Victorian Formula 500 Assn

:: Brisbane Formula 500 Club -Brown Scores Second Win

Tuesday, April 21, 2015
Brisbane Formula 500 Club

The battle between the Brown siblings, Kristin and Charlie, for the Tyrepower 600 Super Series intensified in last Saturday night’s 11th and penultimate round at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway, after Charlie Brown claimed his second win of the 2014-15 season.

Following Charlie’s win and Kristin’s non-finish on the weekend, the Tyrepower 600 Super Series point standings battle has become closer, with Kristin continuing to hold down a narrow lead ahead of Charlie and current Queensland Champion Kaydon Iverson.

Charlie Brown’s win came after he had started the 12-lap feature race from pole position after the top-six point scorers from the heat races were inverted, and it was Brown who started from pole position. Making the most of the lucky break, Brown powered to the lead from the outset and was never headed through to the fall of the chequered flag.

After starting from position three in the field and then being sent to the rear of the infield due to an opening lap incident, the previous round winner Scott Farmer was able to come back through the field and finish in second. In what was a season-best performance, Bryn Upshall completed the podium finishers in third. Brooke Wanless, highest point scorer Iverson, rookie Ryan McNamara and Adrian Farrell completed the finishers. It was an unlucky run for Iverson, who had moved up to third early on before spinning out. He was able to recover after being sent rear of field for the restart and came home in fifth.

Royce Harvey, Grant Harvey, current Australia # 3 Billy Foyle and Kristin Brown were the non-finishers in the feature race. Both Foyle and Brown went out in spectacular fashion after being involved in separate incidents on the opening lap. Brown was forced to take evasive action in order to avoid contact with another competitor; however, she was hit from behind by an innocent Wanless. As a result of this collision, Brown suffered damage to her engine and was unable to restart. In the other incident, Foyle tipped onto his side after contact with Farmer and had sustained a significant amount of damage that forced him out.

Teenager Tristan Johnson was unable to take his place in the feature race due to crashing out of one of his heat races after collecting a spinning car. This accident brought his night to a premature end after his car sustained a large amount of damage.

In the heat-race action, the wins were shared between Foyle, Upshall and Charlie Brown. Despite not winning any of their heat races, Iverson and Kristin Brown were joint highest point scorers heading into the feature race. The highest point scorer status was decided by who had recorded the fastest lap between the two in their heat races, and it was Iverson who had done so.

The 12th and final Tyrepower 600 Super Series round will be fought out on May 2 at Archerfield Speedway.

Current Tyrepower 600 Super Series Point Standings
1: Kristin Brown – 660 points
2: Charlie Brown - 651
3: Kaydon Iverson - 637
4: Brooke Wanless - 541
5: Scott Farmer - 471

:: Formula 500's WA- Hooper Again!

Sunday, April 19, 2015
Formula 500's WA

Tom Hooper has continued his dominance of recent weeks, adding another feature win and the Perth Motorplex Track Championship to his resume after his recent WA Title win.
Hooper was dominant in the feature, leading every lap of the fifteen lap affair in front of a good crowd for the Perth Motorplex Grand Finale Gold Cup event. Hooper eventually went on and crossed the line just 0.545 seconds ahead of second placed Luke Nardini, rounding out a solid season for the Narrogin local. Mark House also continued his good run, recording another podium finish, his third for the season at the Motorplex.
The opening heat of the night was also an all the way win to Hooper, defeating Troy Johnson by 2.3 seconds, with Shane Andersson in third.
Heat two was a big win to Mark House, leading the whole race and crossing the line over four seconds ahead of Hooper, with Brock Nanovich. The final heat race was another all the way win, this time to Glenn Carstairs crossing the line 1.632 seconds ahead of Luke Nardini and Chris Dymock.
Courtesy of his feature race win and consistency throughout the season, Tom Hooper also has won the Perth Motorplex Track Championship, defeating second placed Troy Johnson by twenty nine points. Luke Nardiniwas further back in third while Chris Dymock and Jamie Nardini rounded out the top five.
That brings the official summer season of Formula 500’s to a close, but never fear, the pocket rockets will be back in action on ANZAC Day at Narrogin Speedway for the Bunny Burrowes Memorial, so make sure you head down to see what is sure to be a huge show!

:: Formula 500's WA- Bunny Burrowes Field Grows!

Wednesday, April 15, 2015
Perth TQ Car Club

The Bunny Burrowes Memorial is quite simply one of the most prestigious events on the WA Formula 500 calendar.
Saturday the 25th of April, 2015 will be the 33rd annual running of the event, with twenty one cars nominated so far, and organizers hopeful of a few more cars joining in the coming days.
At this stage the defending champion Andrew Priolo isn’t nominated, with Thomas Davies, Steven Ellement and Bill Richards the only three drivers in the field so far who have previously won the event.
Only time will tell who will claim the 2015 version of the blue ribbon event, but Formula drivers, make sure you are nominated to be in with a chance!
This year’s event sees a massive $10,000 prize pool, with no less $5000 going to the winner! This is a huge prize pool no matter which way you look at it and we would love to entice a few more drivers to come down to have a run.
Racing will start at 1pm, with drivers required to be in the pits by 10.30am. The format will see drivers competing in three heats each, followed by a B main. The top four of that race will transfer to back of the top sixteen point scorers for a twenty car field in the all-important final event.
Nominations for this prestigious event are still open until SUNDAY, so if you would like to nominate, please contact Hanna Collis on either 0421 231 283 or at perthtqcarclub1@bigpond.com.
It is going to be a huge show once more and we hope to have you all with us to celebrate at Narrogin Speedway on ANZAC Day!

:: Formula 500's WA- Season Coming to a Close!

Wednesday, April 15, 2015
Formula 500's WA

For the first time since the WA State Title last month, the Formula 500’s will hit the track this weekend in what will be the final event of the summer season.
Before the winter season kicks in with PTQCC events, including the annual and prestigious Bunny Burrowes Memorial, there is business to attend to with the final event of the season.
The event, held at the Perth Motorplex, will be the Gold Cup Grand Finale and it will also double as the final round of the season long, ten round Perth Motorplex Track Championship.
Coming into the weekend it is new West Australian Champion Tom Hooper who is in the box seat to make the 2014/15 season his best ever as he leads the points by twenty markers over second placed Troy Johnson. The two have gone at it tooth and nails all season and we are sure to have a thrilling finish this Saturday night.
Third place in the championship, Adrian Haywood, will unfortunately drop down the point standings as he is not able to contest the final round, but fortunately for his nearest rivals in Luke Nardini, Chris Dymock and Jamie Nardini it paves the way for them to finish higher in the points.
Mathematically speaking any of the top ten could win, but this relies on most competitors not showing up, and looking at the nomination list of twenty cars, that shouldn’t happen, so Hooper and Johnson will fight it out, with Luke Nardini looking to consolidate third place. All will be looking for a strong run in the feature race, with 300 points on offer for the win.
Drivers the ilk of Mark House, Andrew Priolo and Steven Ellement, while not in the Championship race, are all experienced competitors at the Motorplex and know what it takes to win. They will be pulling out all stops to rain on the championship parade and it would be no surprise to see any of them finishing on the top step of the podium.
Gavin Connelly, David Sinagra and Jeff Ross all practiced on Wednesday night and looked very quick, so they will be hoping to use the knowledge gained from the extra laps and apply it to their racing this Saturday night, while others such as Jeremy Saffin, Cameron McKenzie and Kieran Chapman have been consistently quick at each meeting they contested, so they too will be looking to throw a spanner in the works.
This is the last summer meeting for the Formula’s before a big winter season kicks off, so make sure you are at the Perth Motorplex this weekend for what is sure to be yet another great show from the pocket rockets!

:: Vict Formula 500 Jettco Simpson round Run and Won!

Monday, April 13, 2015
Victorian Formula 500 Assn

Jettco Series Rd 2 - Simpson 11 April 2015
Tyler Owen won from Azza in second and Chris Bellman ran third.
It was an action packed race on a rocket fast surface, Jack Bell was walking away at every start only to toss a chain off with 4 to go, Terry Rankin had been fast all night and was all over second and third when he broke a throttle cable early on too.

Earlier in the night Terry Rankin smashed the 10 lap record, only for Jack Bell to go out and smash it again! it was pretty quick!

Thanks to all the competitors for coming out and supporting the race, especially those that traveled, Lee Hardess for instance is nearly 6 hours from home when he comes to Simpson, that's a pretty decent effort and much appreciated.

Thanks to Simpson for running really a slick show (as always down there) and to Chris and Maria for towing the 500 trailer down, all the 500 officials and Dalts from DK Race parts for helping me sort the the infield for time trials.

Next round is at Darlington in a few weeks, we're flying solo with Chris and Maria unable to attend.....the pressure will be on!

:: Victorian Formula 500 National Title Summary

Friday, April 10, 2015
Victorian Formula 500 Assn

Well, it was the weekend that was. 11 Victorian drivers - Ben McLeod, Brooke Buckingham, Chris Bellman, Dale Sinclair, Dylan Willsher, Jack Bell, Jesse Ellston, Josh Buckingham, Leigh VanGinneken, Steven Horton, Trevor Cotterill - crews, family, cheer squads and the like ventured to Rockhampton Speedway (some 2,000 klms) last weekend for the 2015 Australian Formula 500 Title.
With a total field of 46 nominations we had our work cut out for us. But doing what we do well, it was a Victorian who showed the way. 9 of the 11 cars made it into the A Main and lo and behold our V27 Dylan Willsher took out the title, with V91 Steven Horton in 2nd place and V31 Chris Bellman in 5th.
So congratulations to Dylan, Steven, Chris and all our drivers for a magnificent effort.
Dylan also won $1,000 for the fastest lap time in the 2nd round of heats. (If you weren't already a legend Dylan, you most definitely are now).
The Victorians did us proud. Am I bragging. Hell yer, why not. It is a massive achievement for ALL who made the journey.
The Victorian Formula 500 Association would like to thank the Curtis Coast Formula 500 club, Don & Julie McLeod from Rocky Resort for the great hospitality, and all the many officials for their hard work. ... Read

:: Foyle Podiums at Australian Formula 500 Title

Friday, April 10, 2015
Foyle (Cairns, Qld) media release

To say that Billy Foyle was impressive on his way to achieving a podium finish in last weekend’s Australian Formula 500 Title at Rockhampton Speedway would be a large understatement.

With less than 20 race meetings under his belt in a Formula 500, Foyle, a former Go Karter on the tar circuits, managed to qualify third and then finish there in the Australian Title deciding feature race.

For the 17-year-old Foyle, he was thrilled to come away from the country’s biggest Formula 500 event with a podium finish.

“To be honest, if someone had said to me at the beginning of the weekend I was going to finish on the podium in the Australian Title, I would’ve said they were crazy,” commented Foyle, who last season (his debut season) was the Formula 500 track champion for both Cairns Speedway and Mareeba Speedway, as well as the combined champion for both tracks.

“I was quick from the beginning of the weekend in practice and was able to build on that, and by the time the feature race came around I was confident of being able to hold my own, so to come away with away with a podium finish was such an amazing achievement.”

Foyle said that switching to a new D1 chassis from Driven Performance (USA) late last year has seen improved results.

“Towards the end of last year, I moved into a D1, and straight away I was on the pace,” Foyle said, who in his opening two race meetings – Cairns Speedway and Archerfield Speedway – he had scored feature-race wins aboard his new car.

“We have had a good run in the D1, but we have faced some hurdles with it as we try and get a better handle of the car for the different track conditions – which will come with more track time.

“The turning point for the team with the car came at the Queensland Title a few weeks ago when I achieved a top-five finish, and that lifted my confidence heading into the Australian Title.”

In terms of the future, Foyle plans to race the remainder of the 2014-15 season at Archerfield Speedway. From there, he will compete at Cairns Speedway during the off season and then hopefully contest the entire Tyrepower 600 Super Series, as well as the Victorian Speedweek Series, in the 2015-16 season.

Foyle’s next appearance will be on the Saturday night of April 18 at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway for the penultimate round of the Tyrepower 600 Super Series.

Foyle would like to thank Reedman Industries in Cairns, Tony Van Ginneken from Dutchman Performance and Peter Lack from GW Racing (Bilstein Shocks and American Racing Tires), for their 2014-15 season support.

To find out more about Foyle, check him out on Facebook by searching Foyle Motorsport.
