Murray Bridge Speedway will make another attempt to break the world record for the most demolition derby cars to compete in a single event this Saturday.
The event came so agonisingly close last season, with a total of 123 cars – just three cars short of the breaking the current record of 125, which was set in Canada in 2019.
“After falling only a couple of cars short last season, we really wanted to give the record one more go,” said event coordinator Angel Budarick.
“We actually had enough cars nominated last year to break the record, but unfortunately three of those cars wouldn’t start when it was time to drive them out onto the track.”
The event will have $10,000 up for grabs for the last car running, should over 100 cars participate.
The program will kick off with speedway racing from 6pm, with close to 60 competitors competing across the wingless sprint, AMCA nationals, street stocks and junior sedan sections in what will also be the last race meeting for the 2021-22 season.
The event will be live-streamed at www.clayperview.com.
