Kihikihi Stockcar Teams
The Rotorua Rascals retained their hold on the Stockcar teams trophy at Kihikihi on Sunday with wins over the local Crusaders team bolstered by two Stratford cars and then a brutal final win over the impressive Auckland Alleycats who were looking for their first ever win at this event. Auckland had beaten the Waikato Raiders in their first race and did well to get a full team out for the final. The two hits that will standout from this event were the 6h tank of Lindsay Trotter ending the Auckland runner Gary Lonergan's race and the huge rollover of 43k Dave Maxwell in the runoff for third place. Good size crowd, good weather and possibly the best bacon and egg burger I've ever had at a speedway track! Although very dusty at times, Im sure that will improve once the grassed infield is sorted and quite a 'relaxed' approach to the running of the meeting will be interesting to see how they step things up for the big SuperStock meeting next season.
