Arno Bay Dirt Circuit Easter race meet 2017

REHN'S Raceway lit up again at the Arno Bay Dirt Circuit Easter race meet with about 360 adults passing through the gates to see a great round of racing. 

Arno Bay Dirt Circuit Club president Craig Chesson said 45 cars competed at the twilight meet.

“We are pulling this many number of entrants each meet, the club keeps growing and growing,” Mr Chesson said. 

The night saw a crash where super open wheeler driver Kalvy Hartwig’s vehicle flipped two and a half times but he walked away with only a small amount of bruising. 

“We ensure the best safety at our meets and the fact Kalvy was okay after such an accident shows how our focus on safety is working,” Mr Chesson said. 

Spectator Jodie Schubert said dirt circuit was a great family event and she followed her nephew Mackenley Harradine around the state to other races. 

Racing was intense with numerous clashes between the cars during the night. 

Mr Chesson said some cars withdrew during the night with mechanical issues however, this did not impact on the excitement of the racing.

This meet was a trophy round and points earned did not count toward the end of year championship. 

The sponsors for the meet were Landmark Cleve, The Eyre Peninsula Tribune and Quinn Transport. 

The next race meeting will be held on Saturday, May 20.
