Biggest event in speedway history

THE Mareeba Speedway will come alive this Saturday, September 19 with the venues biggest event to date set to make its mark.

Saturday night will come alive with the deafening roar of racing with over 1000 spectators set to watch the biggest speedway event ever held in Mareeba.

Over 20 cars will be making the trip from Queensland’s southeast corner to participate in some of the races and even two title races Mareeba Speedway Vice President Tim Smith is excited to be a part of the biggest race meet the speedway has ever seen.

“Basically we have put all the big classes on to make it the biggest show we have ever had in Mareeba by far,” he said.

“We got about 600 people for the last event and that was only a club event so we are expecting more than that for this one.

“This event is really going to open some eyes in Mareeba and see how big speedway racing really is.”

The North Queensland Modified Sedan Title and the North Queensland Formula 500 Title are the two title races that will be taking place on the night with local driver Matt Smith taking his Chrysler Centura for a spin in the modified sedan title race.

“It’s the only car of its kind racing in modified sedans in Australia, the rest are mostly commodores or falcons,” he said.

“It’s great to be a part of the biggest speedway event Mareeba has ever seen.

“It’s going to be great to race against all the other drivers coming from across Queensland.”

Spectators and drivers will get the chance to slow their heart rates with a live band playing after the races.
