Aussie’s best on track for national honours at mower race

THE stage is set for some fast and furious racing at the 2016 All Australian Ride-On Mower Racing Championships at Yaamba today.

Forty-eight nominations have already been received, with more riders registering yesterday morning.

There will be racing in the outlaw and big block classes, as well as from A-grade through to D-grade.

The Central Queensland Mower Racing Club is hosting the national championships for the second consecutive year at its track at Yaamba.

President John Kennedy said spectators were guaranteed high-speed entertainment, with some of the country's best riders racing at up to 90kmh.

A number of the entrants were on track earlier in the week completing time trials.

Racing will run from 9am to about 2pm today.

Entry is $5 with children under-14 free.
