Harders Leads Five Crown Series to Murphy & Chaffey Heading into Tonight's Round Three; the NSW Speedcar Championship!

March 12, 2016

Queenslander Michael Harders and the Speedsport Racing Auto Upgrade Q14 team currently lead the inaugural national Five Crown Speedcar Series, after two rounds in Queensland and Victoria, and 

three rounds remaining from NSW's Paul Murphy in The Speedway Shop Hardwyer Motorsport SA6 and QLD's Anthony Chaffey, who this week continues with the Jaxxon Wrapz V6 ride from Victoria!

 

Encompassing the five state championships scheduled for this season, the Five Crown Series kicked off at IBRP Carina Speedway in Bundaberg, QLD in December; where Harders claimed the win from fellow Queenslander Scott Wilson in the Q42, NSW's Paul Murphy in the SA6, NSW's Matt Smitth Q7 and QLD's Gavin Wesble in the Q17!

 

More recently, round two in February saw Victorian Domain Ramsay drive the absolute pants off his V71 machine to claim the Victorian Speedcar Championship at Premier Speedway, Warrnambool; ahead of NSW's Braydan Wilmington N89, Victoria's Paul Farrell V2 in a brilliant closing laps come-back, fellow Victorian Stewart Grant-Campbell V0 and South Australian Ben Hall in the S71. 

 

Tonight, the series continues at Sydney's Valvoline Raceway; home track to one of the most tightly contested Speedcar clubs in country; the Speedcar Association of NSW! 

 

With Valvoline Raceway having hosted the recent Australian Speedcar Championship, tonight's entrants will no doubt be prepared for the demands of this awesome circuit, and are ready to put it all on the line to make it into the Speedcar history books!
