Adelaide, AU — (October 28, 2012) — Last night the Speedway City season opened up with the best field of Sprintcars ever assembled for a season beginning “Club Show” with 22 cars in the pit area and it was one of the interstate invaders who captured the win as Robbie Farr took home the money in round 1 of the Revolution Racegear Track Championship. After trailing early race leader Brad Keller Farr took command just prior to the half way mark and went on to claim a convincing win over Keller and defending Track Champion Luke Dillon.
“This puts us in great shape heading into next weekend’s Masters and makes up for last week at Murray Bridge. It is great to have three big events in South Australia in three weeks and we are pleased to be able to race here (in South Australia) and help out Tim (McAvaney) and Wendy (Turner).
Brad did a great job tonight he had a really good car and Luke once again was on the pace as he always is here” added Farr after the event.
Runner up Keller was pleased with the result and it was a great way to kick off his track championship campaign. “We had a good car tonight. Kenny Mac from KRE has built us a great engine and my team really worked hard tonight. We have been fast all season, we were right there last week until we got involved with a lapped car so tonight makes up for that.
“We only got beaten by Robbie Farr so I can handle that” he added with a smile.
Following Dillon home in fourth was the very impressive Steven Caruso, with Shaun Dobson rounding out the top five.
Earlier the heat wins went to Leith Ahlfors, Mark Reuter, Farr and Keller.
Unfortunately Steven Lines was an early casualty on the night after riding out a massive crash following a huge wheelstand while Matt Egel also failed to start the 25 lap A-Main after rolling his new Cool in heat 3.
The 360ci Sprintcars were also on the program with Chad Ely dominating the 12 lap final defeating Shane Hendry, Brendan Quinn, Keke Falland and Trigger Gates.
The JD Couriers Super Sedan Track Championship also kicked off with some great racing but it was the defending Track Champion Bill Miller who emerged victorious over Michael Miller, Dave Gartner, Luke Dodding and Steve Letts. The heat winners were Wayne Vickers and Michael Miller.
In the Universal Metal Cleaners Wingless Sprints it was Jarman Dalitz who claimed his first career Speedway City feature win, Darren Flatman won yet another Street Stock event while Ryan Alexander continued his great early season form as claimed his second AMCA National A-Main event for the season.
The next event at Speedway City will be this Saturday night with the running of the annual Australian Sprintcar Masters feature Garry Brazier, Robbie Farr, Shaun Dobson, David Murcott, Matt Young and all of the local “South Aussie Posse”.
