Super streets scream onto speedway

MAREEBA Speedway will come alive with the sounds of roaring engines and screaming spectators as they host the annual Super Street Sedans QLD Titles this coming Saturday.

Local driver Bill Stolzenberg will race his Holden Torana on Saturday night.

The event is expected to be attended by over 800 spectators and 23 drivers from across Queensland including locals and visitors from as far as Roma. 

The titles are held annually in Mareeba as the super streets division was revived here many years ago after the division collapsed in the 1970s and 80s in the southeast corner. 

Super Streets is one of the fastest growing divisions in the Australian speedway scene, with registrations more than doubling in the last 12 months. 

Chief steward of the Mareeba Speedway John Tichborne said the titles were always a popular and well attended event. 

“This is the third year we’ve held this event and the guys who are racing are rapped,” he said.

“Some of these guys are going out spending $4000 on their cars over the past couple of weeks trying to do them up. 

"There are other divisions racing on the night like sprint cars and others.” 

There is $1500 up for grabs for the winner of the event and more cash prizes for second and third. 

There will also be a Halloween themed fancy-dress competition amongst the spectators. For more information visit the Mareeba Speedway Facebook page.
