Welcome to the home of the NSW Lightning & Litre Sprintcars

McTaggart takes NSW Title!

The Atlantic Oil  NSW Title was run and won with veteran Anthony McTaggart claiming the victory and title honours on a super racey Nowra Speedway! Second place was Danny Stone getting the title monkey off his back ahead of 3rd place Chris Davis. Davis literally getting the chain on and back in the car to make it out in the nick of time. All 3 guys broke away and battled hard all night establishing themselves as the class of the field.

 
It was a tough night but by the end Aj McTaggart wasn’t going to be denied the beautiful NSW Title trophy proudly supplied by Aok Trophies. Drivers and teams sealing the night with a BBQ after the event thanks to team Stone with smiles all round.


First B Grader was a battle right to the wire between Mel Priestley and Matt Moore in the V25 litre car. Both rookies had a real battle of it all night literally separated by a matter of a car length most the time so in honour of the performance we gave both drivers recognition as the C&A Mobile Sound & Communications rookie of the night. It was a brilliant show again from the rookies!

 

The title was well supported by our friends from the Victorian Mini Sprints with 3 cars making the journey to join the field having a brilliant time among the field of NSW drivers. Thanks to Dave Alie, Ally Moore and Matt Moore for all the support!

  

Heat winners Scott Moir (H1), Chris Davis (H2) and Danny Stone (H3).


Some big hits took a toll through the heat races. The always fast Jordan Binskin caught a wheel and took the turn 3 wall on at speed while airborne, which destroyed the front end of the 6n car and required fence repairs. The v26 of Ally Moore also fell victim to the wall over on turn 4 with a big dump there ending what was looking to be a solid night to that point. Scott Moir was looking really fast and a serious contender until a broken torsion stop ended his night backing him into the turn 2 wall. Fresh from his Victorian title win the week before Pete Styles also fell victim to a minor electrical fire which ended his night.

  


Teams now rally to turn the cars around for the next round of the Atlantic Oil Country Series which heads north to Tamworth on the 24th March as a chance to get some tuning in for the National Title there later in April.


Styles parks it as Vic #1 

It was a big weekend for Pete Styles taking the Victorian Mini Sprint Title win at Nyora Raceway after leading it all the way from local guns Darren Shnoor 2nd, Andrew Burleigh 3rd, Owen Shnoor 4th, Dave Alie 5th and Ally Moore 6th. This was a big confidence builder for Styles going into this weekends NSW Title at Nowra Speedway.

 

It wasnt without challenge though, as gasser Danny Stone mounted a heavy challenge early taking it right to Styles until the left rear shock came free. Danny hung onto a wild handling car until the rear end eventually let go dropping the chain. A tough blow for Danny after being the speed man all night.

The meeting was on all accounts a huge success with beer, bbq and yarns flowing well into the night after it was all said and done. 

We would like to thank the Victorian Mini Sprints for their hospitality and welcoming atmosphere, as well as the Victorian Speedway Council for making this possible. A brilliantly run event at an awesome short track venue made for an excellent foundation for more to come.


Reed Returns to the Top

Last season's Valvoline Raceway track champion Matt Reed returned to the top step of the podium for the first time this season recording a win as the 4th driver to take the top step from 6 shows run. He was pushed all the way by second place getter Aj McTaggart but Reed didn’t falter. Reed taking the win by just 0.4 of a second at the final flag.

Third place went to gasser Danny Stone ahead of the returning driver Scott Moir with very impressive fourth place. It was a great return for Scott after some terrible luck early in the season.

The Bullet Racing Wheels hard charger went to Brett Davies after he managed a 5th place after starting from 10th in the grid.

Interactive Projects series leader Pete Styles put in another consistent run for 6th but needed more as the end result dropped much needed points in his battle with Aj McTaggart for the VR Track Champion. This will now bring it all down to the final round decider on the 7th April to decide the top 4 positions in the track championship at least!!!

C&A Mobile Sound & Communications rookie of the night was a 3 way battle that went to John Ferguson over Mick Connolly after Mel Priestley was forced to dnf when the car refused to refire after a red light stoppage. The red light stoppage for Garrad Latham, after he flipped the Atwood 78n car in turn 4. The three rookies to that point had put on a heck of a battle all night!!!

Hard luck story of the feature was definitely Chris Davis after more random and terrible luck again cost him an almost certain podium position. The 4n machine tore a radius rod mounting post clean off the chassis which dropped the chain mid way through the race. The freak breakage forced Chris to dnf from third place.

Hard luck stories of the night didn’t stop with Chris though, coming thick and fast in the early heat races aswell!!

 

Heat 1 it was Garrad Latham blew the pulsar block wide open expiring the immaculate 26n machine instantly. He finished the night in the 78n machine but unfortunately brushes with the inside wall ended his night early with that rollover in the feature.

Heat 2 it was this seasons dominant Rookie, Dan Morris and the consistent points leader, Dean Eden both dropping engines. Dan breaking the crank and Dean dropping a cylinder, making it a tough night for the Newcastle boys.

Lightning Sprints return to Parramatta for the finale round 8 on the 7th April


Stone Wins at Redline Raceway


Danny Stone put down a dominant performance at Redline Raceway to take the win as the boys ventured south to run with the Victorian Mini Sprints. It was a curfew shortened event supporting the Australian AMCA title. The boys paired speed and consistency in the heat races which was enough for Danny Stone and Pete Stylesto claim 1st and 3rd places respectively. Local gun Jason Lynn split the pair for 2nd.

It was a great day out with a real social buzz amongst the teams and drivers. We would like to thank the Victorian Mini Sprints, Redline Raceway and the Victorian Speedway Council for the top shelf hospitality as well as the teams and drivers that made the day as fun as it was.


Gilgandra glory for Davis


Chris Davis proved too strong on a dusty and slick Gil Speedway last night to take Event 3 of the Atlantic Oil Country Series. On a track that went rubber down Chris lead it all the way to keep a firm grasp on the country series lead.

Danny Stone ran all but the last lap in 2nd place when a costly mistake gave Dean Eden the opportunity he needed to snatch 2nd. Dean didn’t need a second look in claiming the spot while Danny managed to recover to finish 3rd ahead of Brett Davies 4th. After running much of the race in 3rd, Pete Styles rounded out the top 5 having slipped back on the mid race restart after David Atwood had spun the Hulk machine.

AJ McTaggart was the hard luck story of the night. McTaggart put in a stellar performance through all the heat races to place him highest on points going to the feature. Just as the pole qualifier took his grid position a fuel fitting broke taking him out of the race.


C&A Mobile Sound & Communications rookie of the night went to a jubilant Mick Connolly after he put in a personal best performance on his very first visit to Gilgandra. There wouldn’t have been a driver more stoked than Mick to finally get his hands on the prize last night. Bullet Racing Wheels hard charger was a 4 way tie between Mick Connolly, Chris Davis, Brett Davies and Dean Eden. Starting deepest in the field we gave the honour to Mick after coming from the back.

David Atwood and Rookie Series leader Mel Priestley rounded out the finishers to close out the night both bagging healthy points towards the championship.

Heat race winners were McTaggart (H1), Styles (H2) & Stone (H3).

      

 


B Grade honours for Styles at QLD title

The action was thick and fast from the first green flag to the last lap of the night in the battle for the QLD title. In elbows up driving, Kurt Wilson’s night ended early after a big crash in Heat 2 which also took out another local contender Jason Rae. Both boys ok but series damage to the Australia #1 car.

Our local boys struggled early relegating them to starting deep in the field for the feature but dug deep to charge forward with Danny Stone running just off the podium when his car stalled under the late race caution (relegated him rear for the restart).

After the final flag and some confusion at podium over the 2nd place finisher Wayne Iacono (lost a  muffler) the official feature race positions for the Stockmans Civil & Plant QLD Title were:

Queensland #1 – Keith Blatch
2nd - Kirsty Kelly
3rd - Aaron Kelly
4th - Jim Kennedy
5th - Pete Styles (1st B Grader)
6th - Jeremy Hassell (1st Litre Car)
7th - Danny Stone 
8th - Andrew Sparks 
DQ - Wayne Iacono (mechanical)
DNF - Jason George, Sean Iacono, David Van Vegchel, Michael Gollagher

 

Queensland #1 – Keith Blatch


Stone wins at Archerfield!

Danny Stone took the feature win at the 30th December show at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway!!! Well done Danny!


 

McTaggart back on top!

Anthony McTaggart was on point tonight from heat races to the feature, showing blistering pace by coming from 6th in the grid to win Round 6 of the Interactive Projects track championship. AJ was too strong in the tricky Valvoline Raceway conditions, pairing experience with speed to punch out a composed win. Some very happy fans were on hand to claim the prize bag after the show too.

 

With a deep top 8 inversion drawn AJ and Chris Davis shared the Bullet Racing Wheels hard charger award, after both guys came forward an impressive 5 positions at the final flag.


It was a race that went green to chequers again which surprised many from the outset after the field went 4 wide into turn 1 on both attempts to start. It looked like it was set to be all Jordan Binskin as he charged to the front from 8th place. He and McTaggart dialled the setup nicely as the only cars posting mid 14 second laps on the very slick track. Unfortunately Binskin retired with a mechanical issue at lap 10 so we never got to see what could have been with those two guys set to battle to the end.

Second place went to Chris Davis with a thrilling late race pass pouncing on Danny Stone as the field caught lapped traffic. Consistency is paying off as 4th place Dean Eden held off hard charging Matt Reed in 5th and Pete Styles in 6th place as the last car on the lead lap.

Dan Morris 7th managed to get the best of the team boss Brett Davies in 8th after C&A Mobile Sound & Communications Rookie of the night managed to take an impressive around the outside pass.


Home 9th was David Atwood, Mick Connolly in 10th and Mel Priestley rounded out the finishers in 11th.

Hard luck story had to go to Jordan Binskin going into the feature highest points, only to take the lead early and have to pull in just 10 laps from home with engine issues.

Heat race winners were Binskin (H1), McTaggart (H2) and Reed (H3).

Lightning Sprints return to Parramatta on the 2nd February supporting the Australian Wingless Sprint Title.

 

 

Litre Cars back on track!!!

Teams are buzzing at the highly anticipated return of Andrew Johnson. After a number of years away Scarey is back in the Ford Laser powered 22n and is sure to make a quick impression out there!

Peter Archer should make his return in the 10n Weston Machine Shop car soon with a fresh E15 Pulsar engine by D&C Race Engines now ready to go hurt some feelings.

They will join Dan Morris in the 50n and Mick Connolly in 23n who have already made solid impressions with their E15 Pulsar powered machines.

The diff drives have plenty to cheer about with a total of 7 cars on track now accounting for a third of the field!

 

 

Binskin back on top at VR


Young gun Jordan Binskin charged through the pack early going from 6th to 2rd in just over a lap while punching his way to the Bullet Racing Wheels hard charger award. In a green to chequers race Binskin ultimately went on to claim the Interactive Projects round 5 win after hitting the front with just 4 laps to go!

Early leader Pete Styles broke away on a bottom to top, black and slick racetrack with Binskin hot on his hammer. Styles looked to have the three-Pete all but done until lap 15, when he jumped the turn 4 cushion running wide, and that’s all Binskin need to pounce. Styles recovered quickly, re-joining the track to give chase and finish 2nd at the line to make it personal best 4 podiums from 4 shows held at Valvoline Raceway.

Third place went to Dean Eden in the 99 machine just ahead of Anthony McTaggart who was right on him all the way to the final flag. McTaggart the pole car made a gutsy comeback after dropping to 6th when the engine stuttered coming to green. Another consistent run by both Eden and McTaggart banking valuable championship points.


Chris Davis brought the Atlantic Oil #9 machine home 5th ahead of another hard charger Matt Reed in 6th. Reed coming to the track from the Dyno Tune just missing heat 2 had to come from the back.

Dan Morris claimed the C&A Mobile Sound & Communications rookie of the night in 7th with another impressive drive he's raising plenty of eyebrows in the #50 Litre Car.


Jason Davis brought the #4 car home in 8th ahead of his wife Monique Davis in 9th substituting for Mel Priestley after she fell sick.

Hard luck story of the show was Danny Stone with the gasser jumping to second early chasing Styles until a rapidly deflating right rear tyre set him back to 6th. On lap 15 the chain let go and that was all she wrote for Danny. Dean Meadows was up on the wheel wrestling the Hulk all night, making the tough call to turn it in at lap 4 to protect the car in super slick conditions.

 

Eden too strong at Goulburn!


Dean Eden put in a dominant performance quickly adapting to tough conditions through the heat races proudly flying the Atlantic Oil flag on his way to top qualifier for the feature. The former national champ was not to be denied leading start to finish taking the win in honour of his Aunty on the night.

Danny Stone and Chris Davis took the battle to Eden all the way in a 3 way battle up front that concluded with Danny in 2nd and Chris in 3rd. Both guys were right there to pounce at the slightest hesitation by Eden.

The crowd core flutes and show bags were a big hit with 3 very happy kids taking home the goodies and joining the drivers for post race photos.


Earlier heat race winner Anthony McTaggart claimed 4th in another 4 car dog fight over Brett Davies, Jordan Binskin and Dan Morris.

C&A Mobile Sound & Communications Rookie of the night and Bullet Racing Wheels hard charger honours went to Dan Morris as he moved forward early from the rear.

It was a tough night for Pete Styles right out of the trailer after suspension damage and a broken chain dropped him out from the very first hot lap. Re-joining Heat 3 he rode out the night to finish 8th in the feature.

In another consistent and composed drive, Mel Priestley in the #14 car built speed through the night under very challenging conditions, another happy fan joining her in the pits afterwards for autographs.

 

Pink Night Trifecta for Styles!

Your Interactive Projects feature race winner made it 3 Valvoline Raceway podiums in a row last night with a heartfelt win on Pink Night. Styles wasn’t going to be denied the win with his mum in the stands as a breast cancer survivor, leading it start to finish in another action packed feature!

2nd place was Brett Davies in the 9n Atlantic Oil machine with a dominant run all night over Dean Eden in the 99n again backing up his consistent and sharp form taking the final podium position.

In a perfect result for D&C Race Engines, rookie Dan Morris also took provisional 4th place, charging into the Bullet Racing Wheels Hard Charger and the C&A Mobile Sound & Communications Rookie of the night after starting 10th. The 50n traditional Litre Car carving up the field proved its on pace again this year.


Fundraising efforts were brilliant for the National Breast Cancer Foundation with Scott Moir raising $500 for the front wing auction and Danny Stone raising $340 in pink ribbon sales! Well done guys!!!

It was a night of hard luck for the guns with Jordy Binskin going in as the top qualifier and new lap record holder in a shock run out he was unable to fire the car. After a nightmare heat race run, club champion Chris Davis was roping in the leader down for an attack in traffic when he dropped a chain just a few laps from home. Early ends to the night also came in Heat 1 for Ben Morgan dropping an engine along with Matt Reed out with a potential fuel issue.



Styles takes Gold Cup as maiden win

In a race packed with thrills, spills and faught right to the end, the Interactive Projects Sponsored Gold Cup winner for 2017/18 was Pete Styles! Coming from 4th place on the grid, the B Grade driver put on a patient and composed drive around the top side to hit the front with just a few laps to go to claim his first ever feature race win, the perpetual Blue Ribbon Hunter Valley Gold Cup.

Valvoline Raceway track champion Matt Reed claimed 2nd place having come from 6th on the grid. He was a real chance for a win as he took the battle to Brett Davies for most of the race, as was Chris Davis after he lead early setting the fastest lap of the race (14.609) before clutch failure ended his charge. Brett Davies took out the final podium position in 3rd ahead of Dean Eden in 4th.

In a corrected result, Jordan Binskin took the Bullet Racing Wheels hard charger coming from the back by climbing from 10th to 5th after heat race mishaps hurt his chances badly. He was always a favourite to go back to back, but luck just didnt fall his way on the night. Pole setter Ben Poodle Morgan fell back to finish 6th ahead of Stephen Allen in 7th.

Legend Car front runner Dan Morris on his first show in the litre sprint, charged from 12th to 8th to bag C&A Mobile Sound & Communications rookie of the night honours with an impressive display of speed ahead of fellow rookies Mel Priestley in 9th and Mick Connolly rounding out the top 10.

Spare a thought for Justin Pirlo though after thrashing all week to put in a fresh engine he got tangled with David Atwood (who also spent the weeks thrashing to change engine) on the back stretch for Lap 1 and found the inside wall hard. He launched the 28x car into the air with a massive crash writing the 28 car off in what could be a season ending crash for the team. Atwood survived that crash but retired on lap 5, after gasser Danny Stone brought out the second red light when he too launched the 47 car along infield wall in another huge crash, after tangling with a lapped car.
Both Danny and Justin climbed out uninjured from some big crashes.

In heat race action AOK Trophies top qualifier Ben Poodle Morgan took his first ever feature race Pole Position on a lapt time count back as highest points, having tied with Brett Davies. Dean Eden claimed heat 3 with fastest lap of the night at 14.395. Heat 2 went to Pete Styles and Heat 1 went to Brett Davies.


Lightning Sprints next face off at Valvoline Raceway for Ultimate Pink Night on the 25th November.

Binskin bounces back 

Jordan Binskin made a big statement tonight taking a comfortable win in Event 1 of the Atlantic Oil country series championship at Nowra Speedway! Coming from row 3 of the grid he sliced through the field to take the lead early and was not going to be denied from there.

Aj McTaggart backed up last weekend's VR win with another podium, home in 2nd place with a consistent, quick and composed drive all night.

Third place went to Danny Stone with another impressive drive. It wasn't without challenge though as Dean Eden went 2 wide with Stone on the closing laps fighting all the way to the chequered flag.

Rookie Mel Priestley was a surprise late entry going on to secure C&A Mobile Sound & Communications rookie of the night with a solid drive all night for her first night out.

Heat races were an all in affair with wins going to McTaggart (H1), Binskin (H2) and Styles (H3).

The surprise results came from Chris Davis after going into the feature race top qualifier, a faulty roll over sensor robbed him of power ultimately relegating him to settle for 6th behind Brett Davies who also seemed a tick off the pace as the race wound down. Styles was issued a ROF at the caution with 2 laps to go taking him out of the mid pack battles.

It was another brutal night for Scott Moir after bouncing back from car trouble last week, he was sidelined after the fire crew and paramedics were called to what appeared to be an oil fire at his feet. Thankfully Scotty is ok.

Lightning Sprints now return to Valvoline Raceway for the Gold Cup on the 11th of November.


McTaggart back on the money


Anthony McTaggart took home an impressive win to take Round 2 of the Interactive Projects track championship. After a horror last season this is a great start for team McTaggart with definite signs there is more speed to come.

Pete Styles finished second after leading the feature race early. He took full advantage of the inverted grid draw blazing away until a mid race caution. Back to green Styles made a costly mistake in turn 1 running wide off 2 which was all vertan Aj McTaggart needed.

Third place went to Danny Stone coming from 6th in the grid with another impressive drive showing winning speed all night from the drop of the first flag.

Rookie John Ferguson secured C&A Mobile Sound & Communications rookie of the night with an impressive drive that showed great speed early.

The surprise results came from high points drivers with Jordan Binskin out on the first attempt to take green after the field came together in turn 1, and Matt Reed as he was unable to break through the mid pack to reach the front.

Comeback of the night came from club champion Chris Davis as he came from 10th to 5th as the biggest mover of the night after snapping a chain in heat 1.
Lightning Sprints will be back at Valvoline Raceway for the Gold Cup on the 11th of November.

Practice Night - Strong numbers among bumper fields

Ben Poodle Morgan at flight in the #66 machine - Jigsaw Photography

About 9 cars joined the bumper numbers dialing in at last Saturday night's Valvoline Raceway practice session. A few veterans took some test and tune time with 5 new rookies on hand to cut their teeth. All drivers came back smiling as the night went on.

Scott Moir returned to iron out his engine issues, joining Ben Morgan and team McTaggart also keen to get early testing done in time to set up their season ahead. Brett Davies fired up the new #9 car now trialling EFI on the Honda K20.

Learning curves were again steeper for some rookies over others, with a couple experiencing engine woes on the night. It was hard luck for Monique Davis with a blown engine to finish her night, while John Ferguson, Dan Morris, Mel Priestley and Kyle Thomas all managed to complete a solid night building pace each run out.

2017/18 looks even more promising building on last years success with car count set to increase as the season progresses. Make sure to be trackside on the 14th October when round 1 of our championship kicks off at Valvoline Raceway
