Clouds clear for racing
MOTHAR Mountain speedway organisers were pulling their hair out Saturday when rain blanketed the region and refused to lift.
After forecasts hinting at only a few showers, few were expecting the prolonged deluge that eventually forced the cancellation of the first evening of the Anzac Day long weekend double header – coinciding with the Queensland Modified Production Title.
But a reprieve Sunday saw the rain ease and racing went ahead as organised, with the gates open early and the schedule tight.
Aidan Raymont flew the flag for Gympie with a stellar win to capture the Queensland Modified Production Title.
Not to be the only local to do well on his home track, Raymont was joined by a number of Gympie drivers in the support events to win.
Michele Blavius took out the Junior Street Sedans, Josh Harm the Street Sedans and Steve Cook the Super Street.
Gympie Saloon Car Club officials were pleased to get a result from the weekend’s racing in what was Gympie’s second biggest speedway meet of the season.
The speedway season continues this weekend for Queensland champion Raymont with a meet in Maryborough followed by a trip to Lismore the following weekend for the New South Wales State Titles.
