Big crowds for sedans

South Western Times - - Sport -

It was a bumper week­end at the Make Smok­ing His­tory Bun­bury Speed­way, with crowds flock­ing to the Speed­way Sedans Aus­tralia 50th an­niver­sary meet­ing on Satur­day.

Spec­ta­tors were spoilt for choice, with all five na­tional di­vi­sions and their re­spec­tive State cham­pi­ons com­pet­ing across the same night.

Adyme “The An­i­mal” Har­vey was vic­to­ri­ous in the 15-lap su­per sedans fea­ture, af­ter gain­ing as­cen­dacy dur­ing lap five fol­low­ing a mi­nor er­ror from leader Kevin Bell.

Fol­low­ing a yel­low flag pe­riod, Har­vey swept all be­fore him as he pow­ered away to a mem­o­rable vic­tory.

In the ju­nior sedan divi­sion, Blake Iwanow capped off a fault­less show­ing in Bun­bury to claim the fea­ture event eas­ily.

Three heat vic­to­ries en­sured Iwanow started on poll and near the mid­way point of the race had al­ready set the race’s fastest lap.

Sub­se­quent yel­low flag pe­ri­ods ei­ther side of his sear­ing pace only en­hanced his con­trol in the clos­ing stages.

Poll po­si­tion also proved telling for Matt Noakes, who got the bet­ter of State cham­pion An­thony King at the green light and re­mained un­touched dur­ing the mod­i­fied sedans fea­ture, though Adam Houston fought hard from the back end of the field to fin­ish in sixth.

Per­sis­tence paid off in the pro­duc­tion sedans fea­ture event for Kyle Sayer, who built on promis­ing heat per­for­mances.

Af­ter con­struct­ing sec­ond and third-place per­for­mances, Sayer started from fifth on the grid and grad­u­ally got the bet­ter of Jamie Old­field who started on pole and fell back to fourth.

But it wasn’t all bad news for Old­field, who claimed the street stock fea­ture ear­lier in the night from pole po­si­tion.

Speed­way pres­i­dent Barry Hunter said it was the meet­ing was a suc­cess, with sev­eral beau­ti­fully pre­sented cars on show.

“It was a great night,” he said.
