  • With the Queensland Government having lifted the lockdown conditions that have been in place across Greater Brisbane this week, round two of the Easter Sprintcar Tri-Series will proceed as scheduled at Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night (April 3). Presented by SRV Freight and Beenleigh Mufflers, Brakes and Mechanical, the event will be the second of three consecutive nights of Sprintcar racing in south-east Queensland, with the other two rounds to be staged at Toowoomba Speedway. With the previous meeting at Archerfield having fallen victim to inclement weather, the Archerfield promotional team are very relieved to have secured approval for Saturday night’s event to proceed. In addition to a stellar field of Sprintcars, the meeting will also feature round eight of the TFH Midget Series, the Queensland Lightning Sprint Championship, round two of the Formula 500 Easter Tri-Series and round two of the Wingless Sprints Easter Trail, with more 130 competitors nominated for competition from across Queensland and interstate. Final competitor numbers will ultimately be subject to any border restrictions or isolation requirements in other states that might make travel to Queensland problematic for some competitors.

    The Sprintcar entry list includes a posse of NSW-based teams looking to avenge the ineptitude that exudes from their other sporting representatives whenever they take on Queensland. The most notable of these is former national champ Robbie Farr and third-generation gun Matthew Dumesny. Others trekking north include Brendan Scorgie, Jai Stephenson and Luke Stirton. Aboard the #56 that Michael Saller has piloted to some success at Archerfield, Farr will be making his first Brisbane appearance for the season, taking on more than 30 of Queensland’s best Sprintcar exponents, including current state champ and ECL Track Championship leader Lachlan McHugh, who has been a dominant force this season since replacing Farr in the East Coast Pipelines #7, having accumulated 10 feature race victories from 13 starts at Archerfield.

    Also feature winners in Brisbane this season, Callum Walker and Cody Maroske are amongst the starters once again on Saturday night, while Luke Oldfield continues his quest for a feature race success that has thus far eluded him, despite serving up several of the most memorable performances of the season. Certainly, Oldfield’s extended absence from victory lane is far from typical for the Gold Coast charger, however McHugh is the only driver to have featured on the podium on more occasions this season, so it surely won’t be long before we see this anomaly exorcised from the record books. Of the myriad others who will be spending their Easter weekend desperately seeking the spoils of victory, it is Aaron Kelly, Randy Morgan and Mitchell Gee who have been the best performed thus far, while the likes of Nicholas Whell, Ryan McNamara, Dylan Menz, Darren Jensen, Brent Kratzmann, Allan Woods and Tim Farrell have secured some solid results to prove themselves as potential spoilers should any of the regular front runners fail to fire.

    New Zealand expat Michael Kendall has stamped his authority on the last couple of rounds of the TFH Midget Series and he is unquestionably the benchmark performer heading into the weekend. The fact that the biggest local field of the season has nominated for competition, there certainly seems to be some collective intent to prevent Kendall from continuing his winning ways. Darren Vine, Brock Dean, Charlie Brown, Chris Singleton and Bodie Smith will be amongst those keeping Kendall honest, while Rusty Whittaker will also be a huge threat if he can cast aside the myriad mechanical maladies that have plagued his season. Opening round winner Brad Dawson is another genuine contender, while Lachlan Paulger and Nathan Mathers have proven themselves capable of disrupting the established pecking order.

    Wingless Sprints have taken their penchant for interstate rivalry to the next level with more than half of the 35 nominated competitors converging from all parts of New South Wales to contest the East Coast Freight Concepts Easter Trail, which also comprises two other rounds in Toowoomba. As if an interstate contingent that includes Mark Blyton, Jacob Jolley, David Eggins, Jason Bates, Black Darcy, Zach Pacchiarota and a couple of Sayres in Andrew and Luke isn’t already strong enough, the inclusion of Australian champ Kyle Mock raises the stakes considerably and will force the Queenslanders to be at their very best if they intend to successfully defend their home soil. The only locals in the field to have scored feature race wins at Archerfield this season are Cody OConnell and Lachie Robertson, while Paul Robinson’s run of consistent results has seen him finish inside the top five at every round, including three times on the podium.

    With by far their biggest field of the season, over 20 Lightning Sprints will contest the 2020/2021 Leesnico Earthmoving Queensland Championship, with defending champ Jason Rae to face-off against several very strong contenders. Given their record of success on the big stage, Australian champion Anthony McTaggert and former national titleholder Kurt Wilson, both of whom reside south of the border and form part of a six-strong interstate contingent, loom as the men most likely to take on Rae, who currently leads the QLSRA Club Championship pointscore after 10 rounds. Category veteran Keith Blatch can always be relied upon to feature somewhere in the thick of the action, regardless of what is at stake, and he will be joined by Sean Iacono, Wayne Iacono and Scott Genrich in representing Toowoomba in the title showdown. However, Tyler Stralow has been the standout local so far this season with two feature race wins at Archerfield, with Blatch, Darren Baldwin and Michael Gollagher having also been victorious.

    Round two of the Formula 500 Tri-Series will provide a rare opportunity for Brisbane fans to see some of those who compete frequently elsewhere in the state but rarely venture south to test themselves against a local posse that includes four-time national champ Liam Williams and his arch rival in James Kennedy, who prevailed in their most recent clash at the previous meeting when he won the only heat race that was decided before rain intervened. However, Kennedy is yet to break through for a feature win at Archerfield this season, something Williams has achieved on four occasions. A couple of young guns in Ryan Newton and Brodie Davis have delivered some very strong performances in recent outings, while joining Davis in representing the north of the state will be Brodie Boss, Josh Pokarier and Ryan Potts. New South Wales champion Lachlan Caunt has also expressed his intent to take part, no doubt relishing the tougher competition that the Queensland series will offer.

    Gates open at 1.00pm for competitors and online ticket holders only, with general admission ticket sales and entry from 3.30pm. Early racing will hit the track from 5.00pm and the main program will get underway from 6.00pm. There is no reserved seating for this event, however all patrons must maintain 1.5m social distancing. Face masks must be worn whenever social distancing is not possible (such as queuing for entry, at food/beverage outlets or when sitting within 1.5 metres of other patrons). With a large crowd expected, it is strongly recommended that all attendees have a face mask to ensure compliance with COVID protocols whenever 1.5 metre social distancing is not possible.
