Smash, bang, biff!! Steaming radiators Bat Man, its the annual Demolition Derby at Heavy Trax Hire Central Motor Speedway on Easter Sunday.

This last car running tournament is a huge crowd pleaser, especially for the young of years and young at heart. As for the drivers, they have a smashing time. For anyone prone to road rage entering an old dunga in this derby would seem to be a lifetime cure.

Before they start biffing each other, cars competing in the demo derby have in fact gone through quite a process that includes chaining or welding shut doors, removing all glass and accessories, fitting a four or five point harness seat belt and installing a substantial roll bar.

For this season's X Factor Cars & Otago Metals Demolition Derby, Central Motor Speedway made available some 10 cars that we understand were snapped up. These with other entries should stack up to a huge festival of auto-destruction. We also understand there may even be some well known Central Otago locals out to wreak havoc. But more of that on the day.

Before the track becomes littered with body panels and auto parts there's proper, fast-paced, adrenaline-pumping, mud-kicking speedway entertainment with all classes racing... winged demon Sprintcars competing in the annual Sprintcar King of Cromwell, methanol gulping super saloons, speedy saloons, surprisingly fast V6 powered open wheeler six shooters(aka wingless sprintcars), racy productions, 1200cc Youth Ministocks driven with skill and gusto by 12 to 16 year olds and a contingent of streetstocks, speedway's hard case class. If all goes to plan there will be a tyre-popping burnout.

Racing starts at 4pm but to grab a parking spot around the track take advantage of gates opening at 2pm. While waiting for racing, use the time to visit the pits (children must be accompanied by an adult) to meet drivers, their crews and also collect free posters.
