Longhurst proves his staying power in Canberra 400.

Tony Longhurst yet again proved his consistency for Team Betta in both races today.

Race two of twenty five laps, saw Tony avoid the mayhem that claimed many of the other drivers in the race.

Driving at a very consistent pace throughout the race the race, Tony brought car 66 home in fifth position with a fastest time of 1:46.48.

The conditions out on the circuit were fast and furious, particularly in the opening stages of race two said Tony.

The car ran very well and afforded us a lot better handling through the corners than was experienced in Darwin at the last round.

I think we are really getting on top of the set-up problems we have been experiencing in recent times and believe we will perform even better at Barbagallo in the next round said Tony.

Canberra's circuit is very hard on the cars, the curbs are quite high and tend to take their toll on the front suspensions of the race cars, most teams will have very high repair bills after this event, but that's the nature of the sport I guess.

Race three realised a twelveth placing for Tony's car 66, giving him a very consistent round indeed, whilst bringing the race car home in one piece.

Max Wilson driving the second Team Betta Electrical car65 was not so lucky with this round, experiencing handling problems in both races.

Race two saw Wilson finish in 17th position, after starting 30th on the grid.

In race three Wilson was circulating constantly in fourteenth position until lap 40 when the front suspension broke sending into the wall and out of the race.

Max was greatly disappointed with the outcome of race three, however he is now looking forward to round six at Barbagallo in WA. in three weeks also.
