World Series Sprintcars (WSS) raced at Bunbury Western Australia last weekend in the second last round of the series.

Just four out of town Drivers made the big haul from the Eastern States – Brooke Tatnell, James McFadden, Jamie Veal and Steven Lines.

Fifteen other WA local drivers filled the nomination list to make it a modest 19 cars.

In the action packed feature it was  Brooke Tatnell who rose to the top and took a popular victory from James McFadden and Jamie Veal.

The first local home was the defiant Jamie Maiolo, followed quickly behind by brother Brad and Trent Pigdon.

19 cars greeted the judge at the start of the race and only 12 were able to get to the chequers.

A massive incident involving Kye Scroop, Cameron Gessner and Steven Lines saw only Lines able to restart and massive damage to the rear of the “Scoop Mobile”.

Tatnell displayed great experience throughout the night. He bagged quick time of 13.108 from Jamie Veal 13.129 and James McFadden 13.183. Tatnell secured two third places in his heats and then won the pole shootout.

Heat winners were Trent Pigdon , Jamie Maiolo x2 and Steven Lines.

Local Myalup driver Jamie Maiolo’s poor time trial of 13.583 (10th) was unfortunate as he would have gone much closer to top point scorer had he been a bit quicker.

As it was he finished 4th in the pole shootout after being the 5th best on points after heats.
