Kevin Britten unstoppable
QUEENSLANDER Kevin Britten continued his recent good form when he took out the 50-lap Mr Modified championship race at Lismore Speedway on Saturday night.
Britten led Jai Stephenson and Allan Jarvis to the chequered flag in a race where Britten always had the upper hand.
It also was a successful result for the American imported Troyer Chassis cars after a one-two main event finish.
Britten was in superb touch throughout the 50-lap race and this latest victory followed on from a strong third placing in the feature race at Rockhampton Speedway the previous weekend.
Britten took full advantage of his upfront starting position and led throughout the main event without ever being seriously challenged.
The mandatory pit stop during the race did not halt Britten’s momentum after he picked up where he left off and maintained his advantage at the head of the field in the second half of the Mr Modified championship.
Former Australian champion Mark Robinson also started at the head of the field with Britten but a flat tyre later slowed his progress as he chased leader Britten.
A yellow light period helped Robinson get back in the event at the rear of the field, however he later withdrew from the race when his car went off song.
Pre-race favourite Andrew Pezzutti had a tough night and his chance for Mr Modified honours was virtually over before it started after he crashed out of the event.
Other main event winners on the night were: Jordan Biviano (Junior Sedans), Warren Dhu (Four Cylinder Sedans), Scott Quirk (Street Stocks), Darcy Tweed (Dwarf cars) and Stuart Hall (AMCAs).
