Local Modified Sedan drivers ready for Boxing Day meeting
LOCAL Modified Sedan drivers will be keen to get some laps under their belts on Boxing Day leading in to the state and national titles later in the season.
The Lismore Automobile Club will be well represented at the Lismore meeting, which is their only run at the track before the Lismore Nissan and Kia NSW championships on February 20 and the Trevan Ford Australian championships on April 23-24.
While former Australian No1 Greg Worling, Quintin Clark and Steve Quirk are regulars around the Lismore track, Saturday night has attracted some other big names including former Australian champions Max Clark (Lismore), Todd Doyle (Bundaberg) and Justin Drew (Alavon).
Also worth watching will be Rodney Parmenter and Jordon Biviano, who is no stranger to the Lismore track, having had a lot of success in the junior ranks some years ago.
There is also strong interest in the Four-Cylinders this weekend.
Little separates the drivers in this class and much comes down to the grid draws on the night.
Luke Watt, Matt Layton, Ben Scully and Matt Claydon will not have it all their own way with the inclusion of a couple of strong contenders from Queensland in Tim Weir and Jack Kay.
Weir is a master of the track and always very hard to beat.
Racing will be fierce from the drop of the green flag.
Stuart Fawcett will head the Production Sedans, looking to continue the form that has allowed him to mix it with the best in Queensland and come out on top.
The meeting on Saturday night will be highlighted by the first round of the V8 Dirt Modifieds' Mr Modifieds series and a 50-lap event for Wingless Sprintcars.
Lismore will also host the third round of the Mr Modified series on January 9, then the Wingless Sprintcars 100-lap Grand Prix on January 15-16.
