A late addition to the fixture list, saw Palmy enter it's eighth month of racing with the King of the Arena title up for grabs.

Superstocks
Heat 1
#19p Paul Harris and #95p Clive Elliot were first away, before both cars half spun, allowing #591p Wayne Hemi to take up the reigns ahead of the recovered #19p Harris, who then had to fight off #77p Wayne Norris and #10b Sam Bartholemew who were battling for third. A big pile-up on the last lap which collected #64p Kev Smith, saw #61p Gary Trotter take a massive roll and the #65b John Hynd car erupt into a huge scary looking fireball.
