New speedway canteen to face toughest challenge

MARYBOROUGH Speedway fans will take the facility's newly refurbished canteen for a spin when it hosts the first round of the Bob Jane T-Mart Burnout Masters.

The club spent $50,000 on the new canteen, the main difference of which was a change from gas to electric systems.

While it passed a minor test at the SKAA Karts Winter Nationals Round 2 on July 29, Maryborough Speedway vice president Paul Swindells said the Burnouts would present a whole, new challenge.

More spectators means more hungry stomachs, which will result in a very busy Saturday afternoon for Swindells and his fellow volunteers.

"It's probably been about two months or so in the making but there's still a bit more to do,” Swindells said.
