Palmerston North - Saturday 30 October 2004

Report and pictures by Mike Pollard

Here are the latest photos from Palmerston North on 30 october 04.

The main event was to be the Manawatu Championship for the Ministock Class.

However, most people attending were there to see the return of the mighty Sprint Cars, making their first appearance at the track in over 10 years.

It had been raining (albeit lightly) for most of the day, and when I arrived at the track I was somewhat surprised to see the turnstiles open and the meeting on!

The Ministocks came out and lined up for the first of their championship races.

As they started on their rolling lap the "lead" cars were approaching the start/finish line whilst most were still struggling to get going at all as the track conditions were so bad.

The starter sensibily waved the red flag instead of the green, and the cars left the track (with a struggle) to be replaced by the heavier Stockcars who were "to remove the loose stuff during their race"

Well to cut a long story (race) short, only about 3 cars finished, at which point the announcer said that the track wasnt up to racing ....thank you and goodnight!!

Not a good day for the promoters who should have cancelled the meeting much earlier in the day.
An even worse day for some of the Sprint Car drivers who were faced with a 14 hour round trip!

Cars racing:
Std Stox 15
