• It may not be the biggest field, but the fifth round of the Super Sedan Summer Series promises to be a beauty with both Gary and Dustin Higgs returning to racing at the Make Smoking History Bunbury Speedway on Saturday night.

    Gary has been racing up and down the East Coast since November, in what initially was a brand new car, with instant success, finishing on the podium. Subsequent events would lead to heat race wins, as one of Western Australia’s best known Super Sedan drivers came to grips with the new car.

    The most recent trip to Tasmania also showed that the car had plenty of car speed, as Higgs battled with the best drivers in Australia at the Super Sedan Grand Prix. Unfortunately a week later at the Grand National, contact sent Higgs into a spectacular rollover, which ended the East Coast campaign, with the car needing plenty of attention, with the decision made to return the car back to Perth for repairs.

    Upon inspection, the car wasn’t significantly damaged and has been repaired, with its first event since the crash being Saturday night at Bunbury. The car will then be transported back to Mt Gambier for the National Title.

    For Dustin Higgs, it will have been 1041 days since he last competed in a Super Sedan, and he is looking forward to the challenge as he pilots Adrian Geary’s car in his absence. The car is not foreign to Dustin, as it is his old car.

    Higgs won five feature races in that season (2017), with the National Super Sedan Title at Albany his last drive, before his much publicised health issues. Dustin’s inclusion into the field is a significant one, and is sure to assist with some great racing which is expected.

    “I will even drag out the old Superman suit for the occasion”, Dustin joked.

    The Father and Son combination will race each other in the third and final heat of the night.

    Drivers will contest two heats each of the three allocated as support for World Series Sprintcars, with the first event scheduled for 6.00pm.
