Burnout To Beat All Burnouts
A late afternoon and evening of tyre screeching, engine revving, exhaust bellowing and smoke billowing spectacle and excitement. What better way to celebrate the return to Level 1 than this Saturday (Sept 29) heading to Heavy Trax Hire Central Motor Speedway in Cromwell’s Sandflat Road for the burnout to beat all burnouts.
“We’ve so many entries from all over the country, with most of these mind-boggling purpose-built burnout vehicles, we decided this rates being called the Central Motor Speedway NZ Burnout Champs 20/21,” explains speedway promoter, Jason Scott. “As in previous years, we’re running this meeting in the late afternoon and evening of the Alexandra Blossom Festival Grand Procession Saturday. As a speedway club, we’ll be further supporting festival entertainment by participating in the parade which at 11.45 heads off down Centennial Ave lead by heavy trucks.
“Should the worst happen and Saturday is returned to Level 2, the club has plans in place to meet crowd restrictions and social separation requirements. Our natural amphitheatre around the track enables us to create separate zones of 100 spectators in each. Depending on vehicles, some of these zones may further increase separation by people staying in their vehicles to watch the show.
“As well as the burnout, Saturday will see plenty of on-track action with good numbers of classes from sprint cars through six shooters, saloons, super saloons, stock cars, productions and youth ministocks pedal to the metal practising for an exciting season ahead.
