A revving Saturday success

GLADSTONE driver Tony Curt powered through his AMCA car in Saturday night's five-class speedway event and he said it all came by chance a few years ago.

"A local builder gave me a drive in an AMCA car and I have liked it ever since and that was about six seasons ago," Curt said.

He now competes in between 15-20 speedway events a year and he added there have been several highlights along the way.

"In 2014 I won the Central Queensland Championships, but this year it has been quiet," Curt said.

"The other highlight has been driving in the Australian Titles as well."

Curt told the Observer that he had hoped for an incident-free race on Saturday night.

"I'm expecting a good clean run and hoping to keep off the wall," he said.

His son Joel, 15, is in his third season in the Junior Sedan class and he said he's looking to improve in each outing.

"I get tips from my dad and I have won a couple of heats, but no features yet," Joel said.

"I'm working toward my pace and have one more season in the Junior Sedans."

RESULTS

Formula 500: Brad Metcalf; Phil Roberts; Gary Edwards; Adrian AJ Josefski; Tony Schmidt

Junior Sedans: Daniel Johnson; Brooke Etherden; Abi Meehan
