Prolite Class Preview – Mid West Challenge

Posted on Updated on

The Prolite field always turn on some exciting racing, but in 2017 the racing has gone to another level! A field of 9 N/A rockets are ready to light up the time sheets at the Cochranes Transport Mid West Challenge

112 – Peter Lindeboom is a dark horse of the Prolite field. Quick and consistent and usually up the pointy end of the field when it counts. Keep an eye on this beautifully presented machine over the course of the weekend

115 – Steve Knowles will be hoping that the time is right for a clean run in his #115 machine. Whilst a series of minor issues have prevented him from seeing the checkered flag recently, Knowles has spent some time in the shed getting the buggy ready and will have his fingers crossed that this is the race that it pays off!

119 – Jared Percival is the man they are all chasing. Percival is leading the 2017 CAMS, Carnarvon Motel WAORC outright and whilst he would love to bag a class win, if we know Jared we think he will have one eye on the points situation throughout the race. Expect a calculated drive, but one where Percival will turn up the heat if required

161 – Nathaniel Edwards only knows 1 speed. Flat Out!!! The #161 machine is a proven race and championship winner and Edwards has been building to a big result. Could the Mid West Challenge be Edwards breakthrough race?

168 – Mark Jarrett is another one of the event organizers who has spent a lot of time preparing and grooming this brand new track. If Jarrett can use this track knowledge to his advantage he could spring a surprise on the rest of the Prolite field

171 – Mal Yeardley will be fired up and gunning for a big result at the Cochranes Transport Mid West Challenge. Sitting second in the outright points chase, Yeardley will need a strong prologue to get his weekend off to a flying start and deliver the results he needs to overhaul current leader Percival

181 – Stephen Hall has been the surprise packet of the field in 2017. Blisteringly quick, he has notched up some very impressive times and will be looking to convert that into a result at the end of the weekend. Dont be surprised to see the #181 Slowlite Racing buggy punching above its weight

195 – George Metaxas has spent the break in between WAORC rounds to head east and tackle the grueling Waikerie Riverland Enduro. With a strong finish in the bag, George will be hoping that this extra seat time will give him an edge this weekend

198 – Marcus Wells has jumped behind the wheel of the Wells Racing Prolite for the Mid West Challenge. Wells will be hoping that he can return to the form he showed at Perenjori where he finished in the top 3 outright
