Speedway: no limits

Going Speedway

TONIGHT at Grafton Speedway, it is the Limited Sedans turn to decide who will wear the NSW number one for the following season.

The Limited Sedans name suggests that there are many restrictions on the vehicles allowed in the division, but instead, nothing could be further from the truth.

This division is the most receptive to different style racecars, out of any division.

From a full-bodied road like vehicle through to a purpose built racecar, from a standard 4-cylinder through to a methanol-powered V8, they can all find a place to race in this division.

The variance of the cars in this division can make some very interesting racing, as each style of car can shine on different nights, depending on the track surface.

The top contenders tonight show the variety, with 5 completely different combinations.

Matt Egan has a full-bodied car with a potent Holden 6-cylinder, Dave Mortimer has a Holden 6 but it is in a full chassis racecar.

Quinton Clarke drives a Commodore with a V6 engine, Greg Moss has a turbo Ford 6 cylinder in a Cortina, and Max Jarvis has a 308 Holden engine in a full chassis Commodore.

Five completely different cars, all with differing characteristics, but all in with a big chance of snaffling the big one tonight.

Each car will compete in 3 x 10 lap heats and the important 25 lap feature. Twenty-two cars have nominated.

Other classes in the lineup tonight include the AMCAs, Stockers, Streeters, 4-cylinders and Juniors.

Two local AMCA drivers, who have not yet been able to bounce back to the track are Stuart Hall, whose car was destroyed in a fire, and Darren Forbes, who suffered a major crash.

Tonight at Grafton, the racing starts at 6pm.
