Round one of the Avalon Raceway Track Series for Super Sedans will take place this Saturday night, with a strong field entered, which includes drivers from four states.

Trent Wilson from Queensland, Dave Gartner from South Australia, along with Tasmanian drivers Corey Smith and Adam Beechey, will join the Victorians for the Avalon opener.

Lucas Roberts, a five times Victorian State Champion is always hard to beat at Avalon, and will be joined by Ash Bergmeier, Dave Mackenzie and Ben Faulkhead, who will fly the flag for the home state.

For South Australian Dave Gartner, he has raced twice since last seasons National Title, the New South Wales Title where he finished fifth, and to finish the season, Gartner competed in the Victorian Title where he finished second behind Peter Nicola.

We have changed the car a lot so we want to do a few local shows before Christmas to test it out to see if we can get our head around the changes. We havent changed the set up for a few years, it was very reliable, but time has come to try some new things, said Gartner.

Racing commences at Avalon at 7.00pm EDST
