Napier - 13 May 2006
Demolition Derby
Pictures & reporting by Mike Pollard

The final meeting of the season at Napier saw the huge entry of derby cars taking centre stage, allthough the night probably belonged to the stockcars and saloons. With all winter to effect repairs, the stockcars were out to destroy, and with over 20 x saloons on track, the action in this division was always guaranteed. Devoid of any visitors, the superstocks were far from the main attraction.

Superstocks

Heat 1
#65b John Hynd and #24b Gary Foley are first to show before #77b Shane Penn moves from the back up to 3rd, just as #24b Foley takes the lead. One lap later and #77b Penn hits the front as #65b Hynd is back past #24b Foley for 2nd. As #77b Penn pulls clear, #65b Hynd retires for the evening, leaving #31b Andy McCabe to folornly give chase to #77b Penn.

Heat 2
#77b Shane Penn was super-dominant, and drove to a strong win, with the first 3 x cars home unchanged from heat1.

Heat 3
#77b Shane Penn was quick away again, ahead of #7b Shane Mellsop and #11b Nigel Cooper, and that's the way it stayed, with #77b Penn untroubled until spun after the chequered by #7b Mellsop.
