Last weekend Perth Motorplex ended its 2015/16 Sprintcar Season with a corker of a program – The Sprintcar Gold Cup. The action was fast and furious and even the best got caught up in some spectacular crashes.
Here you will see the action through Peter Roebuck’s Lens as he makes time stand still while firstly Shaun Bradford (W57) takes a wild ride, then followed by Rob Watson Junior (W66).
They were both massive crashes and luckily both Drivers emerged OK, reinforcing just how good the safety aspects are to these ferocious dirt track cars.
Not to be outdone, Rob Watson Junior also got some airtime and attracted a lot of attention. Rob drives the Watson’s Express house car and anyone would think he was staging an advertising blitz given his car livery and the matching Watson’s Express Transport Signage in the background of the Motorplex fence.
And so now we Sprintcar tragics are now faced with the sombre experience of a winter Sprintcar Hiatus as Australia’s Showcase Speedway – Perth Motorplex – now has a well deserved rest.
What a top season it was – we are already after one short week longing for the start of the Perth Motorplex 2016/17 season!!!
