DOUBLE HEADER EVENT -
The 2013 Kennard's Hire ''King of Pinjar'' solo title promises to be an absolute cracker with confirmation Aussie international Victoria's Ty Proctor (Wolverhampton) will make a welcome return to Pinjar for this exciting event. Proctor always gives it a red hot go at the tiny Pinjar ring and will want to make amends for missing the final (runner-up in 2010 & 2011) of the Rob Woffinden Classic back in December. Also in the line-up is Perth' very own international racer & current WA champion Cam Heeps (Ipswich), English Premier League riders Joe Jacobs (Glasgow) & fellow countryman Lewis Blackbird (Leicester). This will be the last Australian appearance for all four young international racers as they prepare for British League duties later this month.
2011 ''King of Pinjar'' winner Kale Ballantyne returns to racing after a nasty spill at the recent Australian U21 title at Loxford Park speedway at Kurri Kurri NSW. Young Kale will be keen to get back on the bike after the disappointment of his first taste of an Aussie final. The Cannington flyer, Dan Winchester is another talented racer looking for a solid finish to the Pinjar summer after his well earned 4th place behind some very talented company at the recent Rob Woffinden Classic. Other local riders such as Ethan Ballantyne, Brady Webb, Trevor Williams, Doug Scoble, 16 year old Blake Russell and lady racer Carley Gittus are all very capable of pinching points during the heats.
Junior solo riders will also feature in this DOUBLE HEADER event in the long running blue ribbon event for juniors, the Gordon Rowland memorial. This special event dates back to the the early days at the old Bibra Lake speedway and named after the late Gordon Rowland who lost his life in a racing incident at the former Claremont venue. WA junior champion Matt Marson will start out as favourite but will face some fierce competition from the Ziedas brothers, Kobee & Jaryad, the fast finishing Jack Smith, Declan Knowles & Mitchell Gill. Talented rider Sheldon Gill will unfortunately be missing for the event due to a heavy crash last week and were he suffered a badly broken upper arm, from everyone at the SMCWA & Pinjar Park we wish Sheldon a speedy recovery.
A full support feild will be also on the program for this special DOUBLE HEADER EVENT, Saturday Feb 16th, Pinjar Park speedway, Neerabup.
