This Saturday night (January 30) Murray Bridge racer Jarman Dalitz will put his South Australian Wingless Sprint Championship on the line as he contests the Murray Bridge Glass 2016 South Australian Championship at Adelaide’s Speedway City. With only one previous meeting under his belt this season Dalitz will have his work cut out as he takes on a further 28 entries from across the state and Victoria in what will be a hotly contested Championship event.
Leading the local drivers who will keen to wrestle the Title away from the defending Champ is Joel Chadwick, who is coming off three consecutive victories at the 430 metre venue. Chadwick is clearly the favourite due to his recent form but he will be joined by a number of drivers who have already tasted victory at the venue this season.
Virginia resident Matthew Kennedy, Jake Ashworth and Robert Heard also have Speedway City A-Main victories this year and Brett Ireland has a Murray Bridge win to his credit so he also knows how to get the job done.
But the impressive local list doesn’t stop there as Anthony Tapley, Darryl Sloan, Spencer Taylor, Brad Evans, Jason Gantz and Michael Spoljaric are also capable of running up front.
The Victorian contingent will also be extremely strong as the current Victorian Champion James Wren, Wayne Logue, Luke and Daniel Storer, Travis Miller, Travis Beasley, Jason Bolitho and veteran Peter Logue will all be keen to take the SA Title back home across the border.
Of the Victorian drivers you could probably say that Daniel Storer would have to be the leading contender as he was extremely impressive at last year’s Australian Championship at Adelaide and given his track experience he is sure to give the locals a real hurry up.
