Welcome to Oceanview Speedway
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.

28 Dec
Sorry we willl not be racing the Adult Ministock class on the weekend of 28th December.  Any local competitiors are to please help out during the meeting, thank you


If you intend to race at Oceanview speedway, you MUST contact the class rep (Daryl James or Cindy Lancaster)  details are under 'contacts',  at least 2 days beforehand.  We have a limit of 26 cars for Youth Ministocks.  

If you arrive to the race meeting on the day and you have given notice, you will not be able to compete.  This is due to too many just turning up on the day and breaching our quota. 

If you intend to drive at every meeting on the race calender  for your class, you will still be requried to CONFIRM closer to race day.  If you do not confirm and do not turn up to race you will be taken off the register and will have to get in contact again.

Thank you to all competitors who support our track.

How the Points System Operates

Points are allocated for ALL races up to a maximum of 6 points.  

Standard Races:

1st =  6; 2nd = 5; 3rd = 4; 4th = 3; 5th = 2; 6th = 1  

Feature Races:

1st =  6; 2nd = 5; 3rd = 4; 4th = 3; 5th = 2; 6th = 1  

Grand Slam Races: (not included in overall points)

1st =  6; 2nd = 5; 3rd = 4; 4th = 3; 5th = 2; 6th = 1

Points are allocated to the driver of a vehicle not the vehicle itself.

Feature Points are included in the overall season points as well as being recorded separately.

Stockcars/Superstocks - when these two classes race together in a Standard or Feature Race, they are awarded points as per their placings per class.  For example if Supers finish 1, 2, 5, 6 , they will be awarded points as 6, 5, 3, and 1.

If Stockcars finish 3, 4,  in the same race, they will also be awarded points as 6, 5.  

The Grand Slam allocates its own points and these are awarded as per the placings regardless of class (Stockcars or Superstocks.)

When a Championship is run at a meeting (West Coast Champs or Charlie), no points will be awarded OR if the Teams are away on a race meeting No points will be awarded

Losing track of points can occur when Drivers swap vehicles during a Race Meeting and don't notify the Office Staff.
