After a World Series Sprintcars Championship point standings battle that went right down to the final feature race for the 2019-20 season, the Krikke Motorsport team and their driver Kerry Madsen come away with a very strong second place in the points standings.
In last weekend’s World Series Championship Grand Final at the Perth Motorplex in Western Australia, Madsen had a mixed run over the two nights with a third-place finish on Friday and then a DNF on Saturday night. The latter race put paid to his World Series Championship winning hopes there and then.
Both Madsen and Krikke Motorsport fought hard throughout the 14 rounds of this season’s WSS Championship battle but in the end, the point standings battle fittingly came down to the last feature-race of the season. A total of 64 points separated Madsen and leader McFadden heading into Saturday night’s feature race; however, it simply wasn’t to be for Madsen after a broken right-front wheel spindle on lap five saw him forced to a stop and then be towed to the infield and record a DNF.
“It was disappointing to go out the way we did in the World Series chase, but we still had a solid campaign and came up short in the end,” Madsen said, who picked up two wins and nine minor podium finishes throughout this season’s 14-round World Series Championship.
“A massive thanks must go out to everyone associated with the Krikke Motorsport team and they all of played a part in us getting out there and doing what we do around the country.”
The 2019-20 season World Series Sprintcars Championship presentation night was held on Sunday night and the team was highly awarded. They received second place overall, Best Presented Car and Crew, Most Pole Shootout Wins and first year crew chief Matt Cochrane received the highly respected Crew Chief of the Year award which is voted on by his peers. The night topped what was a very solid WSS Championship campaign for the Krikke Motorsport team and their driver Kerry Madsen.
The final 2019-20 season outing for Madsen and the Krikke Motorsport team is going to be this Saturday night’s Krikke Boys Shootout at the team’s home track: Bunbury Speedway.
