Just a reminder that this Sunday, October 16th is our annual rules and registration meetings for the 2023 racing season at Grand Bend Speedway.
These are some key points to ponder and voice your opinion on in the class meetings:
1- The Late Model rules are very simple and will hopefully bring more cars out with a 2700 pound weight rule and basic safety rules for racing bi-weekly. Rules are posted.
2- There is a V8 Stock rules package at 3100 pounds, a 2BBL carb among other easy rules that will be racing bi-weekly. Rules and schedule are posted.
3- Bone Stock and Mini Stock classes on Saturday nights are separately scored and ruled but will race together with 2 separate feature winners in victory lane with separate points and payouts at the end of a race night.
4- Kid Stock will see a return and compete at GBS. Kids up to 15 years old will compete in Bone Stock ruled cars as part of our Thursdays racing events.
5- Thursday Nights racing will be utilized to develop classes and drivers along with our usual Saturday Night racing. All posted on our website. Schedule is posted.
6- Our regularly scheduled GBS classes will see minimal to no rules changes in an effort to keep those classes as economical as possible. Anything safety related or need attention will be discussed and voted on.
7- We are tentatively having a 2 cars chained together class, called “Chain Warriors” that will be bases upon Enduro rules for the cars being used. If you are interested come to the meeting Sunday.
8- We are asking you to attend these meetings to assist with your input into GBS. Further please register your team so we can get a commitment level to further grow GBS and attract sponsorship for your division.
Registration is very affordable and structured for every level of commitment to GBS. Everything is posted for you to pre-fill out paperwork prior to meetings.
Please share this post so we reach as many people as possible.
Hope we see you Sunday the 16th of October.
We please to announce that we will be hosting THE LIGHTS FEST here at Grand Bend Speedway on Saturday October 15th, 2022!
This is a family oriented event that creates moments and memories shared with friends and families that last a lifetime. The Lights Fest uses non-standard, customized and patented lanterns that stay in the air for a short period of time. The lanterns have been specially engineered using state of the art safety protocols to produce a limited flight time (on average, reaching a hight of 250-300 yards and travelling a distance on 300-500 yards from their original launching point). They are made from non-flammable and biodegradable materials – no metal wiring is used. All lanterns are cleaned up within 24 hours of them being lauched by The Lights Festival crew.
The Lights Fest in co-ordiation with Grand Bend Speedway have been granted permission by the Township and have the proper permits to hold this event. The South Huron Fire Department has also given approval for the event and will be present on site during the event as is standard safely protocol for all Light Fest Events.
This will be the first Annual Lights Fest here at Grand Bend Speedway. We are excited to continue to bring wholesome family friendly entertainment to the Grand Bend area!
