It’s almost here. Our staple evening racing series has rolled back around for another season.

Monday Night Racing takes a slightly different format this year, with the first three rounds held fortnightly, and the following four rounds held in consecutive weeks. The biggest change to write home about is that the final round for the year, Round 7 will be held as a Criterium on the Fryatt St Wharf. This will be double points, and a cracker of a way to finish off the series of racing.

Once again Chris and Midway Motors are a major backing force of the series, and we’re eternally grateful for their continued support!

All other details remain the same, check them out below or on the webscorer entry page.
