One of the biggest speedway crowds for some years turned up at Mildura’s Olympic Park speedway track on Sunday night to see World Champion speedway rider Jason Doyle win each of his four races for the night, including clocking the fastest race time.
Jason Doyle got a maximum score of 12 points during the heats but pulled out of final due to being unwell. He had the fastest time of night.
On Saturday night at Gilman speedway in Adelaide he scored 11 points but withdrew from the final.
The Gilman final saw victory go to Tungate, ahead of Morris which was the same result as at Mildura’s Olympic Park on Sunday night.
Tungate, Doyle and Morris all beat Mildura’s own Justin Sedgmen, who finished the night with four second placings to finish with eight points.
In the Mildura final Sedgmen did not finish with Cooper Riordan taking third behind Tungate and Morris with former Australian junior champion Mathew Gilmore in fourth placing.
In the Gates Sidecar Cup final the Broken Hill combination of Rick Howse and Adam Commons won the start but halfway through the first lap the South Australian brother and sister combination of Arron and Teagan Hartwig dived through the inside and then took the race line higher on the track to keep a slight lead over Howse and Commons from Broken Hill
The fourth spot in the final went to local combination Warren Monson and Andrew Summerhayes, who got their bike on the track for the final but when it was time to line-up their sidecar had a terminal failure.
