• Defending WA Champion Steven Ellement has got his Title defence off the to best possible start, going through the opening night at Geraldton Speedway undefeated.
    Ellement would score two heat races wins from two starts, seeing him atop the points table after night one, with Ryan Higgs, Brendon Marshman and Glenn Carstairs all tied for second, Carstairs and Marshman each claiming a heat win and a third while Higgs got two seconds.
    Although it counted for no points, the preliminary night would also see the Johnny Andersson salute, in honour of one of the hardest working and long serving members of Formula 500’s of WA Inc, with Ellement starting off the front row courtesy of his earlier points haul.
    As the race went green Ellement would shoot out into the lead, with Ryan Higgs and Glenn Carstairs following closely behind, the race settling into a rhythm, with minimal stoppages across the distance.
    On lap twelve Carstairs would make his move to grab second from Higgs as Todd Broadwood and Brendon Marshman had an epic battle at the same time, their positions changing four times over the next few laps.
    In the end though it was Ellement who rounded out a perfect night, claiming a strong win over Carstairs, with Higgs, Chris Dymock and Broadwood rounding out the top five.
    Interestingly, out of a total of 36 racing laps across his heats and the feature, Ellement was so dominant that he led thirty five of those…his only blemish? Chris Dymock leading the opening lap of the second heat before Ellement took control!
    The Formula 500’s will return to the Geraldton Speedway track again tomorrow night with one more round of heats prior to the all important feature race!
