This Sunday Morning from 11am Drouin Speedway will provide a great day of family entertainment for everybody that makes their way out to Jindivick Road Drouin West with the Wingless Sprints and a feature event for the Standard Saloons headlining the days action, all the club classes will also be up for action with a great field of Junior racers and some Vintage and Classic cars from years gone by also. WINGLESS SPRINTCARS AND STANDARD SALOON FEATURE EVENTS HEADLINE DROUIN SPEEDWAY

Wingless Sprintcar nominations include entries from Aron Lawrence, Kim-Loong Gosling and Travis Evans amongst those already received. Evans had a win here last season at Drouin, and he is tough to beat at his home circuit where he spends hours helping with the preparation of the track for race day.

The Standard Saloons will compete for the Sally Walkinshaw Memorial an event honouring committee member Paul Walkinshaw’s late wife Sally. Sally loved her motorsport, in particular she loved Speedway and her family and friends. She will be thrilled to be honoured with an event in her name and the Walkinshaw family and friends are looking forward to seeing a terrific days racing with our first meeting winner Jeff Blencowe, Marcus Reddecliffe, Leigh Gooding, Steven Danks and former Victorian Champion Micheal Ardley all amongst the nominations so far. Blencowe has two feature wins from two starts in Standard Saloons so far this season and is the pre-event favourite going into Sunday.

Junior Standard Saloon action will be fierce also with the Drouin club’s Victoria number four ranked driver Jack Yeomans up against a tough line-up that includes Nathan Miles who was second on Sunday night at Nyora, his sister Maddison, Matt Shankland and Hunter Carey returns now that dad has fixed his smashed up race-car from the first meeting two weeks ago.

It is likely Division 2 Hot Rods and Sport Sedans will run together as Open Sedans, Jake Young who finished fourth in Sports Sedans Sunday night at Nyora Raceway and Robert Garlick are two strong nominations on the list at the moment.

Ladies Standard Saloon action will see our first meetings winner Hayley Hutchins on track with Natasha Curtis, Kate Stuchbery and Sharlene Laidlaw to do battle, the four will have to also face tough competition from Kayla Saunders, Jemima Borkowski and Erin Mitchell.

Vintage and Classic Super Modifieds and Sprintcars will also hit the track for fan’s who enjoy the older model cars still having a zip around the racetrack.

Gates open from 8am. Racing starts at 11am.

Entry will cost $15 for an adult, aged and invalid Pensioner and Children 12 to 16yrs is $10 and Children under 12 years of age are free. A family ticket for 2 adults and 2 children aged 12 to 16 will cost $40.
