16/12/10…SSA Media Release
One of the most anticipated events of the 2010/2011 Ian Boettcher Proton Championship Series schedule will be contested this Saturday night (December 18) with the long awaited return of Super Sedan competition to Kingaroy Speedway. Competitors from near and far have nominated for the event at the revamped showground circuit. Proudly sponsored by Ken Mills Toyota, the race meeting will also feature round three of the Send with Us Super Sedan Series.
In recent seasons, the Kingaroy venue has been in a state of flux that has had many speculating about the future of the showground circuit. However, some dedication and hard work from those within the South Burnett Speedway Club has brought about a complete transformation to the complex, with a new concrete fence and a re-shaping of the track amongst many improvements.
Over 25 drivers from Queensland and New South Wales have nominated for the double-header event and, given the changes to the layout of the circuit and the extended absence of Super Sedans from the venue – a special practice session has been scheduled for Friday night (December 17).
Having enjoyed a two-week hiatus after a hectic start to the season, competitors will be primed and ready for action with many looking to cast aside early season misfortunes and launch their bid for championship success. Of course, those near the top of the leaderboard will be equally determined to consolidate their position at what is the last SSA event of 2010.
After five completed rounds of competition, Darren Kane currently sits atop the series standings with an 81-point advantage over Rockhampton revelation Craig Torr, while Steve Jordan is just 24 points adrift in what is shaping as one of the closest championships ever.
Friday practice is from 6.30pm to 9.30pm, while Saturday night’s big event gets underway with hot laps from 5.30pm. Each driver will contest three rounds of heats to determine their starting position in the 30-lap Ken Mills Toyota-sponsored feature event.
