Sea­son wraps up in spec­tac­u­lar fash­ion

Speedway has fin­ished for an­other year, but not be­fore a fi­nal race in which sev­eral driv­ers came un­stuck.

The Hal­loween meet on Oc­to­ber 31 was well at­tended and spec­ta­tors were treated to plenty of tight rac­ing, en­ter­tain­ing mo­ments and big crashes. Speedway pres­i­dent John Magerl said it was great to see fam­i­lies come along to watch the rac­ing.

“The guys dressed up as a par­rot and Chew­bacca and were a bit sore af­ter be­ing chased around the track by the kids dur­ing the run­ning race,” he said.

“Chantelle Magerl hit the wall with her sprint­car and Mea­gan Couper re­designed her car’s front end.

“One of the cops ac­tu­ally wrote off the car he was driv­ing in the emer­gency ser­vices race.”

Mr Magerl thanked the spec­ta­tors, driv­ers, spon­sors and vol­un­teers for a “great” 2015 sea­son.

The club has one fi­nal meet, with burnouts and a de­mo­li­tion derby on New Year’s Eve.
