Bell chimes in for third
Vasse’s own Kevin Bell has come third at the annual WA Super Sedan State Titles in Narrogin.
Chris Pavlich from Mt Barker was the winner with Perth’s Greg “Dusty” Higgs second.
Entrants come from all over WA, from Broome to Albany, to compete for dirt-track bragging rights.
Twenty cars were nominated for the 35-lap final, with the three drivers separating from the pack early.
“It was a great race track with a lot of dust. We separated from one another and overtook one another a few times but Chris was lucky enough to finish in front,” Bell said.
The family man said he was looking forward to racing against his son who will drive his old car when the super sedans come to Margaret River, the only time relatives can watch him race.
“Brad Ludlow has been building this car for two years with 100 years of experience handed down through the generations,” he said.
“Of course I would like to have won, although I hadn’t driven the car too often, it was a close race.”
The next meeting is in Collie tomorrow while Bell has one eye on the April National Championships in Victoria. “It’s a great car with a lot of potential. I’ll have to see if we should go to nationals,” he said.
The humble Bell dedicated the race to his close friend Bert Vosbergen who attended the event despite being treated for terminal cancer.
“He’s the perfect example of the most dedicated race car driver,” he said.
