Ray Munday wins at 2018 Victorian State Titles

The final major race of the Australian calendar for 2018 was the Victorian State Titles, held at the Knox track in Melbourne with just over 100 entries received. Mother nature played a role this year with unseasonal heavy rain washing out practice and the scheduled 2WD day. The entire event was squeezed into the final day of racing, with the sun and traffic helping the outdoor clay track to groove up perfectly. In 4WD Modified Ray Munday took the TQ from Andrew Selvaggi and 12-year-old Lachlan Munday. In the finals Ray took A1 from Selvaggi after a close battle, with Lachlan Munday taking his first state title A final in A2 to take it to A3. Ray took the win, giving him the overall title from Lachlan, with Selvaggi tieing for third but losing on a countback.

In 2WD 17.5T, Ben Howard, backed up his nationals TQ from six weeks ago. He then took out A1 and A3 for his first Victorian title.

In the 2WD Junior Under 16 17.5T nine budding young racers, including three girls, battled it out for the title of the Junior state champion. The Camilieri brothers have been tearing it up this year, with Claude (12) taking TQ from younger brother Camden (9) with Shelby ‘the floss queen’ Bloss (11) lining up third on the grid. The finals saw Camden take the win from Claude and Shelby after some awesome racing from all the kids.
