  • Sprintcars Queensland were finally back in action at AusDeck Patios and Roofing Archerfield Speedway last night, kicking off our 2017-2018 Race Season with Round 1 of the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Series. We had an impressive field of twenty-nine cars turn up for the first night of the new season, a field rich in talent, ambition and passion, and what an incredible show they put on for race fans. With championships in South-East Queensland often coming down to the very last race of the season, the championship chase was on from the very first fall of the green flag. Luke Oldfield, defending series champion, was the man to beat all night and led the field to the start of the A-Main, but Andrew Scheuerle was truly magnificent in the immaculately presented Q25 racer and quickly took control of the race once the lights went green. Scheuerle led the first third of the A-Main before Lachlan McHugh, who had displaced Oldfield in the opening few laps, stormed though to steal the lead. McHugh and Scheuerle traded positions five times in a lap and a half, captivating the crowd and putting on a completely mesmerising display for race fans. McHugh eventually secured the lead and began pulling ahead of Scheuerle, the pair weaving their way through lapped traffic as the laps wore on. Unfortunately for McHugh he cut down a left rear tyre with seven laps left to run and was forced to retire to the infield for the final laps of the race. Scheuerle inherited the race lead and despite Oldfield closing in over the final few laps of the race, it was Andrew Scheuerle who took a hard fought and well-deserved win. Luke Oldfield crossed the line in second while Mitchell Gee had a brilliant run in the Q36 racer to come home in third and round out the night one podium. Peter Lack and Callum Walker completed the top five.
  • In a thrilling start to the 2017/2018 East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship at Ausdeck Patios Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night (September 16), it was Andrew Scheurele who emerged triumphant in the 30-lap feature race. Having started on the outside front row alongside pole qualifier and defending series champion Luke Oldfield, Scheuerle shot to the front early before being rounded up by a rampaging Lachlan McHugh, who subsequently looked on track to record a resounding win until a flat tyre ended his run and handed the lead back to Scheuerle. Although Oldfield narrowed the gap in the closing stages, he was never able to launch a concerted bid for the lead, finishing in second spot ahead of Mitchell Gee, with Peter lack and Callum Walker rounding out the top five.
