There’s set to be plenty of action in late February at Waikaraka Family Speedway, with around $16K in prize and appearance money up for grabs. February 20 will see the Modified Grand Prix in action, in which drivers will not only get the chance to settle old rivalries but also be in with a chance to take home their share of $4K. Almost 30 cars are already entered and will provide a great spectacle for the crowd as they race for victory. While hometown hero Jamie ‘Foxy’ Fox is known as the man to beat at Waikaraka, he’ll have his work cut out for him to stay at the head of the pack with that much cash for the taking.
The Modified Dirt Cup a week later, on February 27, will see the prize pool boost up to almost $12K, the largest on offer in the sport.
Then the ever-popular Teams Nationals will hit the Waikaraka clay on March 4 and 5. The event will see eight top teams from around the country, including the Palmerston Panthers, the Nelson Tigers, the Gisborne Giants, and the Baypark Busters, face off for national bragging rights.
