Off the back of numerous substitutional changes within the team over the off season, Krikke Motorsport are excited to get their 2017-18 season underway this Saturday night, with new driver Jamie Veal set to complete his first hit out with the team in the Western Australian 410 Sprintcar Title at the Perth Motorplex
Having already contested nine race meetings this season behind the wheel of his own car, which have seen him collect multiple feature-race victories, including the Col Beasley Classic and Jackpot Invitational, and numerous podium finishers, Veal is content with his recent form ahead of this Saturday night’s debut aboard the WA # 2 Transport Equipment Hire (TEH) supported Maxim.
“I’m looking forward to finally making my debut with Krikke Motorsport, having joined the team quite some time ago during the off season,” expressed Veal, who has previously worked with Krikke Motorsport crew chief Dylan Buswell and who will be completing the majority of the 410 Sprintcar calendar with the team, excluding a small number of selected shows in his own car.
“Being familiar with Dylan (Buswell), as well as the Maxim chassis, nothing should feel too different when we take to the track on Saturday night. We’ll be having a practice hit out prior to the Western Australian Title, so it will be good to get in the car and make sure that everything’s working as it should be to build up some confidence.
“Despite a few disappointing results, I’m fairly happy with my season form so far so hopefully I can continue that on Saturday night and come away with a good result for the team.”

Krikke Motorsport team manager Ryan Krikke is equally as excited to get the 2017-18 season underway, with the addition of Veal being a much-hyped development for the team.
“A lot of work has gone into this season and we’ve made a number of changes in preparation for it, including a new livery and a new driver in Jamie, so we’re looking forward to a successful season,” said Krikke.
“Jamie is a talented driver, who has already displayed strong form in his own car this season, so we have no doubt that we’ll be able to challenge for the Western Australian Title win.”
