The M-Motorsport Interlloy Lamborghini Gallardo of Justin McMillan and Steve Richards has been one of the standouts in the 2014 Australian GT Championship presented by Pirelli, claiming two impressive pole position trophies in the four rounds contested to date, but the hard-working Melbourne-based team knew that their maiden series podium was only a matter of time, and in Sydney they achieved that milestone.

“We’re a relatively young team racing against a string of professional teams that have been involved in GT racing for years,” team-boss Justin McMillan explained.

“We know we have the equipment, and in Steve Richards we have a driver capable of winning, but these things take time, especially with a new team. So far this year we’d been on the pole twice, and run strongly at the front of the field, but little niggling issues have caught us out.

“We were in contention for a podium at the season opener in Sandown, but an incident whilst I was fighting over second eliminated us, but at the same time, it gave us the momentum we carried into Sydney and a result that I’m particularly proud of.”

A ride day for Interlloy and their clients just two weeks out from the event at Sydney Motorsport Park gave McMillan some serious miles around the 18-turn, 4.5-kilometre venue, although most of those laps were contested in the team’s Freem Gallardo Super Trofeo, but despite the difference in performance between the two cars, both McMillan and Richards were quick through practice in Sydney.

McMillan posted one of his best ever laps of the Eastern Creek venue in the opening practice on a slippery surface and old rubber, before Richards put the gorgeous black and orange Lamborghini on top in session two.

In qualifying both drivers improved their pace, but were unable to get a clear lap, although with an increased pit-stop penalty for every row further towards the front of the field, they also decided that strategy would allow them to stop as much as ten seconds shorter than the teams in front of them, elevating them up the order during the compulsory stop.

McMillan started the car in race one, and was running strongly with the lead pack ahead of a Safety Car period which fell just as the compulsory pit stop [CPS] window opened. Unfortunately for the M-Motorsport team, by virtue of Steve Richards status as a ‘professional’ driver, McMillan was unable to stop until he had completed 45% of race distance, all but negating any advantage that many of their rivals achieved during their stops.

Despite this Richards charged from 14th to 11th within half a lap of the Safety Car pulling off the circuit, but it soon returned after early race leader Richard Muscat rolled to a stop at turn 18.

After three laps the Safety Car returned to pit lane and the race re-started with around 15 minutes remaining, Richards charging through the field to battle the Trophy Class Audis of James Winslow and Nathan Antunes who ultimately elected to let the reigning Bathurst 1000 champion through in the closing stages.

Punching out some of the fastest laps of the race, Richards caught the tail of Klark Quinn on the final lap to cross the line just six tenths of a second from P2, and less than six seconds from the race lead, negating an 18-second deficit across the closing laps.

“The car felt great, and Justin did a brilliant job, but we lost out on the pit stop,” Richards explained. “If the Safety Car had come seven or eight minutes later, we’d have been right in the mix and every chance of taking the win, but that’s the way it goes, sometimes the rules work with you, sometimes they don’t, but it’s a great results regardless and testament to Justin’s hard work and that of the whole M-Motorsport crew.”

Richards was back behind the wheel to start the second one-hour race, and he had the crowd on their feet, charging to the front to lead into the CPS, handing McMillan the car for the final leg, the two-time Victorian State Series Champion working his way back to fifth ahead of the flag having allowed the flying John Bowe through on the final lap.

“I could see Bowey coming, and I wasn’t going to risk our podium result, so I let him through,” McMillan explained post-race. “This was what we’d been working for all year, and it falls perfectly into place with our long term plans for the team. 2014 was about consolidation and getting onto the podium regularly. I still have a lot to learn, and I’m doing my best to juggle my work commitments with time behind the wheel because our goal is obviously the championship, and I think we’re heading in the right direction to be title contenders perhaps as early as 2015.”

“I’m very happy with that,” Richards added. “Justin’s drive was the best I've seen from him, but for me, what is really exciting is his improvement over the last 12 months. 18 months ago he was racing at State level, so this podium is a great testament to him."

For the M-Motorsport team the focus returns once more to Sandown in Melbourne (12-14 September), the scene of their maiden pole-position for the 2014 season, and a circuit both Richards and McMillan know intimately for the penultimate round of the Australian GT Championship presented by Pirelli.

The Sydney round of the Australian GT Championship will be telecast on Channel 7/7mate in the coming two weeks (check local guides for details - expected to be Sunday afternoon).

 The M-Motorsport team may have just narrowly missed the championship class podium during the third round of the Australian GT Championship on the streets of Townsville, but they bagged valuable series points, took pole position in qualifying, and packed away two straight Gallardo FL2s by the end of the weekend.

After the frustrations of Sandown and Phillip Island, the main focus for the team across the three 40-minute compulsory pit stop [CPS] races, was to finish, gain valuable experience, and gain as many points as possible.

Having turned laps at the venue in the past in both V8 Supercars and Carrera Cup, Steve Richards went out in the opening practice session to establish a good benchmark for the Interlloy Lamborghini, before heading back to his Type 991 Porsche to contest the one-make Carrera Cup category, leaving the bulk of practice to car owner McMillan.

McMillan spent much of the two sessions coming to terms with the 13-turn, 2.85-kilometre layout, running on old rubber before a late change to new tyres to acclimatise himself ahead of qualifying.

“I got one quick lap in, and it was comfortable,” McMillan beamed afterwards. “I’m not trying to do anything dramatic, just creep up on it.. Richo and I spoke at length after the disappointment of Sandown and agreed that we wanted to finish every race, and that’s the plan this weekend.”

With ‘roaded’ Pirellis fitted to the gorgeous black and orange Interlloy Gallardo ahead of qualifying, Richards went out on a mission, and out-paced points leader Richard Muscat in the Mercedes, former V8 Supercar rival Tony D’Alberto in the Ferrari and reigning champion Klark Quinn in the McLaren to take pole position by four tenths of a second, in the process improving the 2011 qualifying record by almost two seconds.

“That was comfortable,” Richards admitted afterwards. “Nothing dramatic, just comfortable. I got held up a little, and probably could have gone at best half a second faster, but that will do. Now it’s down to three races, and three finishes..!”

Richards started the opening 40-minute race on Saturday morning, immediately grabbing the lead and driving away from the pack with points-leader Muscat in tow, all the way to the compulsory pit stop. McMillan rejoined in fourth place, and was immediately under attack from the Audis of Steve McLaughlan and John Magro.

Moving to the extreme outside of the track after leaving the pit exit, McMillan expected the two Audis to pass him under brakes for turn one, instead he was hit with an image he just wasn’t prepared for..

“I heard a god almighty bang, like I was in the middle of an accident, then saw two Audis fly across the circuit in front of me and hard into the outside wall,” he recounted. “I did everything I could to avoid them, and came to a stop in the end to make sure I didn’t clean up the trail of debris they left down the track.

“After that it was understandably a Safety Car period, so for the bulk of the race I wasn’t able to maintain the gap Richo had given me to the guys behind, so ultimately one of the Koundouris Porsches dive-bombed me late in the race, and I let him go.”

Fifth, and with no discernable damage, the Interlloy team celebrated their first race on the Townsville streets, a celebration which included Ross Lilley in the team’s 2013 car, which also came through unscathed with a ninth placed finish.

In the damp of Sunday morning, McMillan was back behind the wheel for race two, starting conservatively on the semi-damp circuit to hand Richards the car in seventh place, the reigning Bathurst 1000 champion crossing the line in fourth position after charging through to finish just behind the points leading Mercedes, in the process setting the second fastest lap of the race - just under the new race lap record he had set in the opening race.

After claiming the Carrera Cup round win just moments before, Richards was back in the Interlloy Lamborghini for race three, and immediately up to speed and applying pressure to the Mercedes and Ferrari in front of him off the start.

He entered the pits for his CPS in third place allowing McMillan to rejoin in third, the team boss hanging on to claim fifth at the flag after coming under fire from Tony Quinn and 2011 race winner Klark Quinn in the dying stages.

Ross Lilley made it home in 11th, to add to his sixth placed finish in race two, and like the #48 Interlloy entry, the #63 Koala Furniture Lamborghini was in pristine condition.

“I can’t be any happier with the weekend’s result,” McMillan admitted as he accepted the pole position trophy. “We were quick, we were consistent, and we finished every race strongly. This was my first time here and I got quicker with each session, and whilst we didn’t quite reach the podium, we’ve amassed some very good points, and along with Ross, have two straight cars to put back into the transporter for the trip home!”

The team now enjoys a seven week break before the fourth round of the championship at Sydney Motorsport Park on 22-24 August, again alongside the V8 Supercars with two 30-minute races, and one 60-minute race.

The third round of the Australian GT Championship presented by Pirelli will be televised on Channel 7 in the coming weeks (time to be advised).

After setting the pace during the opening round of the Australian GT Championship presented by Pirelli at Melbourne’s Sandown Park, the M-Motorsport/Interlloy team of Justin McMillan and Steve Richards were looking forward to round two at the team’s ‘home’ circuit of Phillip Island, believing they would be one of the outright contenders for the 101-lap endurance race.

Opening practice only cemented that view after Richards topped the opening wet practice session early, ultimately falling to fifth after pitting early to assess data.

Dual Victorian State Series champion Justin McMillan proved too that he was no slouch in the slippery conditions, although the team did elect to send the Interlloy Gallardo FL2 GT3 out on slick tyres to give McMillan some laps on a surface he was likely to encounter during the big race on Sunday.

“To be honest it was tricky out there, but there will be races where conditions like that become prevalent, so it was ideal to go out and turn laps and gain some experience with how a car with this much power and torque handles the wet..
“The boys added another degree of difficulty too by sending me out on slicks.. now THAT was an eye-opener.

“Overall both Richo and I are pretty happy. Today wasn’t about going after a time, because Saturday is predicted to be dry, so there was no sense unduly risking the car to set a time that didn’t mean anything. Right now laps are important, regardless of the conditions, but we don’t need to be setting the world on fire until qualifying tomorrow..!”

In the end the gorgeous #48 Lamborghini was classified 11th ahead of qualifying where Richards elevated the car to sixth.

“All good,” he smiled post-session. “That’s where we wanted to be, we have a 23 second advantage over the points leader in each of our compulsory pit stops [CPS] by virtue of not going after pole, and in an endurance race, that will play right into our hands.”

Richards was tasked with starting the car and he began strongly, carefully picking his way through the field to be second early, turning laps in the 29s to hold position around 15-seconds back from race leader Richard Muscat in the Mercedes.

On lap 20 though the race was brought under Safety Car conditions after a big accident at turn five eliminated Lamborghini rival Roger Lago, Dean Koutsoumidis and Keith Kassulke.

Muscat immediately dived into pit-lane, Richards following him through to hand over to McMillan.

On lap times that put the Lamborghini in the effective lead of the race, with the Mercedes in P2, however some teams elected to play the strategy game and stay out behind the Safety Car. McMillan held his position on the restart until a problem started to eventuate with the right front tyre, forcing him to pit again ten laps later with a deflating tyre.

The M-Motorsport team effected their second stop at their CPS time and rejoined, McMillan now tenth, but a sequence of consistent laps moved him back up the order again to fourth before he was once again forced to return to pit lane with the same problem.

Sadly for the popular Lamborghini drivers, they weren’t finished with pit stops, returning once more for a new right front before ultimately claiming 12th place, four laps down on the race leaders.

“Something has failed in the right front of the car which has forced increased load on that corner,” McMillan lamented post-race. “For sure we’re disappointed, but on the positive side I’m happy with my pace. The car is straight, we had no other issues and proved we could run with the leaders, so it’s only a matter of time before the pendulum swings our way and it’s us on the podium with the big trophy.”

Richards too was reflective having seen situations like this occur a number of times throughout his career. “Mechanical failures happen, that’s just the nature of motorsport. We’re not 100% sure yet what caused the issue, but we’ll uncover it and it will probably never happen again.

“It was a tough weekend in the changeable conditions, but there were a lot of positives, the biggest one for me being Justin’s pace in all conditions. He was consistent lap after lap and didn’t have a single moment when all around him other cars were spearing off the circuit, so I’d say disappointment, but lots of forward momentum for the remainder of the season.”

The M-Motorsport team now has a six week wait until their first event of 2014 on the V8 Supercar program, with three 40-minute races scheduled for the Townsville street circuit over July 4-6. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
