Huge opening day show for Daylesford Speedway this Saturday

With a beautiful sunny day and temperatures in the mid-twenties range expected for this Saturday, motorsport fans and people looking for some good ole sporting entertainment or looking for something different, should head out to Daylesford Speedway to see all the local Daylesford class heroes plus the Victorian state series rounds for the Sports Sedans, Standard Saloons and Victorian Speedway Council Junior Sedans.

Over ninety competitors will give their all at Daylesford Speedway with the first event for the season at the venue always an enjoyable day. The three Victorian Speedway Council councils are competing for state series points with the Standard Saloons line-up attracting twenty-six eager competitors, Sports Sedans over twenty and Juniors from various parts of the state.

There is notable talent from the top of the line-up to the bottom in the Standard Saloon Super Series, starting with the point-score leader Wayne Sheerman from Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. Daylesford members Tim Hutchinson and Aaron Meakins are two of Victoria’s best competitors in the class that would like nothing more than to win on their home track. Andrew Cormack has tasted feature race victory previously at his tough Bairnsdale home venue and is in the field as is Brendon Eames from Victoria’s northeast another front of the field campaigner in big events.

Rick Stowe, Bailey Sinclair, Dean Pederson, Patrick Walsh, Rob Tatterson, Steve Dadswell, Aaron Cormack, Micheal Fleming-Robertson, Trevor Crilly, and Sean Connolly are others in a big field that could finish with the big victory.

Fresh off a victory last weekend in Victoria’s Southwest, Jamie Paull Is a standout nomination at Daylesford this Saturday. The twice Victorian Sports Sedan champion leads twenty plus Sports Sedans into the latest round of the Sports Sedan Power Series. Bendigo racer Bradin Claridge and Dale Smith whom have both won rounds of the series this season also, are in the field and the current series point’s leader Robert Garlick who has a victory previously at Daylesford under his belt will be hoping for another this Saturday.

With Dillon Taylor, Shane Simpson, Scott Angus, Troy Glassborow, Felicity Roycroft, Joel Copeland, Andre Meunier, Russell Smith, Jacob Blencowe, and Daylesford’s own Sarah Meakins in the field also, picking a winner is mighty tough. Another enjoyable day of racing from the Sports Sedans is assured.

Daylesford members also have the start of their home track point score this weekend with great fields across the Modifieds, Street Stocks, Ladies and Junior classes. The Modifieds include the likes of new to the class, Coby, and Reece Kakoschke. The two Kakoschke lads are keen to motor along in their senior careers having both stepped up from Junior Sedan racing.

Bailey Kakoschke and Jhett Cruise in the Junior Sedans have some impressive results on the board behind them already however Blaize Majok-Edwards, Blair Botheras, and Ben Carrington are just some of the youngster’s keen to advance and show their confidence behind the wheel moving forward.

Des Robinson the Street Stock club champion started his season with a win recently at Rushworth in the Goulburn Valley and is keen to pick up the first win of the year on his home track, however he has a stiff field to contend with including Glen McCoubrie and Chris Hay who finished second and third to him in the point score last season. Those three will need to contend with Mick Dann one of Australia’s best known Street Stock racers, Mitch Viney, David Clark, and Jamie Crutchley amongst others.

Whilst in the Ladies Sedans, Ebony Trainor, Jane Laidler, Kate Meyer and Richelle Jenner have history at Daylesford; it could be Chloe Graham, Charmaine Bryans, Sammie Broome, or Hayley Walker that picks up a huge season opening victory.
