Welcome to the home of the NSW Lightning & Litre Sprintcars

VR Cancellation of Round 1
In an unprecedented turn of events, Round 1 of the IP Demo track championship was cancelled as cars were set to roll out. Valvoline Raceway were forced to make the call after being unable to recover the track surface from a serious case of soft spots in Turn 3 & 4.

Drivers, teams and fans left disappointed but safety had to take top priority. Attempting to race on the surface simply wasn't an option.

This is a great opportunity for the rookies, and I would like to personally thank Craig & Anna for their ongoing support.”

Practice Night - Strong numbers among bumper fields

About 9 cars joined the bumper numbers dialing in at last Saturday night's Valvoline Raceway practice session. A few veterans took some test and tune time with 5 new rookies on hand to cut their teeth. All drivers came back smiling as the night went on.

Scott Moir returned to iron out his engine issues, joining Ben Morgan and team McTaggart also keen to get early testing done in time to set up their season ahead. Brett Davies fired up the new #9 car now trialling EFI on the Honda K20.

Learning curves were again steeper for some rookies over others, with a couple experiencing engine woes on the night. It was hard luck for Monique Davis with a blown engine to finish her night, while John Ferguson, Dan Morris, Mel Priestley and Kyle Thomas all managed to complete a solid night building pace each run out.

2017/18 looks even more promising building on last years success with car count set to increase as the season progresses. Make sure to be trackside on the 14th October when round 1 of our championship kicks off at Valvoline Raceway
