Sherrins Claim All The Spoils At Wakefield

The #18 Sherrin Racing BMW M4 has claimed not only both Australian Production Car race wins and the round win at Wakefield Park at the weekend, but also the outright and Class A1 APC Cup Championships as a result.
The M4 – steered by brothers Grant and Iain Sherrin – brought home convincing wins on both Saturday and Sunday after having earlier qualified on pole.
While its competitors may have suspected the tight Wakefield Park circuit wouldn’t suit the M4, the team dug deep to ensure they did all they could to secure the victory – and secure it they did.
“It really does seem like the M4 is bullet proof now – it took us a while to get there but ever since the round at Sydney Motorsport Park the car has performed really well and that is three wins in a row now – I think we have got it right!” Iain Sherrin said.
“It is a bit of a relief to have it done – we won the championship a couple of years ago in the 135i and do it with this car now after all of the development and hard work that has gone into it is just fantastic.”
Iain started both races this weekend, leaving it to his younger brother Grant Sherrin to bring it home.
“The car went awesome today, we just couldn’t fault it – we had the grip, we had the speed, and we just got in front there and managed it from there,” Grant Sherrin said after Sunday’s race.
“This result is a real credit to the team – with dad (Michael Sherrin) as team manager and the crew guys Jimmy, Clay and Nathan doing a fantastic job in the pit stops, it all came together.
“It has been a great team effort all year. Who would have thought heading to SMP that we could get to the championship, but we have done it! Bring on next year!”
Sherrin Racing will return to the Australian Production Cars in 2018 to defend their Outright and Class A1 championship. The calendar for the 2018 season is expected to be released shortly.
