  • Australian champ Mark Robinson prevailed in the PB44 Dirt Modified Memorial at Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night (January 28), denying Kevin Britten a fairytale last-to-first win in the race created to commemorate his father. Having opted to start 20th in the 44-lap feature race, Britten was breathtaking in his charge through the field on a track that drew universal praise from competitors. Using the high side to round up the rest of the field with ease, Britten faltered only at the final hurdle when he found himself unable to dislodge Robinson from the lead. Having led the race in the early going, Mitchell Randall would wind up third after a late scrap with David Clark, who also advanced from the back of the pack, while pole starter Scott Cannon would salvage fifth in the final PB44 feature race to be staged at Archerfield. Brayd Stephenson finished in sixth spot ahead of the final runner on the lead lap in Seiton Young, with Zac Blanch, Luke Dunn and Andrew Firth rounding out the top ten.
  • Dirt Modifieds take centre stage this Saturday night (January 28) at Archerfield Speedway with more than 25 drivers from three states rumbling into town to contest the PB44 Memorial feature race. An annual event staged in honour of Paul Britten, a popular Dirt Modified administrator who tragically passed away in 2012 at just 44 years of age, the PB44 always attracts a stellar field and this year is no exception as the event is contested at Archerfield for the final time. With big fields of Wingless Sprints, AMCA Nationals, Modlites and Open Sedans also confirmed, more than 120 competitors will hit the track on Saturday night to dish up a deluge of dirt track action.

  • Four-time Australian Dirt Modified champion Kevin Britten was utterly unstoppable at Ausdeck Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night (November 9), trouncing a small field to win the 25-lap feature race. In what was an emphatic start to his season, Britten never looked likely to lose, shrugging off a series of restarts to lead every lap and ultimately finish ahead of David Clark, who started alongside Britten on the front row but found himself shuffled back in the early going before clawing his back onto the podium. Having scored a Modlite feature race win seven days earlier, Terry Leerentveld proved his versatility with a strong run into third place.
  • With Sprintcars dominating the speedway landscape, it is easy to overlook those competitors whose performances in other categories rank them amongst the very best the sport has to offer, and this Saturday night (March 24) will see two such competitors in action at Ausdeck Patios Archerfield Speedway when Kevin Britten and Liam Williams hit the track. Despite a vastly reduced racing schedule this season, Britten journeyed to Heartland Raceway in Moama two weekends ago and spanked a very strong field to retain his Australian Dirt Modified Championship crown. Like Britten, Formula 500 ace Liam Williams is a three-time and current national champion who has been a class above his rivals with a consistency that is as impressive to witness as it is dispiriting to those trying to find a way to beat him.
