Palmerston North - 12 January 2008
Manawatu Sprintcar Champs
Pictures & reporting by Mike Pollard 

Sprintcars
#77m Phil Game and #57m Aaron McConachy were the long distance travellers, having hauled from mt manganui, and showed their class with both drivers finishing on the podium.
#77m Game looked particularly impressive; winning the opening heat and taking the big race feature by some distance despite a number of stoppages

Superstocks
1nzp Simon Joblin was back racing after injury, and unfortunately looked to be off the pace especially amongst traffic, recording a best finish of 8th in the feature. By contrast, Barry Podjursky was out racing for the first time in a long time and showed no ring rust at all by winning the opening heat in the borrowed #24p Russell Harrop car. Furthest traveller; #74r Jeff Mohi from Rotorua no doubt wished he hadn't bothered, getting no further than the first bend in ht1. #74r Mohi failed to grid for ht2 and then caught fire in the feature! Visitor #7b Shane Mellsop from Napier was something of a surprise albeit deserved winner in the feature ahead of ht2 winner and the nights top points scorer #3nzp Shane Penn.
