Dave Yanko Swaps Four Wheels For Two

David Yanko, 2015 Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series runner up in Super Sedan, will lose two wheels at the next National Championship event in his hometown Portland on January 16-17.

A self confessed “bike guy all my life”, Yanko was forced to find a new ride for a local upcoming meet at South Coast Raceway when an errant piston punched a hole through the engine of his Holden HQ Ute.

With encouragement from 2013 Modified Bike Champion and good friend Gavin Dohnt, Yanko went into his shed and pulled out a Ducati that his son had been racing in the Australian BEARS Series and entered Portland’s Golden Bars event.


Jason Climbing The Stares To Championship Glory

December was a good month for Jason Stares in the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series.

The Lucas Oil Corvette driver won his first ever ANDRA Christmas Tree trophy at Mildura Sunset Strip then bookended the month with his second Top Sportsman victory in the Rowe Memorial Super Stock Classic at Calder Park.

With a pair of Christmas Trees on the mantle Stares now hopes to double up again with back-to-back events at South Coast Raceway in Portland then the Australian Nationals back at Calder for the first time since 2001.
