Local Motor Racing Enthusiast Tastes Success at Tailem Bend


Local Motor Racing enthusiast Hagen Zerk tasted success on Saturday at the South Australian round of the V8 Supercars held at Tailem Bend.

Zerk who is one of the main driving forces behind the Port Lincoln Auto sprint event was competing in the Combined Sedans support race in his Ford Falcon XA GT.

Starting 18th in a field of 36 in the 8-lap event, Zerk got off to a flying start passing 8 cars on the first lap and was placed second before hitting the lead on the last lap to take the victory.

Following Saturday's result Zerk backed it up with 3rd and 4th placings in Sundays 2 races to finish 2nd outright for the weekend.

Zerk was thrilled with the result and said if he had newer tyres for the last race on Sunday, he may have been able to take the overall win.
