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!
