Tonight, we're off to Speedway Central, known in some other parts as Palmerston North. The reason for our visit is one of the biggest and certainly the most unique events in speedway anywhere; the Enzed New Zealand Superstock Teams Championships.
The event has been run at Palmerston North for over 30 years, and the punters come year after year; not just from within New Zealand either. The GB Lions have been a part of the fun for the last five years, and a good number of English supporters have made the trek down under; we had a beer with a couple of them last night, and are meeting others tomorrow to extend some Kiwi hospitality.
The Robertson Holden International Speedway will not be the place for the faint-of-heart tonight and tomorrow night as 13 teams battle for the title. Superstocks are sophisticated purpose-built race cars with powerful V8 motors, robust chassis and top-of-the-line suspension and brakes. And the drivers race for keeps.
The Baypark Busters make a welcome return this year, just as the Wellington Wildcats did in 2012. Both teams are past winners and crowd favourites with a strong following. Their presence adds spice to an already brilliant motorsport event. And around 15,000 punters will pack Arena Manawatu both nights to watch the action, and breathe in the petrol fumes.
So; to whet your appetite (and ours!), enjoy these highlights and big hits from last year's event:
