Newly crowned Western Australian Champion Gary “Dusty” Higgs was the dominate force during Round One of the 2020/2021 WA Super Sedan Summer Series held last night at the Tyrepower Manjimup Speedway in the South West of Western Australia.
Higgs won all three races that he contested on the night with the driver of the RPM Race Products Sweet seemingly in full control of the twenty lap A Main until a late race challenge by third generation pilot Lee Aylett.
Nine SSA Super Sedans were in attendance at the “Timbertown” venue with each driver competitor contesting two of the three heat races across the evening.
Chris Pavlovich aboard his Southern Haulage Sweet was the only other driver than Higgs to greet the chequered flag first, with track conditions ideally suited to the Super Sedan category.In the early laps of the main event, Higgs got out to over a six second leader over the chasing Lee Aylett with Pavlovich back in third.
Rob Knox would hand fourth place to Kevin Bell after a spin on the back straight as the leader began to lap traffic.
Within sight of the finish Higgs would make contact with the back of Kemble Aylett as he attempted to lap the veteran competitor with the gap between Higgs and Lee Aylett shrinking from that point on.
Lee Aylett had one opportunity to steal victory as he went to the outside in turn three on the final circulation riding over the right rear tyre of the leader as Higgs managed to hold on narrowly from Aylett and Pavlovich.
The second round of the 2020/2021 WA Super Sedan Summer Series will be held at the Make Smoking History Collie Speedway on Saturday 19th December 2020.
