New look for Geddes at Adelaide

Craig Geddes heads to this weekend’s Rowe Memorial Classic at Adelaide International Raceway fresh from a trip to the US and with a brand-new look.


“Our 2017 Rowe Memorial winning Cavalier has been sold to Chris Soldatos for his daughter Julia to race in the future, so this year we will be defending our title in B/A with our current championship winning dragster,” Geddes explained.


“The car is running our 335 SB2 Chevy and manual transmission and has just had a major upgrade to its look with a full wrap in the DecoGlaze Glass Splashback colours – it really looks amazing.


“Being just back from the USA where we were crewing with comp racing legend David Rampy, we have also picked up some new tips and tricks as well which we will certainly look to put to use this weekend as we chase the Rowe Memorial once again.”


Geddes is the defending Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series Competition Champion after securing his fifth Competition Championship and his fourth in a row last season. In total, he has won six Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series Championships, having also taken one out in Super Gas in 1995. 

Paton looking for South Australian win

Goldenstates Competition Bike top qualifier, runner-up and DD/CB MPH record breaker (169.21mph) Phill Paton is one of more than 180 racers set to visit Adelaide this Saturday, Nov. 23, for the Rowe Memorial.


The event marks the fifth round of Australia’s 2019/2020 Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series and comes just two weeks after Perth’s Goldenstates where Paton went all the way to the Comp Bike final.


Paton has his eyes firmly fixed on the title battle and is currently second in the points standings with four rounds of eleven completed so far.


“I will be sort of sneaking up on the power I can put down, as I am wary of throwing everything at the track straight up – we will start a bit slow and sneak into it. Once the bike hooks up it should be really good, the short time is where I will really need to concentrate.” 

Off the Track: The  real Carroll Shelby story

With the release of the Ford vs. Ferrari movie that features Matt Damon as Carroll Shelby, you might want to expand your knowledge of the famed Texas car driver and designer. The documentary “Shelby American” has just been released on DVD.


This is no fictionalized story, but an accurate documentary with terrific archival footage and interviews with fellow racers and Ford executives along with Shelby’s two sons and grandson. Available through Chassy Media.
