It’s race weekend and it looks like the weather gods aren’t going be that nice to us this weekend with rain predicted and being Phillip Island it will be very fresh down there!
With the weather that we are going to have it will be sure to mix the results up. In saying that though I think the same usual suspects will be at the front.
Ash Wright will be looking for back to back pole positions, with the difference this time him getting away cleanly and not making a mistake while leading the field this time.
Kaide Lehmann has shown he is quick in the wet before and will certainly be pushing, his team mate Daniel Cooper will be right there as well in his new car.
Championship leader Adam Bywater will be in the mix right at the front and he will be looking to cement his spot at the top, his team mate Tim Yates is never far from the action and will be there helping his team owner to extend his points lead.
Team Blight with both Nev and Nathan are never far from the front and Nathan will be out to continue his great form he had before blowing a gearbox up in the last round.
The battle for Team Cave Hill will certainly be interesting to watch this weekend to see who comes out on top, Dylan Innes has a brand new engine and is boasting about the amount of power he has now, so hopefully he comes out in front of his team mates Stuart Jones, Neil Haesler, Nick Higgins, Nick Scarcella and new team mate for this weekend making his debut Steven Tate.
Next in the inter team battles will be Team Arrow Line marking, they are back to three cars for this weekend with the return of Gavin Dunn after he has packed up his caravan and his grey nomad hat for the weekend, should be nice and close between Wayde, Gavin and Bryan.
Karl Neilson has a team mate for this weekend with Wayne Milburn Jnr joining us for the first time on the track. Will it be Karl who shows Wayne how it’s done or will Wayne’s speedway experience pay off in the wet conditions?
The next team battle will be between Brendan Avard debuting a new car this weekend, Peter Green Jnr and David Page, Peter comes into the series for the first time but has previously raced front wheel drive cars and loves the wet weather.
Gavin Stubbs has been in great form lately and will certainly be one to watch this weekend, he will bringing along another car this weekend for Scott Manson to run in, Scott also comes into the series for the first time and has plenty of front wheel drive experience after racing mini’s.
Bruce Phillips has been hard at work on his car in the lead up to this round and is sure to be a man on a mission this weekend.
Daniel Orr, Troy Musto and Jordan Ryle will all be hoping for a good run this weekend after not having much luck go their way so far this season.
Belinda East and Richard Dickie have both shown great speed of late but have had a few up and down weekends so they will be looking for a more consistent weekend this time around.
Stephen Kerwood and Jordan Greenslade will also join us for the first time this year and it will be interesting to see how they go this weekend.
The field is certainly growing all the time and getting even closer in their times, this weekend is sure be nice and close and produce some great racing.
If you’re not doing anything this weekend make sure you grab your coat and head down to Phillip Island for some great racing!
