New South Wales teenager Kobi Wright will embark on the biggest challenge of his young Sprintcar career as he takes on Australia’s, and a few of America’s, best drivers in the upcoming Clay-Per-View Sprintcar Speedweek. Since stepping up into the pinnacle of the sport from Formula 500’s Wright has only a handful of starts in a 410ci Sprintcar so he will have plenty to learn as he visits the Speedweek venues for the first time in a winged Sprintcar. 

With a lack of racing in Sydney Wright’s starts this season have been limited to the Toowoomba Speedway and Lismore with a best result of 15th in the A-Main at Lismore. His last two starts in the USC Queensland have resulted in B-Main starts, but that can be expected for a youngster just learning what it takes to race in the category. 

The Wright Motorsport Team is not a stranger to Speedweek competition with Andrew Wright having been a contracted World Series Sprintcars competitor in the past. 

For a young driver like Kobi competing in Speedweek will be more of a learning exercise and at the completion of the week you can bet he will have a greater understanding of what it takes to drive these cars fast and on various track conditions as all four tracks have their own distinct characteristics. 

The confirmed driver line-up for all 5 Nights of the 2023/24 Clay-Per-View Sprintcar Speedweek: Aaron Reutzel (USA87), Alex Attard (N53), Brendan Guerin (S96), Brendan Quinn (S14), Brock Hallett (Q5), Chad Ely (S98), Chase Randall (USA9), Daniel Pestka (S27), Glen Sutherland (S20), Jessie Attard (N55), Kobi Wright (N78), Lachlan Caunt (N9), Luke Dillon (S81), Matt Egel (S52), Randy Morgan (Q54), Ryan Jones (S63), Scott Enderl (S11), Tim Hutchins (T7).
