Speedway: Drivers’ last hit-out for the national title

A STRONG contingent of Modified sedan drivers will take to the track tomorrow night for their final run in the lead-up to the Australian championship in Lismore over the Anzac weekend.

Jordan Biviano is new to the division but with his experience from the junior ranks he holds his own with the best in the class.

Father and son Max and Quinten Clark are Lismore regulars, with Max having won the national title in 2010-11.

Lismore's David Jacobi, the Australian No 3 and former NSW No 1, has not had the best of luck this season, so he should benefit from the run.

Steve Downs has been consistent in his past few outings but seems to have a problem keeping all four tyres on his car, while Steve Quirk has also been plagued by bad luck.

Trent Dhu will have his first run back in the Modified sedans this season after stepping up from four-cylinders.

Gerry Flood and Steve Stubbs are among the other locals in the field, which includes a number of Queensland drivers.

Racing will start at 6pm.

QLD Production Sedan

Stuart Fawcett has finished second in the 2016 Queensland Production Sedan title at Kingaroy.

After blowing a differential in the first heat, Fawcett managed to hang on for third spot.

Following a quick diff change, Fawcett finished the next two heats in second spot, putting him in second position on the grid for the 40-lap feature.

He ran a perfect race, with big moves when it mattered and a lightning fast second half.

Fawcett took the lead 10 laps from the end and looked set for victory until his right rear tyre blew on the last lap, which allowed Tim Atkin to pass on the last corner and take the win.

Other local drivers Chris Bessling, Trent Nicola and Mark Quirk all put in good efforts, while Wesley Smidt wasn't so lucky, being involved in a rollover.

Production Sedans is a growing class and Lismore Speedway will run the Grenville Dream 4 Prod- uction Sedans Anzac weekend over two nights on the same program as the Modified Sedans Australian title.
