Welcome to Oceanview Speedway
Warriors tees

We've had lots of enquiries about supporter apparel for the 2016 Wanganui Warriors.

Because we were a bit late off the mark getting a team organised, apparel this year will be limited to supporter t-shirts only. Sam has been able to source a limited quantity of shirts, which will feature the same design as last year.

There will be no pre-sales, but you will be able to buy shirts at scrutineering on Saturday, and in the Warriors pits while stocks last. Shirts will cost $30 each, and we have a variety of sizes, but when we sell out, that's it.

We look forward to seeing you all in Palmerston North this weekend.

 

 
Wanganui Warriors 2016

The Wanganui Warriors, runners up at the ENZED Superstock Teams Champs in 2014 and 2015,

will again be contesting the biggest event on the speedway calendar.

The 2016 Wanganui Warriors team is as follows:

54V Bevan Humphrey
6V Dion Mooney
23V Scott Duncan
52V Francis Potaka
5V Keegan Levien
88V Ian Barron

Replacing Kyle Heibner, Kerry Podjursky and Shaun Pearson from last year’s team was never going to be an easy task.

But the Wanganui Stockcar and Speedway Club and Warriors team manager Daryl James have picked a team based around local competitors.

This was always the Club’s first preference. And Keegan Levien has a strong connection to Oceanview Speedway,

with his father Allen having raced several seasons for the Wanganui Vulcans Stockcar team.

The Club wishes the Warriors well, and thanks everyone who has helped to bring this team together.

Elite Mechanical & Engineering North Island Stockcar Champs

 Ward wins thrilling NI title

By Tony Stuart

Jayden Ward from Palmerston North is the new North Island Stockcar champion. Ward, the current 2NZ and former New Zealand champion survived two nights of brutal stockcar racing action to take the spoils.

Friday night saw 77 cars try to qualify for the 26-car finals field. Ward showed glimpses of what was to come in topping his group. Other group winners were Damien Orr (99R) and Michael Rumney (72R), whilst Mark Woods (517S) and Dion Mooney (6V) were tied at the top of the Red group.

Notables to miss the finals were Gary Lonegan (55A) who punctured in the final qualifying heat, rising talent Todd McLachlan (55W) and George Frear (32P) who looked certain to qualify before being caught up in someone else’s argument, and being towed off.

There was a three-way tie for the final two places between Randall Tarrant (66B) and locals Blair Lockett (89V) and Mark Johnston (78V) but Lockett had mechanical issues and couldn’t make the run-off. His weekend was over.

A large crowd poured in to Oceanview on a clear, cool Saturday night, and were treated to some red-hot racing action. The final 26 comprised nine Palmerston North drivers, five each from Rotorua and Stratford, two each from Hawkes Bay, Wellington and Wanganui, and the lonely Dave Moore from Huntly. It was clear that team tactics would be the order of the day.

Ward took the opening heat from fellow Palmerston North driver Stu Rackham in 29P. But behind them there was plenty of carnage. Alec Wilson (67P) hit the wall hard on the opening bend. Then one of the favourites to win, William Humphries (94P), came together with Brendon Tye (669P) exiting the southern bend and both cars rolled on spectacular fashion. Mooney escaped the carnage to finish third, followed closely by Kyle Lane (91W) and Tyler Walker (33S).

Walker took the second heat, slipping past Mooney in the closing laps. Ward finished third, but was relegated one position by the Speedway New Zealand stewards for a race infringement, leaving Johnston in third place.

After two heats, Ward and Mooney were tied on 49 points, with Walker a point further back on 48. Next of the best were Rackham (44) and Shane Davis (7W – 42 points).

Davis was on the front row of the grid for the final heat, with his bright orange car covered in black tap in an attempt to be invisible! It worked, and he streaked away for the win from team-mate Lane. But the battle behind him was intense as Bevan Phillips (72S) and Ron Tye (99P) tried to run interference for their club-mates Walker and Ward respectively. Mooney powered his way towards the front of the field, only to run wide in traffic and lose a couple of crucial places.

When the points were tallied Walker and Ward were tied on 72, with Mooney taking third on 70 points. A run-off was held, and after a cat and mouse start where the two cars inched away from the start Ward prevailed.

It was a masterclass in Stockcar racing from the young Palmerston North driver, who is the form driver in the class so far this season. He stayed out of trouble, even in the action-packed final heat, and showed a level of race-craft beyond his years. He celebrated his victory with an impressive burnout in from of the crowded embankment at the southern end.

Walker was fast all weekend in a car formerly driven by Ward’s father Graeme, also a past New Zealand Stockcar champion. After years where the class has been dominated by Peter Rees-built cars, Palmerston North chassis-builder Keith Gill will be delighted to have provided the two winning cars.

And Mooney was fast and smooth all weekend, but the sheer weight of numbers of Stratford and Palmerston North cars worked against him. Just finishing third however was a huge achievement after his car was rebuilt from the firewall forward in the days before the event.

The Second Tier championship was won by Caitlin Hayward (94M) from Todd McLachlan in 55W. Sandy Flett took third place in 898V after Joshua Annabel (39V) was excluded from their third place run-off. And Francis Potaka (52V) was awarded the trophy for the best stirrer of the meeting, which surprised no one!

This was a brilliant meeting, and Alan Luoni and the entire Oceanview Speedway team can be proud of an outstanding event. Everything ran like clockwork, and the racing was some of the best seen in Wanganui for many seasons.

29th November Review

Hot Day; Hot Action

It’s been a long, hot afternoon at Supercheap Autos Oceanview Speedway, but the first two championships of the 2015-16 season have been decided.

Peter Rees in 11G is the winner of the Charlie Berntsen Trophy for this season. In an action-packed final heat, Rees Snr avoided the attention of a number of Wanganui cars and Corey Sutton (89S) to take the win and the title. Going into the final heat Ethan Rees (127G) led his father by a point, but was twice stopped by Sutton allowing Dion Mooney (6V) to finish the race in second.

Ethan Rees and Mooney were tied in second place, so a four-lap run-off was called. Mooney turned right into Rees from the startline, but the tank got clear. When Rees spun Mooney going into Turn 3, he had secured a family quinella.

Peter Rees was visibly emotional when accepting the trophy in the Clubrooms. He had a huge amount of respect for Charlie, and committed to racing at this meeting a month ago. We reckon Charlie would have been proud of Rees today.

A major pile-up in the first championship heat was the main talking point of the West Coast Youth Ministocks. 44B Michael Hirst was turned sideways entering Turn One from the race start, and ended perched on top of a gaggle of cars. Nicole Hickmott’s day was over as she piled into the melee, and she left the track with St John personnel in attendance.

When racing resumed after the wreckage was cleared it was Aaron Humble (46H) who took the spoils, to go with the Wellington title the night before. Dylan Marshall (57H) made it a Huntly quinella, with Cameron Swift (42B) finishing third. Trazarn Ryland-Annabel (5V) was the best of the locals finishing tied for fourth.

Thanks to all the out-of-towners who turned up today; the pits were overflowing. A full report including the results from other classes racing today will be available tomorrow.

 

 
Fireworks Race meeting

What a fantastic night of action it was at Supercheap Autos Oceanview Speedway. Big fields, big crowd and a fabulous

fireworks display sent the folk of Wanganui home happy, even if they were a little cold.

Sadly, the Rees Shield is now in the hands of the Palmerston North Pumas. They were simply too good for a brave Vulcans side.

Brendon Tye led from wire to wire, even after being briefly spun mid-race.

Someone piled in to Ron Tye early, which might have been a mistake as Tye Snr got mad and spent the rest of the race

getting even! Kudos to Dion Black for an excellent drive in his first teams race to finish second.

The Supercheap Auotos Stockcars again turned on carnage, especially in the first race where more than 30 cars faced the starter.

Francis Potaka took a massive hit on the start-finish straight when he was turned into the wall then t-boned.

Bevan Humphrey picked up two wins in his immaculate Tank, although there was suspicion that Ian Barron (sitting in for Dion Mooney)

might have won the feature. Barron however took the Grand Slam officially, so his return from a brief retirement was successful.

The Minisprints turned on fantastic, close racing. Dan Fromings in 62S provided the most spectacular action,

clipping wheels then rolling right in front of the packed southern embankment. Kurt Phillips showed the level of grip in the new track

surface breaking his own lap record with a 14.806 second lap in the first race, and Shane Dewar was only a thousandth of a

second slower with a best lap of 14.807. Wins were shared between Phillips, Dewar and Warren Riddick.

The Minisprints are welcome back at Oceanview any time, and maybe next season we could see a Wanganui round in their

Oval Superstars tour.

There was also plenty of action from a huge field of Burger King Youth Ministocks, and in the other classes.

Huge thanks to everyone who supported last night's meeting; the feedback has been very positive.

We'll see you all again on Sunday 29th November for the Charlie Berntsen Trophy meeting, and the West Coast Youth Ministocks title.

1st Nov racing review

For the second week in a row, the sun shone over Oceanview Speedway this afternoon.

Although it was billed as largely a Club meeting there were good fields in all classes,

with the exception of Superstocks.

19 stockcars faced the starter today, all with a V after their numbers.

That includes former Stratford driver Shane Kells, who is now contracted to Wanganui.

The stockcars turned on plenty of action, especially in the Feature race and the Grand Slam.

Maybe it's the prospect of lots of teams racing in November! Dion Mooney raced to two wins in the 6V car,

but Mark Johnston turned him around on the final corner in the feature race allowing Trevor Greig to win his second

race after a maiden win last week. Steve Read in 42v took the other win.

Scott Duncan took a hat-trick of Superstock wins, whilst Mason James hit the wall hard in the second race after a steering breakage.

Newcomer to speedway Alex Mosley will be pleased with his debut.

Youth Ministock wins were shared between Huntly visitor Aaron Humble, Nicole Hickmott and Trazarn Ryland-Annabell,

whilst Brandon Jurgeleit in 48P took two wins in the Adult version, and Bayley Betts won the other.

And after winning the first Production Saloon race before being relegated to 2nd,

Nathan Smith had the misfortune to hit the wall right on the start-finish line in the second race,

ending his day. John Caird took a clean sweep, with John Huijs picking up two seconds and a third.

A full report will be posted tomorrow, but your scribe had an early start this morning,

and needs his beauty sleep! Well done to the magnificant All Blacks!

Opening Meeting Review

Written by Tony Stuart 

Meeting #1 for the 2015-16 season is done and dusted.

There were some stand-out performances this afternoon with 26S Mitch Vickery sweeping the superstock races,

81V Trevor Greig taking a maiden win in his second season in his stockcar and Richard McDonald making an

impressive debut in the 5V stockcar.

It was great to see Scott Duncan back in the 23V superstock after a serious illness last year.

And there were several new cars in the stockcar ranks, with more waiting in the wings.

   The new track surface looks great, and the new entranceway at the Airport end will get a test on

14th November when the annual Fireworks Spectacular takes place. But first there's a club meeting 

next Sunday, 1st November at 3pm.

Racing Review 31.01.15

The Wanganui speedway faithful had been looking forward to this meeting for some time. The lead-up weather was great, and big fields were expected, especially for the sought-after Charlie Berntsen Trophy. Then along came Murphy and his Law!

A shower of rain a couple of hours before racing was due to start left the track very wet. The Golden Oldies did their best to wheel-pack before and during their first race, and actually left the racing surface in reasonable shape for the first Charlie heat.

27 Stockcars faced the starter, and 36V Chris Annabel hit the lead early. 88V Ian Barron made his way to the front when Annabel hit traffic problems, only to be passed by 6V Dion Mooney with a lap to go. Mooney held on to win, backing up from his third placing in the Manawatu Championships the previous weekend. Kyle Heibner took a comfortable win in the second heat from 992P Taylor Lampp and 181P Peter Gordon. Barron and Mooney finished fourth and sixth respectively.

An impressive 20 Superstocks rolled out for Heat One of the West Coast Superstocks, with visitors from Stratford, Palmerston North and Hawke’s Bay. Jack Miers had problems with the 88P ex-Ewers machine, and watched from the infield. Kerry Podjursky was first out of the southern bend, and with the 56V tank running beautifully took the win from 15V Kyle Heibner and William Humphries in the 98P car. Light drizzle began falling just as the cars gridded up for the second heat. Miers got a flying start, whilst Podjursky was spun exiting turn two. The track got more and more slippery as the race progressed, and Miers was never threatened, winning from 39S Michael Willemsen and Humphries.

The rain had turned the track into a skating rink, and it was no surprise when racing was adjourned to midday Sunday. However Murphy wasn’t finished, and steady rain on Sunday morning led to the meeting being abandoned.

Points from the first two heats will stand, and the final heats will be run as part of the next meeting at Oceanview, on Saturday 14th February. In the Charlie Berntsen Trophy, Ian Barron leads on 50 points, closely followed by Dion Mooney on 49, with a gap to Kyle Heibner and Kyle Lampp (772P) who sit third on 43 points. It is hoped all drivers can return on the 14th.

In the West Coast Superstocks there are four drivers within four points. William Humphries leads on 36 points, closely followed by Michael Willemsen on 34, Kerry Podjursky on 32 and 27B Shane Warner on 31.

The West Coast Youth Ministocks title was also weather-affected. 58S Bailey Betts and 247P David Marshall had a win apiece, and the Stratford driver leads his Palmerston North rival by one point with a final heat to be run on a date to be advised.

This could have been the meeting of the season to date, but the weather had the final say. Here’s hoping for a fine evening in two weeks when hostilities resume.
