Huge Field to Kick Off 2014/15 Season!

RACIN LOGOOver the past few years the Late Models Sedans division in Western Australia has been growing and growing. Never has this been more evident than right now as we have one of the biggest fields ever assembled in WA for the opening event of the 2014/15 season, the Ray Tulk Memorial!


Ellenbrook Speedway this Saturday will play host to the thunder and lightning Late Models and with twenty seven nominations so far and the possibility of one or two more, there are sure to be sparks flying out on the track!


Headlining the nominations this weekend would have to be the man who dominated proceedings last season, Craig Vosbergen. Craig dominated here last season and spent some time in the off season continuing to hone his race craft and will be looking for another strong showing this season.


Of course there are a whole host of other drivers who will be out to ensure he doesn’t have it all his own way, namely Brad Blake, Jamie Oldfield, Marc Giancola and Warren Oldfield. Blake claimed another Australian Championship last season and is never far off the pace, while Jamie Oldfield also spent some time in the off season racing in America. He and brother Warren will again be teaming up, driving some brand new cars and ready for a full on assault. Of course, the will be joined by the third in a trio this weekend, by brother Jason, who is also a gasser and all here are a real threat, especially considering that Ellenbrook is their home track. Add in state champion Marc Giancola and it could be any one of these drivers who take home the win.


That being said, there is a whole host of other drivers looking for opening round glory, with drivers the ilk of Jay Cardy, Matt Goodlad, Lee Watt, Michael Holmes and former Australian Champions Ryan Halliday and Brad Ludlow all showing on previous occasions that they are more than capable of being at the pointy end of the field.


It is great to see that we even have a couple of returning drivers, with Veronica McCann Pickersgill and Mark Duncombe both strapping themselves back in after a few seasons off. Both are talented drivers in their own right and it shouldn’t take them long at all to be right back on the pace.


Encouragingly, there are also a number of young drivers for this weekend, including the Melvin brother, Morgan and Alec. The duo showed some solid talent towards the end of last season and this time around, with their magnificently presented machines, they are ready to continue on the steep learning curve that is Late Model Sedan racing. Also in that learning phase this weekend is Jayden Meckenstock, a Junior Sedan driver who will be stepping into the division for the first time this weekend.


There are just quite simply too many drivers to mention, and if you add into those mentioned above another ten drivers it is sure to be a real lung buster this weekend.


With this many quality cars, we are assured of some huge action packed entertainment, so quite simply, why would you be anywhere else?
