Robbie Farr looks for two in one in Saturday USC Chase Finale
Robbie Farr is in a position to create history this Saturday night at Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway.
The gritty veteran can steer his ECP Racing #7 Cool into the record books by possibly winning both the USC Chase Series and the NSW USC Championship in the one season.
With crewmembers Nick Speed and Neil Kelly the trio could also possibly steal an incredible three-title feat with the QLD USC Championship also up for grabs at Hi-Tec Oils Speedway Toowoomba.
Milperra born and bred but Gold Coast based Farr has a narrow lead in both the USC NSW and USC Chase Series as the final round of Sprintcars for the 2016/2017 season at Valvoline Raceway is held this Saturday night April 8.
He also leads the USC QLD narrowly ahead of Brisbane throttle stomper Luke Oldfield as the Championship comes down to the wire on Easter Good Friday.
There are no less than six different drivers who could score the USC QLD win.
With eight main event successes this season and with the possibility of the three USC crowns has he done anything different?
“Nothing wholesale in terms of changes,” Farr explains, “this year is probably a mirror of our consistency last season to be honest. We haven’t changed anything too dramatically we’ve just cemented our position. There hasn’t been any set strategy to do that, we’ve just worked hard and it’s paid off.”
Farr’s closest adversaries in The Chase Series this Saturday night are Sydneysider Sam Walsh and Tasmanians Shaun Dobson with Walsh suffering a body blow last Saturday when he was crashed out of the main event whilst looking at a possible podium finish.
Had he been able to finish in the top three whilst points leader Farr finished a disappointing ninth it may have really put the pressure on this Saturday.
“Sammy” also sits in third place in the USC Championship just two points behind the ever-consistent and 2015 Track Champion James Thompson in second place.
Whilst Walsh has scored several main event wins and last Saturday night re-set his own one lap track record Thompson has consistently flown under the radar in his black and green #22 machine.
