Sapphire Speedway torn up by Legends

The Sapphire Speedway was abuzz with the roar of Legend cars on Saturday.

The feature division was a highlight of the four race card which attracted around 400 spectators. 

Hailing from Canberra, speedway president Greg Eastman said it was a growing division with a large field of 13 cars competing. 

“They are small, fast and provide some of the best side-by-side racing,” Eastman said. 

With a tight field, it was Darren Corey’s number 29 that broke through the pack and took an early lead in the first round on the night. 

Meanwhile, in the other divisions some drivers were struggling with the tight lines and a few spinouts were the order of business. 

The Aussie sixes was a wonderful spectacle for onlookers as the cars ploughed tight through the corners and threw up massive clouds of dust. 

Johnny Ralph’s VS Commodore proved tough competition on the night. 

Ralph held excellent speed through the bends, while some of  the other drivers suffered in the softer dirt on the inside and outside of the course. 

Allan Bates’ 350 Chev was unstoppable in the vintage car division.

The big blue monster rumbled around the track setting a blistering pace for other drivers to follow. 

Sarah Eastman’s Ford Laser provided entertainment in the series production with her clever cornering getting the better of her opposition. 

Thrills and minor spills were the name of the game for drivers on the night, much to the enjoyment of the large crowd. 

The speedway’s next meet will see a return of the Legend cars on February 1.
