LISMORE SET FOR BIG WEEKEND OF MOTORSPORT

History will be made at the Lismore Showground this weekend when it hosts one of the oldest oval track races in the world – the 68th annual Australian Speedcar Grand Prix.

Lismore is only the 10th venue since 1938 to host this prestigious race. 29 drivers from across Australia will contest the 35-lap main event.

“I don’t think we’ll see much grass, I don’t know. I hope there will be 2000, 2500, a lot of visitors will be here spending their money in Lismore”, said promoter David Lander.

Because the cost of this event we’ve had to raise the admission charges so adults are $30 this week and pensioners are $25, all the rest stays the same.”

Gates open for spectators at 5pm.
