Superstar Robbie Farr was just that in the 30 lap track championship grand final in between the showers at Valvoline Raceway last Saturday night (12th Aug). While Farr took race honours for the night, it was Max Dumesny who secured the 2013/14 Track Championship.

The meeting was interrupted by three bouts of showers, but the drivers managed to pack down the racing surface and keep it useable.

The 30 lap Championship Grand Final produced a stellar field and it was top end Ben Atkinson who took off from the front row and ran away with the opening 10 laps. Atkinson, Max Dumesny and Farr all used the high line to great effect and as the race hit the halfway point, a shower swept over the track and caused several more laps of wheel packing until chief steward Gary Winterbottom turned them loose again.

Atkinson went to the front while Dumesny was gathered in by Farr who then dived inside Atkinson for the lead.

As an aggressive driver with class to burn, Farr never let off the throttle and crossed clear of Dumesny, the track series champion and Atkinson and James Thompson.
