  • It has certainly been a long time coming, but the moment has finally arrived for the resurrection of one of Australian speedway’s most time-honoured events with the staging of the 2021/2022 Australian Midget Championship at Archerfield Speedway this weekend. Forced into hiatus due to the COVID pandemic, the event was last held in the 2019/2020 season and was won by classy Californian Carson Macedo at Warrnambool’s Premier Speedway. On Friday and Saturday night (January 28/29), the affable American will finally be afforded an opportunity to defend his title, taking on more than 40 other drivers from three states in what will be the 80th staging of the event. Having scored an emphatic win at Archerfield just two weeks ago, Macedo comes into the weekend in a very strong position to retain his crown, although he will certainly be faced with a somewhat tougher task given the field includes two former winners of the event in Kaidon Brown and Nathan Smee, the latter of whom was every bit as impressive as Macedo in winning the Queensland Championship last weekend.
  • Nominations are now open for the 2022 360 Australian Sprintcar Championship to be held at Murray Machining & Sheds Speedway, Murray Bridge on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th March, presented by Murray Machining and Sheds in conjunction with Chris Evans Transport.
  • Queensland’s Lachlan McHugh is the 2022 South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic Champion after he led a fast paced non-stop 40 lap feature that saw 23 of the 24 starters go the distance.
  • Lismore’s Mark Robinson led throughout the 35-lap feature race at Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night (January 22) to secure his fourth Australian Dirt Modified Championship victory. Chasing a sixth consecutive win, Kevin Britten was as exciting as ever with his penchant for running high on the track, but he was unable to chase down Robinson and had to settle for second place on this occasion, with a fast finishing Terry Leerentveld surging into third spot ahead of Andrew Firth and Josh Rose. The 24-car field was certainly less than expected and the absence of Andrew Pezzutti and David Clark from the event left Robinson and Britten as the only previous winners in the field, which was certainly reflected in the final result as the duo were a class above the rest of the field come feature race time.
  • After two nights of preliminary action that saw both Lachlan McHugh and Grant Anderson roll away with qualifying night feature race wins, it is down to business tonight as we get set to claim the 49th Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic Champion.
  • Night Two of the 49th South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic served up a bit of everything and the last 11 laps of the A-Main was the icing on the cake.
  • Night One bragging rights at the 49th South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic went the way of Lachlan McHugh after he was bale to get by polesitter Ian Madsen part way through what was a stop start 30-lap preliminary night feature event.
  • James McFadden finally added his name to the winners list of the Kings Challenge at the Borderline Speedway last night, but he didn’t have it all his own way as he had to fend off a determined defending race champion and survive a lap 10 blackout, which sent the venue into darkness after a power surge in the electrical system.
  • With new venues for the Classic Breakfast and the Standard Fan Appreciation Day all being forced to find a new home in recent days, the all-important schedule of what’s on and where to be has been announced.
  • With speedway competitors, fans and track operators having all felt the impact of the travel restrictions, border closures and public health directives that have been implemented over the last two years or so and, perhaps the most significant impact on the industry has been the inability to stage national championship events or other events that traditionally rely on drivers coming together from across the country to showcase their racing division. Well, all that changes this weekend when the Australian Dirt Modified Championship will be decided at Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night (January 22). Whilst the field is a little smaller than expected, which is perhaps understandable given the circumstances, a stellar line-up of Dirt Modfied daredevils from three states will be contesting the event, with local legend Kevin Britten chasing his sixth consecutive win in the event to become the most successful driver in the history of the category. Also on Saturday night, more than 30 Midget competitors will contest the Queensland Championship as final preparation for their own Australian Championship event at Archerfield next weekend, with AMCA Nationals, Compact Speedcars and Open B/Limited Sedans also on the program.
  • The South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic is back and so is the Warrnambool Bus Lines service to the Speedway for all three nights of the Classic.
  • Due to circumstances beyond the control of the Premier Speedway Club, the Classic Breakfast as hosted by Wade Aunger will now be held at Sungold Stadium, Premier Speedway, Warrnambool in the Classic Marquee atop Mt. Max.
  • Goulburn Valley Auto Club has started its Speedway season this past Saturday night with eight race categories entertaining a healthy crowd keen to see some action after the last two seasons of pandemic affected viewing.
  • Drouin Speedway on Saturday night held three important feature race events in front of a large crowd enjoying twilight racing from early afternoon and into the evening, with Shane Stewart from Morwell winning the second annual Standard Saloon ‘Sally Memorial’. Whilst Dale Smith from Melbourne’s Eastern Suburbs won the Sports Sedan Gippsland Cup and Harry Cecil the first round of the ‘Melbourne IT Support’ Junior Standard Saloon Victorian series.
  • Trevor Mills from Corowa has won another ‘Bob Bailey Memorial’ for Production Sedans in honour of an old mate who passed away a few years ago whilst at the time holding the Corowa – Rutherglen Speedway Club presidency. The event was held for the first time at Wangaratta City Raceway, a track Bailey supported by competing at as much as he could. In addition, on Saturday night Ash Booker won the Grand Prix Midgets Wangaratta Cup, Felicity Roycroft from Kialla won the second round of the Sports Sedan ‘Darren Levy Memorial’ series and Justin Richardson won the state series round for Australian Motor Contest Association (Amca) Nationals.
  • SA14 Brendan Quinn was a last minute nomination for the Mainline Dynolog Dynamometers All Star Challenge. Quinn had made the trek up north to run the QLD Speedweek deal, with a couple of washouts and not having results he had hoped he decided to try and secure an engine and run the Challenge. Managing to lease an engine from SA based series regular Jarman Dalitz enabled him to run. “Quinny used to run a lot with us back in the day and it was fantastic to see him back and his efforts rewarded. I told him Saturday night it was like a fairy-tale ending for him.” Mandy Searle tells us.
  • The 49th South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic is set to roar to life this coming Friday night, with a field of 83 cars currently entered after both Jessie and Alex Attard added to the entry list, while Zac Pacchiarotta set to sub in for Warren Fergusson at the eleventh hour.
  • Tasmania’s Jock Goodyer prevailed in a remarkable feature race to win the final round of the Speedway Australia QLD/NSW States Sprintcar Series at Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night (January 15). Luke Oldfield finished in second spot, a mere 0.33 behind Goodyer after 35 laps of racing and, in so doing, he became the only driver to finish inside the top five at every round, landing on the podium on three occasions, including a win in round two, which was more than enough to secure the championship. Californian WoO star Carson Macedo featured prominently in an epic scrap for the first four places and ultimately secured third following the demise of Lachlan McHugh on lap 30, with a late surge from Brock Hallett carrying him to fourth at the flag. Young guns Ryan Newton and Jy Corbet were next best ahead of Adam Butler, Aaron Kelly and Darren Jensen, who climbed more than ten spots, with Richard Morgan rounding out the top ten.
  • With the biggest entry list in history the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Challenge is ready to kick off tomorrow. “What an exciting list of nominations. We have the best in the country racing with us and I am so excited. We love racing at Simpson and so do our teams; we also love stirring them about the flies and no doubt Saturday we will do the same. The track always allows for thrill a minute racing and I can’t wait to get it started on Saturday.” says Promoter Searle
  • Speedway fans, believe the hype! It really is happening this weekend. The Grand Final of the Speedway Australia QLD/NSW States Sprintcar Series is coming to Brisbane this Saturday night (January 15). Originally slated as the opening fixture at the brand new Eastern Creek Speedway in Sydney, unfavourable weather conditions and staffing shortages as a result of increases in COVID infection numbers in New South Wales has resulted in construction delays at the state-of-the-art facility. As a result, the series finale will now be held in Brisbane this weekend, which is a fantastic development for the local fans who have already lost two nights of racing in the last week to inclement weather.
