30 fastlane QLD CHAMPS FINAL ROUND BEC With round two of the Summit Racing Queensland Championships run and won at the Palmyra Drag Racing Club recently, the final round is all that stands between the racers and their prestigious copper ANDRA Christmas Tree trophies. Hoping to continue their winning momentum in Gladstone will be Anthony Walker (Super Street), Matt Halpin (Street Bike), Earl McCallum (Super Sedan), Rodney Hansen (Supercharged Outlaws), Dale Sonogan (Modified/Top Sportsman), Tayla Kelly (Junior Dragster), Sonja Wagensveld (Street) and Laeith Skinner (Modified Bike) who all claimed victories after two intense days of racing in Mackay across June 29-30. Taking the runners-up honours were Richard Dawe (Super Street), Rachel Wilkins (Street Bike), Gavin List (Super Sedan), Randall Mohr (Supercharged Outlaws), Michael Obst (Modified/Top Sportsman), Sarah Brett (Junior Dragster), Sarah Langridge (Street) and Peter Johnson (Modified Bike). After coming home as the runner-up for round one in the Outlaws bracket, Hansen was happy to go one better at Palmyra Raceway for round two. “It was a good weekend, it is always good to turn up at a race track and see huge improvements, that is always a great thing,” said Hansen, who thanked Gilroy’s Automatics, Paigepower Race Engines and Hansen’s Automotive for their support of his racing. “We were happy with where we qualified and then went into racing and unfortunately there were a few guys with some breakages which left a few bye runs and so forth. “All in all though the car went well, and my crew Jason Page and Cory Hess did a great job – it makes my job easy when we have the car doing everything as it should. “You never expect a win – it is always a tough bracket to race in and we all have to race to the same conditions and be able to adapt to the conditions of the day. The Palmyra club and its guys and girls have got that pretty well down-pat now and they gave us a good surface to race on. They also did a great job with the BBQ for the racers on the Friday night followed by breakfast on the Saturday morning – it is great to see stuff like that which brings everyone together and adds a social aspect to the event too. “The Summit Racing Queensland Championships is a great series, we all need to get behind it and keep it moving forward and evolving so the brackets and the series can grow.” Another racer who built on their round one efforts to take victory a [\”Y]ZHX\X][[[[H^HH[Y\Z[B[\]\ۛ\]H[[][ ']\HYZ[܈\]\][
