State of Origin Come To World Series Sprintcars
Hi-Tec Oils World Series Sprintcars and Speedway Australia will partner with Speedcars SA this summer to bring WSS fans a thrilling Speedcar State of Origin support program during Speedweek.
State of Origin Speedcars is set to see the SA vs Victoria rivalry hit the track over 3 rounds between Christmas and New Year, with two of the rounds contested on the Hi-Tec Oils World Series Sprintcars Program.
The series will take place at Murray Bridge Speedway (December 27) and Borderline Speedway, Mount Gambier (December 28), with the third round contested at Hamilton Speedway on December 30.
The inaugural State of Origin Speedcar Series will feature 6 of the best South Australian and Victorian drivers going head to head to crown a champion. With the likes of the “Big V’s” Travis Mills and Peter Ghent facing off against passionate “Crow Eaters” Ben Dillon and Graham Knuckey, the exciting Speedcar State of Origin concept has the potential to grow into a permanent fixture on the Speedway calendar.
Speedcars Australia is motivated to revive the category and once again make Speedcars a prominent fixture in Australian Speedway. The State of Origin concept will take the first step, showcasing SA and Victoria’s best drivers in front of capacity crowds during Speedweek.
Speedcars SA member Trevor Knuckey has been instrumental in bringing the series to fruition with his hard work in the southern states, and after consulting with Shane Collins (WSS, Speedway Australia), the series was born.
“Speedway Australia is highly motivated to assist any class that wants to promote themselves and grow, and with the support of Murray Bridge and Mt Gambier Speedways, Hi-Tec Oils World Series Sprintcars presents a fantastic opportunity for the class of Speedcars to showcase what is an exciting category of racing in this country.” Said Collins.
“No prize money will be offered by the WSS or the venues, but the opportunity to showcase Speedcar racing to the huge WSS crowds is one we’re very happy to offer. Both [SA and Victoria] are supporting the initiative and are excited to seize the opportunity.”
“We look forward to some great racing, and fully expect that the series will help to grow Speedcars in SA and Victoria.”
