The Gambier Earth Movers backed SA20 of Glen Sutherland will return to the Classic having made the final 24 car field for the Classic A-Main in 2018.
With a plethora of laps around Sungold Stadium a good qualifying run will be the key for Mt. Gambier’s Sutherland who will be looking to improve again on his 24th place finish from last January.
Joining Sutherland in the field is the young Tasmanian Jock Goodyer, who has already shown he isn’t afraid to stand on the gas and mix it with the Country’s best.
With some top-notch equipment at his disposal and a hard-working team, Goodyer will return to Warrnambool having gained lots more valuable seat time since he finished 9th in C-Main 2 at the Classic in January.
