Monday Night Racing returns for 6 races over February and March. The first three rounds are held the first three Mondays of February (1, 8, 15), and the following three rounds are held in the first three Mondays of March (1, 8, 15). The final round doubles as the Todd Memorial, and will be held as a Criterium on the Fryatt St Wharf. This will be a cracker of a way to finish off the series of racing.
