Pros line up for speedway title

The Pro Sprints SA Title and Modified Sedan SA Title will entice competitors from across the nation to the Borderline Speedway this Saturday from 5pm onwards.

The Pro Sprints SA Title will be heavily contested by 26 competitors from South Australia and Victoria including Australian Sprint car number one Mark Caruso and local Scott Enderl who will be looking for home town glory.

Port MacDonnell’s Jamie Stark from SP Racing will be watching on with eager anticipation as his car is driven by Daniel Pestka.

Borderline Speedway president Cary Jennings said the Modified Sedan SA Title will see around 20 competitors with late model cars including Holden Commodores and Ford Falcons from every Australian state compete for the title.

“Last weekend they had a state title at Warrnambool and they have stayed around the area so that model of car is going to have two state titles in a matter of two weekends,” Mr Jennings said.

“In speedway that is what we are trying to achieve is to keep the cars in our local area.

“That will be an excellent race as well so people need to get out to Borderline and support and enjoy the weekend of sprint car racing and modified sedan racing.”

The Formula 500 SA State Series will be replaced with junior sedans which will see strong local competition between third generation drivers and cousins Violet Thorne, 14, and first timer Demi Jennings, 15.

“It is good to see the juniors and we try and support the junior groups in Mount Gambier and we are fortunate enough that we have a few locals and we try and give them track time,” Mr Jennings said.
