A massive field of forty five Super Sedans are set to contest the 10k to win Ian Boettcher Classic at Hi-Tec Oils Toowoomba Speedway this Saturday and Sunday night.

The field, which is by far the largest of the season to date, boasts five former National Super Sedan Champions, as well as multiple state champions.

Current National Champion Matty Pascoe is undoubtedly one of the favourites for the event having already claimed a massive six feature wins for the season to date.

Pascoe won the event last season, and will be hoping to take another $10000 cheque home to Sweet Chassis Headquarters.

Pascoe won’t have it all his own way however, with lots of serious challengers in the field. Tasmania’s Callum Harper is making the trek to Toowoomba from the ‘Apple Isle’, and has been in great form in recent times.

Harper secured a third place finish in last seasons Ian Boettcher Classic, and will be looking to move to the top step of the podium this time around.

Toowoomba’s own Sean Black will be right in the mix, and looking to keep the 10k right at home in Toowoomba.

Black is no stranger to success on his home track, but winning the Ian Boettcher Classic would undoubtedly be a career win for Black.

There is also plenty of young and upcoming talent in the field, led by Ipswich’s Brad Pascoe.

Pascoe is coming off a win and a second in the Summer Slam at Bundaberg and Gympie, and will be hoping that form will propel him to the 10k winners prize come Sunday night.

The massive field is further buoyed by an exciting format across both nights of racing.

On the opening night drivers will tackle time trials to set the grids for the two heat races, which could have up to an eight car inversion.

Following the two rounds of heats the top sixteen will lock into the twenty five lap preliminary A Main, with positions seventeen through twenty coming from the B Main.

On night two the drivers will face a further round of heats based on the points standings from the opening night.

The top eighteen will lock into the thirty five lap main event, with the remaining drivers to tackle the B Main where the top six will transfer to lock in positions nineteen through twenty four.

All drivers in the top eighteen will have the opportunity to move further up the grid. Qualifiers thirteen through eighteen will run a six lap B Dash with the winner moving on to the A Dash, and the remainder of the field being set in their positions.

The winner of the B Dash will join qualifiers eight through twelve, with the winner joining the top seven in the pole shuffle, and the remainder of the field being set in their positions.

The winner of the A Dash joins the top seven qualifiers in the pole shuffle, with drivers going one on one in a two lap sprint in a hope to move closer to the front of the pack for the thirty five lap main event.

The Ian Boettcher Classic is to sure to be an event that you will not want to miss!
