10th September 1988, Ringwood, Bill Boarer Memorial
Report from Short Circuit, November 1988

First stop for the midgets in September was Ringwood on the 10th where Harry Lowe made a welcome return to the victory rostrum winning the Bill Boarer memorial in convincing fashion. Harry made the most of his blue grading to take the lead on lap three and quickly opened up a half lap margin on his pursuers. Basil Craske looked to be the driver most likely to offer any real challenge to Lowe but he had quite a tussle with Dave Wesbroom and Harry Sayell before he slotted into second place and set off after the leader. With both drivers lapping at the same speed and Lowe having no problems passing backmarkers he was able to maintain his advantage to the flag. Sayell finished third ahead of Wesbroom, Steve Jobson and David Shreeve.

The supporting races provided a brace of wins for Craske. In the first race Shreeve opened up a healthy lead in the early stages and despite the chasing pack containing Craske, Sayell, Wesbroom and Brake closing the gap, he was on for his first win, Inexperience told though when he left his braking too late, drifting wide on the pit bend to let the pack throught and dropping to fifth with Lowe sixth. Basil had an easy win in the final leading home Wesbroom, Lowe, Jobson, Brake and Sayell.
