FARRELL FIRST IN WILD BEASLEY MIDGET MEMORIAL

The Beasley Memorial speedcar classic has been THE speedcar race to win in Victoria for decades.

It goes some way to explaining why tonight’s 2014 Beasley classic at Geelong’s Avalon Raceway was one of the wildest open wheel contests ever seen at the spectacular quarter miler.

Paul Farrell won the race that celebrates the lives and times of brothers Alf and Stud Beasley, but it was n o certain thing right up until the final lap.

Up until that circle Domain Ramsey had been the star of the show, arriving late but not too fussed about starting in the back row.

Travis Mills led early until caught by Ramsey who whipped through the field to lead.

His sensational drive ended on the last lap when he went into a corner too hot and got into trouble.

In the meantime Farrell streaked to the flag clear of Andy Pearce and Troy Jordan.

Jordan filed a protest immediately after the event claiming Farrell had cut inside him entering a corner and roughed him up.

Alf and Stud would have been proud of the helter skelter that persisted and possibly their man of the match award would have gone to Domain, the racer, not the computer site host!
