McCorkindale Defies Adversity to Post First Win in Porsche GT3 Challenge Cup
Sir Jack Brabham famously pushed his car over the line at Sebring in Florida to win the World Championship after running out of fuel.
Dial Before You Dig GT3 Porsche driver Jon McCorkindale followed in Sir Jack's footsteps on the weekend after running out of fuel in the first race after leading the field at Sydney Motorsport Park.
But unlike Sir Jack, Jon McCorkindale recorded a DNF and sixteenth place for the race.
With better fuel management in the second race, Jon showed his class and moved from sixteenth to second place.
Jon then went one better in the third race, getting past race leader Fraser Ross to record his first win in the Porsche GT3 Challenge Cup.
Sebring was the first of three world championships for Sir Jack Brabham. Here's hoping that Jon McCorkindale can also achieve many more wins.
