16 Tuesday

16 Tuesday November 1 2016 Big season expected at Ruapuna Speedway THIS SUMMER promises to be one of the very best for Ruapuna Speedway competitors and enthusiasts, club president Allan Daly says. The 56th summer of speedway at Ruapuna gets underway on Saturday with the King of the Clay. The centrepiece event of the season is likely to be the 47th New Zealand Sprintcar Championship in January. “We anticipate close on 40 entries for this event,” Mr Daly said. “With the championship allocations being what they are, we may not see this championship in Christchurch for another six years.” Although the crowd-pleasing V8 sprintcars feature prominently in the 13-meeting race calendar, Mr Daly said there would be something for everyone. “We are wrapped to be hosting this summer’s South Island Sidecar Championship,” he said. “We have the South Island Midget Car Championship and the New Zealand Midget Grand Prix, while the TQs, modified sprints and six shooters will all have plenty to race for this summer.” Ruapuna will also host two rounds of the Hydraulink Sprintcar War of the Wings series, as well as the annual Gold Cup and Salute to Goodie events.

Trevor Wishart has shifted back across from Australia and has looked sharp in practices and, with 17 registered Christchurch sprintcars, it’s a big increase.” The midget car class has also had a couple of high profile ‘arrivals’ with former TQ standouts Scott Bailey and Jeremy Webb moving up. Once again, a strong contingent of Selwyn drivers will be regular competitors and Mr Daly said that many of the front runners came from the district. “I’m picking that the likes of midget car racers, Glenn Everett (Lincoln), Dave Kerr (Leeston), Tom Lumsden (Southbridge) and Glen Durie (Rolleston) will be among the front-runners. While in the big V8 sprintcars, you have Shaun Ashton (Leeston), Lindsay Gilbert (Southbridge), Jackson Lovelady (Darfield) and Jason Smith from Rolleston, who are all right at the pointy end of the field.” Mr Daly was also upbeat about the club’s future, with a stadium redevelopment programme in place that will see improvements to the track over the next five years.

Nathan, who was the second seed, beat third seed Duncan McCall (right) 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 in the final. Nathan’s Killinchy club doubles partner, Ben Smith, of Irwell, finished third. Ben, the eighth seed, beat first seed Liam Barrett 7-6, 6-4 in the quarter-final before coming close to upsetting Duncan in the semi-final, losing 3-6, 6-1, 7-5.
