A must see event on the speedway calendar! All the big names are coming in an extravaganza of open wheel excitement and entertainment. Big horsepower, big wheel, big budget Sprintcars, Super Saloons, Midgets and Three Quarter Midgets will set McDonalds Kihikihi Speedway alight March 14!
This annual Sprintcar spectacular honours the legacy of Andrew, his familys’ dedication to the sport, club and greater speedway community. Previous winners include Waikatos’ own open wheel superstar Daniel Thomas and Midget legend and Sprintcar ace Michael Pickens. Other podium finishers that are looking to grab the top spot for the first time include current New Zealand champ Manawatu’s Jamie Larsen and former 1NZ Dean Brindle. A full field of the best competitors from the North Island and maybe a couple from the south are expected to grace this memorial race meeting.
And the action doesn’t stop there. A full field of the best Midget drivers will race the Rosetown Midget 30 Lapper. This race never fails to entertain and if the 25 Lapper raced earlier this season is something to go by, then this race will be worth the entry fee alone! TQ Midgets will race over three heats for the Dusty Rhodes Trophy. Clive ‘Dusty’ Rhodes was a founding member of our 65 year old club and a TQ racing legend therefore this trophy is holds plenty of prestigious value. Also on the program will be the mighty Super Saloons. A rare appearance for this race class at Kihikihi Domain but when they race here, you can be assured of action a plenty. Details of their race format are yet to be decided so keep an eye on our Facebook page and website.
So pack a picnic, bring a blanket, the family and your friends and join us at the home of Waipa’s dirt track action attraction located in the Kihikihi Domain. McDonalds Kihikihi Speedway, family friendly and making memories for 65 years. Only 30 minutes south of Hamilton Central, gates open at 3pm racing starts 5pm sharp!
