"We got rave reviews from the International sidecar competitors when they raced here last summer. They felt that the track was probably the fastest sidecar track in the country, and all we need is for the weather to play ball for us and its sure to be a great spectacle".
The Nelson pairing of Dallas Kelman and Adie Drake have decided against competing in the event, but that is hardly likely to detract from the calibre of competitors who will contest a series of qualifying races, before the top six pointscorers face off in three 'finals'.
Another Nelson pairing of Nigel Payton and Mike De Gray have been regulars at Ruapuna, and will be keen to better their second place that they earned at last years South Island Championship event, however a strong Ruapuna contingent spearheaded by the veterans John Warwood and Laurie McMahon will be hopeful to break the five year drought for Christchurch competitors.
The Elf Oils International Solo Series will also appear on the programme,
with Jesper Kristiansen (Denmark), Daniel Nermark (Sweden) and Englishmen
Jamie Courtney and Richie Hawkins likely to face stoic resistance from
the Christchurch riders.
