Davey Watt wins 2017 Australian Solo Speedway Championships opening round at Gillman

Posted:

Queenslander Davey Watt has won the opening round of the 2017 Australian Solo Speedway Championships presented by CBS Bins at Gillman Speedway on Wednesday night.

The popular 38-year-old was clinical in his heat races where he accrued 13 points, only dropping points in his final ride to Victorian Justin Sedgmen, who after surviving a nasty heat one accident with Rohan Tungate, lead the points on 14.

Joining them in the final was former World-Under 21 Team Cup Captain Nick Morris, and 2013 Australian Champion Troy Batchelor, who scrapped into the final by virtue of a semi-final win over Rohan Tungate, Max Fricke and Sam Masters.

Off gate three in the star-studded final, Watt was majestic, and whilst receiving pressure from Sedgmen on laps two and three, greeted the chequered flag first, beating home Sedgmen, Batchelor and Morris.

Though Watt was overjoyed with the opening round victory, he knows it will be business as usual heading into round two in Mildura on Saturday night.

‰ÛÏThere‰Ûªs a far bigger picture and this is only the beginning, but I feel like this is an achievement. This is a track that I‰Ûªve always found hard to feel comfortable on and tonight was the first time I‰Ûªve actually felt comfortable on it.‰Û
