Western Sydney Street Stocker (WSSS) drivers are eager to get their Club Championship underway after Mother Nature caused a delayed start to their 2018-19 season.

While the inclement weather has wreaked havoc on the opening two rounds of their Club Championship at Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway, the rain hasn’t been enough to dampen the drivers’ spirits, with an eventful season still ahead of them, including a mixture of points and non-points race meetings.

In addition to their Club Championship, drivers also have the option to participate in the Country Series, which will take place over five rounds, two of those at Nowra Speedway and another two at Goulburn Speedway and one at Moruya’s Surfair Speedway, along with the annual Pink Night at Valvoline Raceway on the Saturday night of December 8.

Off the back of collecting last season’s Club Championship spoils in just his second season with the RSA Street Stockers class, NSW # 2 Chris Marino will no doubt be one of the hot favourites to top this season’s point score, with the consistent racer’s worst finish at his home track – Valvoline Raceway – being an impressive fourth place in the Australian Title.

Former NSW Champion and WSSS Champion Kiona Sunerton is sure to keep Marino honest throughout the season, having narrowly placed second in last season’s championship, as is 2017 Australian Champion and current Australia # 2 Shaun Davoodi, who rounded out the Club Championship top three.

Hoping to experience a more positive start to this 2018-19 campaign, after last season experiencing a series of unfortunate DNFs before eventually driving to a feature-race victory at Valvoline Raceway, 2016-17 season Club Champion Andrew Espener is always one to watch, along with Stephen Kurtz, Steven Walsh, veteran Ray Tyler and John Upston.

Other drivers to watch out for include Sean Isherwood, Blake Doyle, Charlie Dodson, Jarrett Dryburgh, Steven Sharpe, Huey Vanderveen, Blake Milton, Matt Hope, Shane Ward, Greg Brown and Kai Jones.

Dawes Family

Numerous family teams will be hitting the track this season, including Butch Dawes and his son and daughter Troy and Ash Dawes, and Alexander brothers Mark, Shannon and Mat.

Anthoney Attard is set to be joined on track by his son Jaiden this season, while another new face in Nathan Arnold will also be hoping to build up speed as the season progresses.

The Western Sydney Street Stockers will be hitting the track this Saturday night at Goulburn Speedway for the opening round of their Country Series.
