Heinrich Claims Number Five

Posted on June 12, 2017 at 8:35 AM

Sunline Speedway concluded the 2016/17 speedway season with an action packed meeting on Sunday, with the meeting beginning under beautiful sunshine and concluding under lights.


The main event on the program was the Steve Butcher Memorial for Street Stocks, with 19 drivers attempting to add their name to a must win trophy for the class. The heat races showed that it was going to be a tight contest with Rhys Heinrich, Jason Gibbs, Des Birkin and Nigel Reichstein each claiming a heat win. For the main event, it would be Heinrich and Reichstein that would lead the field, ahead of Phil Watson and Gibbs. Whilst this race is one that everyone wants to win, it seemed that everyone wanted to win it in the first few laps with numerous restarts required to get more that a lap completed. Once the dust had settled, Heinrich claimed the win which is his fifth in six years. Reichstein finished second from Brooke Ferguson, Steve Heinrich and Anthony Buchanan.


The stars of the future took to the track for the final of the Junior Sedans Track Championship. As they had done at the previous meeting, Heath and Nathan Thorne elected to start all races from the rear, but the results remained that same with each of the brothers claiming a heat win. Aaron Tranter and Tom Richter would start the feature from the row ahead of Ashlee McEwin and Paige Goldsack-Gwynne. A late race caution set up a tight finish with Nathan holding on from Heath to claim a narrow victory, McEwin was third, followed by Drew Flatman and Goldsack-Gwynne.

As with the Robert Gwynne Memorial, the Thorne brothers managed to end the Track Championship tied on points. The overall win was awarded to Heath due to winning 3 features to Nathan’s 2. Third went to McEwin ahead of Tom Richter and Lachie Gwynne.


The Modified Sedan Championship was well represented with 8 cars competing with several drivers Mildura making the trek across the border to attempt to take home the $500 prize. Bradley Hammond and David Smith were victorious in the 2 heat races and allowed to Smith to start the Feature from pole ahead of Wade McCarthy, Hammond and Trevor Raams. All drivers put on a great display of racing to go non-stop for the 20 laps on offer, a feat that hadn’t been achieved since the track had been reconfigured ahead of the 2014/15 season. Smith was able to hold off McCarthy over the last couple of laps fort the win and to have the honour of having his name attached to the track record. Ben Tuttle claimed third, after earlier missing the first heat race, ahead of Hammond and Raams.


Wingless Sprints started off the meeting with an uneventful race that was claimed by Aaron Doe. However, there was plenty of emotion on display in heat 2 when Aaron Doe made contact with his brother Keir Doe in turn 3, which resulted in Keir rolling several times and causing a fuel leak that was quickly attended to by the CFS. With the cars parked under due to the red light, Keir made his way over to Aaron to tell him what he thought with officials presents ensuring that nothing got out of hand. Once the heat was restarted, Lucy Evans powered to the win. Evans would start the feature from pole and would be able to withstand the pressure that was applied from Aaron Doe to claim victory. Anthony McMillan finished third from Melissa McMillan and Cheian-May Perrett.


13 AMCA’s took to the track but unfortunately Michael Qualmann didn’t re-emerge after a first heat incident. Jeremy Moore and Darren McCarthy each claimed a heat win, which was no mean feat as each driver started 13th and 9th respectfully to do so. High point scores in their other heat race meant that they would start the feature from the front ahead of Jason Robinson and Jeremy Fenner. From the drop of the flag, Moore looked to have the race in control and would end up claiming a comfortable win. McCarthy had a tougher time in finishing second, being pushed hard all the way by Robinson and Fenner.


Modlites welcomed the returning Matt Egel to the class after a win on debut at Sunline’s last meeting in May. A small field of 6 cars was reduced to just 4 when Brooke Alexander and Michael Brown were unable to continue after the first heat. Brian Chadwick looked like he had his Sunline mojo back with wins the in 2 heat races and entering the feature would’ve wanted to make it a clean sweep. It wasn’t to be for Chadwick as Scott Webb showed everyone how it’s done and powered away to claim the win, as well as lowering the track record by .27 seconds. Egel was second from Chadwick and Jake Lewis.


Rounding out the program was the Super Sedan with 5 cars in attendance; Daniel Obst and Steve Schwarz with a heat win each. There was some confusion in the second heat after Michelle Dillon made heavy contact with the main straight wall, causing heavy damage to the #75 machine. With the red lights on, the water truck entered and completed a lap watering the racing surface mid race. Due to this, the officials elected to restart the race whilst reducing the race distance by 2 laps. Feature time and Schwarz and Obst started from the front but would soon be overtaken by Jason Gantz, who would go on and claim the win. Terry Brown finished second ahead of Obst and Schwarz.


Sunline Speedway would like to thank everyone that assisted at any point during the 2016/17, the officials and volunteers, drivers and crews, sponsors and the fans that made this season one to remember. Planning is well underway for the 2017/18 season, with Opening Night set for the 17th February with the return of a round of the Australian 360 Sprintcar All Stars series.

Nelson Claims SA Street Stock Title

Posted on May 21, 2017 at 8:35 AM

Saturday Night saw Sunline Speedway play host to the 2016/17 SA Street Stock Title, proudly sponsored by United Speedway Association, Active Motor Wreckers and Jack Daniels. 25 drivers fought hard over the 3 rounds of heats to earn points towards their starting positions for the 25 Lap main event. It was an early shower for Matthew Maynard, who was out for the night after the first lap of the first heat. There would be more hard luck stories throughout the night with numerous drivers striking trouble at some stage. Once everything had settled, Mark Gartner looked like the man to beat with 3 heat wins from his 3 heats to claim pole position. As the cars entered the track for the presentations ahead of the Title, the car of Corey Sandow, who had qualified 7th, failed to show. Unfortunately for Sandow the gearbox had cried enough in the pits and he had to watch from the sidelines. That left 19 cars to battle for the converted SA #1 and those present were treated to some great racing. At one stage it looked like it would be last car standing as drivers pulled out at regular intervals with car issues (over half the field failed to finish). After his dominate run, Gartner looked to have the Title in the bag, only to get a flat tyre 4 laps from the end. Gartner’s misfortune was Matt Nelson’s good fortune and raced on to claim the Title ahead of Rhys Heinrich, whilst Gartner was able to limp home and claim 3rd. A small consolation for Gartner is that he now holds the 1 lap track record which he lowered earlier in the race.


Junior Sedans contested Round 4 of their Track Championship whilst supporting beyondblue. During the night, drivers walked around the Venue rattling their tins with the crowd digging deep with their donations. The Thonre brothers of Heath and Nathan elected to shake things up this meeting by starting all of their races from the rear of the field. Whilst this opened up the potential for some new winners during the 3 heat races, Heath claimed 2 heat wins whilst Nathan claimed the other. The feature saw Paige Goldsack-Gwynne and Ashlee McEwin start from the front row, with Nathan and Heath starting rear, in 11th and 12th. However, it didn’t take long until there was a familiar look to the front of the running order and Heath claimed the win ahead of Nathan. Goldsack-Gwynne unfortunately retired mid race whilst McEwin put in a strong race to be best of the rest in third followed by Rory Moroney and Tom Richter. With 1 Round left in the Track Championship, Heath holds a narrow 8 point lead over Nathan, whilst it looks like an exciting battle for 3rd with McEwin, Richter and Lachie Gwynne separated by just 28 points.


AMCA Nationals held their annual Spectacular, proudly sponsored by Load 28 with a smaller field from what graced the Venue last meeting for their State Title with 9 drivers in attendance. Benny Aworth started the night strong, establishing a new 8 lap track record in the first race of the meeting. Darren McCarthy would claim the 2nd heat to set up an all Victorian front row for the 20 lap Spectacular. Aworth proved too strong in the feature, claiming the win ahead of Tasmanian Rod Bassett and Victorian Frank Thierry, showing up the local drivers with Travis Litterini the best South Australian in 4th.


Modlites had a small field of 7 cars, but welcomed Sprintcar driver Matt Egel for the night in the Michael Brown #52 machine. Whilst Brian Chadwick claimed the first heat, Egel took the second heat and appeared to be at home driving one of these pocket rockets. The feature race will be one that’s spoken about for some time to come. After several stoppages, the finish was set up with a 2 lap dash. Chadwick led with Scott Webb and Egel close on his heels. On the last lap, Egel got a great run out of turn 2 and was able to go around the outside of both of them on the last corner to claim a narrow win on debut. Chadwick held on to second from Webb and Jake Lewis.


In a pleasing sign to many, Modified Sedans had 8 competing which hopefully is a sign that the class is starting to rebuild after a long period of low numbers locally. Adam Haseldine claimed the win in heat 1, whilst Trevor Raams seems to finally be on top of his long time car issues and powered to the win in heat 2. After consistent results in the heats, Justin Demaine and Ben Tuttle started the feature from the front row. Tuttle got the early jump and was quickly followed by Trevor Raams, who pushed Tuttle hard all race. However, most eyes were on the battle for 4th with Marty Raams and Matt McClure racing each other hard with plenty of panel rubbing. Tuttle claimed the win ahead of Trevor Raams, Demaine, McClure and Marty Raams.


Wingless Sprints rounded out the program and enjoyed the track conditions as 2 track records were lowered during the night. Keir Doe started the night with a win in heat 1 before his brother Aaron claimed heat 2 and lowered the existing 8 lap track record. The 2 brothers would start from the front row in the feature, which needed 2 attempts to get under way. Aaron went in too hot into turn 1, which turned Keir, who was collected by Dan Evans. Both brothers were able to resume but unfortunately for Evans the race was over with a flat left rear tyre. On the 2nd attempt, the Doe brothers were overpowered by Travis Beasley who would go on to claim the win and lower the 12 lap record. 2nd place went to Aaron Doe, followed by Brad Beasley, Keir Doe and Lucy Evans.


Sunline Speedway’s final meeting for the 2016/17 season will be the traditional day meeting, to be held on Sunday the 11th of June. Street Stocks will be back in action with the running of the Steve Butcher Memorial, sponsored by Active Batteries. Junior Sedans will contest the Final Round of their Track Championship. Modified Sedans will be racing for their Track Championship, proudly sponsored by Haseldine Automotive & Active Motor Wreckers, whilst Wingless Sprints, Super Sedans, Modlites and AMCA’s round out the big program. As this is a day meeting, gates will open at 10am with racing from 12 noon.

Collins Claims SA AMCA Title

Posted on April 23, 2017 at 6:50 AM

Saturday night saw 20 drivers from across 4 states, as well as 3 State and 1 National Title holder contest the AMCA Nationals South Australian Title, proudly sponsored by United Speedway Association, Lucas Olis and Sprint Auto Parts Salisbury. Drivers faced 3 rounds of heats through the night before battling for the Title over 30 laps. Heavy rain on Thursday had left the track a little rough in spots but all drivers handled the conditions well. Tasmania’s Daniel Brooks and South Aussie Jeremy Moore had taken 2 heat wins each and finished the heats tied on points, and would go on to start the Title race from the front row. The heat races proved tough for many drivers, including Australian Champion Tim Reidy, who after failing to finish in his first heat would start the Title race from position 14.


Come time for the main event, and it seemed to be a case of last driver standing. On lap 2, Brooks had an engine let go when in second whilst 2 laps later Moore also experience mechanical issues and retired from the lead. In total 9 cars retired from the race, 4 of which started from within the top 6 with various mechanical issues. Victorian Champion Jamie Collins kept out of trouble and was able to take out the Title, and add South Australian #1 to his car. Collins was pushed hard over the closing laps by Darren McCarthy and Jake Armstrong. Fourth went to Tasmanian Rod Bassett ahead of Jeremy Fenner, Jason Robinson, Benny Aworth, Mark Janssan, Robert Thomas and Sharon Tindal.


Junior Sedans were racing in the final round of the Robert Gwynne Memorial as well as Round 3 of the Sunline Track Championship. The Thorne brothers of Heath and Nathan continue to dominate at the Venue this season, taking all 4 heat wins that were on offer to secure the front row for the feature. The brothers fought hard in the feature, with Nathan emerging the victor and establishing a new 20 lap track record. However, most people were focusing on the battle for the minor places. Torry Moroney looks like a driver to keep an eye on for the future with a great drive that netted him third place ahead of Lachie Gwynne and Sharni Pitcher. After the 2 Rounds of the Robert Gwynne Memorial, Nathan and Heath Thorn couldn’t be split and were joint winners, followed by Tamika Pitcher, Sharni Pitcher and Lachie Gwynne.


Super Sedans were another class chasing points as the contested the final round of their State Series, as well as round 3 of their Country Series. Kym Jury’s night ended early after only 4 laps after developing car issues and electing to park it. Paul Blenkiron claimed the 2 heat races on offer and was looking the goods in the feature until hitting a rut in turn 2 just the wrong way. This allowed Terry Brown through and was able to hang on to claim his maiden win in the class. Jake Ashworth finished second ahead of a disappointed Blenkiron, Jason Gantz and Michelle Dillon.


Modlites rounded out the program with only a small car count on offer with 7 cars competing. Brian Chadwick and Cory Hodgson each took a heat win each during the night. However, with some driver electing not to contest the feature, only 3 cars took to the track. Chadwick took the feature win ahead of Mick Lewis and Scott Webb.


Sunline Speedway’s next meeting is on the 20th May, headlined by the South Australian Street Stock Title, proudly sponsored by United Speedway Association and Jack Daniels. Junior Sedans will have Round 4 of their Track Championship and will be joined by Wingless Sprints, Super Sedans, Modified Sedans, Modlites and the AMCA Spectacular.

Weather fails to dampen on track action

Posted on March 13, 2017 at 6:10 AM

Whilst the weather threatened, and even provided a few light showers, Sunline Speedway was able to complete a full program of events on Sunday Night. This also included that last minutes addition of Formula 500’s, as their State Title had been rained out the night before at Mt Gambier. The night started with an emotional tribute to Super Sedan competitor Bill Miller, who lost his battle with cancer on Saturday morning.


V6 Sprints contested their second and final night of their King of the Riverland series. After Night One, Chris James had a handy lead after claiming maximum points, ahead of Michael Buxallen, Steve Agars and Brock Lane. James started the night well, claiming the first heat win before finally being beaten by Danny Pauley in heat two. Kym Simon put in a stellar drive in the top six Pole Shuffle, elevating himself from sixth to the front row, only to be denied pole position by James. Come Feature race time, and James again proved to be the class of the field. Agars didn’t let him have it easy, but he wasn’t able to do much besides watch James claim victory. Simon finished third ahead of Lane, Daniel Thwaites, Buxallen and Darryl Barkla. Once the points were tallied, it was no surprise to find that James had claimed the King of the Riverland crown, ahead of Agars, Lane and Buxallen.


Junior Sedans had a massive field with 23 cars competing for their own two night Riverland Cup, as well as points for Round 1 of the Robert Gwynne Memorial, and Round 2 of the Junior Sedan Track Championship. Nathan and Heath Thorne finished Night One of the Riverland Cup tied on points and would be a battle between them to claim the Cup. The battle for third would be a very different story with many of the field in with a shot, ensuring that the racing during the night would be fierce. Going into the Feature, the Thorne brothers were still tied on points, with Heath and Nathan claiming 2 heat wins each during the night, meaning that it would be winner take all in the Feature. Whilst its sounds like the Brothers had it easy, that had been pushed hard by Tamika and Sharni Pitcher during the heats and both would be starting inside the top five for the feature. Whilst looking under pressure early, the Thorne brothers pulled away from the rest of the field after a mid race caution. Heath claimed the win and the Riverland Cup ahead of Nathan; Tamika finished the feature third ahead of Sharni, but it would be Sharni on the final step of the podium by a slender five points.


Super Sedans were running Round 2 of their United Speedway Association Country Series with 6 drivers in attendance. However, it might has well been renamed the Kym Jury show after he dominated the evening, claiming both heat race wins to secure pole position for the Feature. Jury’s dominance continued in the Feature, winning the 15 Lap race and in the process establishing a new 15 Lap track record. Second was Quenton Thompson from Jason Gantz and Terry Brown.


Street Stocks continue to gain valuable track time ahead of their State Title at the Venue in May, with 9 drivers competing over two heats and a feature. Steve Heinrich and Phil Watson took the honours in the heats, and were scheduled to start from the front row in the feature. However, Watson was unable to take the start due to experiencing clutch issues. This elevated Neville Nitschke to the front row. Heinrich took control of the race early and was able maintain this through the race to claim the win. Behind him, the racing was fierce with Nitschke and Darren Flatman trading places several times before Flatman started to fade; Nitschke claiming second ahead of Flatman and Tony Prideaux.


Modlites had 9 drivers competing and the crowd was wondering if any would be left by the end of the night. After various incidents in the first heat, only five cars were running and people were wondering if it would be last driver standing. However, it was good to see all cars return to the track to contest for the remainder of the event (even if Michael Brown switched to his second car before the feature)! Brook Alexander and Sam Martin each claimed a heat win and would start near the rear of the field, with lowest points Jake Lewis starting the feature from the front row with Danny Prade. Prade got a great start and was pushed hard by Brain Chadwick for the duration of the race but was able to claim the win by just a few car lengths. Martin came through the field to finish third from Michael Cowland and Denis Knowles.


Modified Sedans only had a small field but put on some great racing. Heat one saw Trevor Raams take a solid win despite the car sounding like a tractor over the last couple of laps. Things hadn’t improved by Heat two and Raams struggled for pace with Adam Haseldine claiming the win. The Feature only saw three cars finishing with Haseldine winning ahead of Justin Demaine and Marty Raams.


As mentioned earlier, Formula 500’s were a late addition to the program and 5 drivers made the trip to Sunline. Brad Stell and Joe Mercorella claimed the heat wins and would start the feature from the front row. From the start, Stell gained the lead and was able to withstand that challenge from Austin McDonald to take the feature win; Shaun Brown finished third and Mercorella fourth.


Sunline Speedway’s next meeting is on Saturday 22nd April with the running of the South Australian AMCA Title, proudly sponsored by United Speedway Association. Junior Sedans will contest their final Round of the Robert Gwynne Memorial as well as Round 3 of their Track Championship. Other classes on the program include Super Sedans, Street Stocks, Modified Sedans and Modlites.

 

 

 

Sunline Speedway this Sunday Night

Posted on March 5, 2017 at 9:30 PM

This Adelaide Cup long weekend sees Sunline Speedway hold its second meeting for the 2016/17 season. Sunday night will see 6 classes to the track, many of which will be competing at the Riverland Speedway the night before.


V6 Sprints are set to contest their annual King of the Riverland, held over two nights with South Australian Champion Chris James leading a list of drivers all capable of claiming the crown.


Junior Sedans have a huge field with over 20 cars nominated and it will be a busy night for the officials as the Juniors are racing for points in 3 different events.

Sunline Sizzles on Opening Night

Posted on February 19, 2017 at 6:05 AM

The biggest crowd for several seasons helped welcome in the 2016/17 season at Sunline Speedway on Saturday Night. Those in attendance witnessed some great racing from all classes with numerous track records being broken during the meeting.


After competing at Adelaide Motorsport Park the night before, the Australian Sprintcar All Stars series contested their first ever round at the Venue. 20 drivers took part in hot laps and time trials to begin the night; Cody Atkins starting the night well with Quick Time. Drivers then contested two rounds of heats, with Mark Caruso, Paul Solomon, Phil Lock and James Wren each claiming a heat win. The top 6 point scorers went into the Pole Shuffle and Dan Evans showed everyone how to get around the tight track, elevating himself from the third row to pole position.


The 30 lap feature race was looking like going the distance until lap 12 when Brenton Farrrer, who had been pushing Evans hard for the lead, spun working his way through traffic in Turn 4. From the restart, Evans was able to get a good run through traffic to claim a maiden All Stars Series victory, 3.7s ahead of Paul Solomon, Chris Solomon and Cody Atkins. Jack Gartner put in a great drive after earlier missing time trials with car troubles to claim fifth in the feature.


19 Junior Sedans contested Round 1 of their Track Championship with each driver contesting 2 heats. Whilst it might be a new season, the ones out the front haven’t changed with brothers Heath and Nathan Thorne continuing their streak at the Venue claiming all 4 heat wins between them. Heath and Nathan battled each other hard during the feature but this was interrupted 5 laps from the finish when Drew Flatman went over in Turns 1 & 2. Drew was able to walk away from the car under his own power and sat infield to watch the reminder of the race. Nathan claimed bragging rights over Heath after getting the upper hand on the restart; however most of the crowd’s attention was on third place. Zac Walters had third for most of the race but a late bump and run by Lachie Gwynne allowed him to pinch the final spot on the podium.


Street Stock drivers were getting in some laps ahead of their State Title, to be held at the Venue on May 20. Three heats were run during the night, with each driver contesting two of these. If luck is on his side, Darren Flatman looks like a man to watch come Title time after solid night. Whilst Jason Gibbs took victory in heat one, Flatman was too strong in his two heats, claiming the win in both. Starting from Pole Position in the Feature, Flatman didn’t have it all his own way, challenged hard and rubbing panels with Cade Cox. The lead changed hands a couple of times before Cox slowly started to drift back to the hard charging Bailey Heinrich. Heinrich, in his first start in the class, put in a great drive throughout the night, especially with starting rear in his two heat races. It also helps when coach for the night, his older brother Rhys Heinrich, is the current Australian Champion. Cox was able to hang on to second narrowly in front of Heinrich with Wade Fell in fourth.


Things started fast for the Wingless Sprints as Jason Bolitho crushed the existing 12 lap track record in the opening heat by a massive ten seconds. The joy of claiming this record was short lived however, as not only did Bolitho strike trouble in the next heat which ended his night, he also lost his new track record to Darryl Sloan. Sloan managed to lower the new record by a further two seconds to claim heat two. Come main event time and the crowd was entertained yet again, but there was no track record being broken this time. Two laps in, Casey Van Der Stelt had a spin in Turn 4 and made contact with Melissa McMillan. This contact caused the cars to become joined together and both cars performed several synchronised donuts in an attempt to separate from each other with no success. McMillan was able to continue but unfortunately Van Der Stelt had to retire only a few laps later due to damage. Out front, Dale Gisell was able to hold off the challenges to claim victory ahead of Travis Beasley and Darryl Sloan.


Modlites might have had a lower car count than at previous meetings, but these small cars really got to shine in front of such a large crowd, many of whom got to witness the class for the first time. With Brian Chadwick unavailable, Mick Lewis stepped into the #41 and joined his son Jake on track, which would’ve been a proud moment for the Lewis family. Cory Hodgson and Andy Maxwell Jnr claimed the two heat wins, but it would be Jake Lewis leading the field for the Feature with fastest to the rear main events in Modlites. Charging through the field, Sam Martin and Maxwell Jnr battled each other hard but fairly for the win. Martin was able to withstand the pressure and claim his first feature win ahead of Maxwell Jnr, Scott Webb and Chris Ferguson.


Sunline Speedways next event is a Sunday Night meeting on March 12th. Junior Sedans will be contesting Round 2 of their Track Championship as well as Round 1 of the Robert Gwynne Memorial. V6 Sprints will be running Night 2 of their King of the Riverland series after having Night 1 the previous night at Riverland Speedway. Super Sedan, Street Stocks, Modlites and Modified Sedans are currently down to complete the program. Gates set to open at 4pm with racing set to commence from 6pm. For further information and updates on upcoming events, be sure to look at the Sunline Speedway website and Facebook page.

Season 2015/16 Comes to a Close

Posted on June 13, 2016 at 2:25 AM

Fans were treated to a big day/night of action at the final meeting for 2015/16 at Sunline Speedway on Sunday. Racing commenced slightly behind schedule and finished under lights as the clock neared 8 p.m.


Street Stocks battled for the Steve Butcher Memorial, and battled is a very appt word to use. Whilst their 4 heat races were largely incident free, the main event was reminiscent of a demo derby. It took several attempts to get a lap completed as drivers battled to get clear track. One such incident put Buck Haynes into the wall hard in turn 2 ending his chances. Once green flag racing got going, it wouldn’t last long and fans were lucky to see a patch of 6 green flag laps. Throughout the carnage behind him, Sam Brumfield kept a cool head to claim the Memorial, ahead of Cade Cox and Jason Duell.


Junior Sedans were contesting the final round of the Robert Gwynne Memorial Track Championship. Whilst the top of the point standings were going to be largely unchanged, it was still a chance for some drivers to attempt to improve their spot. It was also farewell for some drivers as it was their last race in the class. The feature saw Heath Thorne take a narrow win from his brother Nathan whilst Ashlee McEwin showed great speed all meeting to claim third. Heath secured back-to-back Track Championships with Nathan taking second and Lachlan Gwynne finishing third.


The Sunline Modified Sedan Track Championship proved to be a great display of sedan racing with all drivers providing fast and clean racing. It was also the farewell for long time competitor John Burton, who has hung up the helmet for the last time. Recently crowned South Australia #1 Mark Sheen proved to be the man to beat, claiming the feature and establishing a 15 lap track record. He was pushed all the by Wade McCarthy and Terry Brown.


Early on it was looking like an early end to the Wingless Sprints when on the first lap of their first heat 4 cars were taken out it a big crash. Jason Bolitho was the unfortunate one to go over but thankfully all drivers were ok, and all but 1 of these cars was able continue in the next heat. Bolitho’s bad luck continued when coming out for heat 2 the driveshaft decided to part ways with the car along the back straight. Anthony McMillian took the feature ahead of Jason Gantz, these 2 drivers racing hard for the win in the closing laps, with Jay Brown in third.


AMCA’s had a well supported line up which included several Victorians coming across the border to mix it with the locals. Continuing on a recent string of great results, Jeremy Moore proved too good and claimed the Feature ahead of Darren McCarthy in second. The drive of the day goes to Raymond Hedley, who after failing to finish either of his 2 heats had to start the feature from the rear. But whatever mechanical issues he had earlier, they didn’t reappear and stormed from 11th to claim third, pipping Rod Basset (who drove Frank Thierry’s car for the feature) right on the line. One has to wonder if he started closer to the front, what might have been.


Modlites continue to display close and fast racing, but also that these little cars are built strongly. No clearer example was with Jake Lewis, who in heat 3 ended up on his roof in turn 4, only to be back on the track 3 races later for the feature. Whilst the car might not have been 100% right (as evident by the lack of panel work), it shows that these cars are well made. Ayden Elliot looked on track to claim the Feature after leading from the start, only for Michael Brown to come from 3rd with 2 laps to go and get by Elliot on the final lap. Elliot had to settle for second whilst Duran Cowland finished third.


Only 3 Super Sedans ventured to the track and provided some entertainment for the crowd; Kym Dury winning the feature ahead of Steve Schwarz and Robert Uren.


Rob Stevens and Jen Lemar would like to thank everyone who has helped out at the venue during the 2015/16 season in some shape or form. Whether it be in the form of sponsorship, assistance around the track, to all of those who help the meetings run. Thanks to all of the competitors that came to this great country race track and most importantly, thanks to all of the fans who constantly come and sit on the hill to cheer on their favourite drivers. We hope to be able to announce the 2016/17 season shortly but until then, keep an eye on the Sunline Speedway Facebook page and website for the latest news. Those wanting to join in and help out at race meetings, provide sponsorship or just offer your services around the venue, feel free to contact Rob and Jen on 0412 474 289.

 

Sunline Speedway To End 2015/16 With A Bang

Posted on June 3, 2016 at 11:05 AM

Sunline Speedway says goodbye to Season 2015/16 on the traditional June long weekend day meeting with over 70 cars currently nominated.


The blue ribbon event on the program is the Steve Butcher Memorial for Street Stocks. All eyes will be one Rhys Heinrich to see if he can claim an incredible 5 Titles in a row. But there will be plenty of strong competition with the likes of Flatman, Reichstein, Duell and Brumfield just to name a few.


Junior Sedans will be competing in the Final Round of the Robert Gwynne Memorial Track Championship with the battle to be played out between Heath and Nathan Thorne for the Title. However, there is plenty of bragging rights still up for grab with all drivers trying to improve their overall position in the final standings as well as claiming an elusive feature win.


The Modified Sedan Track Championship has a small but strong line up of drivers which include recently crowned South Australian Champion Mark Sheen. It will also feature as the farewell race meeting for veteran racer John Burton who has announced that this time it’s the final time he hangs up the helmet. We wait to see if he will continue to have numerous comeback tours like John Farnham.


While that is an impressive look to any program, the meeting will also feature Modlites, AMCA’s, Super Sedans and Wingless Sprints.


This is surely a must see event with all drivers having a final shot at glory for the 2015/16 as well as preparing for the 2016/17, which will be here before we know it. Gates open at 10am with racing from 12 noon. Adult tickets are just $20 with concessions $15. Family tickets are $45 whilst kids get in for only $5. For further information on this and all other things happening at the venue, keep up to date on the Sunline Speedway website and Facebook page. For those wanting to contact the promoters directly, please call Rob Stevens on 0412 474 289.


There will be NO sponsors evening after this meeting.
