THIS Saturday, Nyora Raceway will play host to around 80 race cars from a variety of Sedan sections of speedway, with all the local stars having top billing.

The Sports Sedans, Division 2 Hot Rods, Modified Sedans, Standard Saloons and Juniors are all in action.

Believe it or not, a special visit has been locked in with ‘Santa’!

Santa has agreed to come to Nyora Reserve and in particular to the speedway fans on Saturday in terrific weather. He has offered to make sure lots of lollies are available for the kids.

Another exciting attraction of the night is that club is selling raffle tickets to give somebody the opportunity to win a ride in the two-seater Lightning McQueen Unlimited Sedan. It is $20 a ticket and the lucky winner gets to fly around Nyora as a passenger in the car for eight laps. All proceeds go direct to Nyora as the car owner is a dedicated Nyora member helping the club thrive; thank you, Dale Mead.

In Modified Sedans, Marcus Reddecliffe, Trish Dike and Damien Miller have entered. Marcus and Trish are from Nyora club whilst Miller is a Pakenham man. They are expecting some competition from others with Modified Sedans around Victoria.

All the action on Saturday starts at 4pm whilst the gate will be open to the public from around 11am. Entry will cost $25 for an adult, kids 12 to 16 are $15 each whilst all other children are free and seniors are $10. A family ticket of two adults and two kids 12 to 16 is $60.
