Brettkelly and Christchurch’s Tom Parker, who are both year 13 student’s at Christchurch Boys’ High School, have been selected in the New Zealand team of four to compete at the Australian Boys’ Amateur Championship in Wollongong, on April 5-7. Previous champions of the tournament include Jason Day, Adam Scott, Stuart Appleby, Grant Waite and Robert Allenby. “It’s pretty cool to know that you’re where they were and to see how far they’ve gone, so if you keep doing what you’re doing then you can get there as well,” Brettkelly said. With just four spots available in the New Zealand team heading across the ditch, remaining at the top of his game has been on his mind in recent months. “Early this year, I had quite a few good results at some good tournaments, so I knew I was close,” Brettkelly said.

SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Tuesday March 7 2017 21 SPORTS Midget champion in race against time ACTION: Defending South Island Midget Car champion David Kerr is hoping to win the title for an eighth time at Ruapuna Speedway on Saturday. PHOTO: BRIAN HOPPING SOUTHBRIDGE’S David Kerr and his team are in what he says is “a race against time” if he is to defend his South Island midget car title this Saturday at Ruapuna Speedway. Kerr, a seven-time winner of the event, said what started off as a persistent misfire was now “a bit of a major” with a strip down of the engine revealing a broken valve seat. “We had been chasing the misfire for a couple of shows. What we have now is an expensive and extensive piece of machining being required,” Kerr said. “I’m quietly confident that we will get the job done but it’s been one of those summers for us with problems.” With his racing future uncertain Kerr, was keen to pull ahead of Trevor Hall who also has seven South Island titles to his name. “We (the team) are all getting busier away from the track and its also getting harder to find sponsorship dollars,” he said. “I can’t really complain too much. I’ve raced in nine South Island titles and won seven, had a second and a dnf (did not finish). There’s a bunch of guys who would do anything to win just one of them, but I’m not ready to hand that old trophy over yet.” Kerr saw Gary Chadwick as a real threat, particularly since he received some help with his car and engine set up from former national champion Peter Hunnibell. “Since those Auckland guys gave him a hand, Gary has been going great. They’ve really got that car sorted but realistically there are others who you would never right off,” he said. “Tom Lumsden (Southbridge), Glen Durie (Rolleston) and Nevil Basalaj (Nelson) all know what it takes to win big events. A lot can happen in a 25-lap race.” •Saturday night’s meeting starts at 6.30pm.
