The big guns of the 2016 CAMS, PGS Industries WAORC are ready to put on a show at the Cochranes Transport Badgingarra 250. With 8 entries the Pro Buggy class is the biggest class in the event and its sure to be one of the most hotly contested too
19 – Troy Schoen fresh from a dream debut at Bencubbin and followed up by a top 10 finish at the 3rd round of the AORC is hoping that his good form will continue to the Badgy 250. The immaculately presented CCR Hoses & Fittings sponsored machine will be very tought to beat!
21 – Danielle Joyce is the only female driver in the field after Annie Hoskings withdrawal. Joyce will be working hard to ensure that the Al-co racing sees the finish line and will be trying to knock off a few of the boys while she is at it!
22 – Grant Payne could be the dark horse of the Cochranes Transport Badgingarra 250. His BAT Spec 0 has been getting quicker and quicker with each outing and with a clean run, Payne has every chance of becoming the 5th different winner in 5 rounds
28 – Shane Yaxley will be throwing everything but the kitchen sink at the Badgy 250 course. His aggressive driving style helps him get the most out of his little 4L V8 and with the new track looking to be power hungry expect to see the CBM Motorsport buggy at full tilt!
42 – Peter Barrett will be hoping that the bad luck which has plagued him all year is well and truly behind him. The Carnarvon Motel sponsored Bullet Pro Buggy has been quick, it just needs the reliability to match it if Barrett is to see the chequered flag with a strong finish
54 – Keith Rance is another who will be hoping to have left the bad luck behind. His Magnum Slingshot buggy has the pace to run at the front of the field. If Rance can keep it clean a top 3 finish is not out of the question
98 – Craig Wells is back in his V8 Pro Buggy after son Marcus had been in the drivers seat earlier in the year. Whilst Marcus was plagued by bad luck and a bit of unreliability it remains to be seen if father Craig can push his way to the front of the field
968 – Brad Cooper is a man on a mission. He has his destiny in his own hands, knowing that an outright win at the Badgy 250 will leave him in the driving seat for the outright points championship heading into Three Springs. Cooper isn’t a multiple times WAORC champion for no reason so be prepared for him to step it up another gear this weekend
