Miedecke cleans up V8 Stock Cars
Andrew Miedecke comfortably won the opening round of the Power Tour's V8 Stock Cars at Oran Park today. Miedecke won all three 15 lap races, seemingly taking his time passing his rivals rather than risking damage with haste.
Starting from pole position in race one his Chev Monte Carlo was initially outgunned by the Pontiac of Mark Harrison who started alongside. However once they emerged from turn one, it was Miedecke in front and never in doubt of a win from that point . Harrison dropped to fourth place as Tony Southwell (Chev) and Miedecke's team mate Chris Templer forged ahead. For many laps Southwell and Templer ran nose to tail before the latter took over second as they approached the midway point the race.
In the meantime Harrison lost his second spot to the Ford Thunderbird of Dick Howe and then, in the concluding stages the Thunderbirds of Sam Dale and Dean Wanless also slipped past.
Miedecke also took out the reverse grid race after starting from the back. Southwell was the early leader from team mate Duncan Bain (Chev) while Templer was third. However within a handful of laps Miedecke was hovering and ready to pounce.
He had the lead shortly after and wasn't troubled as Templer moved to second, fighting off Harrison all the way to the finish. Southwell and Bain were the next two ahead of Dale.
