Anzac Cup day on Monday At Daylesford speedway

This Monday the annual Anzac Cup day will be held at Daylesford Speedway, a speedway built many years ago by returned servicemen from the local Returned Services League, racing will start at 11.30 am and every competing race category is vying for the honour of winning their class ‘Anzac Cup’ on this very special day.

A remembrance ceremony will be held on the day around 11am at the spectator RSL plaque and national flagpole. All spectators are competitors are invited to be involved by standing around as the ceremony progresses with the Ode, the Last Post, the Rouse, the national anthem and more with some assistance from a guest musical artist, Ricky from Mojo Jacket. Competitors and crew will be locked out of the pits for a short time whilst the ceremony is performed and let back in after it is completed.

Last Sundays Modified Sedan winner Brett Carrington returns for competition against a terrific line-up that includes Jayden Humphrey, the returning Blake Harris, Luke Humphrey, Coby and Reece Kakoschke, Ryan Daly, Daniel Carter, David Barrie, and Steven Warlond. The winner for this week is anybody’s guess, however Harris and Barrie have both won in their cars in recent visits to the Basin.

Katie Meyer it seems just cannot lose at Daylesford and she returns to try to take another win in the Ladies Sedans Anzac Cup. Ellen Vagg, Chloe Graham, and Richelle Jenner are just some of the fierce competition she will need to finish ahead of on Monday.

Daylesford Junior Sedans competition will see Bailey Kakoschke the red-hot favourite trying to pick up another win, this week though Jhett Cruise returns, and he will join Blaize Majok-Edwards and others trying to get the ‘W’ over Kakoschke.

Last week’s Street Stock feature race winner Chris Hay is on a high having won his first ever final. Hay is going for back-to-back with the likes of Ashley Fox, Des Robinson, Glenn McCoubrie, Anthony Bull, Ellen Vagg and Belinda Taylor in the field. The category at Daylesford produces very even competition so we could end up with a completely new winner this Monday.

Tim Hutchinson is the club’s standout Standard Saloon competitor, and he will look to pick up another win with the likes of Andrew Cormack a winner previously at Bairnsdale, Rob Tatterson a sport veteran, Bailey Sinclair, and Rick Stowe. Hutchinson is the most likely to win, it would be a big win for anybody else that could beat Hutchinson.

Another run for the Junior 1200cc Sedans will see Arthur Hutchinson from Daylesford club up against a healthy field of competitors that includes Connor Claridge, Ella Sheedy, Riley Taylor, and Bryce Leek who were all in the top five last time the class competed in the Basin. Hutchinson is proving hard to defeat in finals, could Monday be the day it happens?

Rounding out the on-track action will be the Ace of Spades vintage club in spirited demonstrations including know military veteran Col Chadwick who is looking forward to having a squirt on Anzac Day at a race track built by servicemen and women.
