LISMORE SPEEDWAY GETS INTO THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT

CASTROL Edge Lismore Speedway is getting into the Festive Season early with its annual Kids' Christmas Party and Santa Claus appearance as part of its racing programme this Saturday night (December 1).

It's a night of fun and frivolity in the countdown to Christmas where the children take centre stage with their own events.

The Kids push bike races are always a highlight and they're on the programme again this year. Children of all ages are welcome to enter provided they bring with them the mandatory safety head gear helmet. Without that, they will not be allowed to compete.

There also will be face painting and other attractions for the kids in what will be a carnival atmosphere at the ground.

“It might be early in December, but it's not too early to put on a kids Christmas party and get into the Festive Season spirit,” promoter David Lander said.

“We want this to be a night enjoyed by the whole family because December really does herald the run into Christmas and the big day later this month.”

Santa will also be in attendance for the kids and in what will be a very special attraction, he will definitely try his hand at speedway car racing!!

It's all part of the fun, where the serious side of speedway and the hard core racing that goes with it, shares the billing with novelty events in keeping with the kids party celebration.

There will still be plenty of on track action headlining with Production Sedans and the running of their annual “Dream” main event.

There also will be a number of support divisions featuring Compact Speedcars, Street Stocks, Four Cylinder Sedans, Junior Sedans and Wingless Sprints.

The Wingless Sprints will contest round two of the Lismore Workers Club Driver to America series.

Promoter Lander will once again allow all children under 12 free admission to his venue this Saturday night. Gates open at 4PM and racing commences at 5:30PM.
