The Christmas-New Year period is certainly an exciting time for everyone, especially when you are a speedway fan, and Hession’s Auto Parts Grafton Speedway has two nights – December 28 and January 2 – of exciting speedway action on show that is going to be headlined by the V8 Dirt Modifieds.
With the northern region of NSW well known as the hotbed for V8 Dirt Modifieds, a solid field of the region’s drivers, as well as visiting drivers from Queensland, will be running over the two nights on the Monday night of December 28 with the Christmas Cup event and then again on the Saturday night of January 2 with another of fast-paced action.
The V8 Dirt Modifieds, which are 600 plus horsepower V8 machines, have appeared at Grafton Speedway on one occasion earlier this season, and it saw two of the country’s best V8 Dirt Modified racers – Lismore’s Mark Robinson and current and five-time Australian Champion Kevin Britten – fighting it out in what was an exciting battle, which saw Robinson come out on top in the feature race narrowly ahead of Britten. Britten is looking forward to getting back to Grafton Speedway over the two nights in what is going to be a busy Christmas-New Year period of speedway racing for the V8 Dirt Modified class.
Apart from Britten, other V8 Dirt Modified racers looking to put on a show over the two nights of action at Grafton Speedway and finish at the pointy-end of the field are the likes of Chris and Dale Corbett, Christopher Polsen, Joshua Rose, Andrew Firth, Blake Eveleigh, Marley Weller, and young Victorian talent Todd Hobson.
Supporting the V8 Dirt Modifieds on December 28 are the AMCA Nationals, RSA Street Stockers, Production Sedans, RSA Four Cylinder Sedans and RSA Junior Sedans classes, while on January 2, the support classes are going to consist of Wingless Sprints, AMCA Nationals, RSA Street Stockers, Production Sedans, RSA Four Cylinder Sedans and RSA Junior Sedans.
The December 28 race meeting – Christmas Cup – will also see a spectacular fireworks display, which is no doubt going to complement all of the on-track speedway racing action.
