The next state title will arguably be the most hotly-contested of the season at Hobart Speedway.
The junior racing is always close and exciting and this year the title will be even more so with top stars and new stars racing together on the track for the first time since the split.
Add to the field multiple Australian junior champion Ardie Jonic who will only increase the intensity. Jonic is the only past winner of this event in the field having tasted victory in 2016.
Top star drivers who have been performing well should see Jayden Triffett, Paige Allison, Mitch Colgan and Cody Gay all eager to challenge. Nate Garwood, Lachlan Robins and Sharni Farrell will certainly be in with a chance and could well upset many of the seasoned competitors.
Stevie Smith is a new star who is in the top ten feature winners for Australia and wants to challenge Jonic and the top stars for outright victory in the 29-car field.
The hard-hitting Bombers will be attacking the track with their unique style of racing as contact is not only allowed but actively encouraged.
Newly-crowned state champion Matty Treweek will endeavor to avoid being a target although this will prove easier said than done.
Nick Penno is fired up in the sprintcars and wants back to back victories. Jason Dawkins, Scott Bissett and Adam Alexander all have blistering car speed at this track and will endeavour to halt Penno taking victory.
Bruce Pitt makes a welcome return after having Adrian Redpath drive his car and helping with the set-up configuration.
Tassie sixes have another huge car count. Luke Wilson took the win last weekend from Dwaine Sonners.
The duo will have to withstand serious challenges from Caide Bryant, Mark Bryant, Paul Howard, Peter Johnson and King of Carrick Claire Johnson.
Also in contention will be Nate McIllwain, Brad Cowen, Todd Russell and Adam Banks who show solid speed at this track and can never be ruled out of contention.
Late models take to the track and will see in-form drivers Matt Farrell and Tim Pike battling Jason Cox and Shaun Kelly who both make a welcome return to the division.
Speedcars have a six-car field however the close quarter battle between Mitchell Freeman and Luke Redpath will continue to be highly entertaining.
Racing will begin at 3.30pm with karts on the infield track.
After a successful state title meeting a fortnight ago the karts still have a solid entry list.
Junior champion Chase Redpath will continue the fierce on-track rivalry with Kaleb Simms.
Ben Harriss is eager to continue his winning form in the 125s, while the seniors will also provide plenty of action.
