:: Brisbane F500 - Williams Succeeds but Iverson Conquers

Wednesday, April 27, 2016
Brisbane Formula 500 Club

While Liam Williams scored his fourth KRE F500 Championship Series round win at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway last Saturday night, Kaydon Iverson went on to secure the Series victory for the 2015-16 season.
After qualifying on pole position for the feature race, Williams, who is the current and two-time Australian Champion, led from start to finish, crossing the finish line to win the 12th and final round of the KRE F500 Championship Series, ahead of nine other feature-race finishers.
Current Queensland Champion Iverson finished behind Williams in second-place, scoring enough points to hold on to his KRE F500 Championship Series lead and come away with the victory honours.
Displaying consistent form previously, rookie James Kennedy finished in third and it was his first feature-race podium finish for the season.
The feature-race finishers were rounded out by Ryan Skennar, Graham Williams, Piper Ogilvie, Adrian Farrell, Phill Roberts and Brad Van Elswyk.
Tristan Johnson, who had started out of position two in the feature race, managed to take the lead from Williams in turn one of the opening lap. However, his lead was short-lived as he almost immediately got turned around, causing his car to spin into oncoming traffic, which saw him heavily hit by Ryan McNamara. While both drivers were physically unharmed, the damage to their cars was too extensive, forcing them to retire from the race.
Royce Harvey was also forced to retire from the feature race, along with Nathan Pronger, who suffered electrical issues.
Charlie Brown’s KRE F500 Championship Series hopes went up in flames, literally, when fire engulfed his engine during the running of the second heat race, taking him out of contention for the point standings honours. While he was not injured, Brown was extremely disappointed with the outcome, after heading into the event in second place in the point standings.
Earlier in the night, the heat-race wins went the way of Johnson, Liam Williams and Iverson.
Final KRE F500 Championship Series Point Standings:
1: Kaydon Iverson - 780 points
2: Ryan Skennar - 744
3: Charlie Brown - 700
4: James Kennedy - 663
5: Kristin Brown - 652
6: Liam Williams - 562
7: Phill Roberts - 407
8: Tristan Johnson - 387
9: Adrian Farrell - 364
10: Ryan McNamara - 352

:: FORMULA 500S -Williams Continues Winning Ways

Friday, April 15, 2016
Brisbane Formula 500 Club

Current and two-time Australian Champion Liam Williams took out victory in the 11th and penultimate round of the KRE F500 Championship Series last Saturday night at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway and it was his fifth feature-race win in a row.

After Williams qualified on pole position for the feature race ahead of his partner Kristin Brown and her younger brother Charlie Brown, Williams claimed a solid victory, with the Brown siblings, Charlie and Kristin, swapping positions during the 15-lap journey and then went on to finish in second and third respectively. As a result of this podium finish, Charlie Brown has now moved within nine points of KRE F500 Championship Series standings leader and current Queensland Champion Kaydon Iverson with only one round remaining.

Ryan Skennar finished just off the podium in fourth ahead of Tristan Johnson, Graham Williams, Adrian Farrell and the final finisher Royce Harvey.

Iverson endured a tough run throughout the night and he was forced to retire along with newcomer Piper Ogilvie, when the latter spun her Qld # 51 car, which saw her collide with an innocent Iverson on lap eight. The only other retirement of the feature race was James Kennedy, who recorded a rare DNF.

Youngster Ryan McNamara suffered a crash in the second heat race that left him with a heavily damaged car and brought his night to a premature end.

Earlier in the night, Williams, Kristin Brown and Skennar scored heat-race wins.

The KRE F500 Championship Series will continue with the 12th and final round taking place on the Saturday night of April 23 at Archerfield Speedway.

Current KRE F500 Championship Series Point Standings (after 11 completed rounds)
1: Kaydon Iverson - 709 points
2: Charlie Brown - 700
3: Ryan Skennar - 680
4: Kristin Brown - 630
5: James Kennedy - 592
6: Liam Williams - 479
7: Phill Roberts - 357
8: Tristan Johnson - 345
9: Ryan McNamara - 337
10: Scott Farmer - 322

:: F500 - Williams Triumphs, As Newcomers Impress

Tuesday, March 29, 2016
Brisbane Formula 500 Club

Fresh from capturing his second Australian Formula 500s Title win last weekend at Gunnedah Speedway in country NSW, Liam Williams has managed to come out on top in last Friday night’s Easter Formula 500 Double Header opener at Toowoomba’s Hi-Tec Oils Speedway, but two newcomers in the form of Ryan McNamara and Piper Ogilvie impressed.
After winning two out of his heat races earlier in the night, Williams, aboard the Aus # 1 Jim Muir-owned machine, started the feature race from pole position. Williams was able to continue his great form on the night and blasted to the lead from the drop of the green flag. Once out in front, Williams was able to pace the field for the entire 20-lap distance and come away with a comfortable victory at the fall of the chequered flag.
For Williams, this was his third victory in Queensland of the current season. This isn’t a bad strike rate, especially considering that Williams and his car owner, Jim Muir, joined forces just after the Christmas-New Year period.
While Williams showed his class out in front, there were two drivers with less than 12 months of Formula 500 experience – McNamara and Ogilvie – who showed plenty of fight. McNamara drove strongly all night and was rewarded with a second-place finish, while Ogilvie showed her improved speed and completed the podium in third. For both McNamara and Ogilvie, these performances have boosted their confidence to no end. They both showed their progression as drivers in what are the first full seasons in the class for both drivers.
James Kennedy once again missed out on that elusive podium in fourth. Kennedy finished ahead of current Queensland Champion and newly-crowned Australia # 2 Kaydon Iverson, Kristin Brown, Tristan Johnson, Brad Van Elswyk, Graham Williams, Phill Roberts, Alan Iverson, Adrian Farrell, Royce Harvey and the final finisher Grant Harvey in 14th.
Earlier in the night, Williams (x 2) and Kennedy were the three heat-race winners.
The second and final night of the Easter Formula 500 Double Header was fought out the following night at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway; however, the feature race was unable to be run, due to wet weather. Prior to the feature race, the heat-race action resulted in wins being shared between Ryan Skennar and Ryan McNamara.
The KRE F500 Championship Series will resume with the 11th round to be held at Archerfield Speedway on the Saturday night of April 9.

:: Aust F500 Championship - Gunnedah

Monday, March 21, 2016
Gunnedah Speedway

Friday and Saturday night the 18th and 19th of March saw the running of the Australian Formula 500 Championship. At the official dinner on the Thursday night the driver’s preferences were split between wanting a slick or a tacky track. As it turned out we provided both.
The weather once again intervened on the Friday night with a couple of showers interrupting the three rounds of heats. Only due to a spectacular effort by our track curator Herbie were we able to continue racing.
As a result the track was super fast and tacky with very little incidents apart from a gentle tip over. Not all drivers were able to handle these conditions and a number of early favourites struggled to collect points.
Saturday saw a complete reversal of conditions with a warm day seeing the track turn from tacky to slick. Once again Herbie worked his magic and the track remained rut free all night. Everyone was desperate to do well and there were a number of stoppages for roll overs and collisions. The strength of the cars was highlighted with the majority able to continue and more importantly no one injured.
The final saw 10 Victorians, 8 Queenslanders and one driver each for NSW, Tasmania and Western Australia. James Aranyosi was the leading point scorer followed by Tyler Beasy and Tasmanian Marcus Kelly. Defending champ Dylan Wilshire started from the rear after failing to qualify on points for the final.
Once again the race started in a frantic fashion with a number of incidents taking out Kelly and Wilshire among a number of others.
Once the race settled down Liam Williams took charge and was never headed. Liam was followed home by Kaydon Iverson and Grant Stansfield.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all Formula 500 crews and family for putting on such a great show.
The V8 Super Sedan final was taken out by Wayne Dick after a race long battle with Mark Towers followed by Darren Anning. Dick and Towers ran side by side swapping the lead on a number of occasions. Unfortunately for Mark whose power steering did not work all night he ran out of arms in the final laps.
The Street Stocks stepped up to fill the gap after the Legend cars let us down. The running of the Greta Smith Memorial Classic lived up to its name. In a race that was both memorable and classic Brendan Wakeman and defending race holder Shane Carlson battled it out all the way. Brendan led for most of the race with Shane poking his nose through a number of times without making the pass. That was until the final corner when Shane set up the perfect outside move to cross the line with inches to spare. Ash Hall was able to watch all the action from his third place. ... Read

:: Formula 500's WA McKenzie Grabs Bunbury Win!

Wednesday, March 09, 2016
Formula 500's WA

Cameron McKenzie last weekend claimed his best result of season 2015/16 as he raced away to victory in the fifth round of the West Coast Series at Bunbury Speedway.
McKenzie had a dominant night, claiming the two heat wins to start from pole position in the feature, then going on to lead every lap and claim a strong win by just under two seconds.
He started on the front row with Ashleigh Oldfield, but it was Craig Bottrell, driving the Matt Brown #4 machine who would quickly make his way into second, a position he too would not relinquish throughout the twelve lap feature distance.
Behind the leading duo was a good battle between Ryan Higgs and Troy Johnson for third, with Higgs holding the position for the first few laps before Johnson made a great pass, with Johnson coming home in third place at the chequers behind winner McKenzie and second placed Bottrell.
Unfortunately, as this happened, there was an incident between a couple of cars, that ended with Ben Stockdale going upside down hard, requiring medical attention. We wish Ben all the best in his recovery.
Meanwhile, it had already been a rough and tumble night, with Bill Richards the first to go upside down in turn four of the opening heat. He was able to repair the car anf continue competing in the final tworaces of the night, but the same couldn’t be said for newly crowned WA Champion Thomas Davies, who rode the wheel of another competitor as they attempted to avoid an incident in front of them, leaving Davies going headlong into the wall and destroying the title winning car.
Davies now faces a race against time to get the car ready for the upcoming Australian Titles in Gunnedah, NSW.
Courtesy of his win, McKenzie has been able to close the gap to Davies in the overall West Coast Series points standings, with Davies now leading by just thirty seven markers. Ashleigh Oldfield has moved into third place overall, while Brent Lockwood and Bill Richards now round out the top five in the series so far.
The Formula 500’s in Western Australia now have a short break for the Australian Title, before the action resumes here at the Perth Motorplex on the 9th of March.
All the best to the WA teams heading over to the Australian Title and fingers crossed they can bing the #1 back to the west!

:: Brisbane Formula 500 - Williams Wins Again

Wednesday, March 09, 2016
Brisbane Formula 500 Club

Liam Williams drove to yet another strong win in last Saturday night’s 10th round of the KRE F500 Championship Series at Toowoomba’s Hi-Tec Oils Speedway.
Williams’s second round victory of the 2015-16 season came from starting in second position alongside pole sitter and current Queensland Champion Kaydon Iverson, who he was able to real in and pass on lap nine. From there, the Jim Muir-owned SQ # 26 car driver led a non-stop race all the way through to the chequered flag.

Across the finish line behind the 2011 Australian Champion was current KRE F500 Championship Series point standings leader Iverson, while Ryan McNamara recorded his best result of the season by completing the podium in third.

Finishing just off the podium in fourth was dual feature-race winner, Ryan Skennar and then James Kennedy in fifth. Rookie Piper Ogilvie enjoyed her best performance of the season in sixth ahead of come-back racer Graham Williams, Kristin Brown, Adrian Farrell and Brad Vee in 10th.

The only non-finisher of the feature race was Charlie Brown, who suffered mechanical due to his heat-race three crash. Another driver in the wars earlier in the night was Nathan Pronger. The multiple state champion recently made a return after 12-month layoff, but his run on Saturday night was brought to a premature end after the opening heat race, due to mechanical woes.

In the heat-race action earlier in the night, the wins went to Williams (x 2) and Skennar.
The focus for a number of Brisbane-based drivers now is the Australian Title at Gunnedah Speedway (North-Western NSW) that is going to be held on the Saturday night of March 19. The next round of the KRE F500 Championship Series is going to be fought out on the Saturday night of April 9 at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway.
Current KRE F500 Championship Series Point Standings (after 10 rounds)
1: Kaydon Iverson - 676 points
2: Charlie Brown - 617
3: Ryan Skennar - 614
4: James Kennedy - 555
5: Kristin Brown - 545
6: Liam Williams - 386
7: Phill Roberts - 357
8: Scott Farmer - 322
9: Ryan McNamara - 318
10: Adrian Farrell - 280
