"Big Bad Bert" Claims Australia #2 In Late Model Decider
It’s taken 43 years but this weekend at the Australian Dirt Late Model Championships at Manjimup Speedway Bert Vosbergen claimed hisbest finish at an Australian title in 43 years.
At the end of the main event on Saturday night Bert was standing proudly on the podium in second position, Bert who started the main event out of 9th position drove a calculated race & sat back as the fast pace was set from the drop of the green, on lap 18 at the first yellow light Bert had moved into 6th position hot on the leaders tails & looking to pounce.
The last remaing 12 laps also went green & Bert made his way through proving his fitness would be is biggest asset during the closing stages, as drivers in front of him made mistakes Bert was quick to attack and keep moving up the field to be in second spot & pressing the leader in the closing laps, Bert would have a go on lap 29 but it wasn’t to be, he settled for second accross the line as the fist rised in the air the crowd was cheering “Big Bad Bert”
Quite the opposite weekend for Craig Vosbergen, he brought with him the racers worst nightmare, Bad Luck. Everything went wrong for craig from a slow time trial lap, Craig was challengeing for 3rd position in his first heat race when lapped car suddenly slowed and caused him to take evasive action to avoid contact which ended up with contact to the wall, Heat 2 was better for the team setting the fastest laps of the weekend.
Night 2 for the #12 machine wasnt much better, a slower out of control car rammed into the Worldwide Machinery #12 causing Criag to finish in the infield with a fuel pump belt off, the hit from that car would cause the rest of the nights problems for Craig failing to finish the main event with a broken diff tube.
