Pilbara News - - Sport - Tom Zaun­mayr

West Aus­tralian wing­less cham­pion Tom Payet has over­come his Aus­tralian num­ber one rival Daniel Har­ti­gan to claim the Nickol Bay Speed­way’s wing­less event ti­tle.

Payet pipped Har­ti­gan for first place in the A main fea­ture, with Man­durah’s Justin Wragg com­ing in third.

Among a field of 12 driv­ers, half of which had trav­elled from out­side of the Pil­bara, Payet was dom­i­nant all night.

He came in ahead of Har­ti­gan in both heats and kept his time un­der 2min.25sec in all but his last heat.

In the sup­port classes Brett Mills won the mod­i­fieds, com­ing in four sec­onds ahead of Bernie Matkovich. Nickol Bay Speed­way pres­i­dent John Magerl was a fur­ther one lap off the pace to claim third.

Matt Her­bert con­tin­ued his unas­sail­able dom­i­nance in the street stocks, though sec­ond placed Dale Roberts gave him a run for his money, but ul­ti­mately fin­ished three sec­onds be­hind Her­bert’s time of 2.48sec.

In the ju­niors it con­tin­ued to be any­one’s game, with Jared Coutts com­ing out on top of Matthew Magerl and Shakira Moss.

Nickol Bay Speed­way’s next club meet is on Oc­to­ber 8.
