FIVE of the latest model factory-built American Troyer cars have been entered for the V8 Dirt Modified Lord Mayor's Cup at Lismore Speedway tomorrow night.
Drivers running the US brand are Andrew Pezzutti, Kevin Britten, two-time Lord Mayor's Cup winner Mark Robinson, Jai Stephenson and Phil McNamara.
All five drivers will enter the event among the title favourites.
Teo and Bicknell, other American brands, are also represented in the field.
Some drivers who race regularly at Lismore Speedway spend the Australian off-season in the United States checking out the latest developments in V8 Dirt Modified racecar technology.
Promoter David Lander said yesterday that the standard of race equipment now on show in the V8 Dirt Modified ranks had improved out of sight over the past decade.
"Almost all of the teams have the very latest equipment and with each season most drivers update to the latest chassis designs and running gear available," he said.
Queensland driver Britten will return for Lismore Speedway's first meeting of the season after a strong 2010-11 at the venue.
AMCA Nationals sedans, wingless sprints, street stocks, four-cylinder sedans and junior sedans are also on the program tomorrow night.
