Welcome to the Frostys Towing Top of the South Speedway
Jacks Tyres - GT Radial
TQ 30 Lapper
28th November 2015
A big night of open wheel action....
This weekend it’s the turn of the open wheel brigade to show their wares at the Frostys Towing Top of the South Speedway. The Jacks Tyres – GT Radial TQ 30 lapper has competitors from Christchurch and Greymouth here to compete for the title against our local hopefuls. The current 2NZ Matthew Leversedge is taking a weekend off of racing his Sprintcar and jumping back in his TQ to try keep the others honest while the 8C car of Jeremy Webb will be another to keep a close eye on as he has once again had some serious pace this season. The race track itself may play a part in the outcome of this seasons 30 lapper as its been one of contrast compared to last season and the locals have started to adapt to it of late. 30 laps is a long way in a TQ however so anything could happen from the drop of the green flag to the checker.
The big brothers of the TQ class the Midgets also get to show us what might be in store here later in the season for their South Island title when they run their first Nelson round of the Equus Southern Midget series here. Next season we have the New Zealand Midget championship here so these rounds of the series are a great opportunity for the South Islanders to get laps in and get their cars dialled in beforehand.
After the sidecars not being able to be run last meeting they will be back again this Saturday to contest the Mark Thorn Memorial so we will see some top class action from these guys once again.
Classes running: Three Quarter Midgets, Midgets, Sidecars, Stockcars, Streetstocks, Youth Ministocks and Production Saloons
