COMPACT SPEEDCARS

With Compact Speedcars comes Darren Vine, who features prominently in our top-five ranking after delivering another remarkable season, while another four drivers certainly kept him honest throughout the season.

1. Darren Vine (Qld)
When looking for our number one Compact Speedcar driver, we could look no further than Vine, who this season remarkably managed to collect his eighth career and fifth consecutive Australian Title at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway, in addition to showing strong pace and consistency throughout the season despite limited appearances, picking up five feature-race wins from eight starts.

2. Robbie Stewart (Qld)
A standout competitor all season, Stewart capitalised on his experience in the Queensland Title, qualifying in pole position and going on to take a comfortable victory and his third career Queensland Title crown at Maryborough Speedway. This result came off the back of an impressive and convincing runner-up finish in the Australian Title.

3. Justin Paull (Vic)
Winning the Victorian Title at Rushworth Speedway in convincing fashion, Paull continued to impress throughout the season, making his way into podium contention in the Australian Title at Archerfield Speedway, before greeting the chequered flag in a gallant fourth place, after suffering from overheating issues.

4. Nathan Mathers (Qld)
In what was only his first full season in Compact Speedcars, Mathers was certainly a shining light, continuing to go from strength to strength in 2016-17, completing the Australian Title podium in third, while also scoring a solid fifth-place result in the Queensland Title at Maryborough Speedway. He will no doubt be one to watch in future seasons.

5. Mark Heaton (NSW)
Displaying his consistency throughout the season, Heaton managed to take out the NSW Club Championship, along with the overall A grade point score, while also driving to a pleasing fifth-place finish in the Australian Title.
