Jon Turns the Corner

Jon McCorkindale is a racer from Young in southern NSW.

Dial Before You Dig NSW/ACT has sponsored Jon since he was racing wingless sprintcars at Granville.

Since then Jon has moved to winged sprintcars and then to GT3 Porsches.

This year is Jon's first full season in the GT3 Challenge Cup.

And as the name suggests, the season has had its challenges.

Jon ran out of fuel at Sydney Motorsport Park. He broke an exhaust pipe at Mallala and ran into a wall in the rain at Winton.

He was even disqualified at Sandown for wearing the wrong socks.

Last weekend at Queensland Raceway it all came together for Jon.

Starting with a win in the 40 lap Enduro on Saturday night, Jon had three wins from three starts and broke the track record.

Jon also featured on the cover of The Racing Magazine Australia.

Next round in September is at Phillip Island. Best wishes to Jon from Dial Before You Dig NSW/ACT to continue his winning form.
