The Gisborne Speedway Club will host their final meeting of the season tomorrow night with the weather on their side — and the club and fans can look forward to a great finale.

A forecast 24 degree fine day will provide for a tremendous end to one of the club’s most successful competitive seasons.

The major highlight tomorrow night will be the McCafferty Metal Cartage superstock champion of champions, and the best pairs.

“Peter Rees has told us to expect more than 20 cars tomorrow night, so we are in for a meeting to remember,” said club president Neil Gooch.

Rees (2NZ) will be joined by many of the top drivers from around the North Island.

“His son Ethan (127G), our own James Kirk (331G) will also be racing tomorrow night.”

The supersotcks will race over three heats to decide the championship title.

“They will know who they are partnered with in the best pairs, so that should make it even more interesting.”

In support will be the Robert Harris streetstock champion of champions and best pairs, where Brenden Gooch (2NZ), and his brothers Sean (9G) and Cody (6G) will all be contenders.

“Sean and Cody come off some great form from the tri series last weekend, where they were first and third.”

There will be a field of around 14 cars.

The Ashley Scott Memorial Trophy will be decided in the stockcars, sponsored by Sam’s Upholstery.

“That is a highly-prized trophy and the racing for it will be hard and fast,” Gooch said.

The Eastland Oil and Engineering saloons best pairs event has drawn a field of about a dozen cars, including Ethan (1NZG) and Daniel Cook (77G).

“Who they are paired with won’t be known to the drivers until after the three-race series.”

There will also be TQ’s racing and double points will be up to grab in other classes, including production saloons and youth ministocks.

“It will be a 22-race programme, including a demolition derby to finish the night and the season off in style,” Gooch said. “Currently we have more than 30 cars ready to go in the derby, which will be another spectacle I am sure.”

Gates to the speedway open at 5pm, and the first race will start at 6pm.
