The Arno Bay Dirt Circuit Club (ABDCC) held its AGM and Trophy Presentation on Saturday 10th November at Rehns Raceway.
The young guns dominated the Street Stock Class with Jack Grainger edging out Ian Ellis Jnr by 2 points to take out the prize.
The championships were very much a family affair.
Tom Harris won the Modified class whilst his 2 brothers Shane and Hayden were equal 3rd behind Brodie North who was Runner up and Josh Smith came in 4th.
Kate Morgan blitzed the Ladies class with 197 points whilst her father Kym Schmitt was runner up in the Open Wheeler Class.
Current State Champion Taj Lear was placed between Ian and Glen Wedding.
Kalvy Hartwig proved superior by taking out the Open Wheeler class which also earned him the Club Champion and Cliff Harris Memorial Trophy.
Chloe Chenoweth and the 'Flying Kiwi' Laura Beaumont who placed 2nd and 3rd in the Ladies, along with Kate Morgan will be a force to be reckoned with against the men next year.
Rookie of the Year was awarded to Jaylynn McCallum for an impressive 5th in the Modified, a class abundant with a huge amount of competitors and talent.
The Dipstick of the Year Award went to Darren Mead who after being bestowed the honour of leading the Parade lap as a newlywed managed the most spectacular rollover during his race heats.
Club Person of the Year went to Brenton “Buzz” Scholz for his exceptional commentating and commitment to the Club.
Buzz has attended race meetings, committee meetings and Working Bees and travels from Wudinna each time at his own expense.
His dedication has been paramount for years and there are rumours he may be burning rubber on the track in 2019.
Appreciation is extended to all the sponsors, volunteers and supporters of ABDCC for making 2018 such a successful year.
