Hand sanitiser is at the entry point of the drivers stand and also in the timing hut.

Welcome to the Citrus Bowl - the best International RC Speedway track in Ashhurst. We pride ourselves on making sure you and your team have a great day racing. With our workshop and store on site, we will do our very best to ensure that once you start racing, you will be able to finish your day with us.
RC Dirt oval racing is new to New Zealand and our formula is to try and emulate as much as we can full sized Speedway racing, from the 2 laps qualifier laps, through the bump up system to find the A final. Its all new and we are learning as we go. Rather than make specific speedway cars rules sets, we are going to use our existing fleet of cars and then develop our own rules as we learn about this disipline of racing.
We will be taking your feedback from events to see how its going and based on what we recieve, we will consider what rules are in 2023 and beyond.
Event runs from 5.30 to late, you may need to consider pit lights to work under.
You will need bug spray.....

In 2022 no control tires, but from 2023 and beyond, we will be requiring all classes to use Speedway styled,or treaded tires once we have tested and have solid supply lines so we have these on site. Speedway styled wheels will also be mandatory as the aim is to be realistic, rather thatn outright performance.
