Club day focus will be points

Points are on the line in a club day at the Awapuni track of Gisborne Speedway Club tomorrow.

All classes will compete in a 21-race programme in the afternoon and early evening.

The action at Eastland Group Raceway begins at 3pm and includes stockcars, streetstocks, sidecars, saloons, production saloons, youth ministocks and TQs.

Club president Clyde McGrory said the gate price had been reduced because only local cars would be racing.

“We've kept the price down to give everyone a chance to come out and have a look.”

McGrory said the competition had been “pretty stiff” for points in the stockcars main and feature points competitions.

“This a good opportunity for the drivers to accumulate some extra points.

“All the races tomorrow will be for club points.

“The production saloon class has also been running pretty close for points.

“It's been a hard season for the club, a really difficult one to date because of Covid.

“We've been able to run only three meetings out of the seven we had planned to this point of the season.

“But we want to keep our season going despite the Covid difficulties, so we're hoping the fans will come out tomorrow and support us.

“We are mindful of the impending weather, but hope we will get our programme done before Cody turns up.

“The public will also be invited to come into the pits before the start of the meeting, and afterwards as usual, providing everyone is double-vaccinated.”

The gates will open at 2pm tomorrow.
