    What a month for Tim McPherson, a win in the Open Sedan Masters at Redline has just been followed up by a win in the three round Darren Levy Memorial Series for Sports Sedans at Wangaratta Speedway & throw in between a little engine difficulty in between & McPherson is certainly glad it’s all over.

    Back on Labour Day weekend, McPherson ran his prized V8 Open race at Redline Raceway & after a less than outstanding first night of racing stormed through night two picking up places through the heat races to put himself in the fight for pole position in a shootout, before stamping his authority on the field with an all the way win in the feature event, going back to back on last seasons win.

    The same weekend, despite not competing at Rosedale in the Victorian Sports Sedan Series, results went his way to see him finish in the top five on points against the likes of Brendan Miller the eventual winner.

    Next up for McPherson was the Victorian Sports Sedan title at Alexandra Speedway using his 100 Lap Derby engine which was less than ideal.

    Despite not having the best engine he could have, McPherson was circulating in the top five for much of the title race before the engine tired a little & a fellow competitor snatched the final title podium position from his grasp.
    With a possible series win on the line a week later in the Sports Sedan Darren Levy Memorial series at Wangaratta, McPherson arranged for a Jeremy Lunt built engine to be put into his car & off to Wangaratta he headed with the aim of holding back local Rhys Collins and securing an important series win.

    So on Saturday night March the 21st, McPherson did exactly what was required to qualify as high up & as close to Collins in the feature event when he finished in front of him in the first heat of the night, in the same position as Collins in the second round of heats & third behind a winning Collins in his last heat event.

    Luke Fallon & Collins began ahead of McPherson in the feature & Collins assumed the early lead. Collins hasn’t had things go his way recently & for McPherson another mechanical failure for Collins sealed the win.

    McPherson chased hard, however finished second behind Fallon in the final round of the series to secure the overall win, in what was an important Sports Sedan result for him & his wife Lisa.

    “We have had a roller coaster run lately, however the wins at Redline & Wangaratta & the support we have got from our engine guru Hans Lovski whose putting our best engine back together, & Jeremy Lunt has all paid off now. I like to thank everybody who has supported us, my wife for supporting me. Thank you to the well wishers for the messages of support also.” Shared McPherson.
