Mixed weekend in speedway for NSWSKC members

Posted by Mirkwood Productions on 28 February 2011

Saturday the 26th of Feb around different speedway tracks, a number of New South Wales Speedway Kart Club members were out racing in various divisions with mixed results.

Nowra Speedway:

410 Sprintcars: Current and long time member Rod Bright finished 2nd in the feature race and in doing so secured the 2011 Sprintcar Country Series.

Rod has raced both speedcars and sprintcars and this year has followed the sprintcar series across regional NSW and has reaped the rewards being crowned Champion on Saturday night.

New club member Steve Caunt was having a solid night until a 3 car accident in the feature race saw his car damaged and unfortunately he had to retire from the event.

Junior Sedan:  The NSWSKC owns a junior sedan, which is offered as a prize to junior drivers each year to help give them a start in speedway. This year Amy Shute is having a successful year learning at each event she attends. On Saturday night however a broken driveline in the first heat put paid to Amy’s night.

Sydney Speedway:

Wingless Sprintcars:  It was a great result night for NSWSKC members in this growing division. There are a lot of current and former members racing in this class. On Saturday nightclub members Joel Rhind and Kyle Pollock ran 1st and 2nd in the feature race respectively and Life member Brian Briton for a bulk of the race was in 3rd place until surrendering that position late in the race.
