Christmas-New Year thrills set for Grafton

The Christmas-New Year is certainly a busy period for everyone, especially at Hessions Auto Parts Grafton Speedway, where they are going to be holding two exciting race meetings within the space of a week.

Starting with Tuesday night’s (December 28) race meeting, which is called the Christmas Cup, at Grafton Speedway, the popular V8 Dirt Modifieds headline the action for the opening round of the Hessions Auto Parts Super Dirt Week that is offering a prize pool of over $2,500.

The likes of locals Joshua Rose, Andrew Firth, Luke Dunn and Brayd Stephenson, along with out of towners current and five-time Australian Champion Kevin Britten, Mitchell Randall, Scott Cannon, Chris and Dale Corbett, Phil McNamara and Victorian visitor Todd Hobson, are no doubt going to be amongst the front-running contenders.

Supporting the V8 Dirt Modifieds during the Christmas Cup are the following classes: AMCA Nationals, RSA Street Stockers, RSA Four Cylinder Sedans and RSA Junior Sedans.

Completing the busiest time of the season for Grafton Speedway is the January 3 race meeting on the following Monday night. Once again, the V8 Dirt Modifieds are the lead class with the running of the second Super Dirt Week round. In the support-class action, there is the RSA Street Stockers Rumble, along with the AMCA Nationals, RSA Four Cylinder Sedans and RSA Junior Sedans.

To say that there is going to be action aplenty at Grafton Speedway over the Christmas-New Year period would be quite the understatement.

“It’s a very special time of the year for everyone, especially when it comes to speedway and we are going to have a lot of action on offer with two race meetings within the space of a week,” commented Grafton Speedway promoter Mick Corbett.

“We have enjoyed a solid start to the season at Grafton Speedway with both good competitor and spectator numbers, and we are hoping to continue that during the upcoming Christmas-New Year period and headlining act of the always spectacular V8 Dirt Modifieds.”
