Perry Kyte chalks up yet another win with his recent award of the Queens Service Medal for his services to the Welcome Bay Community and the Spinal Cord Society. Perry and his unique looking 3m Stockcar are etched in the memories of long time speedway followers despite his racing career being cut short by a non racing accident that left him confined to a wheelchair. A video of his investiture is here .
Congratulations and well done Perry.
Another season is fast approaching with some tracks already running practice seasons and while this page has been pretty static for some time I have almost completed a new calendar covering most tracks. Rosebank has the honour of being first SNZ track to green flag the season on the 6th of October with their King of Rosebank meeting. The following weekend on the 12th Palmerston North fires up and from there on it's all on for another summer of competition, celebration, drama, disaster, intrigue, rumours, and whatever else a mix of humans and machines can summon up.
If you are thinking about getting involved in Speedway racing jumping in the deep end by purchasing a car is not always the best option. A lot can be learnt by attaching yourself to an existing team as a crew member. To assist I have a page dedicated to filling or finding suitable positions check it out. The new team being assembled by Terry Brown in Blenheim could offer all sorts of opportunities for both dirt and sealed track experience. Seems the team already has 4 spaceframe Stockcars plus a Rees tanks along with various Saloons.
macgor.co.nz and speedwayads.co.nz are up for grabs, make a decent offer and you could be collecting coins in no time.

The Annual Modified Invasion is always a greatly anticipated meeting at Woodford Glen even though it does signal the demise of the track's current season. This Easter's edition had the extra bait of a face-off between current dual 1nz's Luke Keegan and Jamie Fox on the card. The 22 car field of Modifieds came to wow the crowd and wow they did. All heat races were action packed with great competition between Keegan and Fox along with 13c and 7c for top positions. The weekend ended on finals night with Christchurch local Luke Keegan bringing home the Modified Invasion Series Trophy with 13c David Thompson and 7c Hayden McKay taking 2nd and 3rd respectively. A great way to polish off the season at Woodford Glen.
Full results on the Woodford Glen site and images are available from SR Photography.

With rain today finals night has been set for 4pm Monday 31-12-12

As depicted by the
Sportsweb Photography images above the Huntly TWS Stockcar Teams event that ran Friday and Sunday this past weekend was an absolute spectacle for all the right reasons. Stunning is the only word I can garner to describe the massive hits and resulting carnage. Particularly impressive was the semifinal between the Auckland Alleycats and the Waikato Raiders. Both teams of drivers going at it until the death or serious maiming of their cars. Winner of that match had to face the Manawatu Steelers in the final and sadly for the Alleycats they fell at the final hurdle.The Manawatu Steelers are the deserved champions and masters of their game, that's the cool dudes with the fancy trophy above, and best of all they did it without using confusing team numbers on their cars.There were no dud teams at this event , every team and every driver acquitted themselves well and did their followers proud.
This teams event at Huntly has really cemented itself as a signature event now so if you weren't there make sure you don't make the same mistake next year. 
In other teams events this weekend in Wellington the Nelson Tigers Superstock team tamed the Wellington Wildcats and in retribution the Wellington Young Guns dispatched the Tasman Thunder Stockcar team.
In Christchurch and involving more Stockcar teams it was Ken's Cowboys on the loosing end of the match against the Canterbury Crushers.

The Palmerston North season opener is always keenly anticipated. It signals to the whole country that the new season is well and truly here and ready to roll. It also is often a pointer to the state of the nation with regards competitor numbers particularly in the Superstock and Stockcar classes . This season would seem to be about to deliver a bumper crop of bumpers to the Robertson Holden International Speedway with 30 Superstocks and 90 Stockcars signed up to carry the 'P' after their number. Promoter Bruce Robertson is understandably hopeful the 90 Stockcars won't all turn up on the same night. Stockcar fans will no doubt be hoping they do. Word is the fastest Superstock at practices so far has been 2nz Kerry Humphrey in a car that is 7 or 8 years old but looking brand new.
Also encouraging is the fact that 30 new drivers have to go through the mentor program before they can race. Spare a thought for the scrutineers who have had to greensheet 200 race vehicles and the volunteers organising the whole show . Speedway is definitely alive and well in the Manawatu so get yourself trackside at FMG Stadium Palmerston North this Saturday night at 7pm and see for yourself.

Palmerston North opens this coming weekend (weather allowing) and I'm not ready. With most of the more keenly followed championships being in the 'other' Island this season it's been a tad harder to get enthused. That said there are plenty of likely good meetings to be had in the North so best get stuck into them thus I have been working on my version of a Season Calendar to assist my/your planning. Still a few dates to be added but most of them are there. If I've missed yours then email them to me.
Macgors NZ Speedway is well pleased to have secured the naming rights for the Nth Island Modified Champs set to happen at Rotorua on the 27th & 28th of December. Whether it runs one or two nights will be decided by entry numbers so come on chaps if you've got a Modified get your entry sorted now.
The Macgor's Saloon Series will also be happening at Rotorua again this season. The series is designed to offer incentive for cars that turn up regularly and race sensibly. All credit to the Rotorua club for running the Series .
I'm not sure how busy this page will be this season but major event results will be published when available and there is a real danger I might get carried away with some opinionated dribble from time to time. I'm also happy to publish press release type info should it be sent my way. As always the Discussion Board will without doubt offer plenty of info and entertainment as the season progresses.

Don't forget the Speedway Ads section , times are tough so bag yourself a bargain

Note ! : The  Archives is a good place to look for the older items that used to be on this page
