It's the last chance for revenge this Saturday night at the Robertson Holden International Speedway with the Grand Finale for 2020/21, and what a season it has been!
The Speedway The Inside Dirt King of the Arena Superstock Best Pairs, a relatively new initiative in conjunction with the Manawatu Speedway Club, proved extremely popular last season. Racers will be permitted to choose their own partners, with the remainder drawn at random before racing gets underway. Three races for points will determine the Speedway The Inside Dirt King of the Arena Superstock Best Pairs champion, followed by the Lucas Oil Superstock Series 20 lap race will round out the spectacular Superstock racing for the 2020/21 season.
Stockcars will also hit the dirt after their Motor Machinists Robin Pratt Stockcar Memorial last weekend, and 992p Taylor Lampp the new champion will be looking to continue his winning form at this weekend’s Stockcar hit out. The Travel Smart Season Points Chase will be decided, and current leader 667p Hamish McLeod will be looking to keep his advance on the drivers who are hot on his heels.
A Stockcar teams race with the Manawatu Steelers taking on the Orange Roughies from Meeanee, Napier will add another exciting attraction to the programme! With the Manawatu Steelers consisting of 35p Matt Phippen, 45p Aaron Watson, 79p Kyle Rowe, 177p Jamie Tinetti and 882p Brandon Jurgeleit these drivers will be in full teams racing mode to win against the visitors!
Adding to the exciting programme is the AFC Motorcycles Sidecar Best Pairs which will see some of the country’s best Sidecar combinations pair up and battle it out. The Robertson Holden International Speedway has seen some spectacular Sidecar racing this season, and this championship is set to deliver this high calibre of entertainment for the fans once again!
To end the night Fireworks will light up the sky in a fond farewell to another awesome season of racing at the Robertson Holden International Speedway.
