Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Sport - Ai­dan Skraha

THE South­ern For­est Ma­chin­ery Race­way is back in ac­tion on Satur­day for the sec­ond last meet­ing of the 2017-2018 sea­son.

The SSRC Su­per Sedan Sum­mer Se­ries will thunder into town once again, with a star-stud­ded field of more than 15 cars.

Lead­ing the charge will be Gary Higgs, who has been in win­ning form the whole sea­son.

Higgs has ei­ther fin­ished first or sec­ond in the fea­ture events this sea­son, so he will look to con­tinue that strong form.

Mount Barker’s Chris Pavlovich has claimed wins this sea­son and is a reg­u­lar vis­i­tor to the Man­jimup track, so he will be look­ing to stop Higgs’ win­ning run and claim a round win in Man­jimup.

The field also in­cludes the Aylett duo of Kem­ble and Lee, vet­eran Bert Vos­ber­gen and Da­mon Trouchet.

This week­end the AMCA’s will re­turn once again and Matt L’Hul­lier will look for back-to-back vic­to­ries af­ter win­ning the fea­ture event here on Fe­bru­ary 27.

The sedans will be back, with a great fields of ju­niors, street stocks and pro­duc­tion sedans.

Pro­duc­tions this week­end will be run­ning their fea­ture for the year, so a qual­ity field is ex­pected.

Early nom­i­na­tions for pro­duc­tion sedans in­clude for­mer State Cham­pion Drew Ogle in the field, along with mul­ti­ple fea­ture win­ner Kyle Sayer, who is com­ing off a big win in Al­bany at week­end.

Street stocks see Shane Whild en­tered, who won the event with team­mate Alex Wil­liams in Fe­bru­ary, along with the home­town he­roes in David Fall, Jack Favero and more.

Ju­nior sedans also have great field, in­clud­ing an­other new driver to the sport in Sean Kir­wan.
