Durston Returns to Victory Lane

After a 12-month stint on the sidelines, AMCA Nationals racer Nathan Durston found himself back in the winner’s circle at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway last Saturday night, breaking through to claim his first feature-race win since returning to the track.

While he’s visited the podium on several occasions throughout the 2017-18 season in the minor positions, Durston hadn’t quite been able to reach the top step while attempting to dial in his 350 Chev powered Qld # 97 Palm Beach Motors / McKinnell Motorsports supported Kempy car; however, last Saturday night’s outing proved that his car is now well and truly capable of winning.

WA Title to L’Huillier

The running of the 2017-18 season Western Australian AMCA Nationals Title was fought out at Manjimup Speedway last Saturday night, and it was Matt L’Huillier who emerged triumphant.

A small field contested the event around the massive 600-metre track and although down on numbers, the field had plenty of quality including: last season’s WA Title runner-up L’Huillier and two-time WA Champion David Boyes. With rain falling on the morning of the event, drivers were met with a tricky track that had plenty of drive in it all through the night.

Barnstorming Brooks

Continuing his Tasmanian AMCA National Title reign, Daniel Brooks made it a remarkable four wins on the trot in last Saturday night’s running of the event at Cranes Combined Carrick Speedway.

The event, which was initially washed out on its original date last month, attracted a field of 19 cars and just like last season’s event, Brooks, from Bothwell in Tasmania, started from pole position and then led all 30-laps. The race was run at a frantic pace as the final 23-laps ran non-stop after an early caution on lap seven.

Heseltine Returns to Victory Lane

After getting his 2017-18 season off to the best possible start back in October, Dean Heseltine recently at Moama’s Heartland Raceway returned to victory lane after taking out the third AMCA Nationals Action Series round.

Despite not quite achieving the same results as last season, which saw him collect six feature-race wins, Heseltine has enjoyed a positive 2017-18 season so far in his six appearances, having shown solid pace aboard his Vic # 93 Hair By Denae-backed Panther car which he believes has led to improved driving.

Markulin Makes Gains

Despite being forced to qualify for the recent Australian AMCA Nationals Title-deciding feature race via the B main, Peter Markulin certainly proved that he was up to the challenge after coming away with a satisfying top-10 finish.

In what was his sixth Australian Title attempt, Markulin well and truly beat the odds to achieve his best result yet, with his previous best result being ninth place in the 2014 running of the event at Carrick Speedway in Tasmania, but he certainly didn’t do it the easy way.

Moore Title Success in Victoria

In Saturday night’s Victorian AMCA Nationals Title at Swan Hill’s Sonic Speedway, it was newly-crowned Australian Champion Jeremy Moore who once again earned his champion status after taking out top feature-race honours.

Strongly resembling the early stages of the Australian Title feature race just one week prior, where the Victorian duo of Mathew Mills and Jamie Collins, along with Moore (SA), led the field before Moore came away with the victory, the Victorian Title-deciding feature race once again saw the trio heading up the pack; however, on this occasion, Moore didn’t have to wait until mid-race distance to take the lead.
