Burson makes it four
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.
