With a brand new Ford Fiesta up for grabs the Avalon Raceway Sprintcar track championship is starting to heat up with two rounds of the Essendon Ford Sprintcar premiership now complete. Following a fourth place finish last Sunday night in the Gold Cup, Albury’s Grant Anderson has leapt into the lead ahead of feature winner Darren Mollenoyux and Stephen Bell.
Boxing Day 2010 will go down as a memorable one for Warrnambool’s Darren Mollenoyux as he was victorious in round 6 of the Eureka Garages and Sheds Sprintcar Series and the Gold Cup at Geelong’s Avalon Raceway tonight. ‘Molly’ led a large majority of the 30 lap Main event in convincing fashion from closest challenger Stephen Bell and young gun Tim Rankin.
The team at Avalon Raceway would like to extend a Merry Christmas to all of our loyal fans and sponsors.
Current Victorian Sprintcar champion Stephen Bell heads the nominations for Boxing Day’s Sprintcar Gold Cup at Geelong’s Avalon Raceway. Doubling as round 6 of the Eureka Sprintcar Series, Bell has enjoyed consistent results over consecutive weekends to currently lead the Eureka championship narrowly over defending series winner John Vogels, young gun Nick Lacey and Winchelsea’s Ryan Davis who are all tied on points in second place.
Following a career that up until last summer had failed to show a feature win at Avalon Raceway, Lilydale’s Mike Van Bremen can now lay claim to three feature wins in 12 months at the venue. Van Bremen withstood several challenges from eventual runner up Grant Anderson to claim victory in the 42nd annual Sprintcar Fireball Derby at Geelong’s Avalon Raceway on Saturday night, December 11th. Impressive 18 year old South Australian Daniel Pestka raced into third place behind the leading duo.
