The local 2022 Hidden Valley Track Championship is drawing to a close with just two rounds to go in the season before the Top End rains arrive. Here are the results and gallery from the recent round four.

Ashley Smith has the Top Eliminator bracket all-but wrapped up championship wise, and capped of round four with another event win with his Camaro, defeating Butch Morrison. A .006 reaction time from Smith and a 8.24 on a 8.20 dial did the job in final.

In the Super Modified final, Chris Moore picked a cherry off the tree in the final with his dragster against tyre torturer Gary Baker. The win gives Baker a 30 point championship lead going in to the penultimate event over Peter Kirkpatrick.

Neither rider in the Modified Bike final can win the track championship, so it was all for bragging rights in the final. They went to Dean Hersey who rode around opponent Heath Costello with a 8.97 on a 8.80 dial in to Costello’s better reacting 9.47 on a 9.10 dial. Mark Tattingham still leads the race for the season title comfortably despite dropping a few points at this event.

No one could beat the police cruiser in Super Street, Theo Karamanidis chopped Matt Connelly’s HQ tonner in the final to lead the championship substantially.

Tony List XE Falcon did the business in Street Car, winning a Holden versus Ford battle in the final against Glenn Harris’ Torana. It was was three final appearances in a row for Harris though, setting him up strongly to win the track championship.

Mark Tattingham made up for his Modified Bike result by claiming the Street Bike win, after out-riding Gary Richards in the final. The win sets Tattingham up for a double championship title win.

The next round of the HVDRA Track Championship is on September 10.
