Racers ready for Lockyer Valley speedway season

MOTORSPORTS: THE engines will once again fire-up as the Lockyer Valley Speedway roars into its 2015-16 season.

The first meet of the season will be this Saturday at the Gatton Showgrounds, with a bumper program set to please local rev-heads.

Lockyer Valley Speedway committee member Cec Morgan said a large range of classes would hit the track including modlites, late models, microsprints, junior sedans and four-cylinder sedans.

Morgan said the crowd pleasing streetstock sedans would also attend the meet.

Vintage and go-kart classes will also fire-up the engines starting at noon with the main divisions hitting the track from 4pm.

"We are looking forward to a good meeting for the start of the season," Morgan said.

"We might also get a large turnout of vintage cars because the historic, vintage and classic car clubs near Brisbane have amalgamated and we expect to get more cars this year."

Morgan said the meet would be a taste of things to come with an adrenalin-packed season ahead for the Lockyer Valley.

"We've got the sprint cars coming back this year and we have the late models at five out of the seven meetings too," he said.

"We are looking forward to a good season and we have a good roll up of divisions coming and they want to come too.

"All the divisions love the track because it's so smooth compared to clay."
