Mate vs mate on drag strip

Tablelands Advertiser - - SPORT - Bron­wyn Wheatcroft

BLOW out the cob­webs and head to Spring­mount Race­way at Ar­riga to­mor­row for the first Test and Tune event for 2018.

Driv­ers will get the chance to pre­pare for the sea­son ahead and test their cars in prepa­ra­tion for the North­ern Nats on the first week­end of May.

Spring­mount Race­way man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Evan Yelavich said they will be do­ing things a bit dif­fer­ently this year.

“This year we are run­ning events a lit­tle later and start­ing races at 2pm un­til about 9pm,” he said.

“We have all of our new light­ing in place now.”

He said to­mor­row’s Race Ya Mate event at the track 20 min­utes south of Ma­reeba will set the scene for a good year.

“We call these events Race Ya Mate be­cause it is a pre­cur­sor where peo­ple can come out and blow out their cob­webs and see how their ve­hi­cles are run­ning be­fore com­pe­ti­tions start,” he said.

“Come out line up against your mate or any­one else we line you up with.

“There is no com­pe­ti­tion this round.”

He said it is also a chance for driv­ers to go out and do tests but not ac­tu­ally race any­one. All nom­i­na­tions are done on­line at the Spring­mount Race­way web­site at www.spring­moun­trace­
