Michael Hall is part of the large MX5 Contingent for the AASA NSW state Championsips
A mega field of cars are entered for this weekend’s inaugural AASA NSW State Championship event at Wakefield Park.
This weekend is the first NSW state-level event sanctioned by the AASA, and offers competitors the benefits of extremely generous track time for a very reasonable cost. Each category will hold a total of six races, over six or eight laps. The state champion for each category will be the driver who scores the most points over those six races.
Formula Vee should be ultra competitive, with Dylan Thomas, Morgan Freemantle and Dean Cavanagh likely to fight it out at the front of the field. There is also a healthy field of Super TT cars, including the HSVs of Bob Brewer and Daniel Flanagan and the Nissans of Ross Wood and Adam Burgess.
Mazda MX5s are back on the program as well, with regular front-runners David Raddatz, Nick Cancian and Lou Iezzi all entered for the meeting.
The quality of the HQ Holden field is boosted by the inclusion of Greg King, one of Australia’s top HQ Holden racers, while Doug Moss has entered the Improved Production category in one of Australia’s fastest Datsun 120Ys.
The Miniature Race Cars include a mixture of Future Racers (Nathan Jess, Robert Free, Chad Cotton, Mick Rawlings, Scott Molloy and Scott McArthur) as well as Aussie Racing Cars (Mark Duckworth, Bruce Duckworth and Jase Collins).
The class with the biggest field is Superkarts, with a total of 25 entries. Peter Bryant, Sam Zavaglia and Jeff Reed should be among the front-runners in the outright class, while Alan Dodge, Wayne Horsewell and Mark Robin are the regular contenders in the non-gearbox kart class.
