Eight sidecars made the trek to Albany’s Attwell Park Speedway where they raced for the first time since 2010 last Saturday night.

The speedway bikes put on some terrific racing during the heats and then again in the four-lap final.

Josh Wells and his partner Clint Homeswood finished victorious in the final, as they sped away to cross the line 4.382 seconds ahead of Jeff and Jason Bishop.

Ricky Cain and Josh O’Bryan were close behind in third place while Horrie Payne and Matt Reece finished in fourth spot.

Cain and O’Bryan won the B-main to secure a place in the final and earlier in the heat races the combination of Bishop/Bishop claimed two qualifying events.

A thrilling feature race in the formula 125s provided plenty of excitement, as WA champion Braiden Jewell prevailed in the 10-lap final.

Jewell edged out Jacinta Tester by 0.236 seconds while Nathen Tester was close behind in third place.

Shayne Langdon won the 10-lap limited sprintcars final, from fellow local Paul Belfield and the bog stocks feature was taken out by Paul Spink.

Albany’s next meeting will be on January 5, headlined by the Super Sedan Summer Series and the South Coast Classic for modified sedans.
