The meeting was postponed and I have online tickets?
If you have an online ticket and the weather wins before 5 races are run your ticket will be valid for the next available meeting. If you are unable to attend this meeting please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
What is the weather like and will the meeting be cancelled?
The Max Motors Wellington Family Speedway are very active on social media. All meeting information and updates will be publicised on our facebook page as soon as it comes to light. This means that if there is any kind of weather or postponements that is the place to check. If there hasnt been a post, there is no update. This is also a great place to keep up with weather updates on the day, live videos from the pits and results! The voulinteers appreciate you not messaging us asking if it is cancelled, this ties up the team with responding and means we get behind in our duties to get racing out.
Is there a live stream?
This year only the Capital Pools & Spas Stockcar Teams Champs will be streamed. All other events will NOT be live streamed. The Teams Champs Stream is provided by "The Pits TV" and will be widely publicsied. Please be careful as there are many scammers on facebook trying to sell live streams to our events. If its not posted by our Wellington Speedway facebook page then it is not real.
Can I listen in to the commentary?
Yes you sure can! Tune in on your FM radio at the track to 88.1 FM
Its my birthday can I get a shout out?
Yes! We love sharing your birthday with you. Pop up to the race control in turn 1 and let the team know who your shout out is or message our facebook page!
Can I look at the cars in the pits?
Yes you can but be careful. We operate an open pits, but it is an area where race cars are moving about. There are multiple hazards and care must be taken at all times, children are welcome when accompanied by an adult. Drivers welcome their fans coming to visit and say Hi! If your really luck you might even get a photo in one of the cars...
Who are your full time staff?
We dont have any... Our track and events are run by the club which has a voulinteer committee. If you would like to speak to one of our team please email us on email@example.com
I want to get in to racing but not sure how to start?
Getting into racing will be one of the most exciting thing you can ever do. The first place to start is by choosing a class you would like to race in. We would recommend talking to some of the drivers in the pits once you have about the ins and outs (they would love to talk to you!) and then it comes to purchasing. If you arent confident in approaching a driver you are welcome to speak to the club on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help point you in the right direction.
