BRIAN Page has his heart set on a hat-trick.

The Rockhampton champion driver will hit the dirt tomorrow night as speedway action returns to the Rockhampton Showgrounds.

Having won the Central Queensland title for the past two years in a row, Page said he was confident of defending his status to keep the number one on his car for another year.

"I'm feeling good and confident as normal," Page said.

"I'm going to go for number three and the hat-trick.

"It all depends on the night on how we'll go with the track conditions and the other drivers."

After kicking off his race season with a second place last meet, Page said he was looking to go one better after adjusting his car to the modified Rocky track.

"The track wasn't quite what I'm used to last meet," he said.

"They put 400 tonne of dirt on it which has changed the surface a little bit and changed the grip and some cars weren't set for it but we've changed the little things like tyre pressure to get it going a bit faster."

Page will have some tough contenders on the track though and said he would be keeping an eye out for the likes of Laurie Storer and a fast-improving Barry Schneider.

"Laurie Storer will be one I'll be watching out for this weekend as well as Trent Langley and Barry Schneider," the super sedan driver said.

"Barry is getting really good and getting up there quite well now.

"It's just about going out and having fun and if you win it's a bonus."

Page wished to thank all of his sponsors for their support as well as the Rockhampton Saloon Car Club for always putting on a fantastic night of racing.
