Reigning State champion Chris Pavlovich has begun the Super Sedan WA Summer Series in winning fashion, taking out round one at the Narrogin Speedway last Saturday night.

The Mt Barker competitor won his maiden State title at the Narrogin venue last season and his great form at the track continued, as he won the 20-lap feature race in record time.

Starting from the front row in the main event, after earlier claiming a heat race victory, Pavlovich launched straight into the lead and was never headed. He defeated Adrian Geary and Adyme Harvey in the feature race while Tony St Jack (seventh) and Dean Trotter (eighth) also finished inside the top 10.

Round two will be held later this month in Manjimup and the series is also set to visit Pavlovich’s home track in Mt Barker, Les Gorman Park, in April next year.

Pavlovich will defend his crown at Albany’s Attwell Park Speedway on April 11 next year and is likely to be joined by a strong contingent of local drivers. That event will be run in conjunction with the Bert Vosbergen Memorial, run over two nights.

Meanwhile this Saturday, Mt Barker Speedway Club will hold their second meeting of the season highlighted by the running of the Ken Taylor highest points award.

The award will go to the highest point-scoring driver across all divisions, with racing commencing at 1pm.

A strong field of junior sedans, 15 nominations thus far, has entered while super sedans, production sedans, street stocks and formula 125s are also on the program.
