An elated James Thompson driving the #22 Global Speedway Tours entry took out an action packed Ultimate Sprintcar Challenge (USC) A-Main at Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway last Saturday night 28th Oct.
It was Thompson’s second career A-Main at the Parramatta Clayway, which seems incredible as he’s always in the mix and the number of times he was on the podium last year is more than you can count of two hands.
Following Thompson across the line was a fast finishing Grant Tunks and local young gun Sam Walsh.
It was a torrid affair in the final with countless yellow light stoppages.
In fact there were so many cautions and associated rolling laps that many teams were looking down the gun barrel of running low on fuel.
Robbie Farr in his ECP #7 actually fell foul of the extended rolling laps and actually ran out of fuel having led the race and looking good for victory.
Final Placing’s were:
1 James Thompson
2 Grant Tunks
3 Sam Walsh
4 Max Dumesny
5 Mick Saller
6 Kim Becker
7 Blake Skipper
8 Marcus Dumesny
9 Brendan Scorgie
10 Matt Dumesny
11 Daniel Sayre
12 Ben Atkinson
13 Kaitlyn Anthony
The next USC event will double as the Syd Hopping Shootout on November 11.
