The team at Springs Promotions are thrilled to announce the appointment of Matthew Percival as the Social Media representative at the Western Springs venue. Matthew was one of several capable contenders, however his knowledge and understanding of Speedway at our venue placed him ahead of his rivals.

“We are very excited to have someone like Matthew take on all aspects of our Social Media mediums”, said Greg Mosen – Promoter, “he has some very cool ideas planned for the season, and I think everyone is going to enjoy the new look updates etc from Matthew”, he said.

Matthew’s enthusiasm for speedway developed through his childhood years on the terraces here at Western Springs Speedway and has taken him to events around the world including Chili Bowl, Knoxville Nationals and Indiana Midget Week. For over 13 years he has written for New Zealand Dirt Track Racing magazine and annually attends the Speedway New Zealand AGM for the magazine. He is looking forward to sharing his passion for racing with the Springs community starting on opening night.

Stay tuned for the new look updates which will get underway every race night at 4pm. These updates will include driver interviews, track inspections, competitor line-ups along with a number of ‘behind the scenes’ concepts.
“I want to share everything about Speedway at our venue including several parts to it that the fans don’t normally get to see”, said Matthew, “I want to show people what it’s like to go to the drivers briefing, or what it looks like in the Race Control Tower” he said.

Opening Night at Springs Speedway is scheduled for Saturday 3rd November 2018.
