Super 1650 & Superlite Preview

Posted on

The Super 1650 class is set for its biggest field of competitors that we have seen in some time. 5 of these little pocket rockets are set to do battle and this is one class that it will be too hard to pick a winner!

#211 – Dave Cowan is back in the drivers seat of his Crazy Cow Racing Raptor Super 1650. Whilst he hasn’t raced much in 2016, Cowan is always a consistent driver and in the long tough races is always there at the finish. With Hayden Cowan sitting alongside they will be hoping for a victory against a stacked field of 1650’s

#229 – Joe Hawkins is another driver who has spent a bit of time away from the sport. But back behind the wheel of his Mitsubishi powered Bandit buggy is only going to get quicker and quicker as the race rolls on. Keep an eye on the Odin Auto Parts sponsored #229 machine as they tackle the daunting Three Springs track

#253 – John Flynn in the Toyota 4age powered Bullet Buggy has been around the sport for a long time. He knows a thing or 2 about how to get the job done on race weekend and his little red rocket is one of the fastest 1650’s in the state. Flynn and navigator James Preece come into this event as one of the favourites for a class win

#293 – Aaron and Bob Dark will be hoping that they can piece together a better race weekend than what they had at Badgingarra. After an uncharacteristic DNF, they still lead the class championship and will be looking to sew the title up here at the final round in Three Springs

#297 – Nathaniel Edwards is going to be a man on a mission this weekend. A disappointing result at Badgingarra handed the advantage to their rivals in the points chase, but mathematically there is still a slim hope for Edwards. Expect to see the Wreckless Racing Machine pushed to the limit as Edwards unleashes the power from his SR16 powered Southern Cross Buggy

The Superlite Class has only one competitor at the final round of the 2016 CAMS, PGS Industries WAORC. Neville Yeatman will be hoping for a strong run in his #606 Arctic Cat Superlite Buggy. The #606 team has had a testing year in 2016, but it’s great to see the Desert and Dust Racing Team back out on track again
