Polar Ice Series


Have you ever wondered what’s in the numbers?

Let’s take a look at hot laps and there’s some interesting times from the Nupave/Nexgen Quicktime 18/19 season

Now we all remember Adam Clarke blasting to the current one lap record with a 12.866 back on the 18th of May way back in 2013 ….. Seems so long ago!

He again laid down an impressive time in the opening round last season with a 14.709 pipping Rusty Whittaker on 14.873 and Darren Vine in the IBRP 35Q who locked in a 14.886

Round two of the same season a little later in October it was Rusty Whittaker clocking 13.374 the first of the “13’s” which would turn out to be one of the only two in the season and set by Whittaker in the 89Q car.

Whittaker backed up his QuickTime stanza in round three with a 14.170 leading the time charts over a huge 19 car field with just over 2 seconds from 1st to 19th …… everyone was very close!

Round four on the 8th of December saw Rusty Whittaker complete the hat trick of QuickTime’s with a 15.100 ahead of Charlie Brown and Tim Farrell.

Darren Vine edged out Adam Clarke on boxing night in round five of 2018 clocking a 14.071 to Clarkies 14.203 and Rusty Whittaker’s 14.312.

Viney in the 6Q again topped the timing monitors on a super heavy track early January 2019 with a 15.892 ahead of a season best time for Glenn Wright banking a 16.146 and Bodie Smith at 16.271

Tim “The Hitman” Farrell locked in a 15.457 on the 26th of January in the 51Q ahead of another season PB from Tom Clauss in with a 15.536 to Rusty Whittaker in 3rd at 15.965

Rusty then took the line honours in the only February show at Archerfield leading a huge 21 car field with a 15.517 from Brock Dean’s 15.545 and Vine on a 15.580

The 9th of March saw the 35Q Callum Walker rein clocking a 14.024 ahead of Scotty Farmer in the 22Q who ran a 14.058 and Vine’s 14.118

Walker then backed up another QuickTime on the 6th of April again in the IBRP 35Q at 14.944 literally a fraction in front of Brad Harrison’s 14.947 and Farmers 15.255

Change of numbers, same result saw Rusty Whittaker now in the re-numbered BOSS car which now carried the 78Q digits topping the 18 car ladder with the seasons only other “13” at 13.650 over Farmer at 13.703 and Sydney-Sider Kaidon Brown at 13.729.

Farmer took out the season ending QuickTime of our 18/19 season with a 14.811 from Brock Dean at 14.939 and Zac MacDonald banked his season best at 14.946 in the Seasons Hot lap Sessions.

11 rounds plus the 50 lapper we invaded the “13’s” only twice!
We topped the ladder by hitting the “14’s” six times and ventured into the “15’s” just four times to take the nights “QuickTime” Title

In the 19/20 season GSA Fastman Award came on board, the hot lap session had been moved to after the Sprintcars, the biggest field we have ever had on opening night in over a decade with 19 entries and it was Kaidon Brown already giving the lap record a nudge by laying down a 13.289 from Brock Dean 13.339 and Viney again showing a ton of pace with a 13.444.

Clarke 14.709
Whittaker 13.374

Some people have been asking what the Bob Baker Challenge is exactly so in a nut shell here we have it

Bob Baker offers a cash incentive to not only support the QSRA shows but ensure every effort is made to make the big race each night

To win the $500 cash that is offered the following conditions have to be met

There must be 16 to 19 cars on the track fired up ready to take the green for the first attempt in the main event.

A random draw of the starters (1 to 16 up to 19) will be done prior to the start of the race.

The car drawn once passing the green on the first attempt to run the event wins the $500 providing they attended the previous QSRA sanctioned show.

If one or more car(s) moved up one or more positions it is the car that starts in the draw position.

If the field starts 19 to 24 there will be $1000 up for grabs!
The winner of the lucky draw will not be announced until they finish the race unless that car DNF’s they will be announced then to help ease the pain of the DNF
Bob Baker has been offering the Challenge since 2017 and we are thrilled to have Bob back on board for the ATRS Archerfield Midget Series as well as the Highbank Hussle in conjunction with the Queensland Title in Toowoomba!

That’s 16 QSRA Shows including the 50 lapper!
