Champion English defends title

MOTHAR Mountain Speedway roars back into action tonight with the second running of the Coolum Beach City of Gympie Street Stock Title.

The Gympie Saloon Car Club is more than happy with the continued support from Coolum Beach Getaway Resort for the running of this event.

With the Queensland State Street Stock Title set down for Mothar Mountain Speedway on January 7, 2017, tonight will serve not only as a title event, but also as another opportunity to ready competitors and their machines for the upcoming title.

Current Queensland Street Stock Champion Gympie's Steven English is keen to successfully defend this title and continue his impressive list of wins on his home track as he readies himself for his title defence.

His main opposition will come from Travis Hutchison, whom he battled with for the entire distance of last season's title.

Others to watch closely tonight will be Nathan Barbeler, Peter Thompson, Brad Mendes, Ben Langton and Nigel O'Neill.

With such a class field nominated, it will be a hectic and thoroughly enjoyable event on the mountain.

To support the title an impressive field of Modified Sedans has nominated to compete tonight.

Gympie's Glenn Pagel is out to make it consecutive feature race wins.

He will have plenty trying to upstage him, headed by Australian Champion Brett Baxter as well as Michael Learoyd, Troy Sismey, Craig Franz and Brad Jennings.

Pagel won the Modified Sedan Feature in September.

A massive nominations list of Production Sedans means that there will be plenty of thrills, spills and excitement from this action-packed class during the event.
