  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • This Saturday night (March 11) the Murray Machining and Sheds Speedway at Murray Bridge will host the South Australian V8 Dirt Modified Championship that will incorporate Round 2 of the 5 Star Dirt Series supported by Speedway Australia.
