Speedway final round to explode

THE Gympie Saloon Car Club is preparing for one final blockbuster night this weekend to celebrate one of the most successful seasons of speedway at Mothar Mountain.

Gympie Saloon Car Club publicity officer Paul Vella said Mothar Mountain would “get into gear” for the final round of the 2009/10 season.

“Strap in for a night of action packed racing,” he said.

Fans wanting to hear the rumble of the powerful V8 machines hitting the track will have their wish granted as the Gympie Gold Super Sedan Sizzle headlines the night’s program.

“The mountain will roar with these 700 horsepower monsters,” Vella said.

Drivers will be drawing on all their tricks to come out ahead, with a tempting prize pool of $13,000 up for grabs.

It’s high stakes racing and spectators won’t want to turn away during the battle for top spot on the podium.

Meanwhile, Super Street and Street Sedans will also be making a highly anticipated appearance, while the final round of the Performax International ASCF Juniors will serve to showcase the talent of the future.

Vella summed up the night quite simply by saying: “Big noise, big cars and big action!”

Gates will open at 3pm this Saturday, with racing due to get underway from 4pm.

Cost of admission is adults $25, student/concession $20 and children under 12 free.
