HARDERS WINS NEW YEARS SPEED

Rodney Harders won engine start and then quick timed in Toowoomba on New Year’s Eve however it was Michael Harders coming home with the goods in the main event in the very fast looking 14H Auto UpGrade Spike.

Debuting new war paint on the Speedsport Racer Michael had a 3rd and then a 2nd in the heats slotting into P3 for the feature start.

Mark George lead the field away for a majority of the first stint in the Breka 16X until he was run down by Michael Harders when lapped cars came into play Harders grabbed the bull by the horns and threaded the needle taking the lead and set sail to the chequered.

The nights Barnstorming drive came from Brad Young in the 48 starting from P7 in the grid and blasting home in 3rd after the 20 lap duration!

Young guns Scott Farmer and Charlie Brown had great runs in the heats and finished 6th and 7th respectively in the feature.

Diamond Doug Kay had a run in the Cal Whatmore 36Q Spike rolling out a 14.856 in the hot lap session then backed up in the heats with a 7th and a 5th keeping consistent in the final with an 8th place .

Kiwi Chris Gwilliam had a run in the Chris Singleton Motorsport Spike 26Q taking a heat win then blowing a tire in the 2nd heat starting the feature from P5 he retired early and parked the car with a suspect oil leak.

Birthday Boy Darren Vine recorded the nights 6th quickest time in the 6Q Spike with a 14.088 claiming a 2nd then a heat win he started the feature from P2 eventually crossing the chalk in 6th place.

As mentioned the night’s quick timer Rodney Harders had success in the heats with a pair of 3rds starting the big show from P4 finishing one spot back at the end in 5th.

Shayne McDowell continues to go from strength to strength in the 96Q with a 15.673 in hot laps with a 6th in heat one then a small mechanical fault saw him DNF the final heat of the night fixing that concern he ran 9th in the 20 lapper

Team Aggressors of Corey Stothard and Tony Stevens both clocked some good times early in the night with a 15.326 for Corey and a 16.735 for new comer Tony however both failed to run the distance in the feature.

Feature Event Michael Harders 1st , Mark George 2nd , Brad Young 3rd.
