Gillman Speedway was the place to be Saturday, 25th March, with the Speedway Riders Association of SA presenting the 2023 Paintmaster SA Sidecar Cup. Spectators were in for a huge final meeting of the season, with a stacked field of sidecars battling it out for both the main race and also one lap, $500 dash for cash. Adding this with solo racing, flat track solos and packed support categories, resulted in a massive night for one and all.
With cold hard cash on the line, riders were giving it their absolute all to take home the biscuits. After exceptionally tight lap times being thrown down, Shane Rudloff and Scott Morris took home the cash prize with a stellar time of 14.53. Well done lads!!
Nate Headland / Byron Mordaunt had a clean, fast night. After a second-place finish in the first race, they made up for time lost to power through the remaining heats with firsts, to get into the finals and take the top spot. Followed closely in second after a great night of racing, Shane Rudloff / Scott Morris held off Dean Hobbs / Daniel Low, who had to settle for third. After a night of fighting through the packs and qualifying through the Semifinals, Nathan Fleet and Eric Melton rounded out the podium in fourth place.
