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.
