Boxing Day : Well we simply have to say…….it was a great victory by veteran Robbie Farr in the Q7 at Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway in amongst some of the best Sprintcar talent in the world.

Making their way to Valvoline Raceway across the pond were USA stars Kasey Kahne, Brad Sweet and “Multi – Motor” Kyle Larson – just to name a few.

In a what was a very hard fought A-Main, Robbie Farr prevailed ahead of Brad Sweet and the talented Kyle Larson.

Farr’s determination and skill using the main straight “drop-off” nearly brought him unstuck….but ultimately he was up the mark and secured a very popular victory in his Barry Waldron ECP Racer.

Here’s  how Gary Reid saw the meeting…thanks Gary – awesome camera work mate!
