• Speedway Wangaratta clicks into gear once more this Saturday night with the Production Sedans the major event of the show with the first of two slated feature races in the next two months attracting the new Australian champion Trevor Mills, former two times national champion Steve Laidlaw and local club members Brendan Harper and Raymond Ussher to do battle.

    Not to miss out the Goulburn Ovens Sedans finalise their three ‘Ryan’s Refrigerated Transport’ track series round track series at Wangaratta and the SDAV Hot Rods powered by V8 engines and the Grand Prix Midgets will be hammer down trying to win series rounds for their classes.

    Mills has been on a hot streak with three feature wins in his last three feature starts, including a win last start at Wangaratta and winning the ‘Ryan’s Refrigerated Transport 1000’. Brad Hutchinson who recently finished third in the Victorian title, Laidlaw who recently won at Bairnsdale and Harper and Ussher who are running in the top three in the Victorian state point score are all keen to knock the national champion off the top rung of the podium this Saturday night.

    A great field of Goulburn Ovens Sedans interestingly has Mills and his team mate Jack Milthorpe from the Production Sedans nominated to compete. However those two are a couple rounds two late to do any damage at the top of the points sheets with Clint Henderson, Chelsea Cornelius, Frank Gordon, Nathan Shortis and Ross Maclean all having been there or there abouts in the first two rounds so far.

    Cornelius is looking to secure the overall and still has a fire in her belly after being penalised after crossing the finish line first at her last start at Wangaratta. Henderson is coming off a win at Wahgunyah at the last race meeting and Maclean is looking for some mechanical consistency before the Victorian title next month at Wahgunyah.

    Action amongst the popular 34’ Ford bodied SDAV Hot Rods should be fierce with this seasons stand out so far Jason May having his hands full with a trio of Marco’s Stan Jnr, Stan and Tom not to forget Jason’s own brother Jamie. Grand Prix Midget action will pit the fastest racer in the field Trevor Perry up against the fierce and fast Lisa Chalcraft with the two drivers amongst the top three in the state points. Travis Florimell should contend if his car is less temperamental this weekend whilst Chris Fowler has noted on his little black book that finishing every race is a priority.

    Club heroes in Standard Saloons, Sports Sedans and Junior Sedans makes for an action packed event.
