2015 Southland Entry Form


17th January- NZPBA Nationals Lakeland Regatta - 4.15pm


Formula One Race 3 start Nick coles on the inside from Luke Sharp, Julian Stilwell and Derek McAdam.

Bit of a long and Drama packed day today, GP boats ever so reliable yesterday were dropping like flies in the first heat won by Jack Lupton from Scott Coker with no other finishers. The Boss had a Prop break, Lucas Oils and Steeler both stopped on the same turn and Warwick stopped as well.
In Heat 2 just the 4 boats started with Warwick pulling out on Lap 1, Jack was in front but came to a halt on lap 2. Steeler stopped just short of lap 3 but got going again to cross the line a Lap down. Scott's win gives him the NIGP and Master of Mangakino Titles with Jack in 2nd and Steeler in 3rd unofficially.

Drama in F1 on lap 3 of the first Heat Julian Stilwell fighting hard to pass Luke Sharp took out the Top Turn Buoy. The drivers agreed as part of the series to count the race with a penalty lap given to Julian dropping him to Last. Luke won from Derek and Nick Coles. In Race 2 it was Derek Mcadam had a good lead into the bottom turn of Lap 6 when he rolled on the turn and went upside down, he got himself out and was ok, the boats a little bit broken but should be good to go at Karapiro round. Only Luke and Julian would be credited as finishers in that race.

The Juniors had a moment on the Start when Jenny nose dived and sunk the driver was ok though. Two Junior races and 2 Clubmans during the day saw some good racing involved in both classes with plenty of boats on the water.

the NI GNH was won by Mike Harvey in Aquanaut winning both heats over Foreno Tapware and possibly New Obsession or Endorphin Rush in 3rd.

16th January- NZPBA Nationals Lakeland Regatta - 5.00pm


I was running the Flags today so Almost no Photos at all today if you search facebook im sure you will find some

.
Clubmans:
Heat one was was one by Zack Weller Addicted over Shady Racing and Black Sheep. The same drivers were up there in Heat two they ran 14 boats in the heats and they were surprisingly Spread out. Zack Weller is sure to have locked in the Clubmans Title with his two wins but the minor places are up to the points.

Series 3000:
Was a very competitive group of boats in Heat 1 Buckshot and Flatout were locked in a nose to nose battle the whole race but sadly Brent Frampton in Flatout was only taking the first two buoys of a three buoy turn so he was DQ. Noeline and Alan Stiener also had a close race Alan in Aftershock was quick in the first heat to finish 2nd and Noeline just behind in 3rd.
In Heat two Buckshot was out to an easy win Noeline only just missed beating Alan for third and brent come home 4th.
Mike Robinson in Buckshot will win the title over Alan in Shockwave and Noeline in Misty Blue.

Juniors:
Some very close racing in this class and The Rat Attack boats were fast with Cody winning the two heats, Karl had a spin in each race which cost him points. Ethan from Southland in the Greyhound came second in heat 1 and a 4th in heat two. The Outboard Marine came 4th in heat 1 and 2nd in Heat 2. Blast Off from New Brighton was unlucky to miss Heat 1 and not get on the plane. in heat 2 he finished in 6th. There were 7 Juniors racing Luke Buttimore in Spider didnt get running and Wade Dunlop in Problem Child broke the Transom in a very early morning Test session.

Pro Stock:
Easy two Heat wins to Victory with Chucky's Toy in Second and Alan Stiener in Misty Blue getting 3rd place.

Pro Com:
Heat 1 and no boats finished. Richard Smith in Miss Print broke the steering and Victory and and Chucky's Toy thought the race was red flagged and returned to shore so the were DQ
In Heat two Miss Print again broke the Steering and Victory won over Chucky's' Toy

Modified Hydroplane:
Both Heats won were easy wins to Foreno Tapware. Endorphin Rush was taking it easy in heat one to finish in the minor places but was flying in heat 2 getting faster with each lap to get second New Obsession seemed to have engine issues and wasn't at its best. Undertaker ran great and may have done enough to pick up 3rd overall. Midnight was second in heat 1 but broke his hull and missed heat 2 Toxic didnt front for Heat 2 either.

GNH:
Aqua Naught was too good for Renegade in Heat 1. Renegade then came to a stop on the last lap but managed to creep over the line ahead of Foreno Tapware and Undertaker. In Heat 2 Renegade was out with Broken Valves so AquaNaut won over Foreno Tapware and Undertaker which will be the results for the Title.

Official Results Later tonight or Early in the Morning


16th January- NZPBA Nationals Lakeland Regatta - 4.00pm
Racing over
today. Official Results after the Prizegiving.


Heat 2 of the GP has just finished this race also doubled as the King of the Nationals as there were no other boats willing to go into the event.
Jack Lupton and Ken Lupton were at it together for lap 1 before Jack pulled away to win. The best race was for second with a hard charging Scott Coker using the inside line to pass David Alexander and Warwick Lupton on Lap 2 and then chase down Ken Lupton, Scott got close but Ken just piped him on the line. Warwick pulled out on lap 3 back to the pits and David finished 4th with the Boss running poorly to finish last. Jack Lupton would have finished first in NZGP over Ken Lupton and Scott Coker

North Island Series 3000 was run today with Noeline Stiener in Misty Blue finishing in 1st over Brent Frampton unfortunately Buckshot and Shockwave failed to fire on the start and didnt make it. The championship was called on the first race.
THIS RACE IS UNDER A QUESTIONMARK AND IS NOT OFFICIAL


F1 heat 2 was won by Derek McAdam over Luke Sharp and Julian Stilwell with Nick Coles and Peter Swinkles coming in the minor places. The first two races today allocated points towards the Canadian Trophy for the Clubs at the Nationals this meant Derek(Manawatu) had enough points to come first over Julian Stilwell(Rotoiti) and Luke Sharp (Manakau) The NZ Champion for F1 is decided after the completion of there NZF1 Series.

More info coming soon
