At the top end of the Pro Class Saloon Cars here in Western Australia we were looking forward to another year of Boley v Grant to see if Brock could put the former Supercars driver firmly in his rear vision mirror for an entire season, however it will not be as Boley moves to TA2 racing in 2022.
Now we’re not sure if the departure of Boley has triggered the move but with the departure comes new arrivals into the Pro Class with Brock Ralph and Mike Holdcroft jumping into VT Commodores for this years classic Holden v Ford racing.
Steve Martin from Team Purple Racing is bringing a new VY Commodore to the grid and Carl Fanderlinden has a new AU Falcon arriving from Queensland.
Young driver Chase Hoy who managed a 4th place in the class in one of only a handful of outings in 2021 is expected to finally be back on the grid full time with his car undergoing extensive testing, tuning and redevelopment over the off season and for most of 2021.
In the PRO-AM class, apart from the departures to the PRO class, Shane Eather will be hoping this season is a bit kinder to him after his rough start in the last few races in the 2021 season.
Looking at the grid its still going to be a tough ask for anyone to take Grant’s spot at the top but with a mixture of young talent and eager competitors, could we see some more close racing at the top end of the field?
