West Coast Adult Ministocks

i have finally found time to do get around to congratulate the West Coast Adult Ministock winners. Thank you for all the out of town support especially those that participated at Baypark then to drive straight to Oceanview (even though some were later than what Goon liked) After splitting the field into two groups and having two heats per group to get our top 26, we had a run off between 3 cars....1 local 255v and 23p and 98s. 98s Anton Scherrer took the win and the final 26th spot going into the final race. 
As per usual in the non-contact class of ministocks there was the odd push and shove and bumper push (69s & 39p).
Checkered flag was given to 82s Hamish Booker, 2nd 37s Shane Denham and 3rd 88s Conrad Hall - well done guys and thanks to all the Adult Ministock drivers, for coming along and to Sam Doyle for helping rep them

 

 
M.I.P

Congrats to all our Youth Ministocks that raced at the M.I.P a few weeks back.   15v Callum (Traction) Sturzaker taking 2nd in the juniors out of about 33 odd competitors.    (photo courtesy of PS3 Photography)

 First night ICallum got a 1st from grid 9, next race he had grid 9 again and won another. Then had the last race starting from 24th and knew he had a bit of work to do ended up getting 10th.

Second night Callum had a 5th from 16th then a dnf from 24th, smashed the end of the bumper around.  Last race he needed to get a 1st, 2nd or 3rd to get on the podium which Callum ended up getting 2nd from 2.

Callum would like to say big thanks to everyone for getting his car out for last race! Thanks mike, mum and Mooney (Kaelin) and sponsors.

Warriors

Here's the moment when the 2015 Enzed Superstock Teams Champs was won and lost.

Graham Hughes from Sportsweb has captured another stunning action shot (and action replay of Podjursky/Smith in 2008). Dion Mooney got a great shot in on 2NZ Peter Bengston, and took him high up the turn 3 wall.

But look closely at the front of the 56V tank; Dion's at a bit of a disadvantage, with no left front wheel, and the car sitting lower as a result. To even have nobbled the man who is arguably the best teams racer in the country when your car is semi-disabled is an achievement in itself. Sadly for us, Bengston managed to get down, and although heavily battle scarred, he'd built enough of a cushion to go on and win the race.

There will be some sore bodies this morning after two night of hard racing. We wish every driver a speedy recovery, especially Bryce Steiner, Lance Ashton and Simon Joblin, and we thank them all for a massive weekend on entertainment.

 
Youth Ministocks

With the M.I.P being held over the same weekend of our next meeting 14th Feb, we would like to know if any youths not going would be keen to race at our track. 

This will be a normal meeting NOT the continuation of the W.C Youth ministocks.  If you are interested could you please let Daryl James know  before next Tuesday evening 027 243 9336

thank you for your support 

 
Racing Review 31.01.15

The Wanganui speedway faithful had been looking forward to this meeting for some time. The lead-up weather was great, and big fields were expected, especially for the sought-after Charlie Berntsen Trophy. Then along came Murphy and his Law!

A shower of rain a couple of hours before racing was due to start left the track very wet. The Golden Oldies did their best to wheel-pack before and during their first race, and actually left the racing surface in reasonable shape for the first Charlie heat.

27 Stockcars faced the starter, and 36V Chris Annabel hit the lead early. 88V Ian Barron made his way to the front when Annabel hit traffic problems, only to be passed by 6V Dion Mooney with a lap to go. Mooney held on to win, backing up from his third placing in the Manawatu Championships the previous weekend. Kyle Heibner took a comfortable win in the second heat from 992P Taylor Lampp and 181P Peter Gordon. Barron and Mooney finished fourth and sixth respectively.

An impressive 20 Superstocks rolled out for Heat One of the West Coast Superstocks, with visitors from Stratford, Palmerston North and Hawke’s Bay. Jack Miers had problems with the 88P ex-Ewers machine, and watched from the infield. Kerry Podjursky was first out of the southern bend, and with the 56V tank running beautifully took the win from 15V Kyle Heibner and William Humphries in the 98P car. Light drizzle began falling just as the cars gridded up for the second heat. Miers got a flying start, whilst Podjursky was spun exiting turn two. The track got more and more slippery as the race progressed, and Miers was never threatened, winning from 39S Michael Willemsen and Humphries.

The rain had turned the track into a skating rink, and it was no surprise when racing was adjourned to midday Sunday. However Murphy wasn’t finished, and steady rain on Sunday morning led to the meeting being abandoned.

Points from the first two heats will stand, and the final heats will be run as part of the next meeting at Oceanview, on Saturday 14th February. In the Charlie Berntsen Trophy, Ian Barron leads on 50 points, closely followed by Dion Mooney on 49, with a gap to Kyle Heibner and Kyle Lampp (772P) who sit third on 43 points. It is hoped all drivers can return on the 14th.

In the West Coast Superstocks there are four drivers within four points. William Humphries leads on 36 points, closely followed by Michael Willemsen on 34, Kerry Podjursky on 32 and 27B Shane Warner on 31.

The West Coast Youth Ministocks title was also weather-affected. 58S Bailey Betts and 247P David Marshall had a win apiece, and the Stratford driver leads his Palmerston North rival by one point with a final heat to be run on a date to be advised.

This could have been the meeting of the season to date, but the weather had the final say. Here’s hoping for a fine evening in two weeks when hostilities resume.

Vulcans

On a scorching hot Meeanee Saturday the Vulcan lads travelled to Meeanee for the Peter Barry Memorial Teams racing.

They decided to put up the Rees Sheild to whoever they faced in their first teams race.  They drew the waikato Raiders.  Race 7 rolls around the mighty V took to the track.   Race over the Vulcans took the win and retainded the Rees sheild and 165 points

Next race against the Orange Roughies which was a bit tougher however Francis was first past the line and took another win and more high points (125).  Looks like we will racing the Wellington Young Guns in the final.  One of their danger drivers Hilton Parker being an ex Vulcan was going to be a force to be reackon with but Francis took care of that on turn 2.  Another exciting race with cars up the wall and hard hits but best of all was the result.....Peter Barry Memorial teams WINNERS - VULCANS
