If you’re a lover of speedway, then you’ll want to make sure you’re sitting trackside at the upcoming Barry Butterworth Classic at Western Springs on Saturday, February 20 (rain date February 21), with racing kicking off at 6.15pm.

The event is a tribute to one of the greatest drivers at the venue of all time, and the race is designed to be just like it was back in the good old days. The fastest qualifier starts at the rear of the field, and selects the person he/she wants to have start beside them. This ensures all the fast guys end up at the tail, and they all have to fight to get to the front — just like Barry did. 

The night will also see the sidecars back, running round three of their series, and it will also be another round of the Champion of Champions Series.
