Leahy Off 2 a Great Start

Leahy Speedway Racing have hit the dirt this summer with the same intent they did last year and have started off with two feature wins from two starts at Horsham and then Redline in Ballarat for team driver Jeff Leahy the reigning Victorian 3 Litre Sedan Champion against the same stiff competition they had last season in Zac Swanson and Nick Hill.

In the offseason the team has been pleased to welcome new sponsorship from CV Centre Dandenong, Dave Murphy Plumbing Services and Quick Race Parts to compliment their already strong supporters list. With the extra support lending itself to the team the chance to go back to back with the Association point score and the Victorian title is strong.

‘Blue Ribbon Raceway’ Horsham was the team’s first start of the season and it was important to get some laps in as the 3 Litre Victorian title is at Horsham this season. With 3 heats before the final the team were sure to get plenty of laps over the course of the evening and they began heat one in 8th place before working their way into 3rd by the final flag. Heat two Leahy began mid pack in 5th and finished 6th after encountering fuel pressure concerns.

The final heat was the prime pole position start the team needed and initially they made the most of it leading the first 8 laps. The car then succumbed to a flat right read and ended up on the infield as a non finisher putting the team back in 6th place to begin the feature.

Some great battles during the feature race firstly with Will Lamb and then with Dan Watson who was leading at the time. Watson and Leahy went around side by side without touching once for around 3 laps before Leahy took the lead and finished off the remainder of the race in front.

After the win it was Redline Raceway for the next stop and again the team drew an 8th place start in the first heat however on this occasion they went on to finish 2nd before winning the next two heats in front of Will Lamb and Zac Swanson.

Leahy won the final by leading all the way in the 20 laps to take victory ahead of Nick Hill and Zac Swanson and it seemed had overcome their fuel pressure concerns along the way.

Leahy had some words about the great start to his season. “We still have some issues with the car. To win both features is a positive sign that we have the right package again this season however I got to say that Will Lamb is back in form, Dan Watson has some pace and Nick Hill and Zac Swanson will continue to trouble us and I know both are keen to be Victoria one in 3 Litres before possibly moving on to other race categories.”

Leahy next has a spin ay Horsham for a club 3 litre show before the 3 Litre Association Series returns to Rosedale Speedway for the next series round on the 29th of February.
