Dunny derby down the loo due to lack of entries
THE Caravan, Boat and Dunny Derby scheduled for May 13 at the Castrol Edge Lismore Speedway has been postponed, however the fixture will still be held with V8 Dirt Modifieds the major attraction.
Promoter David Lander has yet to determine a new date for the derby and said a lack of entries was the reason for its postponement.
He said this year's nominations had been very slow. The entries were well down on numbers compared to previous seasons and Lander said he didn't want to charge people a gate fee for an advertised event that was short on entries and had only a few participants.
"I always want to give people value for money and there is simply not enough entries for the derby to make it a worthwhile spectacle," Lander said.
"I am uncertain when I will run the derby, though we will have plenty of race action on the night of May 13 to satisfy the fans."
He also pointed out that the recent floods in the Northern Rivers may well have contributed to insufficient entries for this year's Caravan, Boat and Dunny Derby.
The May 13 meeting will mark the final appearance of the fabulous, wheel-hiking V8 Dirt Modifieds for the 2016-17 season at the Lismore Showgrounds.
The V8 Dirt Modifieds will be supported with racing for Junior Sedans, Production Sedans, Wingless Sprints, Street Stocks, National Four Cylinder Sedans and AMCAs.
The final event of the season will be held on June 11.
