A big field of Juniors is expected with Wingless Sprints and Vintage Heavy Weights also supporting the night.
To cap of a great nights racing, fans will be thrilled with the Fiqure 8 Ramp Race. For those of you who have never witnessed the fun and hillarity of a fiqure 8 ramp race, Cars line up in the centre of the field across from the finish line, on the flag drop cars scramble to take the lead with some cars turning left and others right from the centre. On each corner of the track is an elevated ramp, all cars must jump the ramp or be disqualified, quite funny to see 2 cars trying to jump a ramp that will only fit 1 car. Upon returning down the centre strip cars must turn in the opposite direction to form a fiqure eight lap. Many spills are had with cars losing wheels but continuing on, radiators boiling and lots of contact. Sure to be a crowd pleaser. Anyone can participate in this type of race with relatively little cost so if you wish to enter the next Fiqure 8 race to be held on May 10th 2014 make contact with the Mildura Speedway Drivers Club via our Timmis Speedway Facebook site or Angelo Halacas at Autopro Mildura, the more cars the more fun!
