MODIFIED SEDANS
 
Yes, we know Mark Carlin was the winner of the Australian Modified Sedans Title earlier this month at Carrick Speedway, but aside from the winner, the 2014-15 event provided plenty of other feel-good stories.
 
Barnstorming Blight
Western Australian Kye Blight was a late inclusion into the field after he was drafted in to drive the Adam Holt-owned Ford Falcon. Holt was unable to compete himself due to a broken wrist. Blight, who finished third in last season’s Australian Title, drove outstanding in unfamiliar equipment to qualify second for the feature race, lead the opening 25 laps and then go on to finish in second. A top effort!

Jacobi Charges Home
Former NSW Champion David Jacobi didn’t have the strongest of runs through his heat races, but still did enough to qualify directly into the feature race out of position 16. Jacobi saved his best performance until last by charging through the field to snare third place on the podium.

Youngster Impresses
Heading into the Australian Title weekend, not much was known of teenager Brodie Boss, but they certainly knew who he was by the end of it. The 17-year-old from Mackay (Qld) performed strongly in his heat races and by virtue of those drives qualified seventh for the feature race. If that wasn’t impressive enough, he moved forward in the feature race and finished in an impressive fourth.

Mills on the Money
A top-five finish and the best presented car award capped a great weekend for Brenton Mills. The Victorian qualified 10th for the Australian Title deciding feature race and then managed to progress forward and go on to round out the top-five finishers.

Allan Who?
Allan Nash is best known as the car owner of two-time Australian Champion Todd Doyle. However, on this occasion, Nash showed his own capabilities behind the wheel to qualify into an outstanding fourth and then go on to finish sixth. This was without a doubt a breakout performance for the Queenslander.

Pacey Parkinson
Ash Parkinson qualified 14th for the feature race but suffered a deflating tyre in the early stages, but pressed on to still finish in eighth. In the process, the former Australian Champion recorded the feature race’s fastest lap. 
 
Gallant Locals  
It was always going to be a tough task to be competitive for the Tasmanians up against the country’s best Modified Sedan racers. In all fairness, the locals simply don’t race enough, or at all, against the likes of Carlin, Blight and co, unless it’s at an Australian Title. Despite the odds being stacked up against them, both Trent Quillerat and youngster Nathan Russell managed to qualify for the feature race. Quillerat and Russell earned their feature-race spots via the B main, after they had finished in third and fourth place respectively (the final two transfer positions). Quillerat suffered a major blow after transferring into the feature race due to suffering mechanical woes aboard his own car, but he was able to jump into the Jason Price-owned car. Quillerat went on to finish 15th, while Russell finished two spots back in 17th.
