LOCAL SPEEDWAY FANS “BACKIN’ BLACK” FOR NEW YEARS WIN
Former Queensland Super Sedan Series Champion, Sean Black is in the prime of his career, and on New Year’s Eve, will take on the best exponents in the sport as part of the New Year’s Speed event.
A crack field of over 30 drivers from around Australia including five former national champions will hit the “Hi-Tec Hi-Banks” of Toowoomba Speedway this Sunday for the Super Sedan Summer Slam, that will contest four nights back to back at Gympie, Maryborough and Brisbane with the final at Toowoomba.
Despite the gruelling schedule and quality field, Meringandan’s Sean Black is unintimidated by the task, and is determined stamp his authority on his home track in front of an expected large local crowd.
“We’ve made the podium on both A Mains that we’ve been in this season and were battling for the lead as well, so we’ve definitely got the speed, and it would be fantastic to show our best hand at our home track,” Black said, anticipating a sleep deprived four nights of racing, where each night is a standalone event.
“It’s four nights back to back, plus the all four rounds are part of the Queensland Series points so that means everyone will be ten tenths every night racing for money and point for the series.”
Black began his Super Sedan career just over 9 years ago at the tender age of 16, before breaking his back in a horrifying crash at Toowoomba just one season later, jeopardising both his work and motorsport careers.
“It was a big wreck and I still don’t remember anything of it. I broke my T4 and crushed the T5 and T6, but I am grateful that I was able to eventually get back in the seat to be able to do what I love.”
The New Years Speed event will feature Freestyle Motocross, a Demolition Derby, Fireworks, and a crack field of Street Stocks and Junior Sedans.
