ATTENTION now turns to the next meeting at Castrol Edge Lismore Speedway on Saturday, January 9 highlighted with the running of the Mr Modified Series final.
The night represents one of the biggest fixtures of the 2020-21 season also featuring Speedcar racing and a round of the domestic Wingless Sprintcar Series.
The Lismore Nissan sponsored fixture will also have support events for Production and Junior Sedans.
“On paper it looks a superb night and I am sure our loyal fans will see some terrific racing,” promoter David Lander said.
“The annual Mr Modified Series is one of the most keenly contested events on our season calendar, while it's also a good opportunity for Speedcars to tune up for later in the season when I will run the time honoured Australian Speedcar Grand Prix. The Wingless series also has attracted plenty of interest and I am expecting a good entry list for this round.”
Meanwhile, the Mr Modified Series deciding main event will be held over 40 laps after earlier heats have been decided.
The man they all have to beat in this season's Mr Modified Series is Mitch Randall after his impressive performance in the opening round on December 26 (Boxing Day).
Randall completely dominated the card and emerged unbeaten. On that form he will definitely enter the Grand Final as one of the favourites – if not the favourite!
Wingless Sprintcar drivers will chase points in their domestic series which unfortunately got off to a disappointing start after the January 1 opening round was washed out.
The Wingless Sprintcar series is sponsored by Lismore Nissan, Cutting Edge Mowers, BH Contracting and Mahindra Tractors. A good car count is anticipated for the Speedcar events with drivers from NSW and Queensland associations entered.
Speedcar drivers will make the most of their appearance on January 9 in the countdown to their Lismore return on March 20 for the running of the prestigious Australian Speedcar Grand Prix.
The January 9 meeting sets the scene nicely for three days later when 410 Sprintcars hit the Lismore Showground track to contest a round of their Super Sevan Series on January 12.
The early indications are the numbers will be impressive with 26 cars already entered. Stay tuned for more information as news comes to hand on the Sprintcar show.
