Over in the Saloon Cars Pro-AM class, the field will have a huge task to catch Marc Watkins in 1st and even Michael Holdcroft in 2nd, however 16 year old Chase Hoy currently has a task to defend 3rd place from Carl Fanderlinden with only 9 points separating the two.
Up in the Saloon Cars Pro class, Grant Johnson has a comfortable lead while Brock Boley and Matt Martin will be scrapping for second, with Rick Gill nipping at Brock’s heels for 3rd.
WA Sporting Car Club’s chair of the events committee, Peter Dyball is excited for the upcoming race meet saying: “We’re really looking forward to some great racing this Saturday at our Nightmasters event. It’s the last WASCC race event for 2020, as well as the thrill of night racing, we’re going to have State and Club championships decided, it should be epic.
2020 has certainly been a challenging year for motorsport in Australia and in WA. Thanks to all our competitors for their understanding and flexibility and to our officials for their fantastic efforts. While 2021 is likely to throw plenty of curve balls at us, the WASCC team and Committee will be doing our best to conduct great events and get as many people as possible participating in motorsport at Wanneroo Raceway.”
