A near perfect weekend at Hamilton’s Western Speedway over the weekend has rewarded Todd Moule with the top honours in the Victorian Junior Sedan Title.
In only his second season in Junior Sedans, the 15-year-old from Heathcote in central Victoria reached new heights in his speedway career by taking out his maiden Victorian Title win. This result topped his third-place finish in the National Title at Maryborough Speedway in Queensland earlier this season.
“To win the Victorian Title is an amazing feeling and something my family and I are very proud of,” expressed the driver of the DS # 14 Mainland DynoLog Dynamometers supported Mitsubishi Lancer, who finished sixth in last season’s Victorian Title.
“My goal heading into the Victorian Title was to just qualify into the feature race as high as possible, and anything after that was going to be a bonus.”
Over the two nights of the Victorian Title, Moule was in fantastic form, which resulted in four of five heat-race wins, along with a second-place finish in the remaining heat race he didn’t manage to win.
Starting the Victorian Title deciding feature race from pole position by virtue of being the highest point scorer at the completion of the five rounds of heat races, Moule carried on that form throughout the 25-lap event. Despite a mid-race challenge by South Australian Brad Gartner and momentarily losing control of the lead, Moule controlled the pace and went on to score a comfortable win.
“Heading into the feature race, I was more excited than nervous, as I was just hoping to continue my heat-race form,” he explained.
“Brad (Gartner) gave me a bit of a wake up call during the feature race, but instead of getting overwhelmed and making a mistake, I adjusted my driving for the second half of the race and it rewarded me by taking back the lead quickly and going on to take the biggest win of my speedway career so far.”
It’s been a massive season of highs for Moule, and his hoping to continue that form in the remaining race meetings. Currently leading the JSPA Series point standings, Moule is aiming to consolidate his position in the remaining two rounds: Swan Hill’s Sonic Speedway on May 11 and Ballarat’s Redline Raceway on May 18. The final outing for the season will be at Alexandra Speedway for the Victorian Short Circuit Title for Junior Sedans over the June Long Weekend (June 8 and 9).
