Third Time Lucky for Daylesford Speedway?

Third time lucky?

Daylesford Speedway is hoping to get their season under way this Sunday starting just before lunch with a full show including all the clubs’ independent classes along with Vintage and Victorian Speedway Council classes.

Having been cancelled due to weather twice, the diligent committee has been busy in the basin working the track over and checking to make sure parking areas are strong and safe.

This Sunday the likes of Bailey and Reece Kakoschke in the Modifieds will compete with Ryan Daly, Ian Bartlett, Daniel Carter and Steven Warlond amongst a contingent of Modifieds sure to entertain. In Street Stocks the very consistent Glenn McCoubrie leads Chris Hay the club champion, Tim Hutchinson, the Glare brothers new Daylesford members, Ash Fox, David Clark, Anthony Bull, and others to battle.

Daylesford’s six-cylinder Junior Sedan class will see Noah Basten, Blair Botheras, Peyton Edwards – Daly, Blaize Majok – Edwards, Jhett Cruise and Ben Carrington clash for the victory whilst the Ladies will also be in action with drivers such as Jane Laidler, Ellen Vagg, Shelby Higginbottom, Richelle Jenner and Ebeny Bull.

The Victorian Speedway Council Standard Saloons will feature Daylesford’s Dean Pedersen against a number of Ballarat based race drivers including the Chivers boys Austin and Lachie, Jacob head, Bailey Sinclair, and Rick Stowe and Drouin’s Stephen Douglas and in the Junior 1200 Sedans fresh off victory at Drouin two weekends ago Arthur Hutchinson will compete with Riley Taylor and others.

For those who love nostalgia, the Aces of Spades Club will do some spirited demonstrations with their old Fords and Chevy Slopers.

The Canteen and some terrific vendors at the club will be operational Sunday. Daylesford Speedway has an onsite bar, no BYO allowed. $4 beers $6 Spirits.
