Chum Taylor & Dennis Nash Foundation Cup 2016 Wrap

 

The Peewee division kicked off the nights racing with Max, Jett, Zac, Locky, Callum, Tristan and Zac putting on an excellent pre-program display of racing. This year, peewees will be wearing helmet colours as per the program so we can keep up with how they are all racing.

 

The 125cc novice division saw Mitchell speeding away from the main group in all his races but Breea handled the newly graded track and has certainly improved over the fortnight. Hayley continues to develop her speedway skills and it was great to see these ladies on the track. Xander was desperate to be on the track but the mechanical issues continued to dog him all night.

The three junior sidecar outfits from the President’s Cup Shakedown on October 2 all returned for the Chum Taylor & Dennis Nash Foundation Cup and showed the crowd once again that the junior sidecar division is just as exciting as the senior sidecar division. The Fewster brothers, Jack & Adam, were victorious this time around with a super win ahead of the duos of Scott Topping & Morgan Cornwell, and Jake Harvey & his passenger. All three junior sidecar teams were as quick as each other and look set for a great season of racing.

 

In the 125cc division, Luke Killeen took the win in the final after also winning his four heat races. He managed to get the better of Brad Gordon and Jack Mcdiarmid in the rerun of the final. Declan Killeen was excluded in the original running of the final after coming out, with Brad Gordon doing a superb job of laying the bike down to avoid Declan Killeen. Both riders are ok which is great news. Declan Killeen, brother of Luke, scored 10 points in his heat races. He unfortunately dropped a point in his first ride of the night when he had stopped a lap early, allowing Jack Mcdiarmid to overtake him for the race win. Christopher Bogdan, Jayden King and Ryan Philipson were among the points on a solid night of racing for the 125cc junior racers.

 

Daniel Winchester took out the honours for the 500cc solos with a victory over Kale Ballantyne and Doug Scoble in the final. Kale Ballantyne was unbeaten in the heats and looked set to complete the night with maximum points, but fell short in the final as he was beaten by the reigning state champion Winchester. Doug Scoble was back in action and he notched up an impressive win over Daniel Winchester in his first race of the season with a smooth pass on the inside of Winchester going into turn 3 in the early stages of the race. Scoble finished the night in 3rd place and looked like he could’ve taken the win. Carley Gittus finished 4th in the final after scoring 9 points in the heats. Joey Furfaro is another rider who took to the track for his first races of the season, with a good showing to score 6 points in his four races. Kobee Ziedas and Drew Winchester notched up two points each, with Kobee Ziedas’ older brother Jarryd Ziedas unfortunately not completing a race due to bike problems.

 

Stylish sidecar rider Russell Mitchell & his passenger, Andy Gajek only dropped one point all night on the way to a strong win in the sidecar division ahead of Tony Shield & Ash Brown, and the pairing of Horrie Payne & Chromie Hollywood. Shield & Brown got the better of Mitchell & his passenger in the second senior sidecar race of the night in a very close encounter. Payne & Hollywood were on the pace however they were unable to manage anything more than a 3rd place in their races.
