This Sunday racing at Drouin Speedway down Jindivick Road in the Baw Baw Shire will once again entertain motorsport fans with the final round of the West Gippsland Wingless Sprint series, the Sports Sedan Challenge and the SSA Junior Sedans Drouin Cup the main events on a great little show.
Bunyip racer Travis Evans leads the likes of Wayne Logue and Brad Foster in the final round of the West Gippsland Wingless Series. Evans won the last round however Logue won the first round and is very quick. Mills and Foster are very consistent; both however are looking for a feature win.
In the Nationally governed SSA Junior Sedans, thirteen kids will be going racing together with Bree Simpson, Chloe Sheerman, Todd Moule and Harry Orme amongst the favourites. Simpson, Sheerman and Moule have all won finals this season; it could well be Orme’s turn. The class has two divisions, Top Stars and New Stars and some of the New Stars to watch include Jayden Bryant, Kiarna Barton, Seth Sloane and Dylan Barrow.
Over fifty competitors have nominated to go racing and in the Sports Sedans Steve Akil, Dan Metcher, Troy Glassborow and Jackson Barneveld are just some of the competitors keen to win the Sports Sedan Challenge. Glassborow showed good pace last weekend at Nyora and Akil the week before at Alexandra, it really is anybody’s race to win on Sunday.
The Victorian Speedway Council Standard Saloon field includes the new Victoria number 3 driver Lewis Williams and Victoria number 4 Jack Yeomans. With Deegan Benson and the Cecil brothers in the line-up also, the action is sure to be close.
Victorian Ladies Standard Saloon champion Trish Dike will lead a field of ladies into battle that includes the very capable Gemma Laidlaw, Ashleigh West and Molly Johnson. It’s a great little field for Sundays racing.
Victor Benson will have hopefully fixed his car after it was banged up during the Victorian title for Standard Saloons at Nyora last weekend, if he has he will figure at the front of the field against the likes of Jake Vuillermin, Cory Horter and Simon Strang.
