Queensland’s Matt Hefford (formerly Tasmanian) & Victoria’s Nick Parker have both Nominated for the Easter Cup Challenge and are currently making the trip south hoping to show the local Tasmanian speedcar drivers how its done! Nick Parker is only in his rookie season as a speedcar driver but has already had a win to his name in Portland, Victoria, and in only his 4th race meeting! He is not new to racing how ever with 7 states titles in karts (including 3 in tassie) and numerous podiums in other paved racing divisions! Driving PMT Racing’s V39 Aggressor/Fontana Nick has no doubt got the speed to mix it with any Speedcar around!Matt Hefford is no stranger to Tasmania! Having Grown up watching racing at Carrick Speedway with his father Matt jumped at the chance to come and race in tassie. Matt is one of only a handful of people to have driven a speedcar around Carrick when he test drove Trent Blakes BHR Razor/Ed Pink Ford in a private test session Mid November. From that first test ,Matt said we would come back to race Tasmanian’s first Speedcar race meeting, so after a big Queensland domestic season where he won only a few weeks ago, he has packed up his speedcar and shipped it down to “Tassie” hoping to park his DC Motorsport Spike/Gaerte into Victory Lane Again!!
Two Interstate Midgets will be making the trip to Carrick Speedway this Easter Long weekend chasing the Inaugural Easter Cup Challenge Event!
