With a little over two weeks to go, a number of drivers are honing their skills both in New Zealand and in Australia in preparation for the New Zealand Midget Title to be held at WXC Speedway – Western Springs. With the entries now closed, there will be 26 drivers willing to contest this title and based on current form this could go anyway.
Current NZ Champion – Brad Mosen has joined fellow kiwis Michael Pickens, Hayden Williams and Leon Burgess in Brisbane to run the Midget Series there. Michael has continued with his winning form with winning the first round at Archerfield, whilst the other three charged from the rear of the field having missed the first night.
Brock Maskovich has headed south to keep his eye on the prize and will run a number of meetings at Ruapuna with Dave Kerr, current NZ3.
The seeded Midget Groups have been drawn, and the countdown begins.
There are a number of other drivers showing good form and include Michael Brunt, Chris McCutcheon, Brock Maskovich and several others.
Michael will be keen to take yet another title, however there are a number of drivers on form at the moment who could snatch this.
Speedway NZ have passed on the entry list to the TAB, and the odds will be available later this week. We will post the link to them once they are available.
