Can Kerry Claim Classic Number Four?




The 2020 Classic field will be riddled with previous Classic Champions, one of whom will be the pilot of the Krikke Motorsport W2 – Kerry Madsen.

Madsen who is the 2005, 2007 and 2008 Classic winner, will return to Warrnambool in search of number four, after finishing third in 2019 and having recorded a further three podium finishes in 2009 (3rd), 2012 (3rd) and 2016 (2nd).

Having recently kicked off his 2019-20 season campaign, that will again include an arduous World Series Sprintcars Tour, with a win in the Western Australian Sprintcar Title, the Mad Man is sure to be one of the pre-Classic favorites, a ranking that should be afforded one of the best drivers in the caper.

Kerry’s American season saw him record two feature race wins during the Knoxville Raceway Track Championship season, as a part of a season that saw him also target all of the Big Events across the USA.

The 2005 Knoxville Raceway Track Champion and four-time Australian Sprintcar Champion will again enjoy the spoils as afforded him aboard the W2 Krikke Motorsport Maxim, which in 2019-20 boasts the support of Transport Equipment Hire, Pumpa Manufacturing, Bunbury Toyota, PWR Performance Products, Mobil, HRP and Maxwill Race Engines.

Joining Madsen in the field will be another of the sports up and coming drivers, Queensland’s Cody Maroske.

Maroske will be behind the wheel of the Erhart Motorsport Q5 Triple X, which will source its horsepower from a Inglis racing Engines package.

The 2020 Classic will be a debut appearance at the event for Maroske although the early signs are that he will lack nothing in car speed as he tackles the Sungold Stadium at the biggest event of the season.

The always immaculately prepared Erhart Motorsport entry will venture to Warrnambool with the support of SP Tools, Mobil 1, Kwana, Team Navy, GW Racing, Woodeson Excavations, Revolution Racegear, Mats Rus and Daimler Trucks Toowoomba.
Mitchell Gee is another driver who will return to Classic duties in 2020, driving the N65 KRE powered Maxim for Gavin Norman.

Gee is no stranger to Sungold Stadium, having competed there for a variety of car owners with some mixed fortunes along the way.

For the 2020 South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic, Gee will be supported by Sydney Karting Warehouse, SOS Maintenance, Badass Graphics, Barellan Freighters and Simpson Racegear.

All race fans are reminded that on-line ticket sales for not only the 2020 South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic but every meeting of the 2019-20 season at Sungold Stadium commenced on October 21.
