This Saturday night at Latrobe Speedway, two of the toughest state titles will run on the same program.
Sprintcars are the fastest cars on clay and the excitement will reach fever pitch as they fight it out in the Tasmanian Sprintcar Championship.
Jason Redpath is fresh from a win in last weekend’s South Pacific Classic and Chris Johns didn’t compete last weekend so he could go all out to win the championship.
He has really been in form in his last several outings at Latrobe, and is eager to add the state title to his resume.
Jason Dawkins has nominated, however he destroyed his chassis last weekend, and will be in a massive race against time to make the meeting.
Former champion Kurt Luttrell has had an up and down season with some amazingly fast laps and, if it goes his way, will be a viable contender.
Mark House, Gerry Hoekstra, Callum Zizek and Adam Alexander are also fast enough to take the win.
With so many realistic opportunities for victory, the racing is definitely going to be hard and fast.
A huge field of 30 has the entered Tasmanian Streetstock Championship, and more than half the field could be in the line for a podium, so choosing a winner will be harder than solving a Japanese crossword.
Sentimental favourite Todd Auton has entered, and while he admits he isn’t at full race fitness, the wily veteran can never be ruled out.
Troy Russell and Corey Bauld have both been in fine form in recent weeks and will be joined by Matt Hammond and Jarrod Rogers in a quest for the championship.
The Riley family are always fast and their contingent includes Ben Riley, Dale Riley Junior, John Riley and Mark Riley.
The support programme includes Tassie sixes which have been dominated by Cameron Briggs, but Dwayne Sonners can match his car speed, and is keen to challenge along with Mick Davey and Peter Johnston.
Modifieds often bang panels yet very rarely bring each other unstuck which always keeps the crowd entertained.
Brendan Mitchell won his first feature last week for the Des Redburn Memorial and is eager to back it up with another win.
Justin Richardson won last weekend in the AMCAs but he will be challenged by Andrew Ryder, Adrian Bassett and his father Rodney.
Speedcars had a successful weekend at their state title with very close racing between the locals.
The karts have another massive field and start proceedings on the infield track from 4pm.
Racing on the main track starts at 6pm.
