Last Thursday 9th May saw the Perth Motorplex host their Trophy night for season 2012/13.
Prominent Sprintcar racer Ben Ellement was awarded the highest accolade : The “Speedway Driver of the Year” award. Ben and his Team had a great season with several Quick Times, First Places and a swag of podium finishes all summing up to what was considered the best Driving performance of any speedway category at the Perth Motorplex.
Ben was elated with the award and paid tribute to his hard working Team, who not only had to contend with setting up and maintaining the Open 410 Sprintcar, but also a 360 as well, which saw Ben seat hop in and out of in on many a race night.
The trophies looked Simply Spectacular and were a credit to Gavin Migro (Motorplex Speedway Manger) and his hard working Team at “The Plex”.
The Ellement Team will have a short break during the off season and plan to come back with an even stronger package in Season 2013/14 with a host of brand new gear.
Incidentally, the new Perth Motorplex season kicks off in October and the race Calendar will be posted on the official website in July. At that point simply go to www.motorplex.com.au follow the prompts to the Speedway section. I am told there are a heap of surprises in the proposed Calendar and an absolute bundle of Sprintcar Racing.
Bring it on !
