CASTROL Edge Lismore Speedway promoter David Lander has rescheduled the November 17 washed out Wingless Sprintcar Golden Jubilee 50 lap feature race to March 9, 2019.
Late afternoon rain forced the postponement of the event for the Wingless Sprints and Lander has since been trying to find a suitable date later in the Golden Anniversary season for the postponed race to be held.
“We looked at a couple of options and possible dates and have finally settled on March 9 after speaking with Wingless officials and working the calendar to select the best available date,” Lander said.
This night – and March – now becomes one of the biggest of the season. March 9 also will see the running of the Herne's Freight Services sponsored V8 Dirt Modified Triple 20-lap main events. This will be three feature races on the one programme each to be run over the 20-lap distance. Add to that heats for both V8 Dirt Modifieds and Wingless Sprintcars, plus the 50 lap A-main for Wingless cars and there will be plenty of laps put down on this exciting night.
This show now becomes a wonderful forerunner to later in the month when the time-honoured Australian Speedcar Grand Prix will be held on March 23.
The AGP, first run in 1938, is one of the oldest speedway events in the world and it's coming to Castrol Edge Lismore Speedway for the first time to celebrate the historic Golden Anniversary season.
NEXT MEETING DECEMBER 1
Meanwhile, attention now turns to the next meeting at the Lismore Showground venue, which will be the kids' annual Christmas party on Saturday night, December 1.
This fun-filled night represents a mixture of novelty events and legitimate speedway races.
The fun is push bike races for children of all ages who must come not only with their bike but mandatory helmet to be allowed race entry.
There will also be a very early Festive Season appearance by Santa Claus, which will be highlighted with his legitimate race car drive. There also will be face painting and lots of fun in keeping with the start of December and the annual Festive Season.
The serious part of the night comes with the running of “The Dream” for Production Sedans. Support race car categories also will be featured on December 1.
