Crash and Bash carnage at Drouin Speedway this Saturday

In the second of its twilight Saturday race day shows this season Drouin Speedway fires up from 1pm until the early hours of the evening with a huge Crash and Bash and Dog leg racing event. The annual War on Wheels for the Crash and Bash Opens and the Race for Yarnie for the Ladies Crash and Bash contingent headlines the program with a packed venue from top to bottom of the viewing area expected.

Drivers will compete around the speedway until the enter turn two where they will then cross through the infield dog leg before re-entering onto the speedway in turn three. This slows down the heavy and fast Crash and Bash cars and allows for more opportunities for contact between competitors.

As a result of a tragic accident this past weekend at Daylesford Speedway that claimed the life of Drouin member Stephen Douglas, the Standard Saloon race will honour him as the ‘Drive for Dougo’. This makes the event even bigger than it already was in significance with the two tribute races on the program.

Amongst some of the favoured competitors in the War on Wheels are names like Jackson Basten, Matt Sgroi, Steve Young, Zac and William Leeson, Mark Taylor, Rob Bushell, Nathan Taylor, Jason Judd, Daniel Williams, David Parker, and Alan George. Expect drivers to do whatever it takes to make the finals with some pushing and shoving along the way, and once the final begins, expect absolute mayhem!

In the Race for Yarnie which is a tribute race for Teahn Murrell, Leanne Young returns to do battle with the likes of Danni Marshall, Lea Judd, Clare Lynch, and Erin Brown. Judd is in great racing form and is almost always in the top three whilst Young is a class legend with numerous titles and wins over her career behind the wheel. Watch for those two especially.

Whilst club points are up for grabs in the Standard Saloons, some of ‘Dougo’s mates have entered to compete and the “Drive for Dougo’ takes on more meaning for them. Shane Ardley considered Douglas his best mate and will compete in the other car Douglas owned and Owen Cecil who spent many hours in the garage in Poowong with Douglas has also nominated to turn laps at Drouin.

Jeff Blencowe, Mitch Blencowe, Jack Yeomans, Matt Leek, Kane Gibson and Darwyn Lee are other competitors in the line-up that should figure in the race for podium places, Jeff Blencowe the standout at Drouin along with Jack Yeoman’s with both drivers ranked in Drouin’s top three last season.

A small field of Junior Standard Saloon racers will compete with a big event being held elsewhere whilst the Aces of Spades Vintage club will provide spirited demonstrations once again.

Gates open from 9:30am. Racing from 1pm
