Fabcon Racing took a team of four drivers across three classes to their home round of the Victorian Golden Power Series! Taking place at the Gippsland Kart club where the team had done lots of laps, all drivers were looking for a strong result.
Isabel Rowe and Ryan Wyhoon were taking the start in KA4 Junior Heavy, Jamie Rowe in TAG 125 Light and Nick Popple and Jamie Rowe in KA3 Senior Light.
Rowe and Wyhoon hit the track for qualifying in the KA4 Junior Heavy with Rowe starting the weekend in hot form by putting her entry on the front row. Wyhoon was also inside the top 10 in position 9 but knew he had the pace to move forward. Rowe led the way in the heats with 2nd in heat 1, 3rd in heat 2 and a win in the final heat, putting her off pole position for the final. Wyhoon moved dramatically forward with 4th in heat 1 and 2, before coming home in 2nd in heat 3 to give the Fabcon Racing team a 1-2.
The final was a close and hard-fought race with both drivers in the front group. Rowe was able to come home and break through for her 1st Golden Power Series round victory! Wyhoon was able to come home on the podium in 2nd spot in an incredible 1-2 result for the Fabcon Racing team!
Jamie Rowe took to the start in the ultra-competitive TAG 125 Light class in a bumper field. Rowe had a mixed day on Saturday qualifying on the edge of the top 10 before position 11 in his only heat. Jamie made his way into the top 5 for heat 2 and looked ready to challenge! Rowe had a tough end to his weekend, not finishing the final heat and the final in the TAG 125 Light class.
Rowe was back out on track in KA3 Senior Light with Fabcon Racing stable mate Nick Popple. Rowe set a hot pace to put himself on pole position with Popple inside the top 5 in 5th position. Heat 1 was tough for both drivers with Rowe down in 6th and Popple not finishing the race. Both drivers were able to turn their results in the remaining heats, with Rowe grabbing both race wins and Popple not leaving the top 5 with a 4th in heat 2 and 5th in heat 3. Rowe put in a stellar performance in the final to grab the round victory and Fabcon Racing’s 2nd for the weekend! Popple put in another consistent performance coming home with his best result of the championship in 5th spot.
Fabcon Racing team manager Bryan Rowe spoke post weekend on the team’s double victory. “We came here competing in three classes and have walked away with 2 wins. Isabel has deserved this result for a while now and to have Ryan making it a 1-2 was awesome! Jamie had a tough weekend in the TAG but dominated KA3 Senior Light to take another win. Nick put in his best result of the series and we look forward to coming back again in 2023”.
