For Denso Super Street competitor Graeme Cooper, the Rowe Memorial – to be held this Saturday (November 25) at Calder Park Dragway – is a deeply important event.

“It really does mean a lot. In my first final back in 1980, Andrew Rowe was in the other lane and he beat me,” Cooper explained.

“That was in November of 1980, and he passed away in the opening months of the following year. His brother Wayne is also a good friend, so the meeting does mean a lot.

More than 150 racers battled it out at the Perth Motorplex’s Prestige Lock Service Goldenstates on Saturday (November 11) for round five of the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series, however only one event winner would be found when rain saw the other nine finals unable to be run before the track curfew came into effect.

Nick Panagopoulos was awarded the win in the Super Sedan category, while Beau Higgins and Jack Wasley (Summit Racing Equipment Junior Dragster), Lee Watson and Roger Moorhouse (Denso Super Street), Bryan Finn and Luke Seaton (Modified Bike), James Kemp and Jeff Acton (Modified), Johnny Brecich and Paul Downe (Top Sportsman), Adam Murrihy and Alan Mahnkoph (Supercharged Outlaws), Phil Paton and Justin Townson (Competition Bike), Ralph Lewis and Matt George (Competition) and Jamie Chaisty and Graeme Simms (Super Stock) all made it to the finals of their respective categories before racing was called off.


Police have completed their investigations into an incident at the Perth Motorplex earlier today.

Perth Motorplex is once again open to the public and racing has resumed.

An incident has occurred during racing at the Perth Motorplex this afternoon with a driver taken to hospital.

Police are at the scene and on their advice racing has been suspended until further notice.

Our thoughts are with the driver and their family.
