Ryan 'reigns' in the wet

Posted: 4pm 22 Mar 2021

North Lakes racer Ryan Suhle will head to Sydney in May with a sizeable lead at the top of the 2021 Porsche Sprint Challenge standings.

Suhle dominated the challenge’s opening round at Phillip Island in Victoria, winning the first race and being runner-up in the second.

The 18-year-old had contrasting conditions at the island circuit, racing in the dry and then heavy rain, during which he spun off once.

Tough conditions

“They were probably the worst conditions I’ve ever had,” said Suhle, who started the first race of the year in pole position after qualifying.

“There was a lot of water on the track, aquaplaning a bit. (Those conditions) bite some times, but it was good to recover.

“I think a lot of people thought it (the race) should have been stopped, but happy to come away with the lead in the championship.”

Test day

Suhle’s next outing in the Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge will be at Sydney Motorsport Park on May 1-2 with a test day before those races.

That will be followed by races at Morgan Park in Warwick, then Sandown, Victoria, Tailem Bend, in South Australia and the final round at Bathurst, NSW.
