The South Australian Motor Racing Championship’s Circuit Excel series concluded at the fourth and final round of the “Master of Mallala” race series (sponsored by Franks Towbars and Exhausts) at Mallala Motorsport Park on Saturday 12th November.
Poor track condition saw lap times well below those of the previous round for the entire field, but the top 5 consisted of the usual drivers from the previous rounds, with Asher Johnston again clean sweeping the round with pole and victory in all four races. Shaun Pannowitch and Danny Errigo swaped and shared the podium positions for the majority of the races, with Martyn Butler and Paul Falco the only other individual podium placers across the day.
At the conclusion of the day’s and season’s racing, it was Asher Johnston who was crowned 2016 champion, with a large points lead over runner-up team mate Shaun Pannowitch, Martyn Butler third with a narrow points lead over Danny Errigo (who only debuted at Round 2), and the consistent Paul Falco rounding out the top 5.
Full Round 4 results are available via Natsoft, and official and complete season standings will be published on our Championship Standings page when released by the Sporting Car Club of SA.
