A family-friendly need for speed at Wellington Speedway this Sunday

If your family has a need for speed, don’t miss the sound of roaring engines and blaze of lights at the Max Motors Wellington Family Speedway this Sunday, as the 51st season gets underway.

It’s going to be another season of high octane family entertainment: all major racing classes are competing, including saloons, stock cars, mini-stocks, and modifieds. There are a good mix of drivers primed and ready for 18 nights of entertainment. The races are quick, fast and exciting – with crashes, smashes, winners and losers all playing out over an 8-15 minute race.

Families can bring their own food and drink to the event, and if there’s a craving for something not in the chilly bin there’s at least 12 different food vendors serving up loads of different options.

The season continues into the next few months, so check out Max Motors Wellington Family Speedway for more details. Events worth looking out for in the next few weeks include a fireworks display (which is definitely worth getting tickets for, it’s the only fireworks display in Wellington and kids under 10 are free) and a smashing good time can be had at the demolition derby, where old beaten up dungas compete to be the last car standing!

51st season of racing 7 o’clock start, 4-6 classes
