DOBLE DOMINATES NARROGIN!
Mick Doble won Round 11 of the LSA Season Championship at Narrogin Speedway last night to make it 3 Round wins in a row. Mick had a perfect night winning both his heats and the feature race!
Earlier in the afternoon, 5 drivers declared their hand to double this rounds points, those being Anthony Gaudio, Alex Williams, Jamie Langdon, Sean Zemunik and Benny Migro.
The opening heat saw Zemunik drawing pole position, however, Sean's luck would dessert him again as he hurt his motor in hotlaps. This meant Migro moved up the grid to take his place. Doble also started on the front row and won the opening heat from Migro and Glenn Dickinson who was behind the wheel of the Ant Dye owned machine.
Heat 2 saw Brendon Dickinson start from pole position and take the win. Anthony Gaudio finished 2nd after starting in P5 and Albany's Jamie Langdon took 3rd.
The next heat saw Glenn Dickinson and Anthony Gaudio on the front row. On the first attempt to get underway Gaudio jumped the start and Doble followed from the 2nd row, spectacularly launching off the right rear of Dickinson's car and impressively landing back on all 4 wheels. When the race officially got started Dickinson took the lead from Gaudio before Doble drove around the outside to take the win.
The final heat for the night saw local driver Daryl Borgas start on pole with Tahni Doble on his outside. At the start it was Benny Migro going around the side of the front row to take the lead. Starting from 5th Steven Kendall made his way through to challenge Migro on the last corner of the last lap. Kendall got past Migro and got to the line first but got relegated 2 spots for an infield pass. Migro was declared the winner from Borgas and Kendall.
Feature race time and it was Mick Doble and Migro starting on the front row. As the lights went green Paul Flint pulled infield and the field was down to 10. Doble led from Migro, Glenn Dickinson and Gaudio. Only a handful of laps had been put in the book when Migro's right front stub axle snapped off the car sending him straight towards the fence in turn 3 and 4. The abandoned wheel landing on the bonnet of Daryl Borgas' car.
There were to be a couple more restarts and each time Doble led from Glenn Dickinson and Gaudio and this is how it would be until the checkered flag fell. Further back Langdon had come through from starting P8 to finish 4th, then Daryl Borgas 5th only just from Brendon Dickinson in 6th who had been in good battles with Borgas and Kendall. Kendall finished 7th, Alex Williams 8th and Tahni Doble 9th.
With the results falling the way they did this moved Anthony Gaudio into the lead of the Championship Points Standings and with only 1 round to go can he hang on or will Benny Migro bounce back?
