Club Points Night - October 29, 2016

 

The October 29th race meeting was set to be the Sidecar Spectacular, but unfortunately a number of sidecars were unable to turn up due to work commitments, so the night’s racing turned into a club points night. What a great night of racing though!


The peewee division is gathering strength by numbers and by speed! The Harvey brothers, new to speedway are flat out trying to catch young Obrien who continues to fly out the front in all his races. Enter into the mix Tristan, Callum, Axle, Zachary, Zac and Joshua and we have some serious racing going on out there!

.

The always exciting junior division saw young gun Luke Killeen come out on top. After only dropping one point in his heat races, Killeen won a tight battle with Brad Gordon to take out the victory. Killeen and Gordon have had close races in the past and this was no different. Declan Killeen finished in third place in the final, with Christopher Bogdan in fourth. Both riders scored plenty of points in the heats and looked every bit as good as Luke Killeen and Brad Gordon. The ever-improving Ryan Philippson was impressive and challenged for race wins during the night. Jayden King and Jack McDiarmid were on the pace throughout the heats with strong displays. The 125cc novice riders each got a chance to race against the 125cc riders in the heats. Mitchell McDiarmid had two rides, with Xander Smith and Breea King getting one race each. All three of the novice riders managed to get a few points and didn’t look out of place up against tougher opposition.

 

In the junior sidecar division, there were two duos that took to the track to get some laps under their belt. Jack and Adam Fewster only had two races against Jake Harvey and his passenger, but the two races didn’t disappoint. The second of those races saw the two sidecars trade places several times before Jake Harvey and his passenger got the better of the Fewster brothers at the finish line. Earlier in the night, each of the two sidecars got a few practice laps in.


Kale Ballantyne showed his class to win the night’s 500cc racing. Ballantyne held off reigning state champion Daniel Winchester and Doug Scoble to beat them on the line and record a super win. All three riders were very close in the final and any one of them could’ve won it. Joey Furfaro put in a strong shift to finish fourth on the night. Carley Gittus was close to making it to the final but was only just unable to pip Joey Furfaro for a spot in the deciding race. In something a little bit different for the 500cc riders, the second round of heats were six laps each. Daniel Winchester and Doug Scoble took the wins in the six lap heats. Kobee Ziedas scored five points in the heats for his best meeting so far on a 500cc bike since moving up from the 250cc division. Drew Winchester had a steady night and was unlucky to only score the one point.

 

 


Despite the Sidecar Spectacular not taking place, four sidecar outfits still took to the track for a thrilling night of racing. A new format was tested in the heat races. All four sidecars started the races, with one going from a fifteen metre handicap. The final would also take place under the same format, as well as being six laps rather than the usual four. Scott Charsley and Matt Reece were in superb form and prevailed in the pair’s first meeting of the season. Tony Shield and Ash Brown finished second on the night. They came up short against Charsley and Reece in the final. The two sidecar duos had several hard-fought battles throughout the night with Charsley and Reece dropping just one point, which came in their first race at the hands of Shield and Brown. Paul Clarke and his passenger took out third place in the six-lap final. Horrie Payne and Chromie Hollywood finished fourth in the standings on the night.
