Classic touch at speedway

The vintage division at the Sapphire Speedway was described as a “definite crowd pleaser” last week. 

The meet included a full card of divisions, including the ever-popular Aussie sixes and the vintage speedcars. 

Also on show were the super production, series production, super sedans and the karts. 

The track was in excellent condition and drivers and spectators alike had clear skies for a night of racing.

A smooth course saw racers finishing with excellent times.

The only thing louder than the roar of engines were cheers from the crowd as races were quick and close. 

Meanwhile, the little ones were kept entertained on the  jumping castle. 

The Aussie sixes attracted a small, but competitive field. 

Local racers Peter Blackman  and Matt Holland had good nights. 

Blackman finished second in the division on the night. 

The super sedans also had a small field, but fans enjoyed the close racing action. 

Meanwhile, Glenn Stoddard and Tyson Moon were impressing the super production class. 

In the series production class, current NSW/ACT title holder Daryl Moon was on a mission to claim the top spot. 

He held pole position for most of the night, but locals were hot on his heels. 

Garry Targett, Sally Green, Ashley Roberts, Ken Armitage and Sarah Eastman were all right in the thick of racing during the night. 

Eden-based driver Eastman picked up second place on the night for her performance, while Targett claimed third.

The karts attracted a large field with a range of entries on the night.  

The next meeting at the Sapphire Speedway is on July 26.

The meeting is “Bega’s Big One” with a 40-lap challenge with big prize money up for grabs.
