In what was a sensational night of racing at Ausdeck Patios Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night (November 22), Darren Vine (Midgets) and Kevin Britten (Dirt Modifieds) emerged victorious in a pair of thrilling feature races on a track that provided both challenges and opportunities in equal measure. In the Polar Ice Midget Series feature race, Darren Vine withstood a gung-ho charge from Brock Dean that fell short by the barest of margins as the pair raced under the chequer. Michael Harders continued his run of podium results to finish third ahead of Scott Wilson and Troy Ware.
This weekend the Speedcars and the Formula 500’s will feature in a huge two night extravaganza as the Tolmer Speedway in Bordertown and the Murray Machining and Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway team up to host the Carline Speedcar Pro Series and two of the most prestigious Formula 500 races South Australia has to offer.
Just two weeks after a fantastic feature race that is still no doubt resonating in the memories of those who witnessed it, the mighty Midgets return to Ausdeck Patios Archerfield Speedway this weekend for another exhibition of open wheel excitement. Round three of the Polar Ice Midget Series will be decided on Saturday night (November 22), with 18 drivers nominated for the event.
A quality field of Midgets rarely lets you down and Saturday night (November 8) at Ausdeck Patios Archerfield Speedway was proof positive with round two of the Midget Super Series producing some splendid racing. It was Australian champion Adam Clarke who prevailed in the 30-lap feature event, swapping the lead in the early laps with Aiden Corish and Nathan Smee before surging clear as his challengers fell by the wayside. Further back there was incredible action as Brendan Palmer surged forward to finish in second spot ahead of Troy Jenkins, with Michael Harders also advancing through the field to improve from 12th to fourth at the chequer. Meanwhile, Smee somehow climbed back into the top five following a spin on lap 9, while young Corish - who was sensational throughout the night and showed little regard for the reputations of those around him - faded to finish sixth but left plenty of good judges very impressed. Troy Ware and Anthony Chaffey were next best ahead of Matt Hefford and Mitch Brien.
