Lismore Speedway Sedan Challenge
DRIVERS from as far as Western Australia will contest the Brims Group of Companies-sponsored 30/30 Super Sedan Challenge at Lismore Speedway this Saturday night.
The concept of the 30/30 event – which features twin 30-lap main events – is contested by teams comprising two drivers per car.
Each competitor has the opportunity to race in a main event and qualifying heats which determine the qualifiers for the finals.
There are three national champions entered for the 30-30 event.
Australian Super Sedan titleholder Darren Kane will team with national Late Model sedan No 1 Marc Giancola who has travelled all the way from Perth especially for the 30/30.
Australian V8 Dirt Modified champion Peter Britten also is in the field.
He will co-drive with Super Sedan star Steve Jordan.
The hot combination in the starting line-up is the team of Matt Pascoe and former Australian champ Jamie McHugh.
After strong performances last season in the 30/30, Pascoe and McHugh loom as pre-race favourites.
Promoter David Lander last season introduced the innovative 30/30 to his fixture schedule and the success of the event in 2008 ensured it was a mandatory inclusion on the 2009-10 season calendar.
The contest is held over two legs, with the second stanza set for Toowoomba’s Charlton Raceway on Saturday, December 12.
“I was looking for something different for super sedan racing at Lismore and hit upon the concept of running this type of event,” Lander explained.
“We have some of the best drivers in Australian Super Sedan ranks competing at Lismore this Saturday night, so I am sure the fans will see some great Super Sedan racing.”
Support categories include Street Stocks, AMCA Sedans and Four Cylinder Sedans.
Lander continues his policy of letting kids under 12 in for free when accompanied by an adult for this event.
