As clouds and a threatening storm cell brews over the Kwinana region in Perth WA today, some doubt is being cast as to whether the Grand Opening of the Motorplex Super Speedway calendar will kick off tonight. Let’s hope Mother Nature settles sufficiently to get the meeting in.
We can report however that there was plenty of action last weekend in the curtain raiser event held at the Motorplex that saw Limited Sprintcars and 360’s race, plus a few of open 410 cars in a practice session.
In the Limited Sprintcar class, 19 year old Brayden Miller started from where he left off last year in a winning mode by easily taking out the 12 lap Limited feature race in the Muir Motorsport/Creative Elegance #1. The current Limited State Champion was a cut above the opposition all night and drove a beautifully calculated race with a deflating rear tyre at mid-race distance.
Coming home behind Miller were Kye Scroop driving the Peter Harvey-owned #83 and Justin Bell in the #29 entry.
In the 360’s Jake Beard-Miller in the TMG Fabrication #32 took the feature from Jason Priolo and Dean Terry.
