As part of Western Springs being inclusive to all forms of Speedway, this Saturday night we welcome the Speedway Flat Track riders for the South Pacific Flat Track Motorcycle Championship. Amongst the entrants for this event is Moto X Champion Blake Gillard, Super Motard Champion Toby Summers, Road Race Ace Dave Cole and current NZ land speed record holder Scotty Wilkins.
With some of our regular visiting Midgets away this weekend in Stratford and a couple of other drivers out injured, we have taken the chance to mix things up a bit by changing the racing format. Drivers will draw for grids then race over two heats in a draw and reverse format before transferring into an A or B dash, followed by one final feature race. This format will see the top drivers facing off in both the heats, the A dash and finally the feature, so plenty of opportunities to measure up against each other ahead of the looming NZ Midget Championship.
The TQ Midgets and F2 Midgets are racing for the Auckland Championship crown, with strong fields entered for both these events.
The F2 section has produced some fantastic racing this year and has turned up a different feature winner every night, so this title really could be anyone's.
Sprintcars also mix it up a little this week with teams racing between an Auckland team and a North Island selection. Pickens, Allard and McDonald will face off against Larsen, Cooper and O'Connor. Here is a chance for drivers to really show their pace and settle some arguments without having to deal with a full field of traffic.
If you are a Motorbike rider, this week you can ride your bike into The Stadium, park in the secure bike parking and then ride a lap in the Grand Parade, all for just 20 bucks!
Come along and grab this unique opportunity while enjoying the best Speedway action and entertainment in the county.
