23/03/13…Pam Franz

Tonight (Saturday 23rd March) the 2013 Production Sedan Title was decided at Gympie’s Mothar Mountain Speedway with Tim Atkin showing his superior driving style to lap all but the first five placegetters in the 40 lap final.  Atkin qualified in pole position and never looked like being beaten through the race.

Final placings are – Tim Atkin, Gary Pagel, Luke Edwards, Wayne Slade, Jim Cowley, Frank Packer, Steve Thomsen, Brad Yarrow, Allen Nottage, Wade Flikweert, Darren Lyon, Jarrod Peacock, Josh Arthur, Kristian Walker, Adrian Stott, Taran Knowles, Kyle Greaves, Nathan Allison, Kent Shelford, Neil Keldoulis

In a great display sportsmanship, local Club Secretary – Selina English – gave her car to Kristian Walker to compete in the A Main – all be it from the ROF as was his right as the Title defender.  After getting up to 14th Kristian was forced infield with mechanical problems.  Earlier in the night Walker had fried the electrical system in his own car and thought his night was over until the offer to drive the G25 machine.
