2018 Sprintcar King of Cromwell

2018 Sprintcar King of Cromwell

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Mon 1 Jan ’18, 5:30pm – 9:30pm


Central Motor Speedway, Sandflat Rd, Cromwell


All Ages

Another huge evening of fast and furious summer action on the clay at Heavy Trax Hire Central Motor Speedway in Sandflat Road, off Highway 6 just on the outskirts of Cromwell.

Racing starts at 5:30pm but to grab a parking spot around the track take advantage of gates opening at 3:30pm. While waiting for racing, use the time to visit the pits (children must be accompanied by an adult) to meet drivers, their crews and also collect free posters.

Main events:
Sprintcar King of Cromwell... Most speedway fans love to watch all classes racing, however, for diehard Sprintcar fans, tonight is the night they'll witness the crowning of the 2018 Sprintcar King of Cromwell. A coveted title decided over two 25 lap races. With Saturday night's Hydraulink War of the Wings competitors keen to stay on to enjoy Central Otago weather and hospitality, most have indicated they will be racing tonight to lift the crown off local hero and five time South Island Sprint Car Champion, Jason Scott.

The idea of The King of Cromwell comes from Eldorado Speedway in Ohio where it has become a big event with lots of razzmatazz and where the winner gets to be paraded in an elaborate throne. Will this happen at Cromwell? Be sure to get along and see for yourself.

New Year's Day Champs... With the exception of Sprintcars, this involves most, if not all the speedway classes that regularly race at Heavy Trax Hire Central Motor Speedway... Saloons, Super Saloons, Six Shooters and Youth Ministocks. Exciting racing guaranteed!

Central Otago Productions Champs(Day 2)... the excitement continues. Today a driver will collect the lion's share of the $1000 prize pool.
