Just as all the southern speedways are closing down for the winter, our season begins.
We are off to a great start for 2023, especially when you consider that virtually every car had been rebuilt over the off-season, and with both practice sessions being cancelled by the weather bureau, many of the cars/drivers had not turned a wheel prior to the green flag dropping!
