Bur­son makes it four

Central Otago Mirror - - WANAKA FEATURES -

Su­per sa­loon driver Ian Bur­son be­came the sec­ond mem­ber of the ‘four on the trot’ club when he clinched the South Is­land Su­per Sa­loon Cham­pi­onship for the fourth con­sec­u­tive sea­son at Cen­tral Mo­tor Speed­way on Fri­day night. Just two weeks ago Queen­stown’s Ja­son Scott cre­ated a New Zealand speed­way record when he won the South Is­land Sprint­car Cham­pi­onship – be­com­ing the first driver to win a ti­tle four years on the trot. Go­ing into Satur­day’s Elf Su­per Cup Su­per Sa­loon Se­ries 34-year-old Bur­son had a com­mand­ing lead. Al­though he did not achiev­ing a podium fin­ish, he should still be in front of Christchurch’s Richie Tay­lor who crossed in sec­ond place be­hind Cen­tral Mo­tor Speed­way driver, Mike Ver­doner. Af­ter very lit­tle rac­ing this sea­son Ver­doner stormed home third in the South Is­land Su­per Sa­loons Cham­pi­onship fea­ture race and won the Elf Su­per Cup fea­ture race on Satur­day night. The ac­tion will be back at Cen­tral Mo­tor Speed­way for the Su­per Sa­loon Stam­pede on March 22.

Join the club: Fourpeat South Is­land Su­per Sa­loons cham­pion Ian Bur­son takes the lead at Cromwell on Satur­day night in a heat for the Elf Su­per Cup fea­ture race.
