:: Formula 500's WA - Priolo grabs another!

Tuesday, April 15, 2014
Formula 500's WA

Last Saturday night at the Perth Motorplex Andrew Priolo claimed yet another win for the season, making it his second for the season at the Perth Motorplex and his seventh podium finish out of eleven races; in the process extending his points lead in the Perth Motorplex Track Championship.

Priolo won his opening heat and came fourth in the other before claiming the win in the feature by 2.314 seconds. He was followed home by Craig Bottrell who was guest driving the #99 machine instead of his regular #15, and had a good night after claiming a win and a third place in his heats.

Third place in the feature went to Brendon Condren who did a great job after winning a heat and finishing sixth in the other to then drive a consistent race and bring it home in third, with the results being both Condren and Bottrell's first podium result at the Perth Motorplex this season, a just reward after all the effort they have put in this year.

Thomas Davies came home fourth in the feature which will help his Championship points, while he was followed home by Matt Higgs in a credible fifth place. Luke Nardini, Brock Nanovich, Jason Priolo, Bronwyn Channing and Adrian Fogliani rounded out the top ten finishers.

Troy Johnson, who was holding down second place in the championship before last weekends round, was unable to make the show after engine dramas, meaning that he has been overtaken in the overall standings.

The Formulas will hit the Perth Motorplex this weekend for the final two nights of action for the season. Saturday night will be the General Firecracker night while Sunday will be the Grand Finale, so stay tuned for all the latest details!

:: Formula 500's WA -The Flying Formulas return!

Wednesday, April 09, 2014
Formula 500's WA

After three weeks off, the WA Formula 500 brigade is returning to action for the third last official night of action of the season this weekend at the Perth Motorplex.

With the huge Australian title weekend now behind them and the Bunny Burrowes and WA Title events also complete, the race is now on to see who will win the final points scores. A solid twenty four car field has nominated, including the top eleven drivers in the Perth Motorplex Track Championship.

Less than 200 points separate the top seven drivers in the Track Championship and with 300 points on offer for each of the final three rounds, it's still anyone's game for all seven of these drivers should a bit of luck go their way.

At this point it is Andrew Priolo's Championship to lose as he currently leads second placed Troy Johnson by sixty three points. Priolo has been in good form, with a podium finish in the title before winning the Bunny Burrowes races. Johnson has also shown a lot of speed but in the big events hasn't quite performed to his own lofty standards. Both will be looking to garner a good finish this weekend, with Priolo hoping to increase his lead.

That being said, a DNF is worth 237 points, so should Johnson win and Priolo not finish, there could be a lead change in the Championship. In fact, it was only a few rounds ago that Johnson held the lead after Thomas Davies, who at that point was leading, had a DNF, launching Johnson into the lead. Of course Johnson then also had a DNF, leaving Priolo in the lead and showing that anything can change in an instant.

All three of those drivers are nominated for the weekend, as are their fellow competitors in with a chance in the top seven including Jason Priolo, Matt Higgs, Brock Nanovich and Glenn Carstairs.

Also in the field are a number of drivers who have proven they are capable of winning or others who are looking for redemption after recent weeks performances. These drivers include the always fast Chris Dymock and Steven Gay, the consistent Chanelle Condren and Bronwyn Channing and of course the quick but unlucky Craig Bottrell.

It's going to be a humdinger of an event and with the chances to see the pocket rockets in action this season dwindling, you'd be best off getting your backside trackside to the Perth Motorplex this weekend!

:: Brisbane Formula 500 - Brown Doubles Up

Tuesday, April 08, 2014
Redline Media

For only the second occasion in the 2013-14 season, the Tyrepower 600 Series (Formula 500s) has produced multiple round winners, and that honour was achieved in last Saturday night’s eighth round at Kingaroy Speedway by Charlie Brown.

After emerging triumphant in the second round of the Tyrepower 600 Series at Archerfield Speedway earlier in the season, Brown, who had started from position two in the field, joined current series leader Ryan Skennar as multiple round winners. Brown managed to outpace pole sitter Skennar in second and Kaydon Iverson in third at the fall of the chequered flag for the 12-lap feature race. Skennar and Iverson did their best to challenge Brown, but they were unable to do so, and they were then left to fight it out for the minor places on the podium as Brown dominated proceedings from beginning to end.

Finishing just off the podium in fourth was Charlie Brown’s sister, Kristin Brown. Behind Brown in fourth came Ross McAteer, Brenton Finney, Scott Farmer, Bryn Upshall, Adrian Farrell and the final finisher Royce Harvey.

The only non-finisher of the feature race was series front runner Cody Maroske. The former Australian Junior Sedan Champion, who was making his second appearance aboard the Qld # 4 Dale Shilleto-owned car, was disqualified for hitting the restart cone on lap seven while running in second behind Charlie Brown.

Gary Edwards was unable to start to the feature race due to problems in his heat races earlier in the night.

In the heat races, the winners were Charlie Brown (x 2) and Maroske. Despite not recording heat-race wins, Skennar, Iverson and Upshall performed strongly.

The ninth round of the Tyrepower 600 Series will be held at Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night, April 19.

Current Tyrepower 600 Series Point Standings (after eight completed rounds)
1: Ryan Skennar – 527 points
2: Cody Maroske - 500
3: Kristin Brown - 475
4: Charlie Brown - 430
5: Bryn Upshall - 189

:: Brisbane Formula 500 Club -Pronger Power

Tuesday, March 25, 2014
Brisbane Formula 500 Club

Nathan Pronger made one of his rare Tyrepower 600 Series appearances at Archerfield Speedway last Saturday night, and managed to come away with a commanding feature-race victory.

The current Queensland, South Australian and NSW Champion started the feature race from pole position by virtue of finishing inside the top three of all of his heat races earlier in the night. From the drop of the green flag, he power to the front and then pace the field for the entire 15-lap distance. At the fall of the chequered flag, he scored a comfortable victory over Charlie Brown and Cody Maroske in second and third place respectively.

After a premature exit to the previous round due to mechanical woes, Brown bounced back to form to finish in second on the podium; while Maroske, guest driving in the Qld # 4 Edge Chassis of Dale Shilletto’s, completed a strong night with the final podium spot.

In what was a massive comeback, early season pacesetter Ryan Skennar finished just off the podium in fourth. Skennar and his team had to work hard to get back out on the track for the feature race after crashing heavily with Brooke Wanless while they battled for position. Unfortunately, Wanless, who had recently celebrated her 21st birthday, was unable to return due to the significant damage to her car in the crash.

North Queensland-based youngster Billy Foyle finished in a strong fifth ahead of two-time Australian Champion Mick Pronger, John Tunney, Bryn Upshall, Brenton Finney, Royce Harvey and the final finisher Grant Harvey.

Nick Potts was the feature race’s only non-finisher.

In the heat race action, the opening heat race was won by Skennar ahead of Nathan Pronger and Charlie Brown, the second heat race went the way of Nathan Pronger who downed Charlie Brown and Kristin Brown, and Maroske picked up the win in the third and final heat race by defeating Nathan Pronger and Charlie Brown.

Apart from Wanless being unable to start the feature race, Kristin Brown, who was the Tyrepower 600 Series point standings leader heading into the round, suffered mechanical woes that brought her night to a premature end.

The eighth round of the Tyrepower 600 Series will be held at Kingaroy Speedway on Saturday night, April 5.

Current Tyrepower 600 Series Point Standings (after seven completed rounds)
1: Ryan Skennar – 448
2: Cody Maroske - 447
3: Kristin Brown - 429
4: Charlie Brown - 343
5: Dan Scougall - 177
