Ipswich racer recognised as state's best
MOTORSPORT: The state's best driver Mat Pascoe celebrated his latest series success at the 24th Queensland Annual Super Sedans Association Dinner at the Calamvale Hotel.
Several awards were handed out with one of the highlights being the crowning of Super Sedan Series champion Pascoe. The Willowbank racer had a superb season.
Throughout Australia, Pascoe had 15 wins, four seconds and only three non-finishes due to mechanical problems.
Racing his Sweet Chassis built car, that was a remarkable achievement by someone who helps his fellow competitors at race meetings.
He competed in Queensland meetings in Rockhampton, Bundaberg, Maryborough, Kingaroy, Gympie, Toowoomba and Archerfield, along with events in NSW, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia.
That involved lots of travelling with his fans around the country keen to watch his resurgence in Super Sedan racing.
His backup crew of his brothers Ty and Wade Pascoe were among others making it a team effort.
Ty was recognised as Crew Chief of the Year.
Mat won the latest title from Sean Black, Justin Randall, Wayne Randall and Bob McCosker.
Apart from receiving the Series Champion award, Pascoe also won the Driver's Driver honour.
The Ian Boettcher Race Parts team in Ipswich won the award for Best Presented Car.
The next season starts at Archerfield Speedway on October 13.
