This Sunday is race day at Wahgunyah Speedway, Production Sedans, Standard Saloons and AMCA features

Wahgunyah Speedway is ready to go this Sunday in its annual Kings Birthday weekend race meeting with some big events to close out the competitive season. Production Sedans will compete in the Dunkley’s Panels Production Sedan 1000, Standard Saloons will compete in the Lachie Howie Memorial and the Interstate challenge is on once again for Australian Motor Contest Association drivers in their great looking Modifieds.

This race day is proudly supported by local Corowa business Symmetrix Electrical Solutions.

Junior Open Sedans in the last round of the Billy’s Custom Spray Painting Daytime track championship, Victorian Speedway Council Open Sedans and the Goulburn Ovens Sedan Association will also have competition on Sunday plus the spirited demonstration of the Humpy Holdens.

Corowa will be represented in the Production Sedan feature by Jack Bear whilst Howlong based racer Jacob Mills will also hit the track with strong competition coming from two times national champion Steven Laidlaw, Leeton man Scott Hawkins, Goulburn New South Wales racer Craig McAlister, Moruya man Johnny Ralph, plus Rodney Anderson and Brett Norman from the Wagga club. Hard to pick a winner always in the Production Sedans and the action is likely to be door on door.

Warrick Howie from Chiltern will once again try to win his own brothers memorial race in the Standard Saloons whilst he does have fierce competition keen to win the race from Josh Thomas this season’s class Victoria three driver and Wayne Sheerman this season’s class Victoria two competitor. Add to them is Matt Domburg from Portland, Corowa’s own Micheal Fleming-Robertson, Andrew Cormack, Arron Cormack and Steven Dadswell and you have a strong line-up for the Howie Memorial.

Riley Balins leads the entrants list in the Junior Open Sedans with Cooper Lack, Mackenzie Bunt, Jordyn Tewkesbury, and Marcus Maclean all capable challengers. Balins was most recently very strong at the Victorian title in the qualifying and is keen to close the season out strong at Wahgunyah, whilst Jordyn Tewkesbury has been very consistent, but yet to have a big victory.

Billy O’Donoghue the victor at Wangaratta’s last show leads the field in the Goulburn Ovens Sedan Association racing this Sunday. Marty Bassett, Justin Brockley the Victorian champion, Peter Little, Ben Schmetzer, Tom Schmetzer, Ross Maclean, and Chris Brockley are others in the field that will make winning difficult for each other.

The annual Victoria versus New South Wales event has been affected by the lack of actual New South Wales nominations, as a result it really becomes a Victoria versus Tasmania match up. Frank Thierry from Mildura, Stephen Hopkins from around Bendigo, Darren McCarthy another from Mildura, Neale Peachey from Melbourne, Justin Richardson, and Rodney Bassett are just some of the entrants fans will see flashing down the straight in their mostly LS Chevrolet powered machines on Sunday. Anybody can win this class, this weekend, too hard to pick a winner.

Gates to the public open from 8am. Racing starts at 10am. A full canteen operates on site with hot, cold food and drinks. Entry is $25 for adults whilst the club offers aged pensioners and Children aged 12 to 16 a $15 entry. Any child under 12 is free. Family tickets are $60 for 2 adults and 3 children in the 12 to 16 age bracket.
