BANNOCKBURN driver James Aranyosi will be out to extend his lead in the formula 500 stampede series at Laang Speedway tomorrow night.
The 23-year-old concretor has laid a strong foundation heading into tomorrow’s night round six, the half-way point in the series.
Aranyosi, who holds a 93-point lead in the standings, is one of 20 drivers entered for the event. He will start favourite with Mat Turner, the second-placed driver in the series, also entered.
A host of south-west drivers including Leigh Van Ginneken and Dale Sinclair are among the entries.
Laang Speedway publicity officer Alistair McKean said a number of drivers were likely to enter on the night, adding to the intrigue.
He said the formula 500s were also racing for the Grant Sealey Memorial trophy, a prestigious prize that had been transferred from South Australia to Laang for the first time. Laang had been Sealey’s favourite track.
The 20-lap formula 500 A main is the feature of tomorrow’s night fixture, with Victorian Mini Sprints returning to the track for the first time in two years. Super rods and junior sedans are also on the program.
