THE Launceston Pacing Club will play host to this year’s Australian Driving Championships next month and Tasmania’s dynamic duo of Gareth Rattray and Ricky Duggan are champing at the bit to take up the challenge against Australia’s best.
All states have selected their representatives and the personnel reads like a who’s who in harness racing.
Gavin Lang and Greg Sugars are names synonymous with harness racing in Victoria so their presence is sure to help lift the profile of the event while Queensland’s Grant Dixon and Shane Graham are also regarded as stars in their state and on the national stage.
Gary Hall and Chris Lewis are household names in Western Australia where rarely a meeting passes without either one producing multiple winning drives.
Ryan Hryhorec and Danielle Hill will represent South Australia while Robert Morris and Lauren Panella have the honour of representing New South Wales.
The event will be held at the UBET Racing Centre in Launceston on November 15 and only the ADC reinsmen and women will be driving at the meeting.
It is hoped the meeting will boast a nine-race card with the winner of the championship to be determined on a point-score basis.
