WARNAMBOOL, VIC (January 10, 2021) — On what was a post card perfect night for Racing after a very warm and sunny Warrnambool afternoon, it was Luke Weel who held off all comers in the Wingless Sprint Summer Slam Series A-Main, while new track records were set in the Speedcar 15 lap final and the Formula 500 six lap dash.
Travis Mills was the dominant force in the Speedcars as he claimed the feature race win after the small but exciting field was inverted completely for the A-Main with Mills starting from the tail.
The Formula 500’s saw Josh Buckingham claim the six lap record with a new race time of 1:17.264 as he set himself up to claim the 20 lap A-main a little later in the night.
The 500’s raced without a caution for the evening highlighting the talent that was on display.
