    The Goulburn Ovens Sedan association closed their season out at the last Wahgunyah Speedway race meeting of the season, the first ever GOSA 1000 & nineteen competitors showed up to do battle for the cash & the title as first winner the 1000 & it would be Trevor Mills who would win his third feature race in succession to close out the year.

    The GOSA 1000 feature event had a number of local Corowa racers determined to defeat Trevor Mills who had won the last two feature races he had competed in with Daniel McCarten (# 25 ProBar – Falcon) from Thurgoona, Scott Callendar from Albury, Ross Maclean, Jacob Mills, David Walton & Mitch Watts whom all live locally in Corowa, Chelsea Cornelius who fly’s in from Queensland & Thomas Bowers from Wodonga amongst the challengers.

    Starting where he left off the last race meeting he competed in, Trevor Mills (# 10 Ryan’s Refrigerated Transport - Commodore) won heat one ahead of his son Jacob (driving Jason Mills’s race car) & Maclean in third place. Walton in his # 43 Maverick Boats Centura was in fourth place ahead of Paul Barklem driving the race car that was steered to Victoria # 1 the meeting before by Charlie Ball. Behind Barklem was Mick Pettit, Anthony Mitselburg, Mark Gordon, Mick Quinn & Brendan Eames (# 42 Howie Race Engines – Falcon).

    McCarten who was second favourite for many prior to the race then won his first heat from Cornelius (# 76 Cornelius Classic Panels – Commodore), Watts, Bowers, Liam Pooley, Clint Henderson, Callendar & Rob Webster (# 48 Mills Race Fabrications - Commodore).

    A great start to the third heat had Trevor Mills in the lead, then Maclean passing then losing his right rear wheel & earning a tow to the infield. Mills then went on to defeat his son Jacob (# 94 Wahgunyah Rock Yard – Commodore) with Walton third, Barklem, Mitselburg, Pettit, Quinn & Eames rounded out the field.

    Cornelius who pre event was hoping for some better luck then took her first heat victory for some time when she led to the finish line Bowers (# 83 Cartwright Civil – Commodore), Callendar, Henderson & Webster.

    Trevor Mills made it three heat wins from heat starts when he was too good for Callendar (# 24 Jindera Automotive – Falcon) & Maclean in heat five with Henderson, Gordon & Webster the finishers.

    Finally McCarten was the last heat race winner when he got the better of Cornelius in the sixth. Barklem (# 87 Carter Plastering – Commodore) was third then Bowers, Mitselburg, Quinn (# 17 KMA Signs & Signwriting – Commodore) & Eames.

    Before the feature could start local business ‘Hartnett Transport’ had contributed some cash to a pole shuffle in which Trevor Mills who had qualified highest on points, elected not to compete in which relegated himself to outside pole position for the feature race with the winner of the battle for second & third spot earning pole position automatically without needing to challenge Mills.

    McCarten came out on top in the shuffle defeating Cornelius in the final battle & gaining himself the pole spot to start the final.

    The green dropped and using the top end of the track in turn one & two as only he knows how too, Mills swept his way into the lead & set about running twenty laps in the lead. McCarten never looked under any pressure in second whilst in the pack there was a great battle between four or five drivers at times for third place & down.

    Mills went on to become the first winner of the GOSA 1000, McCarten second then Bowers, Barklem, Cornelius, Eames & Mitselburg (# 44 Corowa Glass – Falcon).

    After the race Mills was happy to end the season with a win. “Thank you to all my crew & supporters for their continued assistance. To Helen thank you for enjoying my hobby as much as I do & to the sponsors that put up some cash, thank you for supporting local speedway.” Shared Mills.
