WHILE Easter may be a quiet weekend for some, motorsport fans are well-catered for in the Limestone Coast.

Topping the bill again this Easter will be the Borderline Speedway’s penultimate round, night two of the time-honoured Easter Sprintcar Trail on Saturday night.

The Easter Trail always brings plenty of action with it, with night one at Avalon Speedway, night two at the Borderline Speedway and the final night at Warrnambool.

Limestone Coast drivers and teams will look to claim the honours on home clay, with the likes of Glen Sutherland, Daniel Pestka, Parker Scott and Scott Enderl lining up for a shot at the A Main victory.

Sutherland is always fast at home, while Pestka is fresh off a win at the Borderline Speedway with the Stark’s team out of Port MacDonnell.

Pestka claimed the SA Pro Sprint Title back in March and would surely love to take another win home.

Enderl has been around for a while now and is always good for the locals to cheer on, while young Scott is early in his Sprintcar career, but shows a bit of pace already.

Those drivers will face plenty of opposition from the likes of Brock Hallett, who drives a Queensland car, but lives in Portland.

He is a recent Warrnambool Classic winner from a couple of years ago and is certainly hard to beat.

Tasmania has sent over a horder of drivers to take the honours back to the Apple Isle, with Tim Hutchesson keen to chalk up another win before his imminent retirement.

Of course, the young Jock Goodyer, also a Tasmasnian, but based in Warrnambool is always on the pace.

The 23-year-old knows his way around a clay oval and will not back down to the Limestone Coast operators.

Tate Frost is another out of Tasmania, also based in Victoria and is always up the pointy end.

Luke Dillon has recorded fastest times over the last five or six goes in South Australian and Victorian time trials, while up on the border, Grant Anderson comes out of Albury Wodonga and always brings a top-10 pace.

Supporting the Sprintcars will be 18 Super Rods, who run their own Easter Trail and will all look for the win at the Borderline Speedway to keep their weekend alive.

The Wingless Sprints have stepped up as a support class due to the lack of other numbers and are sure to provide some fast and furious action in between Sprintcar heats.

The night will finish off with the traditional fireworks display, which is expected to explode into view around 9,30pm.

Action will kick off from 5pm.
