    With team fox racing closing shop I'm not sure Brown has another drive just yet.

    There is no Pickens in the field for the Brisbane show (yet). However he has nominated for the Midget 42 at toowoomba speedbowl on feb7/8 so i'm guessing he will join the field for the 2nd Australian round in Lismore. Going to be an outstanding 3 weekends of midget racing

    Should be a great show - great to see for Australian Speedcar racing.
    Shame that the Brisbane rounds are also said to be the "Australian Midget Championship - when there is no such thing.
    The only Australian Speedcar (Midget) Championship has just been held in Adelaide and goes back to the 1930s.
    No wonder Speedway is treated as the "poor relation" and even a "circus act" by the rest of motor sport!!
    This "bodgie" title does nothing for the credibility of our sport.

    yes we all know that when ever the words "title" or "championship" shows up someones underwear gets tired in a knot....
    I dont think anyone is under any illusion as to this event being an actually Australian title where the winner carries A1.

    I believe the first year this "midget championship" was run it was originally promoted as the "Australian midget open" just like the sprintcar race held in brisbane.

    I think also some people might be getting confused with the wording. it should have a break in it

    Powri (governing body)
    Lucas Oils Australia (naming rights sponsor)
    World Midget Championship (event name)


    but no matter what the name is, it is going to be 2 of the best midget/speedcar...... race nights i think ever seen in australia

    No!!
    Last season the event was promoted as the "Australian Midget Championship".
    The year as part of the POWRi World Midget Championship the weekend also incorporates the "Australian Midget Championship".
    They have even sucked in the POWRi guys as one of their releases mentions Nathan Smee as the Australian Midget Champion.
    I have no problems with the World Midget Championship as it is being run over 4 rounds in New Zealand, 4 rounds in Oz and 6 or 8 rounds in America.
    That's fine - but there is no such thing as the Australian Midget Championship.
    I rest my case.

    One of the best shows I have ever seen at Archerfield!
    Was there both nights and saw cars running high and low on a well-prepared track.
    High speed action - heats and features included.
    Has to be a shot in the arm for Queensland midget racing, if not Australia.
    It was that good. Hope the POWRI World championship is back next year.
