The South Burnett Speedway Club has great pleasure in announcing the “$10,000 to win” 2015 Modified Sedan Kings Royal, is once again scheduled to be held at Lucas Oil Kingaroy Speedway on 23rd, 24th & 25th January, 2015 – Australia Day long weekend.
After the overwhelming success of last year’s event that was won by Greg Worling, the event is back bigger than ever, with an increased prize purse and minimum guarantee and we have listened to you all and is back with an improved format over the three day event.
The event will be once again run with the unique three day format as per last season, but the new and improved format will see everyone compete in all three nights of the event and will see time trials mean even more as they will count for points and give competitors plenty of track time to ensure they give themselves every change to make the top 24 on Sunday night and a shot at the $10,000 winner’s cheque or just the $400 cash you will get for making it to the final.
As always the Kingaroy Speedway is committed to ensuring there venue remains competitor friendly and affordable and this season’s event will be no different with the Kings Royal event once again having a discounted 3-day admission Super Pass, which will once again make this event the cheapest 3 day event in the country.
