THE coveted 77th Victorian Speedcar Championship has attracted some of Australia’s best and international drivers as they all battle for outright honours at Heytesbury Stockfeeds Simpson Speedway this Saturday night presented by Aidan Freeman Photography.
A cool $2000 will go to the winner as entries from New Zealand, Western Australia, Queensland and New South Wales join the Victorians and South Australians while the Wingless Sprints Summer Slam and Formula 500’s Dash for Cash also have solid support.
This is the third time the state’s Speedcar title has been held at Simpson with defending champion Matt Jackson of NSW in the field of 29 while three times winner Travis Mills and current hot-shoe Nick Parker is also in the stout field.
Two drivers to watch will be from across the ditch with New Zealanders Hayden Williams and Kaleb Currie slotting into the field while two-time WA Speedcar champion Tom Payet also is making the long trek to the popular Victorian venue to race.
Round two of the annual Wingless Summer Slam has attracted near 60 entrants with Simpson’s Matthew Symons who is the reigning tournament champion and Luke Weel, Warrnambool brothers Harry and Alex Ross, James and Sam Wren of Ballarat, Portland’s Luke Storer, Brad and Jake Warren and Narre Warren South’s Christopher Temby all in contention.
One of the more interesting battles will be in the strong field of 46 Formula 500s who are chasing their Dash for Cash tournament across three venues including Simpson.
Australian champion Dylan Beveridge, Tim Rankin, Jack Bell, Angus Hollis, Kayden Iverson and last start feature winner at Simpson Dylan Willsher will push for podium finishes.
Gates open at 4pm and cars on track from 5:30pm.
