Lines Crowned Speedweek Champion As Final Round Rains Out
Jan 1, 2014
Mt. Gambier’s Steven Lines has won the 2013/2-14 ENZED World Series Sprintcars Speedweek as a result of the final round being rained out at Premier Speedway today.

Though Robbie Farr leads the overall series points he doesn’t claim the Speedweek trophy due to the fact that he used his Joker card for the Avalon round and Joker cards do not have an effect on Speedweek standings.

“You can use the Joker for your series points,” explains WSS Competition Director Paul Trengove, “but they don’t have an effect on Speedweek standings.”

For Lines, his consistent Speedweek which included two wins (Speedway City and Avalon) a second place at Murray Bridge and a DNF at Mt. Gambier, netted him the victory from Brooke Tatnell in second, James McFadden third, Brad Keller fourth and Robbie Farr rounding out the top five.

“Obviously it’s a disappointing way to win,” concedes Lines, “but let’s face it we’re going to take the win. Now we’ll focus on heading to Brisbane and the next two weekends there.”

The top ten for the ENZED WSS Speedweek Series, presented by Carline Mufflers and Hog’s Breath Cafe, are:

Steven Lines 1140

Brooke Tatnell 1052

James McFadden 984

Brad Keller 962

Robbie Farr 961

Luke Dillon 931

David Murcott 871

Shane Stewart 845

Kyle Hirst 801

Jamie Veal 769
