Smashfest has been so popular over the last few years the stadium has been packed to capacity and thousands without pre-purchased tickets have been turned away. We’re over having to deny anyone a piece of the action. So for the first time ever we’re holding TWO different shows over two nights, Fri 22nd and Sat 23rd April!

Two nights of fender bending spectacular action will include so much adrenalin-packed metal crunching carnage both spectators and participants won’t want to blink. This Easter bring your family and friends to watch the pure unadulterated fun, or drive in the Smashfest bash for cash and be the last car moving to win $10,000!

Speedway kicks off with a bang

Last weekend we saw Huntly Speedway, Waikaraka Park, and Stratford all opening on the Saturday followed by Kihikihi on the Sunday going off with a bang thanks to their opening night Guy Fawkes.

We’re into November now and racing this weekend takes place pretty much everywhere, with plenty of tracks having their opening nights or second and third race nights for the season. I haven’t had a chance to update the Track Event Calendar with all the events, so check your favourite track site or head over to Macgor’s for a pretty decent calendar.

If your after an interesting writeup on Huntly’s opening night (amongst other things) check out Percys NZ Speedway.

That’s all for now. Make sure you go along support your local track and be treated by a great night of racing and maybe even a fireworks display!
