Great night of entertainment with great racing. Best night of the season with not knowing who was going to win each race until the checkered flag fell. Well worth going to for a good night out and cheap night of entertainment.

Fantastic venue, entertainment, short sharp show, great advertsing with easy to find information. Not just speedway with unique events like Drifting, Freestyle Motocross, Fireworks and Demo Derbies. Cheap night out and very family friendly.

Take your kids (not really for babies), take your parents, take your friends. Wellington Family Speedway has something for everyone, from 'speedway roast' (hot dog n chips) to high octane 800 horsepower ethanol drinking SuperSaloons & lots in-between.

Speedway racing is a very unique experience in New Zealand and a trip to Wellington speedway is well worth the entry fee. If you want to see the best action, make a special effort to attend either a Superstock or super saloon championship. This place...More
