Drouin Speedway Club this Sunday October 15th becomes the first club in Gippsland to get under way for the new 17/18 season with a great show for all the family to enjoy. Amongst Sunday’s racing will be the ever popular Crash and Bash Sedans event that has become a traditional start to Drouin’s season, they will be joined by the Ace of Spades Vintage Speedway Sedans that remind everybody what dirt trackin’ was like back in the day.
The Crash and Bash field is headlined by the top three competitors from last year’s Victorian title, with Jake Young the champion along with Rob Bushell and Andrew Corlett who completed the podium joining him.
All three will have their hands full with the likes of Lennie Bonnici, Rob Disher, Brendan Miller, Jason Judd and James Kane all proven Crash and Bash stars who do not want to end the day finishing second to anybody else.
Last season seen so many drivers from the previous season improve and many more drivers join the class, the fans will not be disappointed as they watch competitors rip into each other pushing and shoving their way through the field in order to finish with that trophy at the end of the day.
The Ace of Spades and their old 34 Fords and Chev Slopers and other great machinery will be as spectacular as a Vintage division can be. They pass and go hard trying to find their way to the front of the field and the added bonus is that traditionally at this race meeting, many of their buddies come along with their old and wonderful road cars that is a treat for enthusiasts as you walk around the parking area looking at tough old machines.
Standard Saloons, Juniors and some Open Sedan competition fills in the rest of the show and for the kids, there will be access to a FREE jumping castle. It will be a great day for the family at Drouin this Sunday. Event enquiries can be made to 0422 289 133
