With the June 18/19 event marking the midway point in the five-round series, the battle for the championship titles in each of the Pro Light (KF1), Pro Gearbox (KZ2) and Pro Junior (KF3) categories is heating up.
Fresh from a victory in the most recent round, local driver Jake Spencer leads the way in the chase for the James Courtney trophy, awarded to the Pro Light (KF1) Series Champion.
While Spencer will have the home track advantage next weekend, the JAM Racing driver is very aware of the high quality of opposition that will be snapping at his rear bumper.

"Coming into this year my aim was to win a round. Winning the last round to take over the championship lead has meant that my goals have now moved to bigger ones and I'm very motivated to stay on top of the points standings," said Spencer.
"Todd Road is one of the most physically demanding tracks in the country, so I've stepped up my training and testing since the last round to make sure I'm fully prepared on my home track.
"It's going to be very tough to stay ahead of ADAM HUGHES, who is the reigning Victorian Champion, and CIAN FOTHERGILL, who is the reigning National Champion. There are also a lot of other local Victorians, including my JAM Racing team-mates who know the Todd Road track well." Said JAKE SPENCER.
Practice for the round will be held from 11am on Friday June 17 ahead of qualifying and heat races on Saturday June 18. The Round Finals will be contested on Sunday June 19 from 9am.
