Noakes Wins Production Sedan Title
Matt Noakes has tonight won an exciting WA Production Sedan Title at the Ellenbrook Speedway in Western Australia.
Matt Amato would be the highest qualifier and along with Matt Noakes, shared the front row, while two former Champions Richard Nelson and David Lowe would start on row two.
Amato would lead from the outset, with Noakes, Nelson and Lowe in close proximity, as all drivers got through the first lap.
The defending Champion, Casey Paech who started from position eight, made it only to turn two on the second lap before his race was run, as he spun to the infield. Stacey Bevin would join Paech on the infield after four laps, after a very solid campaign via the qualifying heats.
Amato continued to lead Noakes, Nelson and Lowe in an exciting race, which featured several minor stoppages, all of which occurred on turn two. Placings remained unchanged until the half way mark when Craig Newman withdrew.
On the restart David Lowe showed his intentions as he passed Nelson and Noakes, who immediately fought back, as it became apparent that the title was up for grabs.
A further stoppage on lap twenty one would be for Bruno Porro who hit the fence, ending Porro's strong performance.
On the subsequent restart, it would be Nelson who challenged, as did Lowe and five times West Australian Champion Ron Belfield, who had moved to fifth after starting from position fourteen. Noakes, Lowe, Nelson and Belfield, woudld start to swap positions behind Amato who continued to lead narrowly.
The strong run of Michael Hamon and Wayne Bird would also come to an end with eleven laps remaining, which would see Noakes take the lead from Amato on the resultant restart.
Once in the lead, Noakes cleared away in his potent Sigma, with Amato still holding second ahead of Nelson and Belfield who had moved ahead of David Lowe. Nelson and Belfield continually attacked Amato, with Nelson making a great move around Amato with six laps remaining to take second.
Meanwhile, David Lowe slowly started to slip back through the field as Glenn Hoskins and Daniel Ameduri moved to fifth and sixth respectively.
Noakes opened a commanding lead in the concluding stages, to win convincingly, over Richard Nelson, a gallant Amato and Belfield.
"I would like to thank my family and friends, for all of their hard work and support", said a happy Noakes.
An elated Richard Nelson, who won in 2006 dedicated the win to the car owner, and advised the car was raced for the last time, and would be sold. "I told you ten years ago (referring to Jason Crowe) I was getting too old, but this is great"
Earlier the B Main was a race of attrition, with seven cars taken from the field on the opening lap, with a multiple car pile up. Only six cars would finish the race, with Clint Noakes, Daniel Hade, Brenton Cherry and Kane McDiarmid advancing, although McDiarmid advanced after Warren Oldfield was relegated for a pass on McDiarmid on the last lap. All four drivers who made the A Main, all finished in seventh, eighth, tenth and eleventh respectively.
The C Main was much less eventful with Leighton Pritchard and John Tarandetti advancing.
Over night leader Tim Green, was involved in an incident in his final qualifying heat and would not finish, moving him back to eleventh place in the A Main. A spin during the race would see Green go to the rear of the field, which would see him ultimately not recover from and he retired on lap twenty three.
