SPEEDWAY AUSTRALIA SPRINTCAR SUPER SERIES SET TO ROCK SA
When COVID-19 robbed Sprintcar fans of World Series Sprintcars for season 2020-21, it seemed like the entire summer may be devoid of high end Sprintcar Action – Wrong!
Speedway Australia were quick to pro-actively commit some funding to three regions, usually associated with hosting World Series Sprintcars, to ensure that the Race Fans and Competitors alike didn’t miss out. South Australia and Victoria are set to turn up the heat at the end of January in what looks like being an exciting ten or eleven days at six different tracks!
With some excellent prizemoney already on offer, a $10,000 bonus for the overall leading points scorer will most definitely sweeten the deal for one lucky team. A further $10,000 to be shared between second, third, fourth and fifth place will act as incentive for those in the points battle to contest each and every night of competition. For every one of the seven main events at the six different venues, 150 points will be awarded to the A-Main victor, with 146 for second, 144 for third etc. with all drivers starting an A, B or C Main to be allocated points!
There will also be a maximum of eight bonus points up for grabs each night as well, with four points to be awarded to the driver who leads the most laps of each A-Main, two points for the fastest lap of the A-Main and two points for the hardcharger of each A-Main.
The race formats will also vary throughout the week, keeping the teams and race fans on their toes and certainly adding some spice to the overall Speedway Australia Super Series action.
The Opening Night of the Sprintcar Super Series will be held at Avalon Raceway as a part of the $5,000 to win 2021 President’s Cup, which always acts as a prestigious heart starter for the Classic week! From there all of the action will move across the border as Borderline Speedway, Mt. Gambier plays host to its 2021 version of the King’s Sprintcar Challenge as presented by Gambier Earth Movers, Stuckey Electrical, OG Roberts and Shelton’s Butchers. A very handy payday of $5,000 to the winner will be on the line at the always-exciting Borderline Speedway Bull Ring!
Rounds three and four will move back into Victoria at Sungold Stadium, Premier Speedway, Warrnambool. South West Conveyancing will present two nights of action-packed racing for the Fifty for 50 events, which will culminate in a 50 lap $15,000 to win A-Main event, to celebrate the Club’s 50th Anniversary at the current Allansford site!
