State solos riders inch closer to the Qld title
THE QUEENSLAND Solos Title will kick-start a huge weekend at Maryborough Speedway in two weeks.
Some of the favourites, including local rider Joel Coyne, got to experience the feel for the track when the JTR Teams Challenge was held in September.
Most were set for a final hit-out as a support to the Queensland Sidecar Title last week, until late rain spoiled what would have been a seriously fast night of racing.
Now, riders have two weeks to tweak their bikes ahead of the state title, which will be held on December 9. It shapes as the first of two big days at Maryborough Speedway.
The sidecars will return to act as a support for the bikes, raising the stakes on what would have been a regular race.
Speedway president Wayne Moller said hosting rights for both the solos and sidecars state titles, in a year the Maryborough Sporting Car Club celebrates 60 years, was huge.
"It's pretty big for us, we haven't had the main solos title for 500ccs for some time,” he said.
"They missed out on the run with the rain last weekend so we've rescheduled that. A lot of the sidecar boys might be here on the ninth to have a hit-out ahead of the solos.”
Sunday, December 10, shapes as another opportune time for the state's karting specialists to get valuable track time.
It will be the last karts meet at the Maryborough ahead of the SKAA Karts National Title, which is scheduled for January 27.
