Triple feature night with Sprintcars, Limited Sportsman and Ladies Standard Saloons at Bairnsdale

This Saturday night at Bairnsdale Speedway race fans will be treated to another terrific night’s action with three feature classes that include the Sprintcars, Limited Sportsman and the Ladies Standard Saloons whilst Standard Saloons and Division 2 Hot Rods will support the main events on a terrific night at the Speedway.

In Sprintcar action the last Sprintcar winner at Bairnsdale Dillon Siely returns to flight with tough competition to be provided by Adam Greenwood a recent winner at Rosedale, Alistair Bastian, Shane Steenholdt, and Michael Evans just some of the drivers entered, with many of them local East Gippsland based competitors. Some competitors will make the trip into town from the Latrobe Valley and West Gippsland to do battle with our local hot shots.

Nominations in the Ladies Standard Saloon 30 Lap Switch feature event has attracted Victorian champion Ally Morrison and Nyora club mate Sarah Price two of the front runners of the class to compete against the likes of Jemima Borkowski who won at Drouin two weeks ago, East Gippsland woman Danielle Solly who has some wins to her credit this season and experienced competitors Sharlene Laidlaw and Kate Stuchbery whom have both won in the last couple of seasons and Renae Parsons. It should be an excellent feature event where our Ladies shine.

The annual King of the Rock for Limited Sportsman has attracted all the top guns from the South West and Wimmera to join our local chargers. Jock Baker the Victorian champion and the runner up at the last state title Andrew Wilson are in the field as is Troy Curran the current South Australian champion. Add the likes of Craig Ansell, Katelyn Worthy, Bowen Donkers, and our very own Darren Adams and Mal Siely and the action should be flat out and full on at the front.

With the Victorian title for the Open Standard Saloon class at Bairnsdale on the March long weekend, a number of drivers are using Saturday as the last chance to get some laps in at Bairnsdale and make some decisions on set ups for their race cars. Mitch Foster, Shane and Chris Stewart, Nick Chrystie, Patrick Vuillermin, Josh Thomas, Andrew Cormack, Col and Jack Yeomans and Steven Dadswell are some of the competitors this Saturday night.

Rounding out the line-up is the Division 2 Hot Rods with Leigh Mitchell, Trent Wilson, and Troy Hutchison the three front runners this season set to resume battle, whilst the likes of Bobby Devine, Rob Tatterson and Jordan Haley will keep the pressure on those three and try to be a new winner this season.
