SPEEDWAY fans around Sunraysia will get their fix tomorrow night as Timmis Speedway finally revs back into action.
It’s been a long time between events, with a couple of meetings postponed due to COVID, but Mildura Speedway Drivers Club members will put that all behind them as cars get back on track.
The meeting, the Ross Crick Memorial, is in honour of the speedway’s founding president – Ross Crick.
While there will be plenty of experienced drivers on track, those in attendance will also get to witness the future of speedway in Mildura, with seven local drivers nominating for the event.
A huge field of Wingless Sprints have also nominated, with over 20 drivers putting their hand up for the event, and there will be more than a handful of 360 Sprintcars in competition as well.
AMCAs and Modified Sedans will also be in action.
Mildura Speedway Drivers Club spokesperson Angelo Halacas said it is going to be a great night for everyone.
“Getting back to the track with family and friends to enjoy a great night out is what it is about,” Halacas said.
Ben Aworth, who recently accepted the club’s president role again, said the meeting would be action packed and urged fans to get themselves trackside.
Aworth, who has led the club to successful seasons before, said it is exciting to have speedway back but if he said he wasn’t nervous he would be lying.
“I’ve been president before and wanted to do it again but with a few members standing down due to vaccination issues I’ve had to step again,” he said.
“Tomorrow night starts the season with the Ross Crick Memorial, one of the biggest meets of the season and certainly one the locals strive to win.”
There is action on track from 6pm tomorrow night and tickets can be purchased through www.milduraspeedway.com.
