During last weekend’s Bulk Fuel Australia Australian V8 Dirt Modified Championship at Toowoomba’s Hi-Tec Oils Speedway, it was Wayne Simpson’s NSW # 4 Sportsman Troyer car that stood out against the rest, with the driver picking up the Best Presented Car award.
Recently stepping into the class off the back of five seasons in AMCA Nationals, Simpson may not have been the most experienced driver at the Australian Championship event, which was only his second outing in V8 Dirt Modifieds, but having put significant effort into his sleek white, light blue and red car design, he certainly didn’t go under the radar.
“I wanted to go for something simple but that would stand out and it’s a design that I’m really proud of, so to be recognised for that, particularly seeing as though I’m new to the class, is a real honour,” commented Simpson, from Saratoga on the Central Coast of NSW, who had a great start to the weekend, receiving his award during Friday’s driver’s briefing.
“Even though I only have a couple of race meetings under my belt, I’m thoroughly enjoying my move into the V8 Dirt Modifieds class and the Sportsman category is a great introduction to the class. I’m looking forward to gaining more experience as the season progresses.”
Dirt Modifieds Australia President Darren Tindal has been impressed by Simpson’s approach to racing, with his impeccable car design being a great representation of what the class itself stands for.
“When drivers take pride in the appearance of their cars and their teams, it’s a great look for the class as a whole,” he commented.
“It’s great to see newcomers like Wayne putting their best foot forward when it comes to presentation and we were thrilled to be able to reward him with the Best Presented Car award during the Australian Championship. It’s a real testament to the professionalism of our class.”
