Taranaki Midget Championship

It may have been noticed that Ricky hasn't raced much over this season, as behind the scenes there was a lot of prep work being done for Ricky's Wedding and subsequent Honeymoon!  Now home, married and holidayed, what better way to celebrate than to get straight back into the racing!  Although it is past the middle of the season we have a few race meetings lined up, starting with tonight at Stratford Speedway for the Taranaki Midget Championship.

With so much time out of the seat, Ricky was a bit rusty but it didn't take long to work back into his rhythm and by mid-race he was moving through the field for a third place finish.  Race two and Ricky showed that he was well back into form by taking the race win.  With the points being over three heats, the third race was all about finishing in front of local star Dwayne Hickman…and coincidentally the front row was both Dwayne and Ricky side by side!  A great race showing clean side by side racing while pushing hard and dicing with each other.  With the chequered flag dropped, the race victor and consequently the new Taranaki Champion, was Ricky!  What a great way to celebrate being newly married then to return to the track and take out the championship!
