STATUS QUO FOR McCOSKER SUPER SEDAN SERIES ROUND TEN, FEBRUARY 27

THE RACE format for round ten of the McCosker Super Sedan Series remains the same for the second attempt to run the fixture Saturday night, February 27 at Castrol Edge Lismore Speedway.

The meeting was originally set to be decided the previous weekend (February 20) however several days of heavy rain forced a postponement of the fixture for one week.

Drivers will contest two heat rounds. There will be a total of six heats, each over an eight lap distance, followed by a pole shoot-out. The top eight qualifiers on points from the heats will run against the clock to determine their starting positions in the 30-lap feature, while the remaining qualifiers will be locked into the field for the main event.

“The format gives every driver a chance of securing a favourable position for the main event and it should produce some strong competition in the earlier heats,” promoter David Lander said.

Super Sedan Association race officials have received twenty-one nominations for the round, presented by TMS Quality Sportswear.

All the heavy hitters will be back to chase points in the series which has five rounds remaining following this Saturday night's event.

Tournament leader Sean Black commands a 191-point advantage but he will need to bring his A-game to the table when he squares off against the likes of Darren Kane (currently second in point standings), Wayne Randall, Matt Pascoe and Victorian star Mick Nicola (placed fourth on points).

The night will be a very special occasion for Ian Brims, who after this meeting, will hang up the helmet following over three decades of top shelf racing in which he has achieved national and state title honours in different sedan divisions. His retirement will be acknowledged with a tribute to Ian's long career conducted during the meeting.

The night also is a milestone for Wayne Randall who is competing in his fiftieth consecutive season after he started his career at the Lismore Showground Speedway in 1971.

RSA Street Stocks will contest round four of the Northern Rivers Rumble, featuring a 20-lap main event, with upward of 20 nominations anticipated. Current point leader Luke Gray will be looking to continue his winning run in the series.

Wingless Sprintcars, Production Sedans, Junior Sedans and Four Cylinder Sedans also will be on the support card to the Super Sedans in a big variety programme.

Gates open at 4PM and racing commences at 5:15PM.
