Good Friday at Heavy Trax Hire Central Motor Speedway it's down to the wire for a blow-your-socks-off final of the $100,000 2018/19 Sprintcar Hydraulink War of the Wings.
Defending Wow champ Jamie 'Duffman' Duff tops the leader board with 810 points. Nipping at his heels is 19-year-old ‘wunder kid’ Connor Rangi on 784 and don’t rule out Central Motor Speedway’s own Slammin’ Sammy O’Callaghan on 705. In speedway anything can happen and in the blink of an eye Sammy could leapfrog to the lead and title. But you’ve got to be there to catch all the 'Winged Demon' action. Churning out 850+ horsepower, sprintcars are speedway's fastest and arguably most spectacular class. Not that any class comes close to being boring. They all deliver hold onto your hats excitement and high speed, tyre screeching, clay hurling, exhaust bellowing entertainment. On Good Friday you'll get to see low, wide and grunty super saloons and saloons, Commodore powered six shooters (aka wingless sprintcars), enthusiastically driven productions and surprisingly fast and furious youth ministocks with boys and girls between 12 and 16 showing how it's done.
Don't forget Easter Racing continues at Heavy Trax Hire on Easter Sunday with one of the most popular events of the season... the X-Factor Cars and Otago Metals Central DEMOLITION DERBY. As a warm up to this festival of auto destruction there's the Sprintcar King of Cromwell and all classes racing plus a contingent of streetstocks, which is about as hard case as it gets. And if all goes to plan, you'll also be in for some burnout action.
Racing on Good Friday and Easter Sunday starts at 4pm but to grab a parking spot around the track take advantage of gates opening at 2pm. While waiting for racing, use the time to visit the pits (children must be accompanied by an adult) to meet drivers, their crews and also collect free posters.
