DUNNY DERBY POSTPONED
THE Caravan, Boat and Dunny Derby scheduled for the May 13 fixture at Castrol Edge Lismore Speedway has been postponed.
Promoter David Lander has yet to determine a date when the event will be run, however the May fixture will still be held, with the fabulous, wheel hiking V8 Dirt Modifieds the major attraction.
He said the reason behind the postponement of the derby is due to a lack of entries.
He pointed out that this year’s nominations have been very slow. The entries are well down on numbers compared to previous seasons and he does not want to charge people through the gate for an advertised event that is short on entries with only a few participants.
“I always want to give people value for money and there is simply not enough entries for the Dunny Derby to make it a worthwhile spectacle. I am uncertain when I will run the derby, though we will have plenty of race action on the night of May 13 to satisfy the fans,” Lander said.
He also pointed out that the recent terrible floods in the Northern Rivers region may well have contributed to insufficient entries for this year’s Caravan, Boat and Dunny Derby.
Meanwhile the May 13 meeting will mark the final appearance of the 2016-17 season at the Lismore Showground for the V8 Dirt Modifieds.
The V8 Dirt Modifieds will be supported with racing for Junior Sedans, Production Sedans, Wingless Sprints, Street Stocks, National Four Cylinder Sedans and AMCAs.
