Frost ‘ice-cold’ at Borderline

Tasmanian teenager Tate Frost has claimed the chocolates in the 2024 Easter Sprintcar Trail and the $10,000 grand prize after three days of intense racing over the Easter long weekend.

On night two at Borderline, Frost crossed the line first ahead of Jock Goodyer and Friday night’s winner Daniel Pestka from Port MacDonnell team SP Racing.

The event started at the Avalon Speedway in Geelong on Good Friday, followed by the Borderline Speedway on Saturday and concluded at the Sungold Stadium Premier Speedway in Warrnambool on Easter Sunday, where Tate Frost completed the trail followed by the Q5 of Brock Hallett with Pestka again rounding out the podium and securing second place for the overall Easter Trail.

Borderline Speedway president Cary Jennings said the crowds at all three venues were exceptional.

“Each track had fireworks and we all finished reasonably early which gave everyone a chance to celebrate in a different way,” he said.

“We finished our program by 9.30pm on Saturday night in front of an excellent crowd and then people could go into the pits and mingle with the competitors.

“The weekend was excellent, all tracks were fast and we had lap times broken during our three classes of Super Rods, Wingless Sprints and Sprintcars.

“They were breaking lap times each time they went out, so a credit to the track maintenance crew to make the tracks the way they are, near the end of the season they all wanted to make a good track and I think it was excellent racing.

“In the final, the three young winners were going at it and working their way through the cars they were lapping until lap 14 or 16 when a car spun and they had a yellow and then they got back in the rhythm again.”

The SA Limited Sportsmans Title will finish off the 2023/24 Borderline Speedway Season this Saturday night supported by Junior Sedans and Classic Sedans and Rods.
