Big crowds for sedans
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.
