The AMCA Nationals will compete in a Victorian series round with valuable points and bragging rights up for grabs in their first event of the season also. Tim Reidy a former national champion and multiple times state champion right across Australia will resume his battle with former South Australian champion Dean Heseltine. The two lead protagonists won’t have things all their own way though as Mildura based competitor Frank Theirry, former Australia number two Paul Sullivan and Neale Peachey are just some of the competitive race drivers in the line up mostly running crate Chevrolet engines.
