VALVOLINE RACEWAY ANNOUNCE OVER $250K ULTIMATE SYDNEY SPEEDWEEK
Valvoline Raceway has taken the wraps off its lucrative and rich Ultimate Sydney Speedweek schedule that is set to capture the imagination of fans and racers alike.
Well over a quarter of a million dollars is on offer.
This represents the best “R&R” opportunity in the Harbour City ever held.
Racing and Relaxation.
Between December 26 and January 11 the lights will come on at the iconic clayway on six different occasions with an absolute smorgasbord of Ultimate Sprintcar, Speedcar and Late Model competition.
And the prize-money on offer is set to raise the eyebrows of racers in three continents – Australia, New Zealand and the USA!
Close to $300,000 in prize and points fund money is up for grabs.
The combination of the cash incentive and the frequency of racing in the seventeen days are expected to draw in a spectacular range of interstate and international competitors.
“We believe that this is going to be a very attractive concept for NSW teams, interstate teams and international teams alike,” says Valvoline Raceway Principals Barry and Felicity Waldron, “we have already had interest from American and interstate teams. The idea of being able to race with this kind of frequency, with this kind of money and not having the added expense of travel between races is very attractive. We are really excited about the possibilities.”
Six nights of Sprintcars will see $10,000 to win the A-Main each night.
Three nights of Late Models will offer $3,000 to win the A-Main each night.
Three rounds of Speedcars will see $3,000 to win the A-Main each night.
An impressive Ultimate Sydney Speedweek series points fund for Ultimate Sprintcars, Speedcars and Late Models will also be included with the details on those payouts to be announced shortly.
$294,500 in prize-money, prizes and point fund monies makes this one of the most lucrative phases of Speedway in Australian history.
