Tararua drivers show good form
Eketahuna’s Peter Bengston started the season off in fine form on opening night of speedway to finish third in the opening race, followed by a second in race 2.
But in race 3 starting at grid 31, he battled his way through the field to finish in third place, giving him a 10 point lead in the Quin Buildings Direct Labour Weekend Showdown. The following night at Meanee, Peter finished the night in third place to win the overall prize money.
In the stockcars, Dannevirke’s David Lowe returned driving his sold car to finish second in his first heat and winning his second race. Time ran out, meaning the feature race wasn’t run. Cam Renwick managed a fourth in his first heat to put early points on the season points chase while brother Scott finished fifth in race 2.
In the Adult Ministocks, Steven Sowry managed a fourth in his second race, even though his car is still in need of some setup changes.
In the Youth Ministocks, Dannevirke’s Max Lowe had a pearler in race 1, taking the win, and although not featuring in the top six of race 2, pulled off the fastest lap of the race. Jordan Adie finished sixth in race 2.
The sidecar class had 11 bikes split into two heats. Father and son combo of Stu and Scott Sowry won their second race to start their first season in the class second on the season points leader board.
SuperStocks will be back in action on Saturday night October 27 for the Lucas Oil SuperStock Shootout Series Round 1.
Father and son duo Stu and Scott Sowry won their second race on opening night.
