There’s a fabulous field of two stroke Rotax 125cc engined Quarter Midgets contesting the fifth round of their NSW Series including Portland’s very own Rob Stephenson who is way up in the pointscore.
A good line up of Grand Prix Midgets will be contesting the Bart Wilkinson Memorial at Cullen Bullen which is also round five of their NSW pointscore.
The tiny little Go Karts are also back in four racing categories, standard, modified, outlaws plus the shifters along with the “little things with the big wings” the majic Microsprints who are using the meeting as a warn up for the NSW Championships at Nowra Speedway next month round out the open wheeler category.
Also hot to trot are all of your local stars in their tin top stock cars contesting the yearly pointscore over four heats and possibly five – the series production, the hot RSA Street Stockers direct from Sydney Speedway, the fabulous Four Cylinder sedans and the talented 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 Kings Auto Parts Cullen Bullen Raceway.
