THE Port Lincoln Sporting Car Club held their last points meeting for 2019 on Saturday night.

The new novice class consisted of Baylee Stusser, 11-year-old Blade Taylor, special guest and sponsor of the day Sue Lawrie, Laura Beaumont and Chloe Provis.

Provis showed them all how its done and not only took out first for the night but also fastest time for the class.

Street stocks proved every car and every driver is at their most competitive.

All showed speed, skill and concentration with door-to-door racing, taps here and there, and photo finishes.

Stephen Moulden took home first for the night, still cranking his $40 donor engine, as well as the best presented trophy.

Gus Gulino, Allen Hall, Jed Trenowden, Mitchell Sawyer all gave as little room to manouvre as possible.

Mick Betterman managed to finish the whole night on his debut while Simon Stusser unfortunately lost his clutch after practice and was out for the night.

Modifieds consisted of bumper-to-bumper racing from Rhys Cummings, Taj Lear, Jeff Francis and Adam Schmidt.

These guys mean business.

The club warmly welcomed Port Pirie driver Terry Anderson.

After a fair hassling, Schmidt came out on top.

Open wheelers had seven cars begin the day and only Quentin Theodore pulled out after a wheel bearing failure in round one.

Rex Lawrie, Spud Taylor and Jason Buckley were like bulls out the gate and Peter Darling, Chloe Chenoweth and Peter Walker all held their own.

This class has a wide range of different setups, anything goes, and each driver gave it their all.

The club thanked sponsors of the day Rob and Sue Lawrie, club voucher and trophy sponsors of the night and throughout the 2019 season, and all spectators for their support.

The last meeting for the year is the fun day sponsored by Coates Hire on November 16. No points just plenty of track time plus a few special events.

There is also a burnout competition by Lincoln Skids on November 9.

Keep an eye out on the club Facebook pages for updates and meeting times to get involved or go and support.
