Col Grist Memorial to Stansfield

It was Warrnambool’s Grant Stansfield who secured the win in the Col Grist Memorial at Mortlake’s Mid-Western Speedway last Saturday when he led home Neville Gange and Andrew Howard.

 

In the first heat of the night saw Howard the victor when he led home Stansfield and Troy Gleeson. Jason Kavanagh capitalised on his pole starting position to secure the win in the second heat ahead of Adrian Rieck and Peter Duynhoven.

 

Heat three saw McKenzie take the early lead before Gange was able to move his way forward and greeting the checker ahead of McKenzie and Kavanagh. The fourth heat saw the cars of Stansfield and Gleeson lead into the first corner, where the car of Gleeson clipped the rear of Stansfield resulting in Gleeson rolling over. Stansfield went on to take the win ahead of Gange and McKenzie.

The line-up for the Col Grist Memorial saw Gange and Stansfield making up the front row, they were followed by Kavanagh, Rieck, McKenzie, Howard, Duynhoven, Gleeson, Alex Bath and Rod Smith.

 

It was Gange who made the most of his starting position and was able to hold out Stansfield to take the lead, they were followed by Kavanagh, Rieck and Howard. The race came to a caution the following lap when the car of Duynhoven became stricken on the track after being unable to avoid a fellow competitor who had become sideways.

 

At the restart Gange led away from Stansfield, Kavanagh, Rieck and Howard. The cars of Kavanagh, Rieck and Howard put on some tight racing with Howard moving into third position. With Stansfield in hot pursuit it was Gange who held the lead before washing high and clipping the fence under the judges box in lap seven allowing Stanfield into first position.  With a stoppage in lap thirteen it was a two lap dash for home with Stansfield greeting the checker ahead of Gange with Howard in third followed by McKenzie, Kavanagh, Rieck, Bath, Gleeson, Smith and Duynhoven.

The Next meeting for Super Rods will see them travel to Horsham’s Blue Ribbon Raceway on Saturday 5th of May for the running of the 2018 Victorian Super Rod Title.
