After the success of nearly 100 competitors running in re-return of the South West Sedan Championship with only three of the four rounds being run due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the four clubs that reside in the South West region have agreed to return the series for the 2020/2021 season.
The series will continue with the same format and prize pool with both Street Stocks, Production, and Junior Sedans all competing on the same night to fight it out to become the South West Sedan Champion.
Both Street Stocks and Production Sedans will fight for a minimum $4,000 prize pool paying down to tenth place.
This seasons series will run over a larger period with the opening round being held at the opening meeting for the Make Smoking History Collie Speedway, which triples up as the Curly Fishlock Memorial and the grand opening of the second stage of the lighting project the Collie Racing Drivers Association has completed over the offseason.
The Series then moves its way down to the Tyrepower Manjimup Speedway for the second round on November 28.
After a long time off to capture all the other major Speedway events in the State, the Trade Hire Augusta Margret River Speedway will finally get its chance to host a round of the series on March 13 after missing out due to the pandemic while the final round will be hosted at the Make Smoking History Bunbury Speedway on April 10, just two weeks before hosting the Speedway Sedans Australia Street Stock National Title at the same venue.
Coming up in the coming weeks will be a change to the points structure and rules for the 2020/2021 South West Sedan Championship.
