|Xtreme Teams meeting now set.|
The next meeting at Waikaraka Speedway, on Saturday night 7th February, will
be the Xtreme Stockcar Teams meeting.
Six Stockcar teams from Auckland, Waikato, Tauranga and Rotorua will race in
a unique format that has 9 cars starting the heat races (and the Xtreme
Final) with the fourth car from each team joining the race at two thirds
distance. It is assumed that the driver of the car joining the race late
will be under instructions from his team manager to go and "King" Hit the
race the leader.
Details of the format have been published in earlier newsletters - HERE.
Support classes for the meeting have been difficult to arrange. A good field
of Modifieds as been promised for the night. Originally the $10,000.00
Modified Super Dirt Cup was to have run on the 7th, but a lack of confirmed
entries meant that the $10,000.00 meeting has been cancelled. The ASSCC club
rep for the Streetstock section has arranged for a 20 car field of
Streetstocks to be at the track on Saturday night.
The Stockcars not involved in the Xtreme teams races will have three races
which have a 'Hit to Pass' rule. A field of ATV will make their first
Saturday night foray onto the fast clay of Waikaraka Speedway and a pair of
V8 tractors have been booked to, like the ATVs, have some demonstration
runs. Youth Mini Stox will also be have three races on the night.
Gate prices remain at $12.00 for adults and $6.00 for kids (14 and under
with ID). Family passes are $36.00. Parking outside the main gate is free
and the 24 page programme is $3.00.
