The Esperance Holden Speedway roars back into action for the first meeting of the New Year and it is set to be a blast.

The Supermod Country Round and South East Open Championships proudly supported by Hi-Tech Ag Solutions will be held on January 11, with a very large field of 22 drivers nominated for the event.

This is a welcome return of the Supermod division to the Esperance track and they are sure to put on superb racing action for the spectators.

Local drivers Neville Williams and Dave Scott will be fan favourites with both drivers getting some practice laps last meeting.

Visiting drivers of Aylmore, Campbell, Shepherd and McEllister will be in strong form and have had plenty of success in the past on the Esperance surface.

Last meeting on December 28 Esperance Holden Speedway hosted the AMCA Nationals Flyin 40, proudly supported by GH Construction.

Kalgoorlie's David Boyes reigned supreme taking the feature win over 40 laps to hold off the charge of Michael Holmes.

Junior drivers of Hayden Mortimer and Cam Aldrick will head to Collie speedway this weekend to compete in the Junior Sedan National Championships. We wish them all the best of luck in Collie.

This will leave the doors wide open for our remaining New Era Shearing Junior sedan drivers competing at Esperance this weekend.

Strong performances have been put forward recently by Charlie Tate, Chris and Hayley Dickersen and Brown brothers of Cameron, Kaden and Logan.

Esperance Outdoor Power Equipment Street stocks will be back in action this weekend. Last meeting witnessed very close competitive racing with Zane Humphrys, Brenton Bridges and Kyran Bridges all making the podium.

As Street stock drivers get ready for their state championship later this month in Manjimup we expect to see continued close racing among drivers in this local division

The Natrad Esperance Production sedans are also back in action this weekend. Blake Fletcher took the top step of the podium last weekend and is likely to continue his strong form. Neville Mansted took a long overdue heat win last meeting and places second on the podium.

Hamish Macalpine has some extensive repairs to complete on his Ford Cortina after impact with the concrete last meeting. Macalpine has been the one to beat all season and will be looking to get back to the front of the pack.

Sean Barrett will hope to have his engine problems under control and be a front runner once again

The Esperance Combined Tyre and Mechanical Burnout division will make smoke clouds again this Saturday as the ever popular division continues to entertain the public.

Sheehan Varney has been in strong form in recent events while Michael Green, Gary Nazar and Jamie Goodwin continue to keep the pressure applied

Racing gets underway from 6pm this Saturday night with gates opening at 4pm.
