Near perfect weather, track and conditions all round, topped off with 100plus race cars, ensured a great weekend of off road racing around the natural wonderland of Lake Tyrrell for the third round of the Victorian Off Road Championship and the second round of the ARB Off Road Racing Series. Solo driver Brad Chasemore #10 made the most of the conditions to top the time sheets, saluting the MBL Sea Lake Mallee Rally ARB 450 checkered flag after 3h26m24.038seconds of racing, securing his first Sea Lake title. Chasemore, who started out of third place and off the second row of the grid alongside Michael Collins, clocked in consistent 41minute lap times in the #10 Lindsay Tires backed Jimco to finish just 39.45seconds ahead of Andrew McClelland and Murray Mott #131 after 450km of off road racing at its best.

Chasemore, who finished fifth at last year’s event, pulled in 10 seconds at the end of the first lap on the lead two of Andy Brown #45 and Andy Ryan #50, going on to pass Brown on the second lap, giving him second on road position for the lap three restart. The early withdrawal of Ryan with engine dramas during the first service break passed the lead and first on track position to Chasemore for the lap three restart. Chasemore made the most of Ryan’s misfortune and his unimpeded track position for lap three, going on to record the fastest lap time for the event of 40m34.459seconds.

Chasemore posted on social media after the event “Woohoo!! What a feeling!! Standing on the top step at the Sea Lake Mallee Rally. After watching this race as a kid and years of competing at this great event, WOW! Special thanks to all those who have helped Pup racing, Ian Cathy Cunningham, Dave Tetley, Leigh Wells, ACF, ARB, and a special thanks to Dean Williams for years of support. The Gary Conrad family for their positive encouragement, Melanie Brennan for her awesome stickers. Thanks to everyone for your messages and best wishes, the off road family is pretty special! Lastly my wife Jodie Chasemore and kids for putting up with my addiction I love you guys, thanks!”

Starting out of fifth position and third row on the grid, local racers Andrew McClelland and Murray Mott in the Mott Blesser Logistics backed #131 Alumi Craft recorded extremely consistent lap times to finish third on the road but had made up enough time on Andy Brown and Mark Sedran #45 – 3h27m03.494seconds - to seize the second spot on the MBL Sea Lake Mallee Rally ARB 450 podium from Brown by 37.893seconds.

Brown and Sedran, who had an incident free 450km of racing in the #45 Milwaukee Tools ARB backed Saber, equalled their third outright podium position from 2015 to complete the 2016 MBL Sea Lake Mallee Rally ARB 450 in 3h27m41.387seconds.

With Mott and McClelland #131 tying up first in ProLite class, the battle was on for the minor class placings and fourth and fifth outright. While South Australian hard chargers Daryl Nissen and Andrew Harness #164 crossed the finish line in fourth place with a 7.2second road gap lead over Robert Plant with Ryan Burr and Brett Plant sharing the navigating duties in the #128 Southern Cross, Plant slotted into fourth outright on outright time with Nissan 23.893second adrift, securing third in ProLite class and rounding out the top five for the MBL Sea Lake Mallee Rally ARB 450.

Reinforcing that off road racing is a family sport, fifth through to eighth outright were all family crews. Slotting into sixth place was the Queensland father and son duo of Michael and Jae Collins, who were 1m34.454 adrift of Nissan and 3m50.971seconds ahead of the Owen family.

In what is true show of family camaraderie, the Owen family secured seventh outright. Reg Owen drove the first two laps with grandson Oliver Stephens navigating in the #41 Alumi Craft; son Matt Owen took over the driving duties for the remaining three laps with Oliver now navigator for his Uncle Matt.

The husband and wife Middlemiss Racing team of David and Alice drove the #117 Cougar into eighth outright and fourth in ahead of the father and son team of Jamie and Thomas Robinson; the #48 Jimco finishing the event 26.472seconds shy of the Middlemiss’, a great effort after their second lap rollover last year while leading the event.

The Ace Concrete Cutting backed #124 Southern Cross of Troy Duff and Daniel Mansfield rounded out the MBL Sea Lake Mallee Rally ARB 450 top ten, a mere 15.26seconds behind Robinson and 10m59.092seconds off the pace of the lead car.

101 competitors took to the prologue track on Saturday with 93 remaining to greet the start lights come 9am Sunday morning for the race proper. 41 of the 93 race starters completed the full race distance of 5 laps with a further eight teams nominating for the two laps of the Mallee Shield component; in effect, 49 finishers. A great finishing rate by any measure, and a testament to the track conditions and teams attitude towards preparation of their competition vehicles.

Teams are now back their respective workshops preparing for the fourth round of the Victorian Off Road Championship in three weeks’ time on 2-3 July, the Glenroy Plains Produce & PMD Race Products Off Road Masters, at Naracoorte in the South Australian South East and the third round of the ARB Off Road Racing Series at Goondiwindi in August.
