Fu­elled up: Speed­way fans will be treated to methanol-gulp­ing, flame-spit­ting, 700-plus horse­power su­per sa­loon ac­tion at Cen­tral Mo­tor Speed­way this weekend with driv­ers such as Paul Wright, right, en­ter­tain­ing crowds. About 30 su­per sa­loons will com­pete for the South Is­land Su­per Sa­loons Cham­pi­onship on the Fri­day night and race again on Satur­day in the Cromwell round of the hotly con­tested Elf Su­per Cup South Is­land Su­per Sa­loon Se­ries. Cen­tral Otago, and par­tic­u­larly Cromwell, is well rep­re­sented, al­though less by driv­ers than by cars. Of the Elf Cup’s cur­rent top seven cars, four have Hyper­mac space-frame chas­sis built by Cromwell-based for­mer Su­per Sa­loon NZ1 driver Shane McIn­tyre. Wright is another rel­a­tive new­comer to Cromwell who, from driv­ing an older chas­sis su­per sa­loon last year in his first sea­son of rac­ing on clay, is now mix­ing it with front run­ners, notch­ing up two fourths in the Dunedin round of the Elf Cup. Cen­tral Mo­tor Speed­way also has for­mer NZ3 Mike Ver­doner of Bal­clutha as a su­per sa­loon con­tracted driver. – Fri­day and Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 7-8 from 6pm.
