  • This weekend’s Australian 360ci Sprintcar Championship at the Perth Motorplex has a number of high profile drivers and teams contesting the event but the bulk of the 39-car field is made up of local weekly budget racers that will all be out to cause an upset in the biggest 360ci race of the season.
  • Forget eggs and bunnies and hot cross buns, Easter in Queensland (and northern New South Wales) is all about Sprintcar racing and, as such, the tradition will continue in 2018 with the annual Easter Triple Challenge to deliver three consecutive nights of V8 action across three different venues. This veritable feast of Easter Sprintcar goodness will kick off at Toowoomba’s Hi-Tec Oils Raceway on Good Friday (March 30), with round two to be decided at Audeck Patios Archerfield Speedway on Saturday, March 31. The series finale on Sunday evening (April 1) will once again be contested across the border in New South Wales in what will be the only Sprintcar event of the season at Castrol Edge Lismore Speedway.
  • A new 360ci Australian Sprintcar Champion will be crowned this weekend at the Perth Motorplex with defending National Champion Jamie Veal electing not to defend the title he won at the same venue last season and the question is will the recent 410ci driver domination continue? When you look at the most recent winners of the National Championship the last regular “weekly” 360ci competitor to wear the #1 is 2014 Champion Chad Ely, although at the time he too raced 410ci races when his schedule allowed.
  • History was created by Rusty Hickman at Warrnambool’s Premier Speedway last Sunday night, when he became the youngest winner of the Eureka Garages & Sheds Sprintcar Series after wrapping up the point standings battle in the 13th and final round.

  • Corey McCullagh continued his great form last night at Premier Speedway taking another Eureka Garages & Sheds A Main event win for the second time in a week while Rusty Hickman sealed the deal to become the 2017-2018 Eureka Garages & Sheds Sprintcar Series Champion.

In doing so Solomon became the first driver to win the Championship two times. An exciting way to finish an exciting season.

  • With only two rounds remaining in the 2017/18 Ultimate Sprintcar Championship SA (USC SA) laps are running out to catch current series leader Robbie Farr as he enters Round 6 of the Championship, that incorporates the prestigious Ross Wright Memorial, this Saturday night (March 10).

  • Following his emphatic performance last weekend, Andrew Scheuerle will be looking for a repeat performance this Saturday night (March 10) in round twelve of the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship at Ausdeck Patios Archerfield Speedway. However, with defending champ Luke Oldfield back in action after missing the previous round and Gold Coast youngster Lachlan McHugh making his return from a stellar debut season of World Series competition, Scheuerle will need to draw on his vast wealth of experience if he is to achieve back-to-back feature race successes. In addition to the Sprintcar action, Midgets will contest round seven of their Polar Ice Track Championship, with Development Sprintcars, Compact Speedcars, Lightning Sprints and Formula 500s completing an all open wheel program.

  • Paul Solomon created history last night at Maxi Moves Timmis Speedway, Mildura when he won an enthralling final A-Main of the series and in doing so become the first 2 time All Stars Series Champ. Heading into the meeting Solomon was a slender 20 points behind eventual runner up Mark Caruso. That margin was widdled away to just 15 points after the qualifying heats and set up what was to be an exciting 30 lap stanza.
  • Last night twenty-seven open Sprintcars, plus eight contenders in the Development Series, headed to Ausdeck Patios and Roofing Archerfield Speedway for another round of the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar series. With series leader Luke Oldfield unable to attend the event, rescheduled to last night after last weekend was abandoned due to rain, the rest of the field were keen to try and close the points margin, with each driver determined to secure as many points as possible to maximise the opportunity to change the course of the Championship chase. With double points on the line, determined by a random pill draw at drivers briefing, it became even more important for the championship contenders to bag as many points as they could. Andrew Scheuerle capitalised on the double points on offer, making it look easy as he led every lap of the main event to secure the win. Mitchell Gee ran a very solid second for most of the race, edging closer to Scheuerle in lapped traffic while defending his position from Jayden Peacock. Peacock was phenomenal, relentlessly chasing after Gee and biding his time before finally pulling off a bold but perfectly timed charge on the final lap. Peacock dove underneath Gee in the final corner, stealing second and leaving Gee to settle for third. Brent Kratzmann ran a comfortable fourth for most of the race, but a last corner charge from Allan Woods almost spelt disaster for the pair as they crossed the line. Kratzmann secured fourth with Woods officially home in fifth, just 0.012 seconds between them.
