Will Davison qualified P10 for Race 16, recording a time of 1:10.3864 which was just two tenths of the pole sitter. Conditions were sunny but very windy for Race 16 at Queensland Raceway. Starting off the 5th row for the 38 lapper, Will Davison unfortunately lost 3 places on the opening lap but was able to make a pass on lap 2 to move back up to P12. On lap 4 the #19 Darrell Lea STIX Commodore detoured to the pit lane for the first and only compulsory pit stop and a set of fresher tyres. Davison re-joined on track in P25 and gradually moved up the field as the rest of the teams pitted for their compulsory pit stops. [...]
What a weekend! Team Darrell Lea STIX are back on the podium after the first enduro round of the year. Shane Van Gisbergen was accompanied by Jonathon Webb for the 161 lap attack at the Sandown 500, to take home 3rd place. The weekend’s events started off well with Lola finding her feet, or should I say tyres, early on Friday, reinforcing the success of an earlier shakedown and test day at Queensland Raceway. After a morning session SVG handed over the reins to Webb for the remainder of the day, finishing practice two and three in 5th and 6th respectively. A quiet sense of confidence was in the air come Saturday morning, with issues facing the number 97 appeared [...]

Call it a year of ups and downs, but 2015 has put SVG and the Darrell Lea STIX squad to the test; Sydney Motorsport park SuperSprint proving no different. After the great results from 2014 all eyes were on Shane to step up to the challenge again, rain clouds looming overhead. Day 1 practice kicked off to a shaky start with lots of off track action as Shane reacquainted with the car. However a change to soft tyres in practice 2 pushed car 97 into 3rd and looking increasingly ready for the weekend ahead. The good times continued to roll into day 2, sitting in P1 after the 3rd and final practice session before qualifying. Once again the harder tyre pushed [...]

The Ipswich SuperSprint began with team owner/ co-driver Jonathon Webb nabbing some valuable seat time in the #97 Darrell Lea STIX Commodore in preparation for the Pirtek Enduro Cup that kicks off in September at the Sandown 500. Webb completed 18 laps before handing the pilot duties over to Shane van Gisbergen. The pair finished third in the 2014 Pirtek Enduro Cup which eventually saw van Gisbergen finish second in the overall standings. Saturday’s race 18 saw the #97 start out of position six which proved to be one of the most exciting sprint races of the year following an epic race long battle with Mostert as van Gisbergen enjoyed going toe-to-toe and door-to-door with Lowndes for most of the [...]
