This Saturday night Nyora Raceway’s second last meeting of the season will host the crazy competitors of the Demolition Derby world who will smash, bash and slam their cars into each other until only one car can keep moving, before those very same cars will be amongst a fleet of vehicles being dropped from the sky to smash and watch parts fly everywhere in the Membreys Transport & Crane Hire Car Drop, if this hasn’t already got your attention, maybe the racing will.
Racing includes a large contingent of Wingless Sprints with Ladies and Open fields, Grand Prix Midgets, Division 2 Hot Rods, Sports Sedans and Vintage Demonstration Super Modifieds and Sprintcars with Fireworks during the night provided by racecars and then Peninsula Fireworks with a dazzling night show.
Sports Sedans are competing for Victorian state points in the South Gippsland Stampede with Jake Blencowe a winner at Nyora already this season ready to double up on the earlier victory with competition coming from Robert Bickham, Darren O’Brien and Dale Morrison.
The Grand Prix Midgets return with the South Gippsland Classic on the line and the Australian Champion Trevor Perry leading the troupe. Travis Florimell is the biggest challenger whilst Lisa Chalcraft is trying to keep the pressure on Perry and take the lead in the state point score.
Mark Miles, Aaron Price and Mitch Blencowe lead the nominations in Standard Saloons with the former two time state points champion Miles looking to finish the season strongly.
Victorian Division 2 Hot Rod champion Scott Laidlaw from Morwell is the one to beat on Saturday night whilst Rob Tatterson and has son Troy will keep Laidlaw honest.
Samantha Millar, Renae Eastham and Brittany Kuypers look most likely to be battling for a Ladies Wingless Sprint win on Saturday night whilst in the Open Wingless Sprints Wayne Logue, Luke Weel, Brad Foster, Wayne Hurford, Todd Hobson, Travis Millar, Peter Logue and Warrick Taylor are some serious competitors in what will a great show.
Travis Millar won the last time the cars hit the track at Nyora, however this line up is even stronger than the last one, picking a winner is impossible.
Finally the Demolition Derby has some crazy cats in the field, with the writer personally knowing some of them, ‘Bad Ass’ Brad Warren, ‘Dangerous’ Dale Morrison and ‘Jacked up ‘Jason Judd do not need any reason to tear up stuff and here they are getting to do exactly that. They will likely tear each other apart and one of the others like ‘Rupert’ Anthony Segond will take the biscuits.
