Hobart’s Mountain Dew Ice Raceway will this Saturday night come to life when it hosts the 2009-2010 Tasmanian Super Sedan championship.

After having would have been their final hit out before the title cancelled last weekend at Carrick, this year’s title is set to be the most open affair in recent years, with up to 15 drivers more than capable of taking out honours.

Leading the charge will be fan favourite Mick Nicola, from Victoria, who is making the trek south in an attempt to win the Tasmanian title, one of the very few crowns that has to date eluded the 3 time Australian champion in his glittering career.

Heading the local contingent is another multi national champion in Kevin Purton, who has been on the pace since the get go this season despite suffering mechanical dramas at Latrobe in the season opener.

Local Steven Latham will also be very hard to beat. Having won the season opener, the defending National Pies Series champion will be looking to use the home track advantage and clinch his first state title in the Super Sedan division.

Jarrod Harper, Sam Hughes and defending champion David Nicholls are other who would have to be rated a massive chance, but with the lack of seat time any driver has had this year, it really will be a case of who can get up to speed the quickest on the night takes the box seat.

On the down side. it seems that once again the Tasmanian Super Sedan title will be run and won without arguably the state’s top driver competing, but not by his own choice.

After having his nomination for the event accepted by the TSCF, Brad Smith was later informed that Latrobe Speedway Pty. Ltd. (who are also directors of the Hobart track) had knocked back his entry due to an ongoing, petty dispute.

Smith will instead now be heading to Dubbo Speedway in New South Wales to contest that state’s championship, where he hopes to improve on his top five finish behind Wayne Brims last season.

Racing on Saturday night will begin at 6.00pm on the outside track, with pit gates opening at 3.00pm.
