Three feature races to close out Wahgunyah’s season

WAHGUNYAH Speedway fires up on Sunday for the last time this season when racers head to the venue for a program that includes three feature events.

The annual Production Sedan Talbot’s 1000, the Lachie Howie Memorial for standard saloons and the Victorian title for Goulburn Ovens sedans share top billing, along with a feature for junior sedans and support from open ladies sedans and Victorian sports sedans.

In production sedans, Steve Laidlaw, Trevor Mills, Rodney Anderson, Andrew Cunningham and Chris Lack are among the nominations that include defending event winner Frank Packer and fellow Queenslander Neil Keldoulis.

Laidlaw, a former national champion in the division, blitzed the field at the last meeting and if his car goes as strong as it did that night, it is hard to see him being beaten.

The standard saloon entry list includes the late Lachie Howie’s brother Warrick, who is the favourite given his form in recent months.

His biggest challenge will be Scott Whittle from Geelong who is a multiple state champion in the division contesting this event for the first time.

Goulburn Ovens sedans nominations from Leeton’s washed out attempt to run the title last Saturday night will be bolstered by a couple of nominations that were not going to Leeton.

Drivers to watch include Clint Henderson, Jason Mills, Tom Bowers, Chelsea Cornelius, Ross Maclean, Danny McCarten, Peter Schmetzer and Mitch Watts.

Racing starts at 1pm.
