CASTROL Edge Lismore Speedway promoter David Lander has reshuffled dates on his 2021-2022 calendar with a further emphasis on V8 Dirt Modifieds.
The category will now compete at the December 4 annual kids' Christmas party fixture which will be highlighted with wheelie bin and push bike races as well as an appearance by Santa Claus.
It looms as one of the biggest family entertainment meetings of the season with the added attraction of V8 Dirt Modified racing. The kids' show has created plenty of interest since its introduction some years ago and is one of the most popular nights on the annual calendar.
Still on the V8 Dirt Modified theme, David also has decided to move the NSW V8 Dirt Modified Championship to the continued high time of the season over the new year period, Saturday, February 5.
“That comes off the back of V8 Dirt appearances over the Christmas-January busy time,” David explained.
V8 Dirt Modifieds also will be featured on the April 2 programme, sharing the top billing with Late Models.
The V8 Dirt Modifieds are set for eight meetings during the upcoming season following a revamp of the calendar.
Another calendar adjustment involves the World Series Sprintcars Championship round. The date will now be a mid week fixture set for Wednesday, January 12, while the rain date will be the following night (January 13).
This season represents variety-plus with appearances by not only V8 Dirt Modifieds, but also Super Sedans in addition to Sprintcars and the addition of Late Models to the fixture list as well as all the regular appearances by support classes.
The season opens with the traditional running of the V8 Dirt Modified Lord Mayor's Cup on Saturday, November 6.
