Easter Extravaganza is back!!!
Well the dust has almost settled at the Prokarts Top of the South Speedway as we are on the cusp of the end of another very busy season. All that is left now is to finish the only way we know how and that’s with a massive two day meeting that is the Easter Extravaganza proudly brought to you by the Tahuna Beach Holiday Park. The team at the Tahuna Beach Holiday Park have been long standing supporters of our speedway and it’s great to have them on board for our grand finale. The Easter meeting used to be a big draw card a few years ago before its demise but the Nelson Speedway Association has decided to bring it back to Nelson where it belongs. We are expecting competitors from all over the island and even a handful from the north including Lance (LALA) Ashton in his mighty Top Gear Chassis Superstock from Rotorua along with his daughter Kendall in her Youth Ministock.
We will be running Superstocks, Stockcars, Sidecars, Streetstocks, Three Quarter Midgets and Midgets at both shows and Production Saloons and the Youth Ministocks will get a show each on alternate days and all classes will be contesting championships at both shows. Apart from Lance Ashton some other notable entrants are the 1NZ of Matthew Leversedge in the TQ’s and ex Nelsonian Dallas Kelman makes a return to his old haunt with his swinger Chay McWilliam and two other Invercargill bikes in the Sidecar ranks. There are a big number of out of towners here to try wrestle all the silverware away from the home town heroes including drivers from Christchurch, Greymouth, Invercargill and Blenheim across all classes. Also on the programme to help get the juices flowing on the Saturday we have a Stockcar teams race between our very own Tasman Thunder and the Canterbury Crushers from Christchurch. This will definitely be a grudge match not to be missed.
This meeting is our way here at the Prokarts Top of the South Speedway of thanking all the people and local businesses for all the support we have received during this 2014/15 season and to recognize all the effort that the drivers, pit crews , fans, sponsors and volunteers who all put countless hours into our sport. So if you have over filled on Easter eggs and you’re in the need for some top notch entertainment then get yourself along to Nelson’s number one attraction that is speedway as we “DO IT IN THE DIRT”
You can purchase tickets at the Richmond Mall prior to any meeting to save you time at the gate on race nights.
