:: Formula 500's WA- Johnson Extends Lead!

Sunday, January 25, 2015
Formula 500's WA

Troy Johnson last night extended his lead in the Perth Motorplex Track Championship as he raced away to a some solid heat results before claiming the fifteen lap feature event in an exceptional race.

Indeed the entire nights racing by the Formula 500's was exceptional, and many observers say they were the show of the night, with dices right through the field and thrilling finishes the name of the game.

The opening race saw Glenn Carstairs claiming a hard fought win over Johnson and Matt Brown, but it was race two that was the event of the night. Carstairs actually found himself going upside down but was able to restart and fight back to eleventh, but up front it was on like Donkey Kong. By the time the chequers flew it was Brock Nanovich who got the win by a mere 0.111 seconds over Luke Nardini and Adrian Haywood, while the top five, completed by Steven Ellement and Johnson, were separated by just a smidge over one second!

Of course, the final was not to disappoint, with the battles picking up right where they left off. Johnson, Nardini, Carstairs and Hooper were all over each other for the entire race, but as the chequers flew it was Johnson who got the nod once again over Carstairs, bouncing back brilliantly from the second heat, while Luke Nardini collected yet another podium finish in third place.

Well done to all drivers for what was an outstanding race meeting, and we look forward to seeing everyone back on track at the Perth Motorplex on the 7th of February!

:: Formula 500's WA Who Has The Right Formula?

Thursday, January 22, 2015
Formula 500's WA

The flying Formula 500's will this weekend return to the track as they compete in the sixth round of the Perth Motorplex Track Championship on Saturday night.

Twenty five of the pocket rockets have nominated for action, and it is anyone's game, with so many drivers capable of claiming the win. Nominations are headlined by Andrew Priolo, Steven Ellement and Troy Johnson, all of whom have claimed round wins this season at the Motorplex. Priolo claimed the opening show back in October, while Steven Ellement was the King in November. Two shows in December saw Troy Johnson and Priolo claim wins, with Johnson claiming the round win at the last show at the Motorplex in early January.

Matt Brown, Brett Janssen, Adrian Haywood, Chris Dymock and Luke Nardini have all also had race wins so far this season and all eight of these drivers are ready to go this weekend, each looking to add another win to their tally.

Of course, there is a whole host of other drivers hoping to make their mark this weekend, including Jamie Nardini, Gavin Connelly, David Sinagra, Cameron McKenzie and Shane Andersson in his brand new machine.

Making their Motorplex debuts this weekend will be young lady driver Tegan Broadwood and Ryan Higgs. Both have competed at tracks around the state and will be looking to get on the pace as quickly as they can come Saturday night. They will be joined by Bill Richards, Jayden McCuish and Matt Higgs, who all, despite having competed at the Motorplex regularly in seasons past, are yet to appear at the Kwinana Beach venue this season.

With such a huge field to compete across their three races, fans are certainly in for a treat and we look forward to seeing who can claim the champagne and the glory come feature race time. See you trackside!

:: Brisbane Formula 500 Club - Brown Doubles Up

Monday, January 05, 2015
Brisbane Formula 500 Club

The New Year couldn’t have started in better fashion for Kristin Brown, after she powered to her second Tyrepower 600 Super Series round victory of the 2014-15 season at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway.

By virtue of this latest round win, Brown has moved to the top of the current Tyrepower 600 Super Series point standings.

After spending the majority of the 15-lap feature race battling it with out with her younger brother, Charlie, Kristin Brown was able to shake off his challenges, which saw the siblings collide and spin (Charlie spun to a stop and therefore brought out a caution period, while Kristin managed to spin out but keep going) in the closing stages and resulted in Charlie failing to finish, and then go on to claim the win.

Making it a one-two finish for the women, an impressive Brooke Wanless recorded her best ever result in Formula 500s by joining Brown on the podium in a hard-fought second.

Sprintcar driver David ‘Blingy’ Muir picked up third place on the podium ahead of the remainder of the finishers Kaydon Iverson, two-time Australian Champion Mick Pronger, Billy Foyle, Mackay-based racer Brad Metcalfe, Ryan Skennar, Bryn Upshall, Royce Harvey and Nick Potts.

Joining Charlie Brown on the infield was Grant Harvey, while Nick Scholes and Bayden Ellston were both unable to start the feature race.

The women competitors dominated the heat races, with Wanless and Kristin Brown winning two of the three. The third and final heat race went to Muir.

On Boxing Day night (December 26) at Archerfield Speedway, the club-show feature race was dominated by Foyle.

Foyle, who travelled from Cairns in north Queensland, started the feature race from pole position and then paced his rivals for the entire 15-lap distance.

Joining Foyle on the podium was Skennar and Nathan Pronger in second and third place respectively. Outside the podium finishers were Iverson, Kristin Brown, Muir, Wanless, Upshall, Royce Harvey, Adrian Farrell and Potts.

Grant Harvey was the only non-finisher in the feature race, while Ken Newton failed to take his place in the feature-race field.

Earlier in the night, Nathan Pronger won two of the three heat races, and Skennar won the other.

The seventh round of the Tyrepower 600 Super Series will be fought out at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway on the Sunday night of January 25.

Current Tyrepower 600 Super Series Point Standings
1: Kristin Brown - 329 points
2: Kaydon Iverson - 323
3: Charlie Brown - 296
4: Brooke Wanless - 279
5: Dale Shilleto - 232
6: Ryan Skennar - 226
7: Cody Maroske - 220
8: Nick Scholes - 207

:: Formula 500's WA -Johnson Masters Muster

Sunday, January 04, 2015
Formula 500's WA

Troy Johnson tonight had an almost perfect Muster at the Perth Motorplex as he claimed a fourth and a win in his heats before claiming the all important fifteen lap final.

The feature victory was a shot in the arm also for Johnsons Perth Motorplex Track Championship points as he now holds a twelve point advantage over second placed Chris Dymock, with Luke Nardini just three points further back.

Johnson led away the feature from the beginning, which was quickly bought under caution on lap two as Gavin Connelly came to a rest in turn four. Johnson led away, closely followed by Nardini and Ellement, while behind them cars were jostling for position all over the track. Tom Hooper, who had repaired his car after an earlier flip, was sitting comfortably inside the top ten before suddenly slowing and heading infield, several cars lucky not to hit him. However, up front it was still all Johnson, while fourth placed Jeremy Saffin was the next to head infield. With two to go Nardini closed right up on Johnson, the two side by side as the chequers flew, Johnson just getting the win ahead of Nardini and Ellement.

The opening stanza saw nineteen of the pocket rockets lining up to take the green. Brett Janssen, debuting his new car, started off the front row and got the initial start, but the field was called back to get another start. The second attempt saw Janssen slow and head infield, then in turn three Tom Hooper clipped the back of another car and rolled over a number of times. He climbed out under his own steam and the race was free to start again.

Unfortunately we started with four cars less after various dramas saw cars head infield during the restart. Luke Nardini was the big mover, being elevated to the front row for the restart and he jumped away to the lead with former state champion Steven Ellement chasing hard. Chris Dymock settled into third spot while Troy Johnson made his way past David Sinagra for fourth. As the laps wound down the order didn't change and Nardini scored the win over Ellement and Dymock.

The second heat saw the yellows come on early as Trystan Caley and Brett Janssen found themselves stranded in turn two. Ths second start saw Troy Johnson away into the lead, closely followed by Brock Nanovich, Gavin Connelly and Tom Hooper in his repaired machine. Hooper jumped into third and maintained it until the yellow lights came on with two laps to go for a spun car. In the end it was Johnson who held his lead over Nanovich and Hooper.

The Formula's now have a three week break and will return to the Perth Motorplex on the 24th of January. They were scheduled to compete in the next round of the West Coast Series on the 17th of this month but the event appears to have been cancelled. Stay tuned for more details.
