Pithara 13th April 2019
All smiles for the Meakins team – the number one team on the night at Pithara Speedway on Saturday 13th April. Second place went to Simon North and third to Richard Cheeseman. Congratulations to the place winners.
Results were fairly consistent throughout the night with the same placings as above for both the heats. There would have been a third heat but the rain prevented that from happening. This was followed with a short track preparation and interval before the Feature races took place.
Thank you to the Pithara Speedway team and volunteers for the wonderful job they did in preparing the track before the meeting and during it.
A few photos of the cars were taken during the perfect sunny afternoon as teams were getting things ready before the racing, included here for your enjoyment.
