> > A podium finish for Jesus Racing > Day 3 of the PROMAXX EXHAUSTS TA2 Muscle Car Series commenced with the first of two 10 lap races. Armed with new information after poring over the data from the day before, Andrew Fisher launched off the 3rd place grid box and slipped past Loscialpo in sector 2 into 2nd place, just as the safety car came out for an incident involving stablemate Scutella and another car. Green flag racing resumed with 5 laps remaining and Fishtail set off for the lead position with the fastest lap of the race. > > On the 3rd last lap through the last corner, Loscialpo dive-bombed the Jesus Racing Camaro causing light contact that sent Andrew spinning off the road. Fisher scrambled the car back onto the black stuff but tumbled down the field. He raced hard and managed to recover to 6th before the chequered flag. > > “The car felt really good and to do a 1 minute 38 second lap time with our worst tyre set of the weekend is encouraging. I do believe the Stewards are looking into the incident, but I think we have the car under me now capable of getting through the field in the last race.” remarked Fishtail after the race. > > A penalty was handed down promoting Ruth, the Jesus Racing Camaro, up to 5th. Andrew took advantage of a ripper start, moving up to 4th in the first few corners then into 3rd before the end of the first lap. Putting his head down Fisher went in pursuit of leaders again posting the fastest lap of the race before the safety car was called out. After a caution period the top 3 cars were again nose to tail with no one able to gain a clear advantage and get past. Finishing the race in 3rd gave the Jesus Race Team and Andrew Fisher some silverware for the weekend with 3rd place for the round. > > Standing on the podium Fisher commented, “What a great result for our first meeting back since the shutdown. I have been training really hard over the break and feel the fittest I have for a long time. Keeping my race craft sharpness up in the simulator has been good but to feel the forces on the body and the grip of the tyres under the car, there is nothing like it. > > I want to thank Craig, Cam, Frank and Nathan from Dream Racing for providing a great car and doing such a great job all weekend, we might have to do it again sometime!” > > In the meantime, the team will be waiting the arrival of their rebuilt engine having decided on doing some final development work on it. They are hoping to have it back by the middle of October so they can start preparing for the Touring Car Masters racing at Bathurst on the 12th to 15th of November.
