Woodford Glen Speedway, Kaiapoi

Enjoy all the action of the speedway with something for everyone.

Every year is a big year at the Woodford Glen Speedway  but in 2014 they celebrated “40 Years at the Glen”. 

Only 20 mins from central Christchurch, if you are looking for a great night out with the family or with your mates, Woodford Glen is the place to be!  The Super Saloons with more than 600 horse power under their bonnet, would leave Lightening McQueen in the dust, and the Mater’s of the racing world are kept busy rescuing cars that have crashed or broken down!

If you want to see speed, action, sparks – Woodford Glen has it all!  Super Saloons, Modifieds, and the Stockcar Family (Mini, Street, Super) and the crowd favourite – Demolition Derby, with metal crunching roll overs and motor meltdowns!

The “Must not be Missed” event at Woodford Glen is the Fireworks Extravaganza in early November each year!  Wow – 20 minutes of spectacular fireworks that light up the night sky.  The grand finale is a huge fireball that will have even the harden ones to please amazed.

Take a picnic dinner and a rug or comfy chair, sit back relax and watch the action!  There is plenty of free parking and there are food stalls on site though a locals tip - grab your fish n chips from  the local in Kaiapoi and take them along with some Watties Tomato Sauce. Get in early though as every local does it.
