Wayne's world of experience

IF EXPERIENCE counts for anything, Wayne Randall will be the toughest driver to beat in tonight’s Brims Group of Companies-sponsored 30/30 Super Sedan Challenge at Lismore Speedway.

Randall is one of Lismore’s favourite sons, having raced at the venue for over three decades. It’s where he started his career and he has become a household name in racing circles over the years.

Randall has teamed with Wayne Brims for the 30/30 Challenge and the two Waynes will certainly be major contenders for honours in the opening stanza of the tournament.

“Wayne Randall is a local Lismore product and he has done more laps around Lismore Speedway than any other competitor entered for the 30/30. Lismore really is his home track and he has a big legion of fans,” Lismore Speedway promoter David Lander said.

Randall and Brims take on some of the best Super Sedan drivers in Australia in the 30/30 Super Sedan Challenge, highlighted with the running of twin-30 lap feature races.

A driver and co-driver are assigned to each car. After the completion of the first 30-laps, there will be a short break to allow crews to service their car before a driver change is made for the second main event of the night.

Both drivers will share heat event duties on the way to qualification for the finals.

Current Australian Super Sedan champion Darren Kane, who recently took out the NSW title at Dubbo Speedway, is in white-hot form and enters the 30/30 a strong contender.

Interstaters Brad Smith (Tasmania) and Lucas Roberts (Victoria) come into favouritism, while other pairs worth watching include Ian Brims/Craig McGeorge, Steve Pearce/Gavin Northfield, Matt Pascoe/Jamie McHugh and Steve Jordan/Peter Britten.

The full contingent for tonight’s 30/30 race is: Barry Craft and Craig Craft - UMR Engines; Chris Albert and Dempsie Pails – JP Racing; Jack Childs and Daran Munroe; Wayne Brims and Wayne Randall – Brims Transport; (A1) Darren Kane and Marc Giancola – Ian Boettcher Race Parts; Steve Jordan and Peter Britten – DSM Realty; Steve Pearce and Gavin Northfield – Amazing Signs; Lyall Fisher and Kyle Fisher – Roma Windscreens; Brad Smith and Lucas Roberts – Little Transport; Chris Jensen and Todd Doyle; Matt Pascoe and Jamie McHugh; Paul Bauer and Darren Hawkings; Greg Maher and Gary Maroske; Sean Black and Peter Gray; Ian Brims and Craig McGeorge – Brims Concreting; Alan Robertson and Darryl Niesler – UMR Engines; Mark O’Brien and David Maush.
