The scorching late December day set the mood for a night full of action packed Speedway racing, with 2022 fast coming to a close, as Gillman hosted one of the biggest action packed events to close the year. Both local and Australian talent went up against absolute exceptional international athletes, all vying for the 2022 FIM Oceania Championships title prestige.
Fast paced, down to the line racing didn’t disappoint with UKs own 2021 British Speedway Champion Adam Ellis taking top spot from New South Wales’ 2017 World Champion, Jason Doyle in second and Western Australia’s adopted son, UK 3 time World Speedway Champion, Tai Woffinden.
South Australian champions were mixing it with the best with Brayden McGuinness rounding out the night in fifth place overall with 10 points, trailed by Fraser Bowes in sixth, Jake Turner in tenth, Liam May trailing closely 14th, Steve Graetz in 16th and SA’s Teagan Peddler receiving a last minute call up as a reserves but unfortunately not getting a ride in the main event.
Victoria’s Jackson Milner took a huge fall in race 22 requiring medical attention and a trip to the hospital. We are exceptionally happy to report he has been discharged and returned home but is looking forward, as we are for him to come back and take on Gillman again.
