Supercharged show a thriller

THE motors at Benaraby Raceway revved louder than ever at the weekend to mark the end of a fantastic series.

The seventh and final round of the championship series was contested Saturday and in celebration the supercharged outlaws put on a performance of a lifetime.

"It really got the crowd going," vice-president Glenn Williams said.

"It was an excellent crowd," he said.

Williams said a good turn-out of cars made for close competition and the event went smoothly despite one small hiccup.

"One of the competitors had an oil-down which delayed the event by about an hour and a half," he said.

"It was a long day but a very good one."

It was the perfect way to end what Williams describes as a fantastic year.

"I would like to thank all the spectators and competitors, new and old who made this year what it was," he said.

The series is set to start again in early February.

"We will hopefully have more improvements done on the track before then," Williams said.

"Anyone interested in joining next season should keep an eye on our website."

The final tally of Saturday's results was not available at the time of print.
