The 146th annual event focused on celebrating rural women. PHOTOS: CAITLIN MILES • By Tom Doudney SPECIAL TREAT: Coewyn Craill, 7, and Marston Cairns, 3, of Leeston, tuck into an ice cream. AFTER MORE than a year without racing, the fast cars and their fans are finally set to return to Leeston’s Ellesmere Speedway. The track’s grand reopening and first meeting of the season will held be on Sunday. The raceway’s redevelopment has taken more than a year and cost about $200,000 – although that figure would be much higher if weren’t for the commitment of the raceway’s managing committee and the wider community. Ellesmere Speedway promotions secretary Bridget Roxburgh said about 11 committee members had spent probably more than 1000 hours working on the track every Sunday since work began in June last year. “All the hours were volunteer, our committee and community have been really generous with providing equipment and we have got engineers and builders on our committee,” she said. She estimated that if it weren’t for the volunteer work and community assistance, the redevelopment would have cost between $1 million and $1.5 million.

NEW AND IMPROVED: Ellesmere Speedway will hold its first meeting in more than a year on Sunday after being redevelopment.

Mrs Roxburgh said the redevelopment would provide better views for spectators and allow the track to comply with new health and safety standards. Mrs Roxburgh said being unable to use the track for racing last season had been financially difficult and the length of its closure was not originally planned. “Half of the concrete partitions were donated from the Timaru speedway when they closed down, which gave us the motivation to start,” she said. “We were going to do half, then race, and then do half the next off season but we decided to keep going because we got funding from the New Zealand Community Trust.” The meeting on Sunday will include TQs, V8 modifieds, midget sprintcars, quarter midgets, six-cylinder, six-shooter, motocross, production saloons and modified sprints. Club patron Shirley Burt will be cutting the ribbon to mark the reopening. •Advertising feature, pages 18-19 LINCOLN’S FINEST SUBDIVISION and Live in Lincoln present ...
