AUSTRALIA, VICTORIA, MILDURA. Temperatures will literally be set half way to boiling point for Round 2 of the Australian Speedway Solo Championship this Saturday the 7th of January at Mildura’s Olympic Stadium, as the mercury is predicted to nudge 42 degrees, and the talent pool is overflowing with riders.
This healthy field will compete in 20 heats and two finals with the prediction that almost half the field are dicing for a chance on the most contested podium!
With the Championship kicking off at the iconic Speedway location – Gillman Speedway this past Wednesday it was Queenslanders Davey Watt who obliterated the field to steel himself the round 1 win, which puts himself in a fine position to battle in round 2.
Second placed Mildura’s Justin Sedgmen and third placed Troy Bachelor nipping at the heels of Watt.
Although taking the round 1 win Watt is on equal points with Sedgmen who will, this weekend return to his hometown track, ready to defend his turf!
The conclusion of round 2 this weekend will mark the halfway point in the Australian Speedway Solo Championship, so every point will count, racing against some of the world’s best talent.
