Record crowd witnesses dramatic weekend at Cabarita

The Cabarita round of the Penrite Australian V8 Superboats Championship provided plenty of surprises across the two days of competition.

Arguably the greatest of those surprises came in Unlimited Superboat, with runaway points leader and reigning champion Slade Stanley coming unstuck for the first time since the debut of his new package at the World Series in 2018.

The ‘Hazardous’ driver inverted his boat whilst holding a comfortable advantage over title rival Phonsy Mullan in the second final.

Big night under lights for Penrite V8 Superboats at Temora

It was no surprise that the annual ‘Colin Parish Memorial’ event saw perhaps the biggest crowd in the history of V8 Superboats at Kennards Hire Park in Temora, the local region - like much of Australia - starved of entertainment over the last 12 challenging months, however they were more than entertained by some outstanding racing, with some epic battles that ran well into the night.

The opening round of the 2020 Penrite Australian V8 Superboats season in front of a big, passionate, Temora crowd saw fantastic racing across all three classes with some standout rookie performances, but under lights no-one could stop local star Slade Stanley from amassing his seventh consecutive Unlimited finals victory, whilst in 400-Class, Justin Roylance weathered an all-out assault from current NZ#2 Sean Rice to claim his second ever outright victory.
