WINTER WARM UP FOR DIRT TRACK FANS WITH ALEXANDRA 3 HOUR ENDUROThis Saturday night August the 10th will see Alexandra Speedway warm up dirt track fans with hot on track action in the annual $2000 to win 3 Hour Enduro for Speedway Sedans headlining the afternoon and early evening event that includes support from some hard charging Junior Sedan racers. Last season’s lap record breaking brothers Damien and Brendan Miller are back to defend in a field full of super combinations.

Drivers have been busy hustling to form their combinations and some of the very strong combinations are super strong based on previous racing experience. Leigh Bourke and Zac Swanson bring Modified Sedan experience, with Bourke who hails from Geelong the 15 lap record holder for Sports Sedans this past season at Alexandra. Jake Drewett from Mildura teams with Warrick Howie from Chiltern, Howie won a state championship at Alexandra a few seasons ago.

Shane O’Brien teams with his brother in law and reigning 100 Lap Derby King Lennie Bonnici in Sedan and Chassis car combination and runner up in the recent Derby Warrick Taylor teams with Peter Cox in an all Chassis car team. 2012 Enduro winners Matt Nelson and Darren Nelson team together again also in a Sedan/Chassis combo and local Alexandra hero Luke Fallon a winner in 2017 teams with Healesville gun Steve Kershaw, both very consistent top five finishing racers.

Andrew Jordan and Lenny Bates have won the event before too and they are back to have another crack with Bates a driver who can make a deep run into the race before needing to switch with his teammate as history shows us and another potential strong combination is Tony Moule and Frank Ramsdale, if Ramsdale can get over some wretched luck in these Enduro events, he has a car that has won Enduro’s previously and Moule built his car which won the Derby five seasons ago.

The list goes on and on of strong line-ups and three hours of action can dish up anything. Expect over 200 laps to be completed with 282 laps the record set last season by the Millers the benchmark.

In Junior SSA Sedan racing the young ladies lead the charge with Kasey Garlick, Chloe Sheerman and Bree Simpson amongst the favourites to win, Garlick finished second in June in the Victorian Short Circuit Championship event and is the number one choice to win. The boys including Jayden Bryant, Luke Cornfoot, Dylan Barrow and Linken Paterson are hoping to spoil Garlick’s final Junior Sedan race before she graduates to the adult scene. It should be a terrific race with the sports future stars shining.

Racing starts from 2pm.
$50 for a family of 2 adults and 3 children between the ages of 10 to 16, $20 per adult and $10 for children aged 10 to 16 and aged and invalid pensioners.
