We are pleased to announce the ‘Teams Racing’ is scheduled to run as part of the United Truck Parts International Midget Series in a slightly different format.
Unlike previous years, the plan is to run a single sprint race each night of the first five meetings. The drivers will accumulate team points from each of the meetings, and we will see the final race unfold at the King of the Springs – Bryan Clauson 39 Lapper event on Thursday 3rd January 2019.
The Team selection process is that the local lads will show the selectors what they are capable of in the first 4 meetings of the season, ready for Boxing Day. Team NZ will be announced after racing on the 8th Dec. This team of three drivers will race against the other two teams at all five meetings.
Team USA will be represented by Kyle Larson, Christopher Bell and Tyler Courtney. Team Australia has Matt Smith, Kaidon Brown and Scott Farmer.
“All indications are that we will witness some of the best open wheel midget racing we have seen here at Western Springs”, said Greg Mosen – Promoter, “the team line ups are next level” he said.
