This Saturday night South Gippsland will kick up a gear with the Nyora Raceway providing a Sprintcar and Christmas night for all. All of the local clubs’ local champions will also compete in their classes in a great way to enjoy a night out a weekend before Christmas.
The Victorian Speedway council Sprintcars under the Victorian Sprintcar Association banner will compete with the likes of Bairnsdale’s Adam Greenwood, Alistair Bastian and Adam Greenwood doing battle against the Victorian champion Steven Horton. The ‘Kings with Wings’ are always spectacular with passing, speed, and crashes, they are not to be missed.

Beau Stuchbery, Zac Barwise the winner this past weekend at Drouin, Chase Ingram, Blake and Kaine Smith, and Jack and Tom Braz are others to keep an eye on whilst Bryce Leek debuts in the class and has been a top runner in the 1200 Sedans also.
