SUPER SEDAN 50 LAPPER DATE CHANGE

The 50-lap Golden Jubilee Super Sedan Classic at Castrol Edge Lismore Speedway has had a date change and will now be held later in the season.

The event, celebrating Lismore's 50 consecutive seasons of racing, was originally set down for January 12.

Super Sedans will still be on the originally scheduled January 12 race date, but this will now become a round of the domestic season-long Brims Concrete Super Sedan Series, sanctioned by Queensland's Super Sedan Association (Inc).

The 50 lapper has now been rescheduled for April 6.

It was just a simple matter of mathematics behind the alteration and date swap. At this time of the season, there is so much racing and the original Lismore date clashed with the three massive shows on the national Super Sedan calendar surrounding the annual running of the Apple Isle Grand Prix at Tasmania's Latrobe Speedway.

High car count assurances, regardless of the division, is always a priority with Lismore promoter David Lander in the best interest of quality speedway entertainment for the general public.

When doubts were initially raised for the Super Sedan Golden Jubilee race at Lismore in January, Lander quickly decided to move the 50-lap anniversary event to later in the season after speaking with Super Sedan officials.

“We want to make our 50 lap races in this very important anniversary season high quality spectacles and that means having plenty of cars in the pits,” Lander said.

However, as an indication of the overall depth of the SSA, organisers have assured Lander there will still be enough quality cars for a promotable Super Sedan show on January 12.

With the likes of highly rated national stars Darren Kane, Matt Pascoe and Wayne Randall certain entries, there's no shortage of talent. The January 12 Super Sedan format will consist of three rounds of heats, culminating with a 40-lap feature race.

There will be a marble draw on the track in front of fans for positions one through eight to determine the main event starting order for the first four rows of the grid.

With the move to further back into the season for the Super Sedan 50 lapper, a full strength starting line-up not only from the SSA but also including interstate entrants is guaranteed.

This coming weekend the final round of the Mr Modified Series headlines the January 5 Lismore meeting.
