THE big crowd were treated to some ferocious racing in the F500s at the Super Sedan Summer Slam at Rocky Speedway on Saturday night.

In a heat, Phil Roberts made contact with the fence and went into a series of spins, demolishing his chassis. Fortunately, Roberts walked away.

But the night belonged to Mick Pronger. After winning two heats he was behind Matt Fleming, in the feature, but passed him on the outside. Fleming kept coming but Pronger found his line and settled into a nice racing rhythm to run away with the final.

Local racers Anthony Schofields and Tony Smith also made the feature and raced well, finishing sixth and seventh respectively.

And of the local debutants, Richard Tarrant's engine blew up in his first heat.

Joel Josefski started and stayed at the back of the pack in his heats, but he gained valuable racing experience in doing so.

And he did win best presented F500 car for the event.
