The Track Championships for both the Wingless Sprints and the Speedcars concluded last Saturday night in front of a packed house at Tyrepower Sydney Speedway and it was Anthony Brien in the Speedcars and Sean Dicker in the Wingless Sprints who celebrated great victories.
Ant Brien, who led the majority of the season in the Speedcars, briefly gave up his lead to the hard charging Matt Smith towards the end of the season. Unfortunately for Smith, he endured a massive bell ringer on April 21 when he hooked a rut and was sent skywards.
Brien was consistent all season long, only missing out on one A-Main. From all of the A-Main’s he did contest, he did not finish any lower than thirteenth. It was this consistency which has seen him claim the most hotly contested series in the country.
Second in the Track Championship was the very impressive Scott Hill. Turning heads this season, Hill was also a model of consistency for the entire season. Matt Smith fell back to third with Ian Black and Darren Jenkins rounding out the top five.
In total, fifty-four Speedcars contested one or more rounds. It certainly was another successful season for the Speedcars and season 2012/13 looks just as good, if not better.
Meanwhile, Sean Dicker has won the Wingless Sprints track title after a season long battle with Adam Wray.
It was a battle that went right down to the wire as Wray only finished forty-seven points behind Dicker. The points were that tight, the battle went down to the wire in the season final A-Main last Saturday night.
Third place in points was Daniel Flood. At the beginning of the season, Flood was the leader but after missing shows in January and February, he did finish 126 points shy of Dicker. It must be said however, Daniel Flood did a great job in keeping third place as the pointscore structure leans towards attending each show.
Rounding out the top five was Justin Watt and Jeff Thomas.
It was a blue ribbon season for the Wingless brigade as Tyrepower Sydney Speedway hosted the Australian Championship in February. In excess of 80 drivers attended and with great racing across the weekend, was a success for all.
A total of 124 drivers contested one or more of the fifteen rounds of the Track Championship and with almost 40 cars at every show it was a great season for the wild and Wingless division.
Tyrepower Sydney Speedway is planning another big season for the Wingless Sprints in season 2012/13 and we look forward to it all happening from October.
