Wanganui
Rivercity Youth Ministock Invitation
03 April 2011
Reporting by Roger Morrison and pictures by Mike Pollard

Palmerston North's Nic Davey put a classy field to the sword on Sunday afternoon when claiming the River City Youth Ministock Invitation title. With two wins and a second over the three heats it was a case of the balance of the field fighting over the crumbs left on offer. The win also buried the memory of Davey being unluckily denied the chance of claiming the Craig Heibner Memorial Youth Ministock crown earlier in the season.

Superstocks/Stockcars

Just the 5 Superstocks fronted as numbers in the elite class continued to struggle at Oceanview- 3NZ Peter Rees again made the commitment to front along with 45S Stephen Guilford and locals 6V Dion Mooney, 23V Scott Duncan & 35V Mick Paul. Stockcar numbers were healthier with 14, although a number of cars are starting to show the strain of a long and torrid season. The Superstocks got just the one race before combining with the Stockcars off a 1 lap handicap. The talking point of the afternoon was the form of young Asher Rees who got to drive his father's 2NZ tank - the result being three wins including the Feature & Grand Slam. The 321V Hilton Parker car was handed over to Stuart Smith for the afternoon and he showed that he had lost none of his skills although the win in the Feature will not count as the car was not carrying a transponder. Otherwise 36P Ron Tye did his best to mix things up along with 63V Shane Joseph. 51V Sam Doyle almost managed to tip 76V Jason Wilson up & over in one event but the green machine managed to land on it's wheels intact.
