SPRINTCAR driver Robbie Farr will be shooting for a clean sweep when the Lucky Sevens series hits Charlton Raceway on Saturday night.

Farr is the driver to beat after taking out the first two rounds in Maryborough and Brisbane.

But he said he wasn't expecting an easy passage in the final round.

"It's been a good couple of weeks ... but they're always hard races, never easy," Farr said.

"You're always confident and hope to end up winning the race but the competition level in Queensland is tough.

"Last week was a really tough race. We had to work our way to the front and defend the lead. I expect Toowoomba to be the same."

Farr has enjoyed a great record at Charlton Raceway and said he was looking forward to another spin around the Toowoomba track.

"Toowoomba has been a great track for me," he said.

"I've hardly lost a race there over the last couple of years and I enjoy racing there."

But Farr won't be the only driver who is familiar with the track.

Withcott's Peter Lack has finished third in each of the two Lucky Sevens rounds and will be fired up on his home track.

"Lacky's been on it really good. There's six or eight cars that can win the race," Farr said.

"It's not just driving these cars. There's a whole lot of variables and the setup on the night.

"You need everything to go right. The boys have been doing a great job with the setup.

"I've got the form of the last two weeks behind me."

The weather has been cruel to race fans this summer with the last two meetings at Charlton Raceway washed out.

But Farr said he wasn't going to spend too much time worry about the chance of storms.

"I'm over trying to guess the weather in Queensland," he said.

"I just got on the plane and drive up the hill and see what happens."

Saturday's exciting speedway program also features speedcars AMCAs, juniors and compacts.

Main gates open at 4pm with racing from 5.30pm.
