Aussie champion on track to please

IT WILL be music to their ears.

The sound of V8 Super Sedans is sure to be a big hit for fans at Maryborough Speedway in Tinana tonight.

Round three of the Queensland Super Sedan Championship Series will thunder in life with 43 of the 700-horsepower sedans from throughout Queensland and New South Wales in the hunt to win the points on offer.

Leading the charge to the chequered flag will be the curent Australian champion, Brisbane’s Darren Kane.

But you can be sure that Kane won’t have it all his own way.

Current Queensland, New South Wales and Victorian champion Wayne Brims, lap record holder Mat Pascoe and the rest of the Queensland super stars Chris Jensen, Matt Williams, Paul Geary, Craig Torr, Des Korn, Bevan Collins, Michael Hally, Chris Bussey and last start winner Steve Pearce, will have something to say about that.

Kane, who said Maryborough was one of his favourite tracks, said there was going to be no easy ride for any driver tonight.

“It’s going to be a tough deal with 42 other drivers all wanting to bank maximum points,” he said.

“It’s just like an Australian championship field with this amount of cars and the quality of drivers.”

Maryborough Sporting Car Club president and race commentor, Ryan Harris, agreed with Kane.

“Without doubt one the biggest and best fields of Super Sedans we’ve ever had here,” Harris said.

“It’s a huge night for Maryborough Speedway and if this action doesn’t turn you on, you mustn’t have a switch.

“The Super Sedans will rip, tear and bust their way to glory and the mighty Midgets will battle it out wheel- to- wheel – when they get it wrong it gets spectacular.”

It won’t be only Super Sedans that will be turning it on.

Twenty-four Midget Speedcars will contest the Queensland title while Street Sedans, Junior Sedans and Junior Street Sedans are also on the menu for fans with the need for speed.

The green light for a big night of entertainment is at 4pm.
