More than 30 drivers will dust off their speedway cars and start their engines this Saturday when the Mt Barker Speedway Club’s 2020-21 seasons begins.

The opening meeting will feature the division-two productions sedans and AMCA Action Series, supported by street stocks, super sedans, junior sedans and production sedans.

Greg Horan, Rob Trenaman, Brett Morrison and Murray Parsons Sr are among nominations for AMCA, that will bring V8 dirt racing to Les Gorman Park.

The junior category has attracted a strong field of 11 drivers to compete in the season opener while eight street stocks are also entered for the season opener.

There were six production sedans entered and five super sedan cars in the early nominations.

Mt Barker Speedway Club president Tony St Jack said he was looking forward to the season.

“Everyone is really keen to get under way after a shortened season last year,” St Jack said.

“It should be a good weekend everyone is ready to go.

“We have a new committee, which are raring to go, all the volunteers are happy and the fields look pretty good.

“Holding the first meeting in the region is exciting and everyone is happy.”

Gates open at 10am and racing starts at 1pm this Saturday at the daylight venue.

Mt Barker will hold eight meetings this season, highlighted by the Super Sedan Classic and SSWA Summer Series round on February 27.

Other major meets include the Ronnie J Memorial Street Stock Feature and Kevin Sobey Memorial on March 27.

Club championships will be held on February 6, the production feature is set down for December 5 and the junior feature is on January 2.
