Gillman lit up Saturday 25th February at Gillman with sidecars taking to the track for the 2023 Safe Fire Electrical SA Speedway Sidecar Championship. Racing was tight as ever with the heat wave relief not cooling down the scorching action on the track.
After a near perfect night with only a second place in the first heat, SA / Vic pair Mark Plaisted and Ben Pitt kept their focus on the prize and held off advances in the final from QLD Tyler Moon and Adam Lovell to take out the night and the Championship. Trailing Moon/ Lovell with just a gap of 0.573 seconds, SA’s Nate Headland and Jaxon Rayner settled for third place after a strong night filled with firsts and one second place. Rounding out the podium in fourth place and making sure the home state held majority standings on it Mark Mitchell / Tony Carter finished only 0.823 off third place.
