A seven round Wingless Sprintcar series will be held throughout January culminating with the annual running of the 100 lap Grand Prix at Castrol Edge Lismore Speedway on January 24.
Lismore Showground venue will host six of the seven rounds commencing on January 1 at the circuit. Grafton Speedway comes into the schedule for round two the following night (January 2), while Lismore has scheduled January 9, 12, 16 and the Australia Day two night spectacular January 23 and 24 as fixtures for the tournament.
The annual running of the 100-lap Wingless Sprintcar Grand Prix will bring down the curtain on the series
It represents a very busy time high time of the season for the northern New South Wales Wingless Sprintcar contingent in what promises to be a very competitive tournament with good entry numbers anticipated. Provided COVID-19 restrictions doesn't get in the way, Queensland representation is anticipated.
The series has already attracted plenty of corporate sponsorship interest with Lismore Speedway, Lismore Nissan, Cutting Edge Mowers, BH Contracting and Mahindra Tractors on-board as backers.
It's a tough schedule with seven meetings in three weeks and organisers are still finalising a prize money pool and overall grand final winner's payout. There are early indications the overall total purse on offer will make this an attractive series with some good money to be won.
The series is structured to showcase the annual 100-lap Grand Prix (January 24) as the big prize at the end of the seven rounds.
“On paper, this looks exciting for the Wingless Sprintcars and I'm sure there will be a good line-up for each of the rounds. The plan to have the 100 lapper as the grand final will work well and, as a stand-alone promotion of its own, it adds plenty of interest to the series,” promoter David Lander said.
