Gallery: A look back at the 23rd Leyburn Sprints


The (quite legendary) Leyburn Historic Sprints were held recently in Queensland and David Frazer was there to catch the action. This year was the 23rd edition of the event and despite having other events quite close by (including the ASBK) there was quite a big crowd. 

This is the first gallery from David for RacerViews, a talented photographer, who is also quite the Evo fan. We hope you enjoy…

For those interested in the outright results, a short blurb is below or click here

Dean Amos has claimed his fifth outright trophy and another record time at the 2018 Historic Leyburn Sprints, but windy and dusty conditions spoiled the Gould V8 driver’s crack at a benchmark sub-40 second run.

Amos lowered his time on the 1.0 kilometre street course to 40.1589 sec., comfortably beating second-placed Michael Von Rappard, who recorded 42.2608 sec. in a Dallara-Suzuki. Steve Woodbridge, in another Dallara, was third with a time of 44.7002 sec.

In the historic section, Keith Carling returned to the top with a 51.0654 sec run in his Tiga sports car.
