• Bairnsdale Speedway fires up one more time for this Speedway season with a Super Easter Saturday show that includes the headlining Sprintcars and several important feature events that includes the Gary Bowden Cup for Wingless Sprints that honours a late and great former clubman, Keith Astrella Memorial for the Compact Speedcars honouring one of their great clubmen and the Easter Classic for Standard Saloons with support from the Division 2 Hot Rods.

    Being the last show of the season, the nominations are incredible. Eighty-eight total cars are nominated to compete with Standard Saloons providing the bulk of those numbers accommodating our local sedan racing heroes.

    The Gary Bowden Cup still attracts people that knew Gary or might have heard great things about the man. His wife Emma will be in attendance cheering on her friends in the class and just enjoying the moment that so many people care. It is going to be a difficult race to pick a winner in with the great list of racers that could win. Picking a few out we start with Todd Hobson who won the 50 Lapper at Bairnsdale this season, add to that Daryl Logue who just won at Alexandra Speedway two weeks ago. Peter Logue and Wayne Logue are also two others to keep an eye on with all three Logues from Morwell always up the front somewhere.

    Chris Temby just finished on the podium in the Victorian title and has sky high confidence whilst Matt Mills could have won our 50 Lapper however due to damage, we will never know, and he is here for redemption. Paul Drew, Scott Irons, Travis Evans, Dillon Siely, the list goes on, one thing for sure the Gary Bowden Cup will be a great race.

    In Sprintcar action another driver looking for redemption is Adam Greenwood. Greenwood was leading the last Sprintcar feature at Bairnsdale before a crash in front of him could not be avoided and he suffered damage to his car when he looked comfortable in the lead. Shane Steenholdt, Alistair Bastian, Dillon Siely who is competing in two categories on race night and David McKay another looking for a change of fortune after spinning out of the lead of the race whilst in front of Greenwood at the last show.

    Daniel Stewart is back to try and beat another field of tough competition. Standard Saloon racing is at its best in Gippsland and Bairnsdale this season has really turned it on. Daniel’s brother Shane the current Victorian champion is looking to remind his brother of that status this weekend, whilst Mitch Foster returns to Sedan racing after a long layoff, Glen Pendlebury gets back behind the wheel, Rhys Lansdown is in town and last years ‘Club King’ Josh Thomas and the Vuillermin brothers Jacob and Patrick are just some of the entries that will be slicing and dicing for the win.

    Our visiting Compact Speedcars will have night two of a double header weekend at Bairnsdale. Racing points that the club is managing combined over the two nights racing will see some great prizemoney paid out to competitors. The Keith Astrella Memorial means a significant amount to the club who dearly miss him. The number one driver in the line-up based on results over the last few seasons is Justin Paull, however Mark Hutchinson, Mark Cecil, Tania Hallett, Andrew Burleigh, Michael Conway, and New South Wales visitor Kyle Sharpe are just some competitors to keep him on his toes. Compact Speedcars is a class with engines such as bike 1050cc two valve, 1000cc multi-valve, two stoke 1060cc and 1430cc car engines.

    Closing out the line-up is the Division 2 Hot Rods who two weeks ago held their Victorian title at Bairnsdale. Leigh Mitchell who finished runner up in that event returns with Ricky Low competing for the final time (we think) in the class. Jason Seymour has been showing great speed in recent events and along with Troy Hutchison, Kane Gibson, Rob Tatterson and Peter Disher the class will provide some great racing.

    The event is the last Speedway meeting for the season with over 2000 people allowed in.
