The 2018 South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic may only be two short weeks away, however the car count continues to spike with a field of 100 plus cars again expected to greet the starter.
For those travelling to Warrnambool the following is a proposed list of events and information that may prove to be useful both during and in the lead up to the Classic which will be held on Friday January 19 through to Sunday January 21, 2018.
Tickets for the Classic remain on sale with 3 Day Passes as well as Single Night entry tickets available via www.premierspeedway.com.au.
While there are many General Admission Tickets available, patrons are advised that the best way to avoid having to endure the ‘rush’ for prime General Admission viewing, is to purchase Terrace Seating, which includes a plastic reserved seat in turn two.
It should also be noted that these are selling fast with under 200 remaining available for the Classic weekend.
With regard to accessing the venue, the following points are to be noted:
• All patrons are asked to take note of signage, as located at the gates, which will identify queues for Members and Season’s Pass Holders, Pre-Paid Ticket Holders and those wishing to purchase tickets. • Chairs may be placed in an orderly manner in the correct queue on either side of the venue, however they are not to be tied, chained or affixed in any way to the gates, fence etc. • Patrons are asked to return to their chairs, no more than 30 minutes prior to gates opening at 1.30pm. Any unattended chairs will be removed from the line. • No additional party members, with or without chairs can join the queue at any place other than the rear. For example if two persons have reserved their place with two chairs in the line, any other members of their party are to join the line at the back. • Once admitted to the venue, patrons can set-up their chairs etc, naturally they can wait for the remainder of their group in their chosen viewing position and/or then seek a pass-out should they desire. • Anyone choosing to obtain a pass-out will need to re-present the pass-out with their original admission ticket to gain re-entry. • The reserving of areas on the spectator mounds using tarps, large blankets etc. will not be allowed. Place your chair and that is your position. • These changes have been implemented to avoid any unnecessary discussion or confrontation on race day and will be supervised by Security Staff. • In short, by-all-means reserve you place, don’t try and push in, be considerate and respectful of other patrons and the needs of venue officials with regards to vehicle access etc. This will result in everyone gaining access to the venue as quick as we possibly can as well attending the other Classic related events such as the Classic Breakfast and the Fan Appreciations day – which is for you the Fans!
