IBRP Gracious Offer Announced at Gala
Posted 12th July, 2016.
On Saturday night at the Lucas Oil Kingaroy Speedway Gala Dinner, Ian Boettcher along with David & Annette Knight shocked the guests with a very generous offer to extend an invitation to Gavin Lorensen and Gavin Fletcher to both drive the Ian Boettcher Race Parts Dominator Super Sedan during the next speedway season along with Series Champion Gary Pagel.
As part of the IBRP Modified Sedan Golden Helmet Series which was won by Gary Pagel, Pagel was presented with his prize which is the drive of a lifetime, to compete in the Ian Boettcher Race Parts Dominator Super Sedan for two fully fledged race meetings as well as a practice night during the upcoming speedway season.
The room then erupted into applause when the surprise offer was then extended to runner up in the series Gavin Lorensen and then again later to third place recipient Gavin Fletcher.
Gary Pagel who has previously competed at the highest levels in Super Sedans was over the moon about winning the series, but was extremely excited to learn that both Gavin’s also now had won the opportunity to drive Boettcher’s Dominator Super Sedan during the upcoming season.
"It is a wonderful gesture by Boettcher’s and just proves what they think about the talent in Modified Sedan racing and shows their ongoing support and commitment to the grass roots speedway sedan racing”, Pagel said.
Both drivers and the hosting club had no idea about this surprise announcement, but both were blown away by the wonderful opportunity heading their way.
The Ian Boettcher Race Parts Golden Helmet Series was held throughout the season exclusively at Lucas Oil Kingaroy Speedway. Some 57 drivers took part in the series which averaged over 30 cars per round. The series was won by Gary Pagel, only two points ahead of Gavin Lorensen. Gavin Fletcher, Greg Worling and Peter Gray rounded out the top five.
On behalf of the South Burnett Speedway Club promoters of Lucas Oil Kingaroy Speedway, we would like to sincerely thank Ian Boettcher Race Parts for their support of this series and their ongoing commitment to Modified Sedan racing and our local speedway club. We look forward to continuing to work with Ian Boettcher Race parts during the years ahead.

2016 Modified Sedan Kings Royal Media Release #1
Posted 17th August, 2015.
The Kings Royal is back bigger than ever in 2016, this time with a new and fresh concept. Kings Royal #4 based on 80 cars will pay out $40,000 in cash with $26,000 of that paid out during the A Main alone. This year’s winner will once again pocket a huge $10,000, but the most important thing for everyone taking part will be that fact that all competitors will be guaranteed a minimum of $200 for turning up and taking part in the biggest Modified Sedan event in the country. Add to this prize money for quick time, for the preliminary features on Saturday night, plus prize money for the dash and pole shuffle winners on the final night, everyone has a chance to pick up some bonus cash along the way.
When is it on
Friday 22nd January, 2016 – Night One
Saturday 23rd January, 2016 – Night Two
Sunday 24th January, 2016 – Night Three
The event will still be held over 3 nights, however night one (Friday Night) now includes a two hour practice session followed by qualifying/time trails. This time trials will carry points for the weekend. After qualifying, night one will be finished on the track, but then we will all head over to the function room at the showgrounds for the Kings Royal Massive Prize draw, Kings Royal Heat Draw, 2 course dinner, Kings Royal Calcutta, Modified Sedan Mini Speedway trivia, plus some live entertainment to kick us on into the night. Gate Admission on Friday is free, along with the practice session for the Modified Sedan drivers will also be free to take part in. The 2 course dinner will have a small cost of only $25 per person which will cover the cost of the meal. This will be a great way to get test out the track, qualify for points, win some impressive prizes and have a low key social night among the Modified Sedan fraternity.
Racing proper then gets underway on Saturday Night with 2 rounds of heats, plus 2 mini features which once again carry all important points.
The South Burnett Speedway Club believes this format will be much more attractive for racers and fans alike without the burden of three fierce nights of competition and more importantly giving the club some flexibility over the weekend in case of mother-nature intervenes once again. The club is always mindful of the costs associated for the competitors at big events like this, so now making night one compulsory to be free to be a part of, adds to the overall competitor friendly moto that has become the norm at Lucas Oil Kingaroy Speedway.
Add to all this, the Kings Royal will once again have a zero dollar nomination fee and the transponder costs will be covered by the club and the showgrounds will have a discounted and very affordable camping prices for the duration of the weekend for those that want to join the growing number of people taking in the entire Kings Royal experience by staying at the track among the “tent city”.

Ian Boettcher Race Parts Golden Helmet Series - Modified Sedans
Posted 11th August, 2015.
Arguably one of the biggest and most exciting prizes in Modified Sedan Series history will be up for grabs for the winner of the Ian Boettcher Race Parts Golden Helmet Series which will be held this season over four massive rounds at Lucas Oil Kingaroy Speedway.
The South Burnett Speedway club is extremely excited to announce that the winner of the Ian Boettcher Race Parts Modified Sedan Golden Helmet Series will win a money can’t buy opportunity, to race in a two meeting deal in the Ian Boettcher Race Parts Super Sedan Generation 3.5 Dominator house car including all their resources, staffing and knowledge alongside Darren Kane who will run in the sister car at these events also.
Putting a price tag on this opportunity is near impossible, but the winner of the IBRP Golden Helmet Series will earn the right to have a test night in the car and then compete at two fully fledged Super Sedan race meetings driving for the Ian Boettcher Race Parts stable, and will only need to simply just turn up in this fully sponsored drive.
“We really wanted to do something for the Modified Sedan division and give someone the opportunity to compete in an all expenses paid ‘multi race meeting deal’ in one of our Super Sedans. Modified Sedans are already so strong and we rate the drivers up among the elite drivers right across the country within the entire sport. Whoever wins the IBRP Golden Helmet Series will certainly be a class act, and we can’t wait to see what they are capable of doing in our Super Sedan” Ian Boettcher Race Parts Director Greg Boettcher stated.
Along with an extensive series prize money payout which will not only reward those at the front, but will also reward consistency, a random prize draw will be held at the end of the series and if you only take part in a couple or rounds of the series you could still potentially win some great prizes. The Ian Boettcher Race Parts Golden Helmet Series will pay out over $40,000 in cash, plus an amazing array of prizes over the four rounds of the one track series. Add to this the money can’t buy experience for the winner, the all expenses paid two race meeting deal in the Boettcher Super Sedan.
“It just isn’t two race meetings for the winner either. It will be a practice night along with the opportunity for the driver to bring his crew along and be a part of the entire experience. They will get the opportunity to work with our team, on our cars at the practice and the two race meetings which will give them some great exposure to our resources, knowledge and technical skills. Everyone at IBRP are all extremely excited about this and can’t wait to see what the lucky winner can do behind the wheel or our Super Sedan.” Greg remarked.
Each round of the series will also pay $1000 to win and have a great pay day down to last place in the feature race netting a minimum of $150 which will be an added incentive. As always, every other driver that simply turns up and takes part in the round will receive $100. Along with this, the top eight drivers will contest a live wire pole shuffle to determine the top four rows in the 25 lap feature race and the pole shuffle winner will pocket a bonus $100 each night for their trouble.
In an attempt to showcase our sport and a way to continue to promote our sedan divisions in a positive light, and celebrate the series that was and our sponsors, the end of series prize money and random series prize draw will be done at the end of season South Burnett Speedway Club Gala Presentation night which has become the clubs night of nights in previous years. Drivers, their crew or a representative will need to be at the Gala Dinner to collect their series prize money and prizes, however for every driver that competes in all four rounds of the series they will receive a complimentary ticket to the end of season Gala Presentation dinner. In addition to this, the club will be giving away additional tickets throughout the year also.
The South Burnett Speedway Club would like to sincerely thank IBRP for joining forces with Lucas Oil Kingaroy Speedway and for giving one lucky person the opportunity of a lifetime to drive the Ian Boettcher Race Parts Dominator Super Sedan at two fully fledged race meetings, and look forward to another huge season of Modified Sedan racing in Kingaroy with the IBRP Golden Helmet Series.

Darren Kane wins an amazing Australian Title
Posted 4th January, 2015.
Darren Kane has passed Jamie Oldfield during the closing stages of a action packed feature race to win the 14th annual Kingaroy Equipment Sales Australian Dirt Late Model Championship. Sydney's Ben Nicastri finished third.
After the rain earlier day, the track was a complete contrast from the previous night which ultimately saw multiple grooves, some big rutts and an extremely hooked up surface in which the lap record was lowered even further to 13.004 seconds in the dash by American Steve Francis.
In the feature race, the battle was intense right throughout the field and the action got underway with Francis getting out to an early lead with Jamie and Warren Oldfield right behind him. As they quickly got into lap traffic the lead changed numerous times, until Francis hit a rutt causing him to plough into the turn one fence ending his unbeaten run over the weekend. By this stage Darren Kane who started from position 9th had worked up to 5th position behind Brad Blake. At the restart, the battle continue to unfold and once again drivers battled the tough conditions at break neck speeds passing each other at will, until Aaron van Zeeland climbed the turn one wall rolling over the q22 machine in turn one bring on the reds. Damage was caused to the catch fence and after a short delay to repay the fence the feature race got back underway with only 14 laps and Jamie Oldfield and Darren Kane become involved in the fight to the flag. Kane ran side by side with Oldfield for laps until on lap 38, Kane was able to get the upper hand and slide through into the lead and hang on to win the Australian Championship. The roar and cheers from the big Lucas Oil Kingaroy Speedway crowd during the race as Kane got into the lead could be heard over the cars and as Kane crossed the chequered flag and as the fireworks lit up the air, the crowd stood as one and gave him a standing ovation he deserved, and in a fitting end of the race, outgoing Australian Champion Brad Blake walked over and presented Darren Kane with an Aussie Flag to take around on his parade lap to once again a huge applause from the massive crowd. Hundreds of people then filled the pits around the podium presentation which rounded out a fantastic weekend of racing at Lucas Oil Kingaroy Speedway.
In other events on Saturday Night Josh Harm won the Proddie feature from Josh Arthur and Russell Cowley. The 4 Cylinder feature was won by Jack Kay, just ahead of Cameron Taylor and Queensland Champion Tim Weir. The AMCA Nationals was taken out by Matt Hardy who also set a new one lap record of 15.643 seconds. With Jason Molle and Steve Potts rounding out the podium. Bundaberg's Casey Collins won the Junior Sedan feature race from Joel Berkley and Ardie Jonic.
The club would like to thank everyone that turned out for the weekend and sincerely thank all the hard working volunteers including the amazing track crew for making this race meeting possible.
The club now has a 3 week break before the biggest Modified Sedan event in the country, the $10,000 win Kings Royal comes to town on 23, 24 and 25 January.
