ILT New Year Track Carnival
The ILT New Year Track Carnival will take place from Friday 29 January to Saturday 30 January - come along for some classic carnival racing, including wheel races, Keirins, and motorcycle paced events. Entries via Webscorer are open here, and close Tuesday 26 January at 12 noon. Rider entry is $20 per day ($40 for both days), while spectator entry is free for under 16s, and a gold coin for over 16s. For more information, including a provisional programme, click here.
Please note that Stadium Southland will be closed from noon on 24 December and reopen 6 January (with limited hours). If you need your track bike (or anything else stored under the track) over the break, please be sure to collect it by 23 December, as you will not be able to access the stadium at all between while it is shut. That is especially important for those who want to take part in the Tuatapere Sports Day on 1 January, or heading up the the Canterbury Track Carnival.
