Nyora Raceway will give fans not one, but two Victorian titles on the same night this Saturday.

The Victorian title race for Speedway Sedans – Victoria Junior Sedan competitors in up to 1500cc engine powered race cars – whilst the Victorian Speedway Council Sports Sedans will also compete for their state title on the same night.

Also for the first time in years, the Formula 500s are appearing at the ‘Bullring’ for adults and juniors and the event is also supported by the Ladies Standard Saloons.

The best of the best in Victorian Junior Sedan racing will line-up in the Speedway Sedans Victorian Junior title with many of the cars that have already been competing at the track among those to watch out for.

Carter Metcalfe from Mildura is coming to Nyora for the first time, and so far on results he has been one of only two drivers matching it with winning drivers such as Jayden Bryant and Linken Paterson, the other being Jaxson Vella another who is also in the field.

Alexandra and Nyora registered race drivers make up much of the field and local competitors such as the Barton Family, Matilda Farrell, Jessica O’Donnell, Bryce Leek, Rowdy Andreatta, Riley Taylor and others fill up a healthy list of entrants.

In the Sports Sedan title race Victorian champion and Nyora member Jamie Paull leads the nominations. The line-up is a cracker and we could pencil in half the field for a potential win with all things going right for them.

Some of the drivers to watch though include Officer’s Dale Morrison, Pakenham’s Damien Miller a former champion, Ricky Cornwall, Warrick Taylor from Cranbourne, Tristan McGraw, David Donegan, Lee Beach from Ferntree Gully and Andrew Jordan.

Nyora has a great number of competitors in the class all looking for a home track advantage and a top result. Troy Glassborow, Jayde and Chris Aarts, Matt Reddecliffe, Simon Bent and Cameron Dike are some of those racers.

All the action on Saturday starts from 4.00pm whilst the gate will be open for public from around 11am for entry. The cost is great value at $20 for an adult, kids 12 to 16 are $10 each whilst all other children are free. Pensioners are $10 and a family ticket of two adults and two kids 12-16 is $50.
