Mark Robinson and his team couldn’t have asked for a better start to their 2019-20 season, with two victories from as many starts boding well for the remainder of the season.
Making the long eight-hour trek south from his home in Lismore, New South Wales to Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway last Saturday night off the back of winning the Lord Mayor’s Cup at Lismore Speedway recently, Robinson’s effort well and truly paid off.
The NSW # 9 Castrol / Southside Truck Centre supported Troyer pilot enjoyed a great battle with Todd Hobson and Scott Cannon before besting his competition to take the feature-race lead on lap 11, going on to claim what was his fourth career win at Valvoline Raceway.
With only one more race meeting scheduled to take place at the premier track prior to the Australian Championship in late February, Robinson’s confidence would now no doubt have received a significant boost.
“It’s great to have been able to pick up some positive track time at Valvoline Raceway in readiness for the Australian Championship later this season,” commented Robinson, who will hope to carry his winning form into his second appearance at Valvoline Raceway on February 1 prior to the Australian Championship from February 21-22.
“The team couldn’t be happier with how we’ve gotten the 2019-20 season underway. Now that we have some added confidence under our belts, we need to focus on maintaining this form throughout the rest of the season and more importantly during our titles and blue-ribbon events.”
Now enjoying a few weeks off before returning to the track on Boxing Day for the opening Mr Modified Series round on home soil at Lismore Speedway, Robinson and his team will then travel to Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway on New Year’s Day for the annual Paul Britten Memorial, followed by the NSW Title on January 4 at Grafton Speedway.
