Mount Gambier’s Glen Sutherland is once again getting ready for his traditional Boxing Day trek from his home base to Murray Bridge to kick off yet another Clay-Per-View Sprintcar Speedweek. The #S20 Team has been a constant member of the Speedweek tour for many years, dating back to the World Series Sprintcars days, and with the form that Glen has been in this year there is a real possibility that it could be his most successful Speedweek of his Sprintcar career. 

“It’s always been a Christmas tradition for us to race Speedweek. We enjoy racing against the best drivers in the country and the USA. We are really looking forward to having a good week. This season have had great car speed and we been fast. Overall, we have been consistent each night so far and we are starting to gel well as a team” commented Glen as he prepared for the racing ahead. 

His improved speed this season has been especially evident at Murray Bridge, a venue that over the years has not been too kind to the likeable racer. In his two starts he has been extremely fast in qualifying, and he has transferred that speed into a couple of heat wins. But having said that he did have a car destroying wreck at the Bridge after an axle snapped during the Gold Shootout, just emphasising the luck that Glen has experienced at Murray Bridge. 

But if Glen can put all that behind him and get Speedweek off to a competitive start he will then head home with the luxury of knowing he is heading to his favourite stop on the tour full of confidence. But despite the mid-point of the Clay-Per-View Sprintcar Speedweek series being in his own backyard Glen doesn’t believe that it gives him a home track advantage.  

“No, I don’t think it is an advantage to race at home, but Mount Gambier is my favourite track of the four because we get to race in front of my family, friends and some of our biggest supporters. It also allows us to regroup at our home base and get all the car maintenance done on the day off before heading to Avalon.” he added.
