Rangeview rules track
Rangeview Speedway drivers were once again standouts at this year’s New Zealand Circle Track Racing Association Championships.
For the second year in a row, the club took out the top three placings in the production saloons.
Rangeview president Marcus Bullen managed a hat- trick of wins to take first, with Dave Pilkington and Kayne Sutherland sec- ond and third respectively.
It was the third win in four years for Bullen.
‘‘It was a pretty massive achievement,’’ he said.
‘‘ Only four cars from Rangeview went so to come back with the three top spots is pretty good.’’
Last year, the club won the titles at their home track, so it was heartening to know they were still competitive on enemy turf, he said.
‘‘Kayne and I had never been to Whangarei, it was all new to us.
‘‘To go to another track and win, when you have never raced there before, is pretty good.’’
There was a huge sense of pride within the Rangeview Club, said Bullen.
‘‘Thanks to the club and our families for the support, and all our sponsors – the local businesses that support us, we couldn’t do it without them.’’
Bullen wasn’t sure if they would be back to defend their titles next year.
‘‘Twelve months is a long time.’’
