Huge night of racing ahead

Saturday night’s huge 128-competitor program at Latrobe speedway culminates with their annual fireworks spectacular.

The super sedans drivers are all chasing current Australian Champion Callum Harper and, while Dave Nicholls, Steve Latham Brad Smith and Corey Smith were able to get close to his pace early, Harper stretches the legs on a long run.

Laura Davidson put in her best drive in supers last weekend, taking an early heat win proving she is in form. Adam Beechey returns and is another driver capable of victory.

A massive 16-car sprintcar field will be a hotly contested affair, particularly with Jason Redpath and his brother Adrian proving there are no team orders as the two banged wheels for several laps in their last encounter.

Callum Zizek, Mark House, Nick Penno, Kurt Luttrell and Chris Gallagher are all fired up and more than capable of challenging for victory.

Street stocks racing is going to be hectic with a massive 24-car field. Matt Hammond secured victory in the last encounter. Corey Bauld wants the top of the podium whilst Dale Riley Jr, John Riley and a host of others will be vying for victory.

Formula 500 racing last weekend was of the air with Ben Shadbolt taking the win ahead of some hard chargers like Dylan Beveridge Kristian Kelly and Ricky Weatherill.

Marcus Kelly returns from racing on the mainland and will be champing at the bit to get amongst the front runners.

Tassie sixes have their biggest field of the season and Cameron Briggs has been the driver to beat so far this season.

A massive 40-plus speedway karts will start the racing meeting at 4pm with racing in three classes.

Newcomer Luke Redpath won in the 125 class last time out, while Cooper Stuart will be one to watch in the juniors.

Racing on the main track starts at 6pm
