Global Challenge This Weekend

Superstock racing once again takes centre stage on Saturday 27th February with the PN PartsWorld 248 Global Challenge at the Robertson Holden International Speedway, as well the Manawatu Adult Ministock Champs and the return of Modifieds, metal-crunching Stockcars and the daredevil Sidecars.

The PN Partsworld 248 Superstock Global Challenge is one of the most hotly contested Superstock titles in the country, and always delivers a night of spectacular racing. Local heroes and Panther teammates 94p William Humphries and 581p Jordan Dare will lead the strong field of drivers looking to keep the title at home. With visiting drivers from Rotorua, Stratford, Kihikihi and Christchurch favourite 19c Malcolm Ngatai making the trip north, this is set to be one high octane night of action.

Defending Manawatu Adult Ministock Champion 44p Dylan Barclay will be looking to make a repeat on his successful 2019/20 title win. Hard charging local competitors 5p Chris Round, 157p Jack Lammas-Martin and 882p Kallum Puklowski will be trying their utmost to keep this title on home soil, but one mistake is all it takes to drop out of the running in this competitive class.

Fat tyres, huge wings and screaming V8 engines all add to the spectacle of the return of Modified racing this Saturday night, featuring the fastest dirt track Modified drivers from around New Zealand including 1nz Brad Lane and 2nz Blair McPhee. A quality field of drivers including John (Jacko) Jackson who is the current Dirt Cup Champion and Wellington Champion, Stratford’s Blair Luscombe, and from Huntly Syd Ferguson who was on the podium at the 2021 Modified Dirt Cup.

The Stockcars will be back out on the track, Stockcar racing this season has been fast and competitive with the local Season Points Chase reflecting this. The daredevil Sidecars round out a full programme of events and are always putting on a spectacular show on for their fans.

The high octane action will be one not to miss at the Robertson Holden International Speedway. Admission prices are $25 for an adult (16 years and over), $10 for children aged 8-15, and $60 for a family pass of 2 adults and up to four children. Kids aged 7 and under are FREE.

Gates for entry are on Waldegrave & Cook Streets and these gates open from 5pm. Gates accept both Cash & EFTPOS Payments (no credit card) but in order to move the line quickly we recommend coming prepared with cash. There will be plenty of food vendors on site which accept cash & EFTPOS payments. Racing gets underway at 6.30pm.
