Official release: Clay-Per-View Sprintcars Speedweek

December 15, 2022

The word ‘veteran’ wouldn’t sit well with Victorian Sprintcar icon David Murcott but there’s no denying its suitability.

The Warrnambool wheel-twister remains as popular as ever for his legion of loyal fans accrued over thirty-five years in the game with only one season off since his debut as a sixteen-year-old.

In those three decades he’s achieved a long list of accolades of course highlighted by those two incredible Australian Sprintcar Championship wins at first Latrobe in 2014 and then backing it up in Bunbury the year after.

Along the way also have been stunning successes at a wider variety of venues due to his love of travelling and racing interstate.

One of his most memorable will always be the victory at Avalon Raceway for the WSS Speedweek Series driving for Bruce Stephens.

It was collectively their first WSS success.

“It’s something I’ll always remember,” grins Murky, “for that reason Speedweek will always be special to me.”

Now in his thirty fifth season he’s also in his twentieth year with long time sponsor and friend Andrew Elder from Mainline Dynolog Dynamometers.

“Andrew started with me back in 2002-2003 when I went to America and he’s been with me ever since. He’s come along with each team I’ve driven for and I can’t thank him enough.”

There’s no doubt for “Murky” though one of his great joys is driving for Darryl and Mikey Downing and crew guy Nathan in the iconic #S97 Mainline Dynolog Dynamometers / Eagle Trailers, Campers and Caravans / Moore Mechanical Cool Chassis powered by Johnny Maiolo.

The foursome work exceptionally well together and present a major danger to victory each and every time they front – even if they’ve only had one race together this season due to a high percentage of rainouts.

Employed by SA vegetable producer Wayne “Snow” Rowett as an irrigation mechanic and farmhand near Bordertown Murcott is regarded as speedy, aggressive and always ready to rip the top by his fans and his rivals alike and he’ll present a major threat to Sprintcars Speedweek this summer.
