As many of you will know the Festival of Sportscars was held at the Mount Panorama Circuit over Easter.

A contingent of Arrows spearheaded by Russ Butler and Peter Bartolo competed, along with Greg Read and Greg Sticker from NSW, Brian Searles from WA and Paul Antonieff from Qld.

A massive field of 27 Clubman turned up from all around Australia, with most Marques represented. Russell Butler, with his 3SGE-powered Arrow, claimed pole almost 5 seconds ahead of his closest rival. The rain gods were not particularly helpful, for the most part waiting till the guys were on the track before letting it belt down. This meant a lot of laps in the wet on slicks. Russell, in his Arrow Clubman, went on to win two races, one by 29 seconds and the last Race on Sunday, a 3 lap event, by a massive 40 seconds!
