Race 1 - 2022

Aeon Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • Kiki Roseburg is unhappy with the damp weather conditions here in March. "You hate to blame the conditions for not doing well, but I do think there were problems. It's our job, though, to work through it."
  • Luke Holtren, a debutant on today's grid, is welcomed by iStock Press. He has a very solid qualifying day and looks set to start his career off well.
  • Mason Shelton is featured as part of a vignette on the iStock HQ backed Yee Valley Racing. Dropping the team down to Aeon after failing to win the trophy, this has been seen as a bold move - especially with the re-hire of the team's very first lineup all the way back from season 1.
  • Valkyr Slipper looks downhearted after making several mistakes. "I'm disappointed,yes. There's lots of factors, but bottom line is it falls on me to get it done."
  • Practise results: Valkyr Slipper has a temporary improvement for this week.
