:: Drivers Primed for Formula 500 Queensland Title

Monday, March 23, 2015
Brisbane Formula 500 Club

A solid field of drivers will be converging at Brisbaneís Archerfield Speedway this Saturday night (March 28) for the running of the Ian Boettcher Race Parts supported Queensland Formula 500 Title.

Heading the 33-car field is two-time and defending Queensland Champion Dale Shilleto. The Fraser Coast-based racer has been one of the stateís leading drivers and also headed down south over the Christmas-New Year period and came away with the Speedweek Series win. With form on his side, Shilleto is at short odds to make it back-to-back Queensland Title wins.

Other home state drivers amongst the leading contenders are the Brown siblings, Kristin and two-time Queensland Champion Charlie. The Brisbane-based racers are currently running one-two in the Tyrepower 600 Super Series point standings. The Browns are going to be right up there at the pointy end of the field.

Two-time Queensland Champion Nathan Pronger is certainly not a driver to be taken lightly. Despite not racing as much as Shilleto or the Browns in recent seasons, Pronger has shown plenty of pace so far this season and has another Queensland Title firmly in his sights.

The likes of Cody Maroske, Brooke Wanless, Kaydon Iverson, Scott Farmer, Billy Foyle and reigning Tyrepower 600 Super Series Champion Ryan Skennar are also amongst the stateís leading contenders.

Current South Australian Champion Jack Bell heads the list of interstate threats. Bell (Vic) is to be joined by Dylan Willsher (Vic), Grant Stansfield (Vic), Brooke and Josh Buckingham (Vic), Trevor Cotterill (Vic) and Scott Siemsen (NSW).

Completing the list of entrants are the father and daughter team of Glen and Lexi Underwood, Todd Stevens, Chris Finglas, Royce Harvey, Bryn Upshall, Tristan Johnson, Adrian Farrell, Phil Roberts, 2001 Queensland Champion Alan Iverson, Adrian Josefski, Brad Metcalfe, Simon Sullivan, Jared Desmares, Matthew Fleming and Josh Pokarier.

Special thanks must go to Ian Boettcher Race Parts for coming on board as the major sponsor for the Queensland Title. The Ipswich-based company has over the past 12 months expanded into the open wheel market of speedway. To find out more about the products Ian Boettcher Race Parts have on offer, visit www.ianboettcherraceparts.com.au or call 0730 673 411.

Apart from Ian Boettcher Race Parts as the eventís major sponsor, other Queensland Title sponsors include Tyrepower, Action Formwork, Dryden Signs, KRE Race Engines, Myla Graphics, Aussie Trackwear, and Lucky Promotions.

:: Formula 500's WA- Hooper is the new Champion!

Monday, March 23, 2015
Formula 500's WA

Tom Hooper last weekend scored the biggest win of his short career as he claimed the West Australian Championship at Bunbury Speedway ahead of a quality field.

Hooper, in just his second full season of racing, started from the front row in the feature and raced away from the field to claim the win in the 57th Annual title event, defeating former champion Steven Ellement, Troy Johnson and another former title holder in Matt Brown.

The feature race of course wasnít without its drama: an eight car crash early in the race saw a couple of cars tip over and a few others eliminated before their race had really even begun.

On the restart the top three cars of Hooper, Ellement and Johnson moved away from the rest of the field, while Andrew Priolo settled back in fourth place.

The race went on, with Hooper pulling away while Matt Brown made his way into fourth, setting out after the leading trio. Hooper was well clear of second and third place when he brushed the wall, allowing Ellement and Johnson to close, putting pressure on in the final few laps.

Hooper held strong though and went on to claim his first WA State Title victory ahead of Steven Ellement and Troy Johnson.

Early in the night nine qualifying heats were held, with Tom Hooper (2), Steven Ellement, Troy Johnson (2), Trystan Caley, Andrew Priolo, Matt Brown and Adrian Haywood all sharing the wins.

Brett Janssen then went on to claim the last chance B Main, with Brent Lockwood, Brendon Marshman, Travis Bell, David Sinagra and Ryan Higgs all also transferring to the big dance.
The Formula 500ís now have a few weeks break here in Western Australia as the Australian Formula 500 Championship is held in Rockhampton, Queensland on the 3rd and 4th of April. The next Western Australian event will be at the Perth Motorplex on the 18th of April for the Grand Final event.

:: Formula 500's WA- Stacked WA Title Field!

Wednesday, March 18, 2015
Formula 500's WA

The Western Australian Formula 500 Championship is one of the longest running title events in WA. Starting in the 1957/58 season, the division was then known as TQís and the event (and the following two title events) was won by Wally Higgs.

In the 1973/74 season the title underwent a name change to Formula 500ís, with the event being won by Bill Richards, a man still competing today. Names such as John Andersson, Bill Broadwood, Phil Crofts and Bryan Mullings have figured prominently over the years in the title event and are sure to go down in history as some of the all time greats.

This weekend at QUIT Bunbury Speedway will see an opportunity for someone else to become part of Formula 500 folklore as the 57th annual running of the event takes place, and we are in for a treat with a huge field of thirty nominations.

Headlining the field are a number of former champions, one being the most experienced driver in the field, Bill Richards. As earlier stated, the elder statesman of the Formula 500ís won his first and only WA title in the 1973/74 season, some forty years ago now. Bill has alsoraced to a few other podium finishes, but will hard pressed by some other former champions determined to take the crown for themselves this time around.

Matt Brown has won the event three times, finishing on the podium four more times, so he sure knows what it takes to win the event and will be doing his best to win this weekend. Two time winner Steven Ellement is also back in the field and would love to add another WA title to his trophy cabinet, some five seasons after his last title victory. Of course other former champions including 2011/12 winner David Sinagra and 2012/13 winner Andrew Priolo will also be trying their hardest to grab another trophy and cement themselves into the titles illustrious history.

Of course, the number of former champions is heavily outweighed this weekend by another twenty five drivers who each want to etch their names onto the first place trophy for the first time this weekend. Names like Mark House, Troy Johnson, Chris Dymock, Glenn Carstairs, Tom Hooper and Adrain Haywood have all been towards the front at most shows so far this season and it all leads up to this moment, that one race meeting that they want to win more than any other. Of course a title event is more than just racing ability, it also involves an element of luck and should these drivers be given even a sniff of a win they are sure to increase their efforts 110% to grab that title.

One would be silly of course to discount any of the competitors, with other pocket rocket pilots the likes of Matt Higgs, Gavin Connelly, Thomas Davies, Jeremy Saffin and Trystan Caley just some of the other names that will be looking for a finish towards the points end.

One thing that is for certain is that each driver will be looking to gain every possible point in the heats to ensure a prominent starting position in the all important feature: once in that main event it is anyones game.

See you all trackside for what is sure to be a huge event!

:: Brisbane Formula 500 Club -Prongerís Pain is Farmerís Gain

Tuesday, March 17, 2015
Brisbane Formula 500 Club

The misfortune of Nathan Pronger last Saturday night at the Toowoomba Speedbowl played into the hands of Scott Farmer, who went on to claim his maiden Formula 500 feature race win.

In what was the 10th round of the Tyrepower 600 Series, Pronger, who was the form driver all night, was leading the 20-lap feature race comfortably up until his run was brought to a premature end on the 10th lap as a result of a mechanical issue, which was traced back to being a $2 part that had broken.

Following Prongerís exit, Farmer was then able to inherit the lead and go on to score a popular victory.

Joining a jubilant Farmer on the podium were the Brown siblings, Charlie and Kristin, in second and third place respectively. Both Charlie and Kristin chased hard after Farmer, but they were unable to catch him and had to settle for minor place finishes on the podium.

Cody Maroske finished in fourth ahead of Brooke Wanless, Tristan Johnson, Todd Stevens, Billy Foyle, Adrian Farrell, Kaydon Iverson and the final finisher Royce Harvey.

At exactly the same time as Prongerís demise, both Antony Schofield and Chris Finglas collided in turn four. Both drivers were unable to restart. The only other non-finisher was Grant Harvey.

In the heat race action, Farmer, Pronger and Kristin Brown collected wins. By virtue of a win and a second from the two heat races, Pronger was the highest point scorer heading into the feature race and therefore started from pole position.

The 11th and penultimate Tyrepower 600 Super Series round will be fought out on April 18 at Brisbaneís Archerfield Speedway. Before that, the Queensland Title (hosted by the Brisbane club) is to be held on March 28 at Archerfield Speedway.

Current Tyrepower 600 Super Series Point Standings
1: Kristin Brown - 601 points
2: Charlie Brown - 582
3: Kaydon Iverson - 562
4: Brooke Wanless - 479
5: Dale Shilleto - 452

The Brisbane Formula 500 Club would like thank Tyrepower for all of their 2014-15 season support. To find out more about Tyrepower, visit their website: www.tyrepower.com.au.
