World Series Sprintcars speed into Quit Bunbury Speedway

The track is set to come alive when Quit Bunbury Speedway hosts a round of World Series Sprintcars this Saturday night.

One of the strongest WSS fields ever to grace the South West venue is on its way to WA after the last round was washed out in Tasmania last weekend.

The battle resumes at Albany Speedway this Friday night before heading to Bunbury on Saturday.

The field is headed up by defending series champion James McFadden who is driving for the WA-based Monte Motorsport team and has 2525 points, ahead of Jamie Veal, who will have plenty of local support, driving for the Bunbury-based Krikke Motorsport, on 2244 points.

The battle between these two drivers is set to go down to the wire in the remaining four rounds that concludes at the Perth Motorplex the following weekend.

Adding some spice to the field is recently-reaffirmed Australian sprintcar champion Kerry Madsen who will fly in this week from America and resume duties for Perth-based Keneric Racing.

Madsen is not a contracted driver in the series but has done most of the rounds and is third in points on 2147.

Another driver that will attract a lot of interest is former national and WSS champion Brooke Tatnell, who will also come back to Australia this week from his American base.

It has been confirmed that Tatnell will be driving for local team Diamond Bay Motorsport for the next two weekends.

Tatnell has the experience and his new team has the equipment to claim top three placings at every round.

Former national champion David Murcott is one of the contracted drivers to keep an eye on - with the Victorian having a strong following here in WA.

He will be joined by fellow Victorians Jack Lee, Jye O'Keefe, Darren Molleonuyux, Queenslanders Kevin Titman and Lachlan McHugh, Mick Saller from NSW, and South Australian pairing Brad Keller and Glen Sutherland.

WA drivers Daniel Harding, Jason Pryde and Mitchell Wormall also return home after being contracted to the series.

Wormall is joined by team mate, Carson Macedo from America.

The number of local drivers for the Bunbury round will be confirmed this week but Jason Kendrick, Brad and Jamie Maiolo, Kaiden Manders and Aldo De Paoli are already locked into the battle.

Limited Sprintcars and Wingless Sprints are also on Saturday night's program.
