Next Up - King of the Arena

King of the Arena is next up on the agenda at the Robertson Holden International Speedway, held over Friday 29th and Saturday 30th November from 6:30pm both nights. A new initiative in conjunction with the Manawatu Speedway Club, King of the Arena features an individual title for Stockcars and best pairs titles for Superstocks and Sidecars.

A huge field from around the country will see qualifying heats for the Steve's Appliance Spares Stockcar King of the Arena on Friday night, with a last-chance repechage and finals for the top 30 Stockcars on Saturday. The field is packed with talent, including current 1nz Tyler Walker and a number of rapid regular visitors such as 5w Josh Prentice and 6v Dion Mooney. Those to watch from further afield include 317c Jay Holtham and 991c Harley Robb, while local hopes rest with the likes of 15p Luke Miers, 82p Roydon Winstanley and 172p Daniel Burmeister.

A full field of Superstocks will compete for the Auto Interiors King of the Arena Superstock Best Pairs, accumulating points over six races held across both nights. Racers will be permitted to choose their own partners with the remainder drawn at random before racing gets underway. The experienced Red Waka teammates Wayne Hemi and Jordan Dare are back in action this weekend, while father-daughter duo Graeme Barr and Rebecca Barr have already had good track time this season and are looking sharp. Another one to watch will be former national champion William Humphries in his radical new machine. Drivers if you have someone you would like to pair with for this event, please email pnspeedway@xtra.co.nz to confirm your pairing.

Sidecars have already had their pairings selected for the Gary Douglas Engineers King of the Arena Sidecar Best Pairs and are ready to battle it out over the weekend. Recent winners of the Ray Tarrant Memorial, Rob Miller and Red George will be tough to beat paired with the rapid Glen Murray and Ann Plummer, but the field is packed with quality so anything could happen. Palmerston North is home to some of the fastest and most experienced riders and swingers which make for spectacular racing.

Adult Ministocks complete the race programme on Friday night, with Historic Stockcars and Youth Ministocks on Saturday. Admission prices are Adults $25 (16 years and over), $10 for children aged 8-15, and $60 for a family pass of 2 adults and up to four children. 7 and under are FREE.
