The 2021/2022 KCM Transport WA Modified Sedan Series fires back into action at Tyrepower Manjimup Speedway this weekend following a lengthy break between rounds of the series to allow for the running of the 2021/2022 SSA Modified Sedan WA Title in Albany.
This weekend’s action is proudly supported by Phil Blackman of Blackman Fabrications and isn’t just the fifth round of the KCM Transport WA Modified Sedan Series, it is also the beginning of the second half of this season’s racing, with just four rounds remaining and plenty of all important series points still on offer.
Headlining the racing this weekend is newly crowned WA Modified Sedan champion, Jason Batchelor, who will look to continue on his winning ways when Modified Sedan racing returns to the unique Manjimup Speedway.
Joining Batchelor will be father and daughter duo of Glenn and Kathryn Harper who will travel over 1,000 kilometres from Carnarvon to be part of the action.
Also re-joining the racing this weekend will be Lee Watt and Calon Ball, who were both unable to compete in the state title in Albany.
Lee Watt is the current series points leader going into the second half of the season, though with Luke Fraser currently sitting third and having not played his joker as yet, he will also be one to watch this weekend along with Jayke Malcolm who currently sits in second on the points tally.
Anthony King finally put mechanical gremlins to rest a fortnight ago in Albany and was storming towards the front with limited laps remaining.
King has already shown great pace in the 2021/2022 KCM Transport WA Modified Sedan Series, so keep an eye on the Totally Independent Tyre Service and Mechanical Ford Falcon.
Series regulars Shane Dubberlin, Merv Penn and Brett Mills will also be in the field and looking to score all important series points, as will Brenden Higgs who has enjoyed his time back in the Modified Sedan ranks of recent times.
Racing will get underway from 6pm on Saturday night at Tyrepower Manjimup Speedway, with three qualifying heats, the Southern Stump and Mulching Services Shootout and all-important twenty lap feature on the cards, courtesy of Blackman Fabrications.
