Lismore speedways Smash 'N' Mash
THE first demolition derby of the season will be held at Castrol Edge Lismore Speedway tomorrow night.
These events are more specifically novelty than serious speedway, but the element of family entertainment makes the mechanical bull-fights something to be seen to be believed.
Some of the best bash and crash merchants in the Northern Rivers area have entered for the derby in which the last car running is the winner.
However, it's more than a survival of the fittest - these derbies are more akin to trench warfare as every competitor is hell bent on wiping out the opposition.
"Demolition derbies have been a way of life on the Australian speedway scene for many years now, but nobody seems to be getting tired of them," Lismore promoter David Lander said.
"They are always entertaining and the kids love 'em."
The strictly speedway fan is also catered for this weekend with racing for wingless sprintcars, AMCA sedans, production sedans, litre sprints, street stocks and the National Four Cylinder Sedan class.
Wingless sprintcar drivers are treating every Lismore meeting very seriously this season as points are on offer for the Driver to America series season premiership.
Round four looms as being keenly contested based on the congested leader board after the initial few rounds.
Last start Lismore winner Robbie Mazzer and previous feature race victors at the Grafton venue, Jamie Usher and Mick Santin, share the lead at the top of the table.
Premiership rounds are also being held during the 2015-16 season at Lander's other venue, Trevan Ford Grafton Speedway.
The Wingless Sprintcar Driver to America series will be held over 17 rounds this season.
Gates open tomorrow at 3pm and racing starts at 6pm.
