The chance to share a slice of speedway action drew a big crowd to the Richmond Mall, where free family passes and mall vouchers were being given away yesterday.
The new season opens at the Tahuna Beach Holiday Park Speedway at 7 tonight and entries in a Nelson Mail competition had been accumulating inside Brittany Carpenter's ministock over the week the car was on display in the mall.
There were 580 completed entry forms to draw from when the competition closed at midday yesterday.
Mall manager Belinda de Clercq and 15-year-old youth class competitor Brittany drew the winners of the mall vouchers, along with family passes to tonight's meeting.
The winners included: Kylie Hoult, Kim Saunders, Rachel Neal, Michelle Van der Hoeven, Siuila Musika, Rachel Fleming, Kevin Rowe, Rachel Cunningham, Sharon Hellyer and Barb King. Pass winner Arch Last-Harris gave his family ticket to Taylor Milne while Sherry Donaldson presented her pass to Mandy Carter.
Full coverage of tonight's racing will feature in the Nelson Mail on Monday.
