The WA Sporting Car Club’s 2020 season comes to a spectacular finale at Wanneroo Raceway this Saturday with the Nightmasters wrapping up the last of the category championships, with others already decided last month.
On-track action starts at 1pm with Formula Ford, F1000, Radicals, Formula Racing, Holden HQ, Excel Cup, Sports Sedans/Sports Cars and Street Cars all competing for round wins, and to finalise their championships.
The chase for titles features some close battles, including for second and third place in the Hyundai Excel series. Cameron Atkins currently sits third and has a new car ready to go after an incident at the October meet saw his ride retired.
In the HQ Holdens, Michael Howlett goes into the finals with a handy 26-point lead over Rory Sharp, and anything could happen there. Behind them is a close battle for third, with Mick Woodbridge leading Dennis Russell by 17 points.
The exciting F1000 category takes to the track earlier in the event with privateer Stewart Burns leading Arise Racing’s Adam Lisle by just two points. Behind them Joseph Bergic and Jordan Oon are also separated by two points, vying for third.
Over in the Saloon Cars Pro-AM class, the field has a huge task to catch leader Marc Watkins or even Michael Holdcroft in second.
Meanwhile 16-year-old Chase Hoy has a major battle defending third place from Carl Fanderlinden, just nine points behind.
Up in the Saloon Cars Pro class, Grant Johnson has a comfortable lead while Brock Boley and Matt Martin will scrap for second, with Rick Gill nipping at Brock’s heels for third.
WA Sporting Car Club’s events committee chair Peter Dyball predicts some great racing on Saturday.
“It’s the last WASCC race event for 2020, as well as the thrill of night racing, and we’re going to have State and Club championships decided.
“It should be epic!”Peter Dyball
“This has certainly been a challenging year for motorsport in Australia and in WA. The WASCC thanks all our competitors for their understanding and flexibility, and to our officials for their fantastic efforts.
“While 2021 is likely to throw plenty of curve balls at us, the WASCC team and Committee will be doing our best to conduct great events and get as many people as possible participating in motorsport at Wanneroo Raceway.”
