It was exciting day for Aubin Brothers Racing at the Sydney Motorsport Park on the weekend, as team drive Kyle Aubin claimed his first ever class race win in the Australian Production Car Series.
Aubin finished 0.9133 ahead of Osborn Motorsport’s Tyler Everingham, to claim the class victory in race one on Saturday.
“It was awesome for him to get his first ever class win,” co-drive Blake Aubin said.
“It was a tense race and we could barely watch the finish.”
On the second race of the day, Blake took to the wheel but the race did not go to plan.
“The front right wheel came off. I snapped the studs off the wheel,” he said.
“It was a scary moment and we were working late into the night on Saturday to get the car ready.”
The car was ready to go come Sunday morning and Kyle drove the Renault Megane RS265 to a third place finish in his class.
“It was a great result considering the damage. We came out good,” Blake said.
“It was a good result and set us up nicely for the final race.”
Blake drove Aubin Brothers Racing to a third place finish in his class in the fourth race of the weekend.
He said there were plenty of positives from the weekend.
Blake also praised the circuit at Eastern Creek.
“It’s a great track. There’s some fast corners and some tight, technical sections,” he said.
“There was a few incidents on Friday but it made for a great challenge.
“We’ve raced there five times last year, so it’s kind of our second home track behind Mount Panorama.”
Aubin Brothers Racing will be back in action next month, at the Queensland Raceway from August 4-6.
That will be followed by a trip to Victoria to compete at Philip Island from September 8 to 10.
