Farr takes Krikke Boys Shootout

Dateline Perth Motorplex March113th

Writing pieces as I do on Speedway for my various social media Platforms it is kind of important that I remain as neutral as best I can. But I must admit that from time to time I tend to have a favorite driver and I guess it shows a little.

Last in Perth one of most prestigious events the Krikke Boys Shoot Out was a super success in front of a massive crowd .The Journey Man as I refer to him  Robbie Farr a driver I have followed and admired for many years proved yet again what a marvelously talented driver he is after recording his 7th Kirrke Boys Shoot Out win  .A year when his time at East Coast Pipe Lines Hi Tec Oils partnership came to end the Journey man had to look for new opportunities and his talent and commitment as a racer were welcomed by the guys at the  JPM #14.Car Team.

Farr an amazingly talented hard, fiercely competitive, and versatile warriors of the dirt proves yet again he is “FARR FROM A SPENT FORCE”

Robbie won from Jason Kendrick and the in-form Callum Williamson. This win was Robbie’s 7th Krikke Boys Shoot Out victory

COVID CANCELLED NEW ZEALAND MIDGET TITLE

COVID Canceled NEW Zealand Midget Title, with assistance from the Government!

Across the ditch COVID has struck again assisted by the New Zealand Government when it was announced from midnight last night Auckland will be locked down level 3 for a long 5 days. No doubt there will be many casualties and many disappointed locals at their Governments overreaction. One casualty was the New Zealand Midget Title set down for decision last night.

One case of transmission and the joint is locked down gives one little confidence in the Governments contract tracing and confidence in the people of Auckland to follow social distancing and good health practices.

The Title was postponed after a couple of heats on the final night once the announcement was made and now will have to be completely rerun.

With vaccine run out well underway and the virus well contained it is hard to understand how some Governments think. New Zealand you are not alone we have our share of dictators in Aussie land .

No one will convince me that these reactive decisions are not simply Politicians flexing their newly acquired power rather than from logical thinking based on the real situations.

So sorry the fan missed out and for the efforts put in by Teams to ready them self’s for the Title. We now wait for the reschedule event. No matter what our views rules must be followed so stay safe everyone

With Manders and Kingshott his Series challengers Williamson night was made just that little easier when Kaiden Manders crashed out of the opening Feature and was done for the nigh suddenly the three-car race was reduced to two.

With a margin over Kingshott and starting on the front row the task for Williamson in the deciding Feature was simple just to finish in from of the Krikke Motorsports driver and the Championship is his and the Teams.

The feeling was extra special for Williamson and his Team as this was their maiden Championship win.

Maddington Toyota Sprintcar Series final five : Williamson first Kingshott finished the series in second and Kris Coyle in third.  Defending Champion Jason Kendrick was fourth ahead of a disappointed Kaiden Manders in fifth.

Race declared, Good for Goodyer

Hi-Tec Oils Speedway Toowoomba 20th February 2021

Last night at the Hi-Tec Oils Toowoomba Speedway Jock Goodyer was in the lead at the right time and it pays to be there especially if the race is declared. The annual Lord Mayors Cup was set for an exciting race and it certainly did not disappoint.

With just three laps before the checker Luke Oldfield crashed and caused race ending damage to the catch fence. Oldfield had worked hard to come within striking distance of both McHugh and race leader Goodyer. Oldfield was uninjured we can only guess at the disappointment.

The race was declared with three laps left gifting the win to Goodyer. Although McHugh lead the race early and maintained a lead it was the harassment from Goodyear that gave him the late race lead and had the number #22 in the lead at the right time. Second was awarded to McHugh and third to Cody Maroske. Kratmann and Kelly completed the top five.

Speedcars in South America

While I am missing my Speedway here in Sydney bailed up by COVID Restrictions I realize how lucky I am to have friends around the World who kindly share information and best of all images. One of my recent fiends is Adrian Franza from Bueno Aires in Argentina and he regularly shares images of Speedcar racing or if you are in the US Midgets from his homeland Argentina , South American,

I though today I would share some images, the race cars appear a little different to what we are used to here in Australia /New Zealand or even in the US. Nevertheless, dirt flies just the same with plenty of wheel lifting and backing into the corners. No matter where you are the thrill is just the same.

Wherever you are logging from I hope you will enjoy these images.
