Chris Telenta – 2nd Place in the Feature Race
Chantelle Gray – 1st Stock Block
1st Travis White
2nd Chris Telenta
3rd Steve Doyle
First Stock Block over the finish line – Chantelle Gray.
The Feature Race was started with the lowest points scorers off the front like they used to do at Claremont, except the rookies were started rear of the field for safety reasons.
This made for some spectacular racing as the faster cars had to work their way towards the front over twenty laps, skilfully negotiating their way past the field. All drivers are to be commended on their very professional approach and a special mention must be made for Chantelle Gray who completed her 20 laps to be the first Stock Block over the finish line. Well done everybody.
The track surface was superb and held up beautifully right to the end of night. Many thanks to Rod Howe for all the work he has put in to get the track ready for the night in spite of the huge rainfalls that Northam has been having in past weeks. Well done to all the volunteers at Avon Valley Speedway.
Thank you to Greyhounds WA for supplying Meal Vouchers for the placegetters and to Rob Archibald for supplying trophies. We appreciate your support.
Geraldton City Speedway 28th January 2017
Top Dog – Alan Meakins 28-01-2017
It seemed more like a trial of endurance than a race day at Geraldton City Speedway on Saturday 28th January, 2017 but the final Top Dog honours went to none other than Alan Meakins in his newly refreshed #73 Stealth/V4 Scatt.
Some of the nominated cars and drivers did not make it to the track due to the rather cyclonic conditions on the day. Extremely hot around mid-day and pouring with rain about 3:00pm with a blast of cyclonic weather coming through. Everything settled down later in the evening however, and those that endured had some good lap time and enjoyed the night.
Alan and Dennis Sparnon were battling it out all night with Dennis winning two of the three heats and Alan the other until the feature race which saw Dennis succumb to a diff problem on the final lap.
The two rookies, Jason Carbone and Chantelle Gray, made great progress in developing their track skills and are to be congratulated for persevering in the face of adversity and trying weather conditions.
Thanks to the team of volunteers and committee members at Geraldton City Speedway who had the courage to ride out the storm and bring the track back to a workable condition.
We heard later that the cyclone that passed through had done some damage to nearby houses. Can anyone verify this?
We look forward to our next run at Geraldton over two nights on the Easter weekend.
