of November with a full program of local heroes in club racing and the visiting Grand Prix Midgets
competing in their second state series round of the season.
The Grand Prix Midgets are headlined by their national champion Ash Booker however based on
action at Wangaratta recently he is in for a tough time of things on track with Chris Fowler, Louis
Rodriguez, Lisa Chalcraft, the Perry boys Trevor & Paul and guest driver Darren Power looking for
their own glory.Shepparton's Louis Rodriguez will be in the mix.
The Midgets with their Yamaha & Suzuki engines get up quite a decent speed on the super fast
Alexandra venue & could smash some records this Saturday night.

Sedans, SSA Juniors & VSC Juniors.
Alexandra local resident Luke Fallon won the Sports Sedan final last meeting and he will be looking
to repeat. Matt Ridd also a local racer makes a return to racing whilst Greg Parks from Lancefield

of the season.
