STAGE SET FOR FINAL ROUND OF 2021 NSW FORMULA VEE CHAMPIONSHIP
With entries now closed the stage has been set for the final round of the 2021 NSW Formula Vee Championship at what is looking like a wet weekend at Wakefiled Park Raceway, Goulburn.
2021 has been a challenging year for all race categories however Formula Vee have been fortunate enough to complete 11 races over four rounds held at Sydney Motorsport Park and Wakefield Park Raceway.
With several of the titles still up for grabs Aaron Lee heads into the final round of the open NSW Championship on 183 points giving him a 12 point lead over Michael Kinsella who in turn is just four points in front of John McDonald. Leigh Porter and Paul Lister round out the top five but you can expect to see some movement across these standings in the last round.
In the dedicated 1200 class Championship, veteran racer Stephen Butcher sits on 210 points and holds a 27 point lead over his closest rival Grant Cassell with Bernie Cannon, Greg Johnston and Michael Gale making up the final places.
The Division Two champion will also be decided at the weekend with Paul Lister taking a healthy 59 point lead into the final round where only an act god could change things at the front, however the tussle for second and third place will be closely fought between Greg Johnston, Angus McDonald and Andrew McKinnon after contender Matthew Harriott was forced to sit the round out due to border restrictions.
The final round also see’s several new drivers joining the grid in preparation for what is shaping up to be a good 2022 season, these include Stuart Vaughan who will be steering a 1600 Stinger, Hayden Crossland in a Jacer and Andre Cortes in a 1200 Jabiru. Both Crossland and Cortes join us from the highly competitive Karting scene while Vaughan is a veteran iRacer.
We also welcome back a couple of former competitors returning to the grid including Canberran Peter McDonald and Novacastrian Michael Cooke who are returning after taking some time off.
The final round is set to be a cracker with a strong healthy field, fresh faces and what is set to be some good battles for championship places.
