After last month’s washout,speedway racing at it’s very best,proudly hosted by the Portland District Motor Sports Club returns to the Cullen Bullen Raceway Sunday (April 27th) from 10am right through almost non-stop until around 4pm.
This,the sixth race meeting of the 2013-14 season features a fabulous field of Quarter Midgets,the scaled down Dwarf cars plus the tiny little Go Karts in four racing categories, standard, modified, outlaws and the shifters.
Add to this the return of the amazing Grand Prix Midgets plus a giant step back in speedway history with the Vintage Speedcars and we’ve got one hell of an open wheeler program.
And don’t forget the tin top stock cars contesting the yearly pointscore over four heats and possibly five – the series, super production,the hot new RSA Street Stockers direct from Sydney Speedway and the second drivers plus the juniors all racing for major season points.
Get set for almost six hours of non stop speedway excitement at “the Action Attraction of the Central West” with around fifty events for the tin top stock cars and the very fast open wheelers on the fully resurfaced Cullen Bullen Raceway.
After a huge working bee a month ago the raceway is looking superb so it’s definitely time to get your backside trackside!
Driving stars from Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Mudgee, Bathurst, Blayney, Oberon, Orange, Cowra, Canberra and Nowra will battle it out wheel to wheel on the fully resurfaced oval track and you won’t miss one second of the action – come out and cheer your favourite driver to the chequered flag.
