Double dose of speedway action for Daylesford dirt track fans this weekend

What is the one thing better than Easter Bunny on Easter Saturday and Sunday, Speedway racing of course, and Daylesford Speedway has two days of racing and a crowd-pleasing Demolition Derby this Easter Weekend along with the guarantee that Easter Bunny will be at the Speedway on Easter Sunday also.

Along with all the race driving heroes of all the regular Daylesford member classes, the Victorian Speedway Council 1200cc Juniors, Sports Sedans and Standard Saloons are scheduled to compete plus the Demolition Derby on Sunday which is sure to excite the fans with the banging and crunching of metal as cars smash each other up to try to be the last driver moving and win the prizemoney on offer.

The kids will really enjoy the weekend with Easter Bunny on Sunday and a bicycle race will also take place for the kids so bring the kids, to watch the Derby and the racing, if you bring their bicycles and helmet’s they can ride in the race. Categories start at the age of Under 6years old all the way up to 17-year-olds, and if the adults want to bring bikes and helmets for some giggles, they are more than welcome.

The Daylesford classes have all the regular race drivers that are at the front of the field including in the Modifieds Ryan Daly, Jayden Humphrey, Brad Trainor, and Daniel Litten. Last race meetings feature winner in Junior Sedans Jhett Cruise returns to compete with the likes of Bailey and Reece Kakoschke whilst Blaize Majok-Edwards and Blair Botheras will not want to slide off the podium at their expense.

In the Ladies Rickylee Basten resumes her battles with Jane Laidler and Ebony Trainor and Street Stocks are also competing.

Daylesford Drivers Association President Pauly Botheras will have a steer in the Sports Sedans with Paul Blake, Andree Meunier, and Ian Bartlett all capable of mixing it at the front of the field. In 1200cc Juniors Arthur Hutchinson is the favourite on paper, however Bryce Leek, Jemma Woods and Connor Claridge are just some of his competition on Saturday. In Standard Saloon action Tim Hutchinson so far has proved to be hard to beat. Aaron Cormack returns, and Priscilla Grech is another that might keep the boys on their toes.

Demolition Derby action will be right in front of the fans on the hill on Sunday after the racing is concluded to send everybody home happy.
