To say that the Krikke Motorsport team and their driver Jamie Veal dominated last weekend’s Krikke Boys Shootout at Quit Bunbury Speedway would be quite the understatement, wrapping up their 2017-18 season campaign in the best possible way.
In what was the 21st running of the event, Veal, aboard the WA # 2 Transport Equipment Hire / Pumpa Manufacturing supported Maxim, managed to win Saturday night’s preliminary feature race, before backing it up with Sunday night’s $20,000 feature-race win in impressive fashion.
The Krikke Boys Shootout dominance completed the debut season together for Veal and the Krikke Motorsport team, which included their WA Title victory back in December, which was also their debut outing, and two World Series round wins (Latrobe, Tas and Bunbury, WA) on the way to a second-place finish in the final point standings, along with a preliminary feature-race win at the Australian Championship.

Veal, a first time winner of the event, was rapt to finish on such a high.
“I couldn’t think of a better way to finish our first season together by dominating a race that means so much to the entire Krikke family,” expressed Veal, who picked up the third Krikke Boys Shootout win for the team.
“Our season has been one filled with ups and downs, and to finish it in the way that we have with some solid results is a testament to our team.”
Krikke Motorsport team manager Ryan Krikke echoed his driver’s comments.
“The Krikke Boys Shootout is more than just a race to us, as it’s a celebration of three lives (Darryl, Jason and Shane),” said Krikke.
“Our team has worked so hard this season, despite a range of challenges throughout the summer, but all of their hard work has been rewarded with a strong second half of the season.”
With the 2017-18 season now at a close for the Krikke Motorsport team, they are now looking towards the 2018-19 season.
