• A small but competitive line-up from South Australia is heading to Tasmania to contest this weekend’s Sea Road Australian Sprintcar Championship at the Latrobe Speedway. It has been over 20 years since a member of the “South Aussie Posse” has tasted victory in the Australian Title and with the race this year being held on neutral ground for a majority of the field 2020 could be year that a fourth driver is added to the South Australian honour roll.

    Current World Series Sprintcars Champion Steven Lines is the most likely South Australian contender although the Mount Gambier resident has had a tough run of late despite three feature race victories early in the season. Lines bounced back well last weekend with a fifth placing on his preliminary night at the Classic before a top 10 run on Sunday night.

    Lines has three previous podium results in the Australian Championship with the last coming in 2015 recording a runner-up result to eventual winner David Murcott. Lines will also be driving for the team that was victorious in the race the last time it was held at the Latrobe venue, so the team knows what it takes to win at the track.

    Fellow Mount Gambier racer and current WSS contracted driver Glen Sutherland and Adelaide based racer Jake Tranter complete the South Australian trio.

    Sutherland currently sits 12th in the overall World Series Sprintcars standings and he has struggled this year, but he is capable of qualifying for the A-Main. His best result of late is a top 10 result at Maryborough along with another top 10 at the Jackpot race at Avalon.

    Jake Tranter has been a consistent A main starter over the past month including a top 10 overall result in the World Series Sprintcars Speedweek. A C-Main finish at the Classic last weekend wasn’t a true indication of his recent speed and he will also be a setting his sights on an A-Main berth come Saturday night.

    The 2020 Australian Sprintcar Title – Presented By Searoad will be conducted at the Gulf Western & Independent Oils Latrobe Speedway in Tasmania between January 31 and February 1, 2020.
