MODLITES

In addition to Terry Leerentveld, who utilised his experience throughout the season to achieve some fantastic results, another four drivers continued to go from strength to strength in the fast-paced Modlites class, cementing their place in our ranking.

1. Terry Leerentveld (Qld)
While he was unable to successfully defend his Australian Title, coming home in fifth, the experienced racer certainly proved his worth in the SA Title, going flag to flag to claim top honours in what was his first ever visit to Whyalla’s Westline Speedway. Leerentveld also collected a satisfying result at Toowoomba’s Hi-Tec Oils Speedway when he managed to go back to back in the Queensland Title, along with finishing third in the NSW Title.

2. Aaron Prosser (Qld)
After qualifying on pole in last season’s Australian Title, before missing out on a podium result, the expat Kiwi was out to prove himself this season and he certainly managed to do just that when he mirrored his qualifying result and led the feature race from start to finish to take a comfortable win. This momentous result, along with a pair of fourth-place finishes in the Queensland and SA Titles earns him the number two spot in our rankings.

3. Danny Prade (SA)
Having tasted feature-race victory this season, Prade was able to keep up his solid form in the title events, qualifying in pole for the SA Title, before taking out the runner-up spot, as well as completing the Australian Title podium in an impressive third.

4. Scott Lehfeldt (Qld)
Achieving his career-best result in 2016-17, Lehfeldt delivered a strong showing in the Australian Title in what can only be described as a bent car, due to an earlier crash. Qualifying on the outside of the front row, he managed to hold on to his position to claim the runner-up spot.

5. Graham Knuckey (SA)
Continuing his consistent form, the middle stages of the season saw Knuckey come away with a pleasing fourth in the Australian Title at Whyalla’s Westline Speedway. While he was in prime position to take out the Queensland Title in March, he couldn’t quite hold off the advances of Leerentveld and was forced to settle for the runner-up spot.
