Mountain to roar once more

SPEEDWAY fans need to strap themselves in for one final night of spectacular action trackside at Mothar Mountain as the Gympie Saloon Car Club hosts the final meet of the season this evening.

Headlining the program brimming full of excitement is the Gympie Gold Super Sedan Sizzle, featuring thumping V8s.

Saloon Car Club publicity officer Paul Vella couldn’t contain his enthusiasm about the feature.

“The mountain will roar with these monsters chasing a prize pool of $13,000,” he said.

“The gloves are off and elbows out in the hunt for the top spot on the podium.”

Joining the V8s on the track will be Super Street and Street Sedans, together with the final round of the Performax International ASCF Juniors.

“The juniors will be out to show you who the real kings of the mountain are,” Vella said.

The final night of speedway brings down the curtain on what has been a bumper season for Gympie speedway.

Massive crowds have packed the Gympie track for each meet this season, treated to the region’s best drivers strutting their stuff on the unique challenge that is the Mothar Mountain track.

Gates open at 3pm tonight with the first engines firing up at 4pm.

Adults cost $25, student/concession $20 and kids under 12 can fill the stands for free.

See The Gympie Times next week for a wrap-up and photos from Mothar Mountain’s last outing for the season.
