Busselton’s Kyle Sayer made his first start of the 2021/2022 season a success on Sunday afternoon by claiming the fifteen lap main event for the SSA Production Sedans at the Allwest Plant Hire – Ellenbrook Speedway.

In the race meeting dubbed the “Prelude to the RDA Production Classic”, Sayer inherited the lead after early race leader Kye Blight suffered a gearbox failure just as he had thrown off the challenge from Sayer.

Twenty Seven SSA Production Sedans put on an outstanding display of Speedway Sedan racing throughout the day as some of Western Australia’s finest showed their level of talent.

The major incident of the race occurred on lap two when the TLC Contracting Holden Commodore of Hayden Norman climbed over the side of the spun Ford Falcon of Michael Clark in front him which launched Norman’s car skywards up into the catch fence before landing back on the racing surface.

Norman was shaken but mostly unscathed from one of the biggest crashes seen at the Ellenbrook venue for many years.

Josh Fraser would hit the wall heavily on lap eleven while running in second place bringing a premature end to the main event.

Prior to the conclusion of the race the battle for all of the positions in the top ten was worth the price of admission alone, with Jamie Higgs & Jayden McCuish filling the podium positions in their Holden Commodores.

A bumper field is expected for the 2021 RDA Production Classic to be held on Sunday 5th September 2021 (Father’s Day), with the race meeting doubling as the final round of the 2021 Natrad SSD Four Crowns Series
