Ayden Elliott and Victorian Compact Speedcar Title podium finishes are now becoming quite a trend, following his third-place finish in last Saturday night’s 2018-19 season running of the event at Wangaratta City Speedway.
In what was his second Victorian Title podium finish in as many seasons, the 23-year-old racer managed to overcome a few car issues during his qualifying heat races to fight hard during the feature race to achieve a third-place finish.
“To finish on the podium again in a Victorian Title is a really satisfying result for the team and I,” expressed the Narellan, NSW-based racer, who travelled 600 kilometres one way from his home base to contest the Victorian Title.
“Earlier in the night we had a few car problems, and although there were a few issues during the feature race, which included overheating and the incorrect right-rear tyre choice, we were able to fight on and came away with a podium result.”
Earlier in the night, Elliott contested three heat races and came away with a third and a win; however, in the second heat race, he recorded a DNF, due to his NSW # 69 Hi-Tech Homes / United Reality supported Yamaha R1 powered Beast car losing power. Despite a DNF, Elliott still managed to start the Victorian Title deciding feature race from position three.
This Saturday night, Elliott will return to Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway for the latest NSW Compact Speedcar Club Championship round. After finishing third in his last outing at Valvoline Raceway earlier this season, he is on this occasion aiming to challenge for the top step of the podium. A fortnight later (February 2), he will be returning to Valvoline Raceway in the Compact Speedcar.
Elliott is proudly supported by the following 2018-19 season sponsors: Hi-Tech Homes, United Realty, Elliotts Painting Service, and Dean’s Tyre, Brake & Mechanical Repairs. He would like to thank Richard (dad), Fiona (mum), Brooke (girlfriend) and the rest of his family.
