McHugh tops super sedans while Geary takes a tumble
By Dennis Newlyn
QUEENSLAND driver Jamie McHugh took out the eighth round of the Ian Boettcher Volkswagen Queensland Super Sedan Series at Lismore Speedway on Saturday night.
McHugh was untroubled and led throughout the 30-lap final in an impressive drive.
He started from pole position in the final and never gave the opposition a look-in.
Series tournament leader Wayne Brims was runner-up and Craig McGeorge third.
The race was a rough and tumble affair.
Brisbane's Paul Geary was involved in a spectacular crash and rolled his car several times.
He escaped unscathed in the wild incident that involved a number of cars.
Pre-race favourites Michael Gee and Tania Smith struck mechanical problems and failed to contest the main event.
Meanwhile, Luke Oldfield took out the feature race for the V8 Dirt Modifieds.
Oldfield worked hard for the win after he started from a mid-field position. He charged his way to the front late in the event.
A highlight of the night was the appearance of Santa Claus, who parachuted into the arena in front of a big crowd as part of the Christmas Family Entertainment Spectacular.
The next race meeting at Lismore Speedway will be the Boxing Night show, highlighted by the Mr Modified Series main event sponsored by Herne's Freight Service.
