Rollovers provide entertainment

THREE spectacular rollovers provided plenty of carnage for Gympie speedway fans at Mothar Mountain at the weekend.

A bumper crowd again packed the stands Saturday night to absorb the speedway action, braving unseasonably cold weather.

Speedway photographer Sue Roza was on hand to witness all the excitement through the camera lens and said drivers did well to handle the difficult conditions on track.

“It was another great meeting on the mountain,” she said.

“Unfortunately, the track was very rutty from too much moisture from all the rain.”

Speedway officials scrambled to keep the track in order, grading it twice over the course of the night.

A program bursting at the seams ensured fans remained riveted, but it was the 20/20 double feature to steal the show.

Claiming Feature A was the team of Kent and Mick Shelford while Feature B went to Gympie’s Tim Atkin and Moz Woodrow.

Atkin, current Queensland number one, enjoyed the chance to drive in his old car after selling it to Woodow.

Outside of the main act, track records were broken after a number of blistering performances.

In Junior Sedans, Jayden Peacock set a new record of 20.724 to receive the chequered flag.

Peacock then backed up in Junior Street Sedans with another winning performance in another car earning him a new track record of 19.8783

Meanwhile, Aidan Raymont showed his class to take out the Modified Production over fellow Gympie drivers Gavin Lorensen and Todd Doyle, gaining the lead on the very last lap.
