LAUNCESTON driver Jamie Bricknell regained the lead in the state sprintcar series with a stunning victory in round six at the Hobart International Speedway, Sorell Creek, on Saturday night. The field included world number five driver Craig Dollansky, from the US, who finished second behind Bricknell in a fast-paced 30-lap final.
On the same program Ulverstone’s Brett Waddington claimed his fourth state title when he scored an emotional victory in the Tasmanian Street Stock Sedan Championship. Waddington dedicated his victory to his late mother who passed away last week.
The support program saw Latrobe V8 AMCA driver Kallam Muir continue his winning run with a strong drive in the final, while Marcus Kelly, of Devonport, was never headed on his way to a victory in the Formula 500 final. Fellow Devonport racer Josh Padman claimed his second consecutive victory with a confident drive in the final of the wingless sprintcars, while reigning state champion Laura Davidson, of Richmond, was too strong in the modified clubman speedway karts final. The junior kart final was won by Devonport’s Ben Boun, while fellow Devonport driver Hayden McBain took out the 125cc kart final.
