Now that the Formula 500’s WA Inc. have had three race meetings for the season, it is quite simply time for drivers to step up and fire as they continue their quest for feature race glory once again this weekend at the Perth Motorplex.
A good field of sixteen cars have nominated for the show, with Chris Dymock the man of the moment, winning not just the last feature at the Perth Motorplex, but also taking home the chocolates last weekend at Geraldton Speedway.
Dymock fought off good fields in both shows and is sure to be a threat once again this weekend, but he is sure to face a fight with names like Glenn Carstairs and Steven Ellement chasing him down. The duo finished second and third respectively behind Dymock in the opening Motorplex round, but are not willing to settle for anything less than a win and they will be pulling out all stops to achieve that this weekend.
Brendon Marshman has also been a man to watch, the only other person to finish on the podium twice so far this season along with Dymock, with some solid finishes at country shows and also coming home seventh in the opening Motorplex show. Marshman is hitting his straps at the right time and could quite potentially be one to watch this weekend.
Narrogin’s Luke and Jamie Nardini came home fourth and sixth respectively in their opening feature of the season and after being so strong all throughout last year, will be hoping to return to that form this Saturday night.
Jeff Ross, David Carstairs and Shane Dalton were solid top ten contenders at their opening show of the season and will be hoping to continue that form while James Dawson will be hoping to breakthrough into that group after finishing just shy in his previous meeting at the Motorplex.
Taj Reeve, Lizz Plummer and Cody Turacchio all make their seasons Motorplex debut this weekend along with Ashleigh Oldfield, Beau Rogers and Craig Bottrell, so with these six drivers hoping to find their feet quickly and be fast straight out of the box we are assured of action aplenty across the field.
Make sure you are at the Perth Motorplex this Saturday night for the annual King of Kwinana event!
