2018/19 New Zealand Three Quarter Midget Grand Prix

February 16 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

This weekend is the turn of the open wheel brigade to hit the Moutere clay here at the Milestone Homes Top of the South Speedway as we host the Waimea Testing Station New Zealand Three Quarter Midget (TQ) Grand Prix. We expect around thirty cars to enter this event as most of the competitors will head north up the state highway after a New Zealand title at Ruapuna in Christchurch the week before. The super-fast Jeremy Webb from Canterbury would have to be a favourite while Alicia McLauchlan, Dylan Stone-Cuthbert and Morgan Frost could be amongst the locals who could do well if everything goes their way. A good North Island contingent is also entered with fast cars and drivers competing from Western Springs in Auckland and Napier, both tracks being strong in TQ racing. Christchurch and Greymouth also have competitors here to try and wrestle the silverware away from the locals. The format will see every driver race each other over a set amount of heats with a second chance B main for the non-qualifiers to make the twenty car 25 lap winner takes all feature race.

This weekend is also the Mark Thorn memorial for the Sidecars. Known as the crazies of speedway these guys have really been the entertainers at the track this season with great numbers and super close racing. This meeting will also be a good practice run before their South Island championship which will be held here on the 9th of March.  We are expecting around thirty bikes here for this top-class event as well.
