DON’T miss out on the only chance to see so many of Australia’s very best Super Sedan drivers in action at Goulburn Speedway this season.
On Sunday night, the National Super Sedan Series (NSSS) concludes its NSW double-header weekend of racing with a first time show at the Goulburn Speedway starting at 6pm.
The only NSW rounds of the NSSS will commence at Dubbo’s Morris Park Speedway on Saturday night, January 5 and concludes at Goulburn Speedway on Sunday night January 6.
Round four of the 2012/2013 championship will see the series returning to Dubbo for the first time in three years, while Sunday night’s fixture will be the first ever NSSS stopover at Goulburn.
Following the success of the Queensland Cup events before Christmas that produced three different winners from as many races, the upcoming events are much anticipated with teams rested, recharged and ready for the challenge that awaits them.
Particularly exciting for local fans is the fact that NSW-based contracted drivers Lachlan Onley and Tony Barklimore head into their home state events on the back of some terrific form from the previous round in Kingaroy last month.
Of course, Onley won that event by the closest margin in series history and currently leads the championship, while Barklimore qualified on the front row of the grid and ultimately finished a fine fifth.
Both drivers have been instrumental in ensuring the series returns to Dubbo this season and, with their experience on the tight Goulburn circuit, they will be confident of securing strong results at both rounds.
Round three in Kingaroy produced a great return to form from two-time series winner Wayne Randall and three-time national champion Michael Nicola, both of whom finished on the podium, edged by Onley in a three-wide swoop under the chequer.
There is a bevy of drivers looking to usurp Onley from the series lead, including opening round winner Matt Pascoe and round two victor Darren Kane, both of whom are former series champions, along with defending series champion Brad Smith and another former NSSS titleholder in Michael Doblo.
Whilst Pascoe and Kane are entrenched inside the top four, neither Smith nor Doblo have featured on the podium so far this season and need a big result this weekend to advance their prospects of a second title.
Another strong group of noncontracted drivers will also be in action over the two nights of competition, with Queenslander Steve Pearce leading the charge.
Pearce was sensational in the opening three rounds. He currently sits sixth overall in the championship points and he will no doubt be a contender once again.
The likes of John Brown, Wayne Brims, Paul Kranitis and Canberra’s Nigel Skeers will also be appearing over the weekend, with additional nominations expected in the days ahead from other local racers determined to upstage the series stars.
The Goulburn Workers Club is proud sponsor of the Goulburn fixture and the NSSS show is likely to be the biggest events of the year at Goulburn Speedway, Don’t miss out on the only chance to see so many of Australia’s very best Super Sedan drivers in action in New South Wales this season.
The Goulburn program will be supported by junior sedan races and sedans combined with stockrods. Entry price is $30 for adults, with racing from 6pm.
