Speedway fans witnessed an excellent show at Manjimup Speedway’s second race meeting of its 2023-24 season on November 18 with lots of competitive racing. It attracted five divisions, each contesting three qualifying heats, except in the super mods division which had two heats per round and a final. Augusta-Margaret River Top-Star Thomas Host and Manjimup’s Lara Edwards started off the front row of each junior race ahead of seven New-Stars, which included visitors Millie Fairbrass from Margaret River, Ellie Watt from Cowaramup and Zac Favero from Pemberton against four Manji locals. Thomas was the Top-Stars winner overall with Edwards close behind. Experienced Manjimup pair Shane Whild and David Fall delivered the night’s main highlight by turning on constant exhilarating action in the street stock sedan division. It was a special treat for the fans, with both drivers winning two races against each other. Visitors Daniel Stanley, Steve Rodley and Mitchell Woods from Margaret River and Bunbury’s Clinton Waldron were in the field of seven in this division and were worth going a long way to watch, with Manjimup’s Brendan Fagan also taking part. The Super Six Association of WA drivers, including Jeff Veersma from Morley, Jason Urwin from Morowa, David Leighton from Forrestfield, Malcolm Fewster from Lower Chittering, Luke Mateljan from Banjup, Ray Winfield from Geraldton, Glenn Brown from Southern River, Graham Fewster from Bullsbrook and Steve Watson from Canning Vale, travelled far and wide to get to the Manjimup Speedway with nine starting and a couple of drivers unable to reach the final. David Leighton drove at his first race meeting, while Malcolm Fewster and Graham Fewster are both in their first season. Glenn Brown, who returned after having three years off, performed like he hadn’t lost any touch. Veersma took out the Super Six win, with Mateljan and Steven Watson following behind. Super mods was the night’s main drawcard and responded with 14 drivers showing up, including current and three-time WA No.1 Cameron Shepherd from Wembley Downs and local Grant Campbell, who won the 2020-21 State title on his home track. The division’s oldest driver was 66-year-old No.47 Wayne Bingham from South Yunderup, while at the other end of the scale, George Letchford drove at his second race meeting and impressed with his ability already. Cameron Shepherd won the super mods division, with Sean Leary from Wagin and Darrall Smith from Kondinin taking second and third place.
