Victorian title triple header this Easter weekend at Alexandra Speedway

With racing this coming Good Friday and Easter Saturday, Alexandra Speedway is once again going to be hive of activity with not one, not two, but three Victorian titles to be decided across the two nights of racing. The Speedway Sedans Victoria Junior Sedan title, the Victorian Speedway Council Junior Standard Saloon title, and the Victorian Speedway Council Sports Sedan title

Fresh from the national title this past weekend, the Speedway Sedans Victoria Juniors have a busy week ahead tuning and fixing cars and for some of the interstate competitors staying behind, a chance to site see around the beautiful Murrindindi Shire. Cars from as far as Western Australia, Queensland and down from Tasmania are all competing with many local Alexandra members keen to win one of the two big titles this week. Watch for Linken and River Paterson, Jayden Bryant, Breanna Simpson, and Jack Randall as just some of the Alexandra member drivers seeking victory.

In the Junior Standard Saloon Victorian title, the field is the biggest for around fifteen years. The class is predominately a Gippsland dominated class with South East Melbourne and South Gippsland youngsters and Latrobe Valley youngsters at the front of the class. Damon Ingram from Warragul will defend his crown at Alexandra. His toughest competition will come from Linken Paterson of the Alexandra club who will be competing across two classes all weekend. Harry Cecil, Owen Cecil, Nathan Miles, and Beau Stuchbery are others that have been mixing it with Damon this season whilst Blake Smith, Chase Ingram, Dylan Barrow, Hunter Carey, Rhys Meakins, and Tyler McDermott are other racers to keep an eye on. Barrow in particular just won his own Victorian title in the Open Sedan Junior class at Wahgunyah on Sunday.

Sports Sedans are the premier club class in the North East of Victoria and the Goulburn Valley. Damien Miller a former champion and last start winner at Alexandra in the class almost setting new class track records, is the favourite heading into race night. Damien’s brother Brendan is in the line-up and runs just as hard and fast and other Alexandra club members capable of a title victory including Josh Service, Luke Fallon, Robert Garlick and Steve Kershaw. Local competitors will be up against drivers from Bendigo, Echuca, Wangaratta, and across the South East of Melbourne.
