WINGLESS SPRINTCARS RACE FOR GP HONOURS

THIS coming Saturday night (November 14) at Castrol Edge Lismore Speedway the annual Wingless Sprintcar Grand Prix over 50 laps will be held.

There will also be support categories with racing for AMCA Nationals Sedans, Production Sedans, Street Stocks, Junior Sedans and National Four Cylinder Sedans.

The Wingless GP holds plenty of interest as one of the regular annual event attractions at the venue and a strong entry list is expected to contest this season's race.

Form drivers ahead of the meeting are Jacob Jolley, who took out the feature race at the season opener (October 17), and last start main event winner two weeks ago Robbie Mazzer.

A series of heats will be held to determine the starting line-up for the 50 lap feature race.

“The Wingless Sprintcar division always provides close and exciting racing and is one of the most competitive divisions we have running at the Lismore Showground venue,” promoter David Lander said.

Track curator Tony Powell will ensure a super fast race strip is awaiting the drivers courtesy of his long hours preparing the surface.

The proper choice of tyre compound will be an important factor for pit crews to predict changing track conditions over the long distance – particularly in the latter stages when tyre wear could play a part.

But, overall, it promises to be an exiting race from a category that has come on in leaps and bounds over the years, introduced as a lower cost entry category for competitors keen to get into Sprintcar racing.

From a very small number, the class has grown to hundreds right across the nation including Tasmania.

Lismore Showground venue opens at 4PM and racing commences at 5:30.

The top gate near the pavilions at the eastern end of the circuit will be the only public admission entry point at this meeting.

This Saturday night's fixture is governed by COVID-19 regulations with no more than 500 people in attendance.
