The Short Circuit Motor sport Association has always encouraged Junior drivers whose ages range from fourteen to seventeen years. In recent years the Junior class has dwindled. We had over twenty Juniors competing in the short circuit racing but over the years the few Juniors were only running in the sprints.
The last meeting at Morgan Park saw the best field of Juniors to compete at our events for many years. Eight of these Juniors came from the Ipswich West Moreton Auto Club who regularly compete at Willowbank Park. It was grand to have them competing at the QLD-NSW Sprint Challenge and it was great to see these Juniors in action. Their skill behind the wheel was something to see and many of them will go a long way in motor sport. The Association were honoured to have them compete at our events and only hope they will come back to our future events.
Front Row: Allison Beveridge, Saxon Moyes, Sophia Buccini, Brock Paine
Back Row: Adam Hayne, Eddie Gough, James Ball, Scott Ward, Kayden Rieck, Chloe Cullen, Zac Hudson
Local Toowoomba Indy Car driver made history on the 27th May by winning the 2018 Indianapolis 500. Not only did he win the race he also became the first Australian to win the Indianapolis 500 in the 102 years that the race which is classed as the biggest motor sporting event in the world.
Many people do not realise that Will Power started his motor racing career with the Short Circuit Motor Sport Association when he was only a young lad. He had his first race at the Millmerran Auto Club’s Reserve Raceway. Later at the same track Will partnered by his father Bob, won the 100 lap endurance race.
I remember saying after that he would go a long way in motor sport, but I never thought he would go as far as he has.
He also raced on the dirt circuits of Echo Valley in Toowoomba, Morgan Park at Warwick, and Carnell Raceway in Stanthorpe. After his day on the dirt circuits Will went to the big CAMS tracks and raced Formula Ford and various other vehicles, and became the first Queenslander to win the CAMS Gold Star.
The Short Circuit Motor Sport Association is very proud of our involvement with Will in his early years, and in some small way launched Will on his way to becoming the great driver he is today. I can assure you that Will has never forgotten where he started, as he says in the book about Will from the dirt tracks of Queensland to the major motor racing circuits of America.
Recently when he is home Will has attended some of our events and presented the trophies.
