Track Records Tumble!
This season at the Perth Motorplex Track Records again tumbled, and it started right from the very get go!
The opening meeting of the season, held on the 23rd of October saw four of the five divisions racing on the night rewrite the record books.
This super quick night would see Daniel Harding reset the one lap (race) and eight lap records in Sprintcars, Daniel Golding rewriting the twenty lap Speedcar record, Kodee Brown setting the fastest one lap time for a Late Model and Brent Vosbergen grabbing the eight lap Late Model record and Glenn Carstairs resetting the eight lap Formula 500 record!
Throughout the season several other records dropped: some due to track conditions and some due to the fact it was the first time in a long time that particular division has raced over the specific distance!
Some of the highlights over the season include Tom Payet claiming the twenty five lap Speedcar record and then Lee Redmond resetting the eight lap heat race record on the final night, Daniel Harding breaking the six lap Sprintcar record, Brent Vosbergen the thirty lap record in Late Models, Todd Broadwood the six lap Formula 500 record, Daniel Keen the eight lap Wingless record and Cody Nash the six lap Wingless record.
The FAST Racing Series shows also saw plenty of new benchmarks set, including Jeremy Hale setting new one lap and eight lap 320 Sprintcar times, Bayleigh Beckingham the 15 lap 320 time, Ben Norman the six lap and Evan Wakefield the ten lap Street Stock times, Kyle Sayer the one and twenty lap records for Production Sedans, Kai Leeson the ten lap Junior Sedan record and Mikey Green claiming all the inaugural Junior Formula 500 records.
In total twenty-seven different records had their times lowered, some more than once, so in more ways than one, it was a record-breaking season!
