The 2017-18 race season kicked off last Saturday night (21st October) at Baypark Family Speedway, with Chris Cowling behind the wheel of the the #49 Wealleans Corvette.
A smooth night, with no dramas. Finishing 6th and 2nd in the heat races, and a 4th place finish in the feature.
Car is now run in and ready for Bodie to begin his season at Baypark on the 4th of November.
