This weekend Murray Bridge Speedway will host the 2020-21 Australian Modlites Championship.

With many national events affected by ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, this will be the only Speedway Australia division to run its Australian title this season.

This will also be the first time the Australian Modlites Championship has been staged at the Murray Bridge venue.

Twenty-four competitors will converge on the Bridge circuit for the event, including a strong contingent making the haul from Queensland.

Kyle Honour will come into the event as the defending champion, while previous title holders Klinton Hancey and Terry Lerrentveld will also be in the field and Scott Lehfeldt will be looking to go one better after two previous second placings.

Sam Gollschewsky, Shaun Rose, Daniel Lewis, Robert Hardy and Andrew Stoodley will complete the Queensland lineup.

South Australia’s charge includes the likes of Michael Miller, Scott Webb, Brook Alexander, Justin Chadwick, Jacob Carlier and Brian Chadwick.

Ryan Alexander has also entered, having proven his versatility in multiple divisions this season.

The championship format will feature 12 heats of racing followed by the title decider.

Practice for the modlites will be held on Friday from 1-3pm.

The night’s racing program will be supported by street stocks, late models and junior sedans.

The venue’s capacity will be capped at 2600 spectators.

Bar and canteen facilities will be available on the night.

Public gates will open at 4pm for a 5pm start.
