To all the drivers, crews and families, we wish you all a prosperous and happy new year.
As you are all now aware, we have had to make another painstaking decision to cancel the AMCA Nationals Australian Title that was to be held at Carrick Speedway Tasmania.
On a more positive note, along with Steve Jessup (Carrick) & Guy Thompson (Latrobe & Hobart Speedway), we have scheduled three tough weekends of racing with good prize pools and trophies.
Week 1: On the 27th February we have the TASMANIAN STATE TITLE at Latrobe Speedway. This will be a hard fought event as we have plenty of capable drivers wanting to take the crown of defending champion, Rohan Blair.
Week 2: The following weekend the 5th and 6th of March, along with Steve Jessup from Carrick Speedway, we have developed the CARRICK CUP. This is two nights of racing with the first night being 2 heats and a final and the second night being two heats and the main final. All points from the four heats and the first final will determine starting position for the Carrick Cup Final. AMCA and Carrick Speedway have sponsored this event with trophies and a $2,000 prize pool.
Week 3: On the 13th of March we head to Hobart International Speedway for the TASMANIA CUP. AMCA Nationals and Guy Thompson have put together another great package sponsoring Trophies and another $2,000 prize pool. This will consist of 3 heats and a major final.
We hope this excites all local and interstate drivers and crews to attend. To any interstate drivers and crews that are interested in making the trip to the Apple Isle if border closures are the reason for not attending the cost of the Ferry is fully refundable. I have been making this trip for years now combining great racing and a family holiday. The hospitality is second to none, we have made fantastic friendships in and out of Speedway. They are the first to offer help with a shed or spanner. To all of you local drivers, get onto it, download the nomination forms and let’s have three weekends of fun.
A personal thankyou to all involved, Garth Stevens, Steve Jessup and officials and Guy Thompson and officials.
See you all soon.
