King of the Coast
Greenstone Park Speedway
18 April 2009
I've been going to Greenstone park raceway in Greymouth annually for a least the last 10 or so years and never managed to finish in the top 3 all ways seem to crash or have some sort of bad luck so this year I was real keen to turn that around, and we did!
With all the rain the coast had leading up to race day the track was real slushy, just the way I like it. After a big wheel packing session we got down to some racing. I was real lucky to finish 2nd in the first heat after a big collision with Ralph Goodwin driving the Lovelady Mustang, fortunately the damage was not enough to send me to the infield.
Race two I moved through the field to finish 3rd, and race three finished 2nd to Martin Harcourt. That was enough to take 1st for the Day and very pleasing after never being able to achieve any decent results there. Congats also to Martin Harcourt 2nd and Ronny Taylor 3rd.
The only disappointment was having to come home and not being able to stay for the renowned West Coast hospitality and after match.
