Drivers gear up for new Kingaroy speedway season

DRIVERS will rev their engines on the Kingaroy speedway tack for the first meeting of the new season on October 19.

The Kingaroy Speedway Club are gearing up for another big season featuring the eighth annual Kings Royal and Queensland super sedan title.

The Kings Royal will be raced over January 24-26, 2020 and will also see the rerun of the Queens Royal celebrating the contribution of women to the sport.

The Queensland title will be raced on December 14 and should be a highlight of the calendar according to Ryan Harris from the club.

"This date should attract a magnificent field of drivers to the likeable show ground venue who will host the state title for only the second time in its forty-seven year history. Super Sedans also return for a Queensland Series round in March," he said.

Street stock drivers will be racing to win $1000 in the Uniform Zone Stampede being held on March 15 and will compete throughout the season in the five round super sedan series.

Modlite drivers will have four opportunities to take the track, wingless sprints will race at the season opener and lightning sprints feature twice throughout the season.
