Shepparton’s Geoff Meyers and Dennis Myers finished fourth and fifth respectively in the Australian Grand Prix Midgets Championship at Wangaratta Speedway on Saturday night.
Meyers qualified fourth for the 16-man final, while Myers qualified eighth.
The title was won by New South Welshman Scott Saville ahead of Victorian Ashley Booker and fellow NSW driver Scott Moir.
This was Saville’s first GP Midgets national title, which meant all the top five finishers had won the title at least once in their careers.
All five drivers won heats during the night.
Meyers said he drove well and the car performed well, but it was difficult racing in ‘‘such a classy field’’.
He finished with a first and two thirds in the heats to qualify for the final.
‘‘The conditions were good and it was a really nice temperature and a really nice day for racing, so all that stuff was good,’’ Meyers said.
‘‘I could match it with them, but couldn’t go better.’’
Myers started the night well, finishing second in his first qualifying race, but did not finish his second heat after he tangled with another car while leading and crashed.
‘‘There was a bit of damage, but we were able to patch it up and go again,’’ he said.
Myers finished first in his final heat.
He said he went better than he expected after coming out of retirement for the race and said the field had been ‘‘pretty open’’.
‘‘There were probably 10 cars that would have been worthy winners,’’ he said.
