This Saturday night Nyora Raceway is the place to be as they host the inaugural South Gippsland Classic for the Grand Prix Midgets. The GP's ventured to Nyora Raceway for the first time earlier this season with only a small field of cars who adapted quickly to the tight turns and high banks. Drivers commented on how much fun the track was and that it suited their cars really well and thus will be turning up in numbers this weekend ready for battle. This Saturday night will also double up as Round 10 of the Ballistic Performance Parts Masters Series which is the penultimate round before the Round 11 at Rushworth Speedway next weekend. The series will come down to the wire with only 46 points separating the top 3. Trevor Perry will be the man to beat and he is stampeding his way to the finish line in the second half of the season after taking out the Wangaratta Cup last time out and before that the Australian Title. Although his last run at the venue was cut short after rolling in the 3rd heat he certainly showed that he has pace around this circuit. Sitting 2nd in points and only 4 points off the series lead is Lisa Chalcraft who will be hunting Trevor down with any chance she gets. She is a previous series winner and would love to take another Masters Series victory. In 3rd place in the series Jason Crawford who is the reigning series champion. He looked certain to take victory last time out until an ignition issues caused him to pull infield however he will be throwing everything he has at it this weekend to make up the much needed points.

The top 3 in points are pretty well cemented in place now however there are plenty of drivers who could stir things up and cause an upset this weekend as it is the inaugural South Gippsland Classic and an event which the club hope to make a regular fixture to their calendar many drivers are hoping to put their name on the trophy. Travis Florimell looks to be the one who has the best chance of causing an upset, he seems to have his car in a reliable state now and is right on the pace with Perry. Chris Fowler has also been on the improve after a mid season slump and will be in the mix as will the ex Aussie champ Paul Perry who can't be forgotten and will be in there challenging for the lead at some point. Throw in David Bacon, Sean Denning, Marty Job and Mark Blackeby and you've got yourself a pretty competitive field of cars that will certainly put on an entertaining show for the crowd.

If you haven't been to Nyora Raceway before do yourself a favour and come check it out this Saturday night. Due to the layout of the track the racing is always close and there is always plenty of action. Racing starts from 4pm with a Demo Derby and Fireworks to finish off the night.
