GEOFF Nothdurft was one of the Warwick winners in the Queensland Super Sprints Championships for B drivers at Morgan Park Raceway at the weekend.
He won the sports car class after winning his seven races.
Warwick District Sporting Car Club member Luke Hain won the junior class in a close battle with Kieran Locke.
Hayden Haidley competed in junior and was in the top five in most of his races.
Matt Campbell is still eligible for juniors but due to a car modification is competing in the pre-1972 classic touring cars class and came third for the day.
Dan O'Mara was in improved production up to 1.6 litre capacity and won his class.
Car club president Bill Campbell said the super sprints were a great success.
“We had 106 competitors from as far as Gundagai in New South Wales,” Campbell said.
“Three of the four rounds for A and B series drivers have been completed with the final rounds in August 28-29 for A drivers and September 11-12 for B drivers.”
This weekend, car club members will run the canteen and help ensure the smooth running of the National Historic Meeting which has attracted 247 drivers from Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.
Warwick driver Matt Clift will compete in a Mazda RX2 in the historic meeting.
John Wishart has nominated in the sports car class with his 1972 Welsor.
Matt Campbell is in regularity for the second successive year. The winner of regularity is the driver closest to nominated times.
Some of the interstate drivers will arrive in Warwick late Thursday. Qualifying is Saturday morning with racing on Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday.
