LIGHTNING SPRINTS

Making a cameo appearance aboard David Van Vegchel’s FOZ Lightning Sprint recently at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway, Sean Iacono proved to be a successful 11th hour substitute and came away with the feature-race spoils.

With Van Vegchel being unable to participate in the recent event, due to unexpected commitments arising after already arriving at the track, the SpeedPartz Australia owner put in a call to Iacono to take up the reins in his reliable machine, with the former Australian and Queensland Champion agreeing and quickly making his way to the track.

Fitting his own seat and shocks to the car to make it as familiar as possible, Iacono’s fourth, first and third-place finishes in his heat races saw him sitting second in points heading into the feature race; however, due to pole-sitter Aaron Kelly drawing the highest points to rear card, Iacono was forced to start at the back of the pack.

Knowing that he had a strong car under him, which ultimately suited the slick track, Iacono quickly made his way up to third place by the opening corner, before later taking control of the lead during the middle stages of the 15-lap distance and going on to claim a comfortable win.

“I have to say a huge thanks to David (Van Vegchel), along with SpeedPartz Australia, for giving me the opportunity to race his car,” commented Iacono.

“It was definitely an unexpected result after the last-minute call up, but the FOZ chassis was on point throughout the whole event, which made it possible for us to come away with the win.”

With the FOZ Chassis head office located in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania (USA), Speedpartz Australia currently imports the chassis and supplies them to drivers Australia wide.
