Williams lifting his game
With his first full season in Limited Sprintcars almost in the history books, it’s become clear that Alex Williams has a lot to look forward to during his time with the class, with the 24-year-old having already achieved a number of impressive results.
It’s been a season of variety for Williams, who, in addition to his Limited Sprintcar schedule, has dabbled in multiple other classes, racing V8 Dirt Modifieds for Brad Cooper and placing second on home soil at Margaret River Speedway, finishing inside the top 10 of the WA Production Sedan Title Ellenbrook Speedway for Jayden McCuish, and piloting a Street Stock for Damien Amato at Margaret River Speedway, where his mum Lynda and his fiancée Jess were able to ride passenger.
Making his Limited Sprintcar debut during the 2017-18 season and contesting a reduced schedule, Williams showed great promise in the class, clinching his maiden feature-race win at the Perth Motorplex, along with finishing fourth overall in the Limited Sprintcar Association of WA Series point score and second in the Perth Motorplex Track Championship.
This season, he’s managed to go one better in each of the point scores by virtue of several strong performances aboard his # 47 Welcome Site Southwest & Event Rent / Southern Workwear & Ammunition backed Maxim.
Despite dropping a couple of Limited Sprintcar Association of WA Series rounds, one due to a crash in the feature race at Manjimup Speedway after qualifying in pole position, and the second due to a transporter issue while on his way to Geraldton Speedway, Williams’ consistency banked him enough points to place third overall, while also emerging victorious in the Perth Motorplex Track Championship.
“The Perth Motorplex Track Championship came down to the last round, so I was really happy to be able to wrap that one up and close out my season strongly,” said Williams, from the town of Rosa Brook, located just outside of Margaret River in WA.
“I lost out on some potential points due to missing a couple of rounds in the WA Series, but given that, I’m definitely still happy with third place. Next season I’ll be focusing on contesting each of the series rounds to hopefully come away with top honours.”
The next event for Williams will be the City of Karratha Sprintcar Stampede, which will be fought out over two nights on May 17 and 18 at Nickol Bay Speedway.
