YOUNG BROWNDOG SLAYS THE NEW TOOWOOMBA SURFACE

Sydney’s Kaidon Brown carved up the new surface at the Hi Tec Oils Toowoomba Speedway recently in his TFH King Hawk 97V knocking recent lap record holder Darren Vine off the boards with a 12.403!

Brock Dean opened the nights trips to victory lane in the Aliweld 8Q King Hawk after leading the 11-car field home in heat one followed by Darren Vine back in the turbo Esslinger MVT 19Q AS Brown rounded out the top three.

The Flying Fish Scotty Farmer was next to cross in the 22Q NLT Australia Spike Esslinger , Bradley Harrisons NuPave TRD 21Q Bullet was in fifth just ahead of the United Waste Services Eagle of Tim Farrell, Ricky Robinson in the BW Fabrication Breka Gaerte 56Q crossed in seventh as the eighth place getter Nathan Mathers in the 18Q Inksane Tattoo Artist Eagle Esslinger brought across the line the 36Q Spike Gaerte of Cal Whatmore JNR, Audie Malt in the 27Q Spike Gaerte and rounding out the field was Lachy Paulger in the 37Q Eagle Gaerte machine.

Kaidon Brown returned service in the second and final “all in” heat bagging the victory over Dean and Farrell.

Scotty Farmer banked another fourth place and was pursued by Robinson, Whatmore JNR, Vine, Mathers, Paulger as Harrison was the only recorded DNF.
Unfortunately, we had lost the 27Q Malt car due to a suspected oil pressure concern.

With just one point splitting the duo of Brown and Dean it was Kaidon to lead the field to the flag showing the dominant hand in the all King Hawk front row
Farmer and Vine filled the second row from P3 and 4, Farrell and Robinson were also having a great night banking enough points to occupy row three, Harrison and Mathers filled P7 and 8 just in front of the Gaerte Gang of Whatmore JNR and Paulger who rounded out the ten-car field.

At the drop of the green Brown put the hammer down and checked out as the rest of the field jostled into racing lines the laps counted down it appeared the remaining 9 starters had nothing to offer the flying youngster as he went on to take victory and park his TFH/Indy Race Parts 97V in victory lane.

Brock Dean came home in second ahead of third place Scotty Farmer, Brad Harrison notched up another “Lucky 4th” Place Revolution Race Gear Sunshine Coast voucher for his efforts, Tim Farrell crossed in 5th, Whatmore Jnr was the “Mover and Shaker” from P9 up to 6th at the flag ahead of Vine, Mathers, Robinson and Paulger rounded out the feature field.

Huge thanks to Todd Wanless and his RAW Metal Corp for backing the Two Track Challenge it was unfortunate that mother nature claimed the win on the first night however very promising signs for this Easter series to continue are strong.

Thanks also to the cars who made the trek up the hill even after the weather wasn’t looking flash for night two and the officials volunteering their time for another history making event.

Our next show is back at Archerfield on May the 11th for the Nexgen/Glenn Wright Painting BNE 50 lapper but not before a large number of Queensland Cars head south to Valvoline Raceway Parramatta for the NSW State Title on the 27th then the double header night which is the NSW 50 Lapper on Friday the 3rd and Saturday the 4th.

Our final Polar Ice Midget Series round 11 will see out the season of action on the track and is again at Archerfield on May 25.

NO ONE WAS CATCHING THE FISH

Scotty “the fish” Farmer proved far too slippery for the rest of the field on Saturday night in round 9 of the polar ice series. It will go down as one of the best feature races this season, there was some great battles playing out across the whole field, racing was fast and the track had a fast top if you dared and a hooked up low line too.

In time trials it was Callum Walker driving the Ian Boettcher race parts Q35 who took out the Nupave/Nexgen quick time with a 14.024 edging out Scotty “the fastest fish on land” Farmer by .034 of a second.. (That’s a margin more accurately know as a bees… uh wing..) With less than half a second separating the top 6 it was definitely building towards a great night of racing.

In heat 1 it was Darren Vine that got the win in the Q6r, Rusty “the gas man” Whittaker in the Q89 in 2nd and grabbing 3rd was young gun Bodie Smith in the SBR Q77. Special mention must go to the Q81 with B’rad Dawson who drove one of his best heat races of the season, Dawson finished 4th but managed to lay down the fastest lap of the heat, keep it up B’rad and remember keep your hands inside your ride at all times.

Heat 2 saw the Q8 of Brock “the king” Dean cross the line in 1st, followed closely tho by Scotty “Fisher” in the Q22, Tim Farrell came home 3rd. A quick shout out to Tommy Clauss who showed great pace early, unfortunately did get the result he was looking for but has improved every time he straps into the Q45.

Heat 3 was another heat win for Vine, 2nd was the fastest Fish on land Scotty Farmer, and 3rd was the Q77 of Smith.

Although Vine got the win it was Farmer who was once again setting fastest lap in the heat by almost half a second.

Heat 4 it was Tom Clauss who got the chocolates (it’s just phrase Tom so don’t ask me for chocolates next time you see me), Bradley Harrison grabbed 2nd place and Callum Walker in the Q35 was home 3rd.

Unfortunately mid-way through this heat the red lights were on after Whittaker Dean and Whatmore Jr were fighting for the same bit of dirt, it was like three seagulls and 1 chip, all three DNF the heat due to slight damage.

15 cars started the feature and it was the Q22 of Scotty “the fish” Farmer getting the win, with a clinical display of driving and showing how all the experience he gained from racing in NZ earlier this season is invaluable as Callum Walker drove an incredible race finishing in 2nd place.

Walker was sticking the Q35 right along the fence on the high line the whole race and looked at ease in the car. It was great to see Callum back in a midget and more importantly fit and well again.

After taking the early race lead Darren Vine finished in 3rd place. Vine persisted on the low line and done a great job to hold of strong challenges from Dean on the high line and Whittaker on the bottom.

Dean finished 4th just edging out a fast finishing Whittaker home in 5th place.
