Get a speed fix at Wellington’s new season long points based league. Open to all categories and abilities, run from 4-6pm every Sunday afternoon until end of March 2013. Riders can accumulate points in graded racing that go to an overall league table.
We’re putting on a couple of FREE all-comers, have-a-go kids races this Sunday, November 25, before the Speed League. First ride at 3.30pm – 1-2 laps of the track on anything with 2, 3 or 4 wheels. Second ride at just before 4pm: handicapped wheel-race over 2 laps.
Bring your bicycle, tricycle, scooter, skates, blades or skateboard and have-a-go! Don’t forget your helmet. Depending on time, we may try a game at some point during the race meeting.

A Cat – 8 Lap Hares and Hounds (3 riders, selected by Race Manager with a low number of Speed League points, start on the back straight red line with the bunch on the finish line. Every time the Hares cross the finish ahead of the bunch they score 1 Speed League point each. Once/ if they’re caught, it’s a straight scratch race and the Hares stop scoring lap points. Then it’s 5,3,2,1 on the finish line as per scratch races. If the Hares stay away, they score 5,3,2,1 on the line.)
