The open night of the 61st New Zealand Three Quarter Midgetcar Championship produced race close racing, with the 15 laps record lowered twice with eight of the nine qualify 15 lap heats going green to chequered without a yellow. The seeding for the all three groups turned out to be very even with most drivers still going into their final heat with a chance of qualify. Eighteen qualifiers have been found with the final six coming from two repercharge heats this evening.

In the Accessman Group young Liam McCoubrey (Christchurch) took of the opening heat in record time with defeating NZ champion Dylan McGregor (Auckand) lowered again by 3.5 seconds when winning the second heat of the group. McGregor then backed up by winning the final heat to top the group with 40 points, from local Jeremy Webb on 36, from Auckland’s Lawrence Baker 33 and Shane Phillips 29, former champ Glen Durie (ChCh) 28 and Gina Harris (Auckland) 24 all making the cut. McCoubrey was unlucky to drop a chain in his last heat when looking set to qualify.

Christchurch’s Gareth Bindon took of the Springston Hotel Group winning two of three heats with the other win going to Ryan Barry (Auck), with Bindon topping the group with 37 points, two clear of Barry with Napier Craig Todd on 34. Current NZ #2 Paul LeCren (Auck) was next on 32, followed by Scott Baker (Auck) and current NZ GP holder, Matt Leversedge (ChCh) on 27.

Auckland’s Jared Taylor took out the Champion Freight Group also claiming two heat wins to finish on 38 points four clear of Duane Todd(Napier) with Sam Neil (ChCh) on 31. Ryan Baker (Auck) also claimed a heat win to qualify with 30, with Auckland’s Thomas McLean on 28 and Danny Keene on 28.

Local driver, Nick Donaldson won an incident packed New Zealand Midgetcar Grand Prix at Elf Lubricants Ruapuna Speedway on Saturday evening, with the win completing a remarkable comeback for Donaldson after he totally destroyed his car in a spectacular crash on the same track in November.

“Yes this has made our season after wrecking the car earlier. I felt we had the set up to make our mark late in the race and thankfully everything went to plan”, said a beaming Donaldson after the 30 lap GP final. The win ended the recent dominance of Auckland drivers that have won the GP title.

Dave Kerr the current South Island champion was the top points scorer after the three heats of the Russell Lilley Builders sponsored event, after winning the opening heat in record time to start on the front row of the GP with other local drivers, Glenn Everett and Glen Durie also claiming heat wins.

Auckland’s Brock Mascovich, who recently finish third in the World 50 Lap Classic looked set to finish among the top points scorer after finishing in second place in the first two heats but then crashed out of the final heat when and chasing down the leaders when an axle on Graham Sharpe’s car snapped coming out of the Prison bend and with Mascovich’s having no chance to avoid Sharp the Aucklander’s car rolled causing minor damage which his crew repaired in time for Mascovich to start the GP from grid 8.

Kerr quickly lead the GP and was lapping cars by the eighth lap from Ben Drummond (Auckland) and Dunedin’s Gavin Wilkie who was locked in a great dice with Mascovich finally claiming third place in lap 12. In a dramatic few seconds on next laps Mascovich inherited the lead as first Drummond car slowed and then Kerr rolled on the Town bend, Kerr restarted but at the back of the field.

Mascovich lead from Wilkie and Donaldson who moved in to second place the next lap with the raced running under caution again when Auckland’s Jared Taylor rolled on the Town bend. On the restart Donaldson started to press for the lead and finally managed to hit the front with ten lap to run. A lap later Wilkie was forced to retire after involved with a tangle with Nelson’s James Nicholson, with left Tom Lumsden in third place from Kerr.

On the closing laps Donaldson opened up a lead of over two second from Mascovich with Lumsden having to fight off a determined late challenge from Kerr who was followed home by Brian Barclay and Steve McCallum.

In other racing John Warwood and Laurie McMahon made it a clean sweep on their sidecar. Jeremy Webb was the pick on the TQ drivers with two wins with both Melanie Smith and Kimberley Yeatman also impressing. Josh Walls took out the Modified Sprint Feature along with a head win with honours shared in the Six Shooter class with Brad Clive ending Montana Jamieson run of Feature wins in the ¼ Midget section.

Jamie ‘The Duffman” Duff was in a class of his own when he dominated Round 5 of the General Tyre War of the Wings Sprintcar Series at Ruapuna Speedway on Saturday evening. The 23 year old local totally dominated the 25 lap Feature lapping 12 of his fifteen rivals and was a massive 10 seconds ahead of second placed Jason Scott (Queenstown) with Nelson’s Chris Gerard third, nearly a lap behind Duff.

Two weeks ago in Auckland Duff finished second behind American ace Donny Schatz and ahead of USA legend Sammy Swindell in the Sprintcar World Series and on current form will fancy his chances of a top three placing in the New Zealand Championship which will be raced in Cromwell early in the New Year, before the Sprintcar Summer Slam is contested at Ruapuna on the 17 and 18 January..

In Saturday night Duff was a cut above the rest of the field setting the fastest time of the evening at 13.1666 seconds on his way of winning the second heat of the night which included a breath taking inside pass on Ray Baughan on the Town bend to take the lead in the race which has started in spectacular fashion when Matt Honeywell rode a wheel when the green flag dropped sending Honeywell’s machine on a wild roll onto the infield.

Duff had to work a little harder for his win in the third head as he carved his way from near the back of the field has he rolled of another series on mid 13 seconds laps has he worked his way in to second place and then dived inside race leader Scott as the two cars raced side by side into the Prison bend, Scott held on to second place with Honeywell coming home in third place.

Starting from the front row along side Scott Duff quickly took the lead in the Feature and was lapping cars by the fifth laps with interest then focusing on the minor placings with Gerard, who won the opening heat, holding out Scott for second place until the seventh lap, with Brent Gaudion finishing fourth overall from Greg Clemence and Daniel Anderson with former Black Cap, Nathan Astle in seventh place.

On other racing Nick Donaldson made a welcome return to the Midgetcar rank after a spectacular crash earlier in the season claiming a win and a third during the heats before claiming the Feature win from Glenn Everett and Dunedin’s Gavin Wilkie.

Young Gun Liam McCoubrey had his best meeting since moving from the ¼ Midget class to the TQ class this season with his first Feature win as well as a win and a third in the heats. The bulk of the TQ drivers were away contesting the South Island title at Nelson which saw Jeremy Webb claim his third back to back title from Ben Gilmore and Kyle Glover.

Josh Walls took out the Modified Sprint Feature race from Jimmy Doyle with both drivers claiming a heat win. Visiting drivers Sam O’Callaghan and Matthew Anderson were the pick of the Six Shooter drivers with O’Callaghan taking out the Feature from Kris Jemmett and Anderson with the latter claiming a win and a third in the heats. Montana Jamieson continue her winning way in the ¼ Midget class with the eleven year old winning her fourth straight Feature win to back up a win and a third in the heats.

Matt Leversedge took out the inaugural staging of the Ryan Stone Tribute Three Quarter Midget race at Elf Lubricants Ruapuna Speedway on Saturday evening, from Jeremy Webb and Scott Bailey.

Ryan Stone was one of Christchurch’s top drivers in recent years, winning several South Island championships and lost his battle with cancer late last year with the Tribute race raced over the unique distant of 17 laps with 17 cars starting the race - 17 was Stone’s race car number with the race lead out by Geoff Stone, Ryan’s father driving Ryan’s former car.

Leversedge’s win came on the back of winning one of the qualifying heats and finishing seventh in another, with other heat winners Kyle Glover, Gaerth Bindon and Kevin Clive, with all the heats closely contested. Leversedge had to start near the back of the Feature race which saw Marcus Doocey lead for the opening laps before being passed by Charles Gardiner who lead up to the sixth lap.

Lindsay Bailey then took the lead as Leversedge had worked his way up to fourth position. By lap seven Leversedge was on second place and on the next lap took the lead when passing Bailey on the Prison Bend. Leversedge then opened up a handy lead with Webb passing Bailey on the closing laps to claim second lap with Gardiner finishing in fourth place from Brian Fridd and Michael Moulin.

Kieran Harris stepped into his old car, now owned by Allan Daly, to make it a clean sweep in the Modified Sprint class with Ben Gilmore and Josh Walls providing Harris with his main opposition. Glenn Everett continued his good start to the season in the Midget class with a second behind Dunedin’s Gavin Wilkie in the open heat before then winning the next heat and then Feature race.

The Six Shooter class was evenly contested with three difference winners, Kris Jemmett, and Grant Harkness each winning a heat with Matt Doncliff winning the Feature from Ben Smit and Shaun Ashton.

In the development classes Shian Robb was the pick of the drivers in the Youth Ministocks with Montana Jamieson dominating in the ¼ Midget class.

The winner of the Midget car feature went to the southern man Gavin Wilkie
The opening round of the Barry Butterworth Trophy Midget Series at Elf Ruapuna Speedway on Saturday evening produced close fast racing with one of the favourites for the series ‘Quick’ Nick Donaldson involved a in spectacular roll which saw is car climb 10 metres in the air.

The incident happened early in the third heat when Donaldson was closing in on race leader Glenn Everett when the two cars raced around the Prison bend on the fourth lap. Donaldson’s then ‘bicycled’ on the right hand side before rearing and then flipping violently several times at height before coming back rest on the track. Donaldson climbed from his badly damaged car and was helped into the track side ambulance and after the meeting was taken to hospital for observation.

Earlier in the meeting Donaldson was untroubled to take out the opening two heat with ease, leading both from start to finish and only a faulty timing transponder in Donaldson’s car denied him a new 15 lap record. Donaldson’s was a clear winner from Everett with Tom Lumsden third from David Kerr, with the latter debuting his new Aggressor car. This was the only race that Kerr, the current South Island champion, finished as his car suffered from minor issues.

The second heat saw Dunedin's Gavin Wilkie follow Donald son home with Everett third from Scott Millar. Everett won the re-run in heat three from Wilkie and Millar. Wilkie dominated the Feature holding on to an early lead with Graham Sharp in second place from Lumsden.

Racing was close again in the Three Quarter Midget class with three different winners with Kevin Clive and Daniel McKinlay each winning a heat with Jeremy Webb winning the Feature from Gareth Bindon and the fast finishing Matt Leversedge.

Visiting driver’s come out on top of the Modified Sprint and Six Shooters racing with Glenn Finlay of Invercargill winning a heat and then backing up by taking Feature in his Modified Sprint with Dunedin’s Matt Anderson winning all three Six Shooter races.

Shian Robb was the pick of the Youth Mini Stock drivers starting the night with the second place in the opening heat before winning the next heat and the Feature. Montana Jamieson win all three Quarter Midget races with Hunter Rowlands also having a good meeting in the development class with two seconds and a third, with Clint Warwood and passenger Paul Auton unbeaten in the sidecar section.
