannons, Penrite and CoolDrive at Sandown on November 7 & 8."

Group S, normally sees an all-Porsche battle out front, however, this weekend there was only 3 on hand with Bob Fraser in his 1977 Porsche 911 taking the honours, He was chased by Colin Dodds 1967 MG Midget, George Nittis 1996 Shelby Mustang, Laurie Burton 1969 TVR Tuscan and Greg Thomson 1975 Porsche 911, swapping places throughout the weekend. Both George Nittis and Greg Thomson won the last two races because the attrition rate became worse as the weekend progressed.

Another mixed group was the Q&R Sports and Racing, where Formula Ford had 17 competitors on the track. Ross Hodgson in a 1974 Birrana won all the races as he was chased by Kevin Lewis in 1986 Cheetah Ransburg in race one, with Justin McClintock in a 1983 Galloway Clubman second in race two. Race three saw Justin push Ross around the circuit to cross the line 1.5 seconds behind, Phillip Verwoert in the 1972 Graduate M8F, blew his engine in race one, to come back to finish third."
