You just won't want to miss this exciting night for the whole family on Saturday 21st November at the Robertson Holden International Speedway. From the metal crunching mayhem of the 2019/20 Manawatu Stockcar Champs, to the Ray Tarrant Memorial for Sidecars, fast and furious Superstocks, and the Saloons - Corvettes, Mustangs and Camaros all racing door handle to door handle the action will be non stop, add the Manawatu Standard Fireworks Spectacular and you have a recipe for exciting entertainment.
The carnage of the metal-crunching Stockcars will battle it out to take the prestigious title honours after COVID-19 dashed their hopes last season. Local drivers 15p Luke Miers, 82p Roydon Winstanley, 172p Daniel Burmeister are all within grasp of the title after their opening night debuts and showing they are on the pace and up for real contention of the title. The Manawatu Stockcar Championship title has a rich history of past champions which makes this a title that is always hotly contested.
The Ray Tarrant Memorial trophy should draw an excellent field of Sidecars from far and wide. Ray was the announcer here at the Speedway for many years and was an ardent supporter of Sidecars. He was also instrumental in putting together the sponsorship package with 2XS in 1980, which over time has morphed into More FM.
The Saloons are back, racing door handle to door handle in their Mustangs, Corvettes, Commodore V8s and Camaros, these wide-tyred, high-powered race cars are something to really marvel at.
Finishing the night with the Manawatu Standard Fireworks Spectacular, the most impressive and biggest fireworks display in the Manawatu will light up the night sky.
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.
As the new pits are still a work in progress the only gates for entry are on Waldegrave & Pascal Streets and these gates open from 4pm. Gates accept both Cash & EFTPOS Payments (no credit cards) 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.
