The July Morwell Club day was a weekend of mixed fortunes for Billy and Spyder Racing!  Saturday was interrupted with weather and little issues with the Haase. It is still being getting sorted, since freshly being put together and finding a set up for the track, Three wheel studs broke on the LHR wheel. hence the wheel parted company with the kart and a trip back to Spyder Automobiles was required to repair the damaged hub and studs!

Sunday arrived with a forecast that most normal people would have spent indoors! The day was freezing cold and a top temperature of about 10 degrees was the order of the day with wind and rain! Billy had spent the first couple of races with the set up previously used at Stony Creek with minor changes. This worked reasonably well and the first two races saw a 2nd and first places. The pre-final was saturated and as a result the decision was made to make big adjustments to the Kart, these paid off when the race started and Billy ran away at the start and walked away from the field. He was cruising along and doing it easily while the opposition were trying everything to keep up! the final was drier and he finished in 2nd place but won the day on points! This concluded the best weekend he has had in 2 years of racing, ad that to the fact he was in the oldest Kart in attendance for the day! To say we were happy is an understatement! This was also the first outing with new Sponsor Kerbrider, a Melbourne Go Kart shop!
