Great night; great racing 

A quick wrap-up of last night's action at Supercheap Autos Oceanview Family Speedway:

* Congratulations to John "Handbag" Hannon and Bryce Rose (19V) for their win in the Karl Barritt Memorial Sidecars. Two wins and a second place in the heats put them in a run-off with the 21P combo of Glen Murray and Ann Plummer, which the 19V bike won comfortably, then blew a clutch before Handbag and Bryce could do a victory lap. * Who knew that the shaving off of Aaron Rose's beard would make such a difference to the weight of the front of the 34V machine. He pulled wheelstands every race off the start line, including in the run-off for third with Matthew and Derek Ramsay (6P), who took the final place on the podium. * Four wins from four for 2NZ Dion Mooney in the combined Stockcars and Superstocks. That included the Grand Slam, where Mooney bolted on the Hoosier tyres he will use in Palmerston North next weekend when he races for the Nelson Tigers. And we saw the debut of Scooter McIntosh's new Superstock; it looks and sounds awesome, and will be a real flyer once the bugs are ironed out. * Plenty of action (and a few relegations) in both the Youth and Adult Ministocks. Wins were well shared around. * A beautiful night at the Oval by the Ocean, with hardly any wind; great speedway weather. And a very poignant moment at the start of the meeting as competitors paid their own tribute to the late Karl Barritt. It was also great to have Karl's father Clive and his sister Anneka at the meeting, and making the presentations; thank you, and we hope we did Karl's memory justice.

Lastly a big thanks to Pete from Go Slideways for taking on the infield photography role. Eugene was at a wedding, although he did make a cameo appearance later in the evening. Thanks for the awesome photos Pete, and we know there are a whole lot more to come.
