• The Wingless Sprint competitors in South Australia are currently in the middle of a busy stretch of five races in five weeks with the previous two events both being staged at the Murray Machining and Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway. Last Saturday night the venue hosted the rescheduled Round 2 of the Track Championship with 26 competitors racing on what was an extremely busy program.

    With the event being a non-points race a few of the leading drivers elected to sit out the meeting knowing the opening round of the Ti-Bills State Series at Whyalla is only a week away but the field contained a number of newcomers which was a real positive.

    Following his runner-up finish at the opening meeting Cobden’s Blake Walsh was back and he won the opening heat in impressive fashion over Tyson Martin while Hayden Vickers and Joel Chadwick, who was making his first appearance at Murray Bridge this season, also were victorious in the opening round.

    The second round started with another Victorian win with Harry Ross defeating Darryl Knuckey and Mitch Rigney while Thomas Walkom claimed his first heat win in heat 5 while Tyson Martin booked his front row start with a win in the final heat.

    The B-Main saw Sharni Pitcher, Tyson Newton, Troy Frisby and Nicole Southby tag onto the back of the 20-lap A-Main.

    With Martin starting on the pole, it was going to tough to run him down and it proved to be the case as he led all 20 laps to defeat fellow front row starter Harry Ross. After starting from position five Walsh moved up to finish third but he was over 3 seconds back. Hayden Vickers, Joel Chadwick, Jesse Alexander, Aaron Kennett, Mitch Rigney, Michael “Spike” Spoljaric and Caleb Evans completed the top 10.

    The week prior Round 3 of the Murray Bridge Track Championship attracted the largest ever field for a club event at Murray Bridge with 36 drivers in attendance. The heats were action packed with 12 car heats and wins going the way of Jack McCarthy (2), Kirby Hillyer, Nate Trewin, Ryan Alexander and Tyson Martin.

    After winning his two heat races McCarthy continued his dominant form as he led all 25-laps in the final to back up his win from a week prior at Renmark. Second place went to Tyson Martin, who chased McCarthy for the entire race distance, with Ryan Alexander having a strong run to finish third. Mount Gambier’s Mitch Broome, Nate Trewin, Rylan Furler, Darryl Knuckey, Keke Falland, who came out of the B-main, William Caruso and Jordon Bolitho completed the top 10.

    In addition to Falland, who was victorious, Jenna Kervers, Thomas Walkom and Sam Martin progressed into the A-Main via the B-Main.

    Throughout the night there were a number of incidents including Ross Miller, who rolled his #24 machine in heat four in turn two while Harley Alexander rode out a car destroying wreck in turn three after tagging the wall in the A-main. At the time Alexander was charging hard challenging Mitch Broome for fourth with 10 laps remaining.

    This Saturday night will see a new era in South Australian Wingless Sprint racing begin with the opening round of the Ti-Bills Race Parts Wingless State Series at the Whyalla Speedway. Currently the nomination list stands at an impressive 26 entries.
