There’s a battle looming as the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series returns fro the second time this week at South Coast Raceway in Portland.
Harry Harris and Kylie Tanner are locked in a Super Street fight having met twice in the final round already this season at the Desert Nationals in Alice Springs and South Coast Raceway in November.
Harris has won on both occasions and added a third Christmas Tree in as many events contested with a victory over Garth O’Hehir, himself mounting a strong title challenge, at Mildura Sunset Strip in December.
Already on the 300 points cap for the season, Harris can’t improve his tally allowing those in the chasing pack to catch up ahead of the Grand Final.
But when asked how he has managed his success to date and whether it will continue, he remains guarded.
“To win three in a row is like, how’d I manage that?” he said.
“You just take each round as it comes. How do I keep winning? Luck!
“The Series is set up based on points and not wins so the Championship is still open.
“To win four in a row, there are a lot of tough racers out there. We’ll take it round by round. Team Double H will be at Portland and the Nationals if all goes well so we’ll see what happens.”
The battle resumes at South Coast Raceway with qualifying from 11am Saturday January 16 and eliminations from 10am Sunday January 17. Gates open at 9am. For more information please visit: www.southcoastraceway.com
