Peter Boylan’s Australian GT campaign has taken a beating in round six of the series. Damage obtained in race one prevented Boylan from finishing and despite the effort of the Autohaus Hamilton crew, he missed race two.
“I can’t speak highly enough of the team from Autohaus Hamilton,” commented Boylan. “They worked so hard to get the car out for the second race but unfortunately, luck wasn’t on our side this weekend.”
Boylan was the innocent party in an incident on the opening lap of the first race. Greg Crick spun at the top of the mountain after electing to start the race on slick tyres, despite the amount of moisture still on the track. Crick collected Boylan as he went around and caused extensive damage to the right hand side of the car.
“It’s a shame we couldn’t get back out. The car was coming on strong and I felt we had a strong chance of a podium finish again this round.”
Boylan heads into the final round of the championship at Sandown Raceway with a 13 point lead in the Challenge Class, despite scoring no points for the round.
The Autohaus Hamilton team will head to the USA with Boylan this week for the Porsche Rennsport Reunion at Laguna Seca but will be back in Australia in time for the final round of the Australian GT Championship.
“I’m looking forward to racing at Laguna Seca but am excited about the potential to win the Challenge Class in Australian GT on my return. It’s a fantastic series and to win it in my first year would be a real treat,” said Boylan.
