Brooke's back on board

Just over 2 months ago Brooke Tatnell became the first Australian to win a World of Outlaws (the unofficial World Championship of Sprintcar Racing) Feature Race.

This weekend he will climb aboard the Aussiefast Transport/STP Sprintcar and reunite with the Disbury team when they unleash the two Craft Disbury Racing machines for the first time this season in the Aussiefast Sprintcar Cup at Murray Bridge Speedway.

Tatnell, who flew into Australia earlier this week from America who has previously tasted success at the Murray Bridge venue on three occasions from four visits rates the track as one of his favourites. "It really brings you back to the old style of racing, get up over the wheel and work the car around. It's not all about car set up or horsepower you've got to work the car around the little bullring," said Tatnell this afternoon.

While he didn't expect top be back in the seat so fast after returning from America he couldn't resist the opportunity to re-unite with Disbury and his team. "I learnt a few years ago it (racing) was all about having fun, when you lose that fun, you might as well not be doing it anymore and the Disbury team are a real fun team to be around," commented Tatnell. "Hey any car owner that can still have a smile on his face after I've torn his car up in my first drive for has got to understand the meaning of fun."

"Hopefully though we have got over our rough romance and this weekend it will all be roses," Tatnell smiled.

While Tatnell has been back into the swing of things preparing his inventory for his own campaign on the World Series Sprintcar Championship the Craft Disbury team have been polishing their car with Eagle One products to ensure it looks a treat this weekend.

Former World Series Champion, Brad "Hollywood" Heywood will give his PK Automotive powered Eagle a shakedown this weekend aboard the other Craft Disbury Racing entry to ensure all cobwebs are ironed out before the start of the World Series Sprintcar Championship in two weeks.

"I raced at Murray Bridge last year for the first time and it's a nice little race track, I'm really looking forward to getting back their this weekend," Heywood comments.

Along with the two immaculate Aussiefast Transport/STP Sprintcars this weekend spectators should keep an eye out for the Aussiefast Angels throughout the evening.

Racing at Murray Bridge Speedway will begin at 7:00pm after the gates are opened at 5:30pm.

Murray Bridge Speedway is located on the Northern side of the Murray River on the first bitumen road on the right across the bridge. From Adelaide Murray Bridge is approximately 45 minutes from Adelaide.
