The largest ever field of 4 Cylinder Sedans have entered for this Saturday nights Queensland Title, to be held at the 520m Lockyer Valley Speedway, Gatton Queensland.
Current Queensland Champion, Peter Stretton will make the the 3400 km round trip from Cairns, to defend his Qu,eensland Title and while in great form at his own track he has not raced at Lockyer Valley.
A record number of entries have been received from NSW, with Trent Dhu fresh from a win at Kingaroy two weeks being a real threat . Also from NSW is ex junior racer Aaron Knox who has placed third in his last two starts at Lockyer Valley.
Recent King of Australia winner, Tim Weir, also enters the title as one of the favourites and has been in great form this season winning his last feature at Gatton .
A strong challenge will also come from the Hervey Bays father and son team Paul and Hamish Redman .The two are highly experienced and come with a wealth of both circuit and speedway racing experience .
Kingaroys Ben Stead driving his rapid Honda Prelude will be looking for a win, but is under pressure to have his car ready after a heavy crash two weeks ago at Kingaroy .
Throw in the rest of the drivers who have entered from NSW through to Cairns this years title looks like being one of the hardest to pick on the super fast Lockyer Valley show ground oval.
Lockyer Valley Speedway is located on the Gatton Showgrounds. Pre-race program from 12 Midday – main race program from 4pm to 10pm. $20 per adult entry. A great nights racing will be witnessed by the attending fans. Come along and see the cars during the scrutineering from 9am to 11.30am.
