Though Robbie Farr leads the overall series points, he doesn’t claim the Speedweek trophy due to the fact that he used his Joker card for the Avalon round. Joker cards do not have an effect on Speedweek standings.
“You can use the Joker for your series points,” explains WSS Competition Director Paul Trengove, “but they don’t have an effect on Speedweek standings.”
For Lines, his consistent Speedweek which included two wins (Speedway City and Avalon) a second place at Murray Bridge and a DNF at Mt. Gambier, netting him the victory from Brooke Tatnell in second, James McFadden third, Brad Keller fourth and Robbie Farr rounding out the top five.
“Obviously it’s a disappointing way to win,” concedes Lines, “but let’s face it we’re going to take the win. Now we’ll focus on heading to Brisbane and the next two weekends there.”
