Local man, John Tuffley competing at last years South Island Solo Championship
at Oreti Park Speedway
Impressive field for South Island Championships
Some of New Zealand’s hottest speedway talent will line up to contest the South Island Solo Championships at Oreti Park this Saturday.
Moore Park rider Dale Finch, of Christchurch, rates as a definite title contender and is no stranger to success at the Sandy Point circuit, claiming the national U-21 crown there in December.
Oreti Park’s own Grant Tregoning, a three-time NZ U-21 champion who has proved particularly dominant in previous outings, and fellow Cantabrian Andy Aldridge rank among Finch’s toughest rivals. The pair both raced professionally in the UK last year and boast considerable experience.
“None of these riders like the feel of dust in their faces flung up from a bike in front so expect some extremely competitive racing,” Oreti Park Speedway president Fraser Gillespie said.
“It’s an impressive field.”
“On the day it all comes down to track conditions
and who can adapt the quickest to the elements of the good old Southland
weather,” Gillespie said.
