RESIDENT Lismore race car driver Allan Jarvis will come into reckoning in the Mr Modified championship event at Lismore Speedway tonight, but only if he can replicate his early good form on the track.

Jarvis will be one among a quality field at the Lismore venue to contest the 50-lap championship event.

The local speedway driver has enjoyed a good season at Lismore this summer and has been prominent in heat race competitions and main events, resulting in several placings across the grid.

If he can reproduce his best form tonight, he will certainly be a driver to watch.

The other to watch is Queensland driver Kevin Britten, who will no doubt draw inspiration from the recent success of his brother, Peter, who is competing in the US.

Peter Britten, two-time and current Australian V8 Dirt Modified champion, made his American season debut last weekend at Cayuga County Fair Speedway, Weedsport, New York, and successfully qualified for the main event.

He ran strongly against the American professionals and narrowly missed a top-10 placing in a workout that captured the attention of onlookers.

Spurred on by his brother’s performance, Kevin Britten will be looking to continue the good run on the track enjoyed by the Britten family.

Kevin has shown recent good form and has recorded consistent podium finishes, highlighted last Saturday night when he was placed third in the feature race at Rockhampton Speedway.

The Mr Modified race will be split into two 25-lap feature races with a mandatory pit stop on the infield after the completion of the first 25-lapper.

Former Australian champion Mark Robinson will race, as will national Super Sedan series titleholder, Matt Pascoe.

Pascoe, who earlier in his career competed successfully in V8 Dirt Modifieds, recently took out the NSW V8 Dirt Modified championship at Lismore Speedway.

Promoter David Lander will again continue his policy of admitting all children aged 12 years and under free of charge when accompanied by an adult.
