Troyer cars still winning Down Under!WOW HOW GREAT IT IS TO BE YOUNG.

Seiton Young parked the N42 Troyer chassis in victory lane at the Hessions Auto Parts Grafton Speedway on Saturday night November 26th, and in doing so sent a ripple out across the v8 dirt modified land scape proving that he has what it takes to mix it with the big names of the class and that his not just racing to make up the numbers.

Since coming out of the wingless sprints,Young has come onto the v8 dirt modified seen like a duck to water and made a great start to his 2022/23 season with two podium finishers in as many starts.

Hot off his 3rd place finish in the Lord Mayors Cup at the Castrol edge Lismore Speedway back on November 5th.

Seiton came into the Grafton meeting with a great opening stand at Lismore and showed all the fans in the stands that his in it to win it every time he pulls on the helmet.

November 26th and it was the season opener for the Grafton Speedway and just like Lismore it has had to over come it’s own issues when one of the wooden light towers fell down smashing a huge hole in the catch fence and blocking the track on the front straight.

But to there credit the Corbetts got down and dirty and fixed the fence and in doing so they also put up three brand new metal LED light poles.

Wow the weather gods turned out a beautiful sunny day with a nice cool breeze blowing across the venue.

The pit gates opened at 12noon and it was a first in best dressed scenario as transporters started coming through the gates.

With big numbers across all classes racing it was going to be a tight fit but we all seemed to make it happen and it was great to see the Grafton Speedway pits full to the brim.

3:45pm and it was time for drivers briefing for the 15 v8 dirt modified drivers in attendance.

Race format would see drivers end up doing 2 heats each held over 3 rounds.
This was a great way to do the heats and spread them out giving drivers and teams plenty of time to work on there cars between racers .

All V8 Dirt Modified drivers for heat one.

We need you up to the dummy grid was the call across the pit mic and the crowd held there breath to the sweet sound of rumbling motors coming out onto the track for the first time since the end of last season.

V8 DIRT MODIFIEDS LETS DO THIS.

At the start of the feature race Seiton and Taylah gave it there all to get the all important whole shot going into turn one and it was Young who had the right foot planted hard to the floor as he flew down towards turn two leading the pack with Taylah hot on his heels.

Following Taylah was Britten, Andrew Firth and the rest of the best as they all scrambled to find a smooth line around the tight confines that is the Grafton circuit.

As soon as the race started so came on the yellow lights as Scott Quirk unfortunately got caught up in an incident. Quirk was unable to restart the race due to rear diff issues in the N73 Bicknell.

Green green green was the call across the one way at the restart and once again Seiton gave it his all as the Nev Smith Plastering yellow and purple N42 Troyer chassis screamed away from the angry pack behind him.

At the restart former 5 time Aussie champion Britten made his move passing Taylah to move into second place.
Not to be out done Taylah her self had the Q15 Bicknell on rails as she did her best to keep up with the two cars out in front.

By half race distance Seiton now had Britten hot on his rear nerf bar but as Kevin came out of the infamous turn one the right rear shock parted ways with the Q34 bringing Britten’s race to an unfortunate end and he would have to watch the rest of the event from the infield.

Back to the race and with Young flying away from the rest of them all eyes now turned to see who would finish second and third respectively.

Taylah was now in a battle with Dunn after Luke got passed Andrew and the two of them looked for the smooth fast line to get around.

With only about 4 laps remaining Dunn made a big attempt to pass Taylah coming out of turn two but to her credit Taylah didn’t give an inch and made Luke work for everything as she set her eyes on a second place finish at her home track.

By now Dunn also had to cover his own line as Andrew made up ground and with only 2 laps to go it was on like donkey kong but in the end Luke held on the pick up a very impressive third place finish.

To me drive of the night had to go to Taylah as she crossed the finish line in a very impressive second place.
To make her second place finish even more sweet this was her first podium in the open class after stepping up from the 602 Sportsman’s.

But the talk in the stands was just how good Seiton did winning the A main. In actual fact Seiton won the race by more then 12 seconds and set a fastest lap time of 15.351.

Not to be out done Brock Armstrong drove a very well calculated race himself staying out of trouble and doing so Brock pick up the win for the sportsman’s in only his second race meeting. Well done to you and your team Brock and hopefully many more to come.

The final place’s read like this.

Winner N42 Seiton Young. 2nd Q15 Taylah Firth. 3rd N83 Luke Dunn. 4th Q51 Andrew Firth. 5th N88s Brock Armstrong. 6th N53 Nathan McGregor. 7th N76 Kyle Armstrong. 8th Q69s Shane Laurie. Q34 Kevin Britten DNF. Q47s Crossley DNF. N73 Scott Quirk DNF. N27s Darryl Armfield DNF.
N77 Mick Reid DNS. And N8 Brent Hall DNS.

Until next time stay safe …
