An International Flavour!
Over the years there have been many international visitors who have made their way to our shores, and that tradition is set to continue this weekend with the John Day Speedcar Classic attracting a lot of attention.
This year we are lucky enough to have two American drivers heading across the pond to compete for glory in this weekend’s inaugural event.
Many West Australians would be familiar with Alex Bright, the Pennsylvania local who has been venturing down to Australia for a number of years where he has raced for some high profile teams, including his current ride in the Graham Jones Racing #4 machine.
Turning twenty seven years old this month, Bright has had success in Australia before, winning the Magic Man 34 race at the Perth Motorplex, as well as collecting three podium finishes in three years at the Australian Titles.
Now back once again, Alex is hungry for another victory, but will of course have to face a stout field of competitors determined to flex their muscles and defeat him.
Joining Alex in the International visitor’s category is the second American visitor for the race, none other than Paola, Kansas native Tucker Klaasmeyer, who will be piloting the Bennett Motorsports #7 machine.
Klaasmeyer has been racing since the age of 16, where he began to race more once he entered high school. Upon graduating he became more focused and has since had some significant results, regularly featuring strongly in POWRi races.
Now, at the age of 22 and on his first visit to Australia, Tucker is keen to take in the best tracks Western Australia has to offer, to enjoy the local hospitality and be competitive in every race he is entered in!
With two international competitors and a whole host of other drivers ready to out their best foot forward, the Di Candilo Steel City John Day Speedcar Classic is going to be one event you won’t want to miss!
