JENKINS SET FOR SYDNEY SIZZLING SUMMER OF SPEED

Speedcars Sizzling Summer of Speed


Sydney’s Troy Jenkins is gearing up for another season sizzler in the Speedcars at Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway and he has set the bar high after what he called a “dour” campaign last summer.

“We were a little bit off the pace last season,” Troy, 46, admitted.

“Other than Brisbane, where I went okay in the World Championship rounds, it was pretty dour and there’s room for improvement.”

Troy did not mince words when he said he is looking for a better showing – and it all starts this coming Saturday night, September 30, at Valvoline Raceway with the 2017-18 season opener.

Troy says he will “concentrate predominantly on Valvoline Raceway this season.”

He will do the full schedule with the Speedcar Association of New South Wales at the venue as well as the Speedcar Super Series round at South Australia’s Borderline Speedway in addition to the two SSS events set down for Valvoline Raceway.

“We will definitely go to Borderline Speedway and then the day after that will race in the Victorian title at Warrnambool.”

Jenkins also is eyeing off a likely start in the time honoured Australian Speedcar Grand Prix that will be run during the 2017-18 term at Gunnedah Speedway.

The AGP takes a very special place in Jenkins’ career after having won the prestigious event three times – 1993 (Sydney Showground), 1997 (Parramatta City Raceway) and 1999 (Newcastle Motordrome.)

Jenkins will again campaign the Spike chassis Toyota powered Speedcar.

Car was new on the track last season and the winter months have been put to good use after the motor was overhauled and refreshed at Sydney’s Graham Racing Development (GRD) organisation.

The long time BOC sponsored driver wants to make this season a good one with the main emphasis being competition at Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway.
