‘The General’ John Day is the very definition of a speedway icon. There would be few motorsport fans in Western Australia who could recall a time when the iconic orange utes haven’t been a part of speedway racing in Perth.
This Saturday night’s Salute the General event will be the first commemoration of John Day since his passing in June and we at Perth Motorplex want to encourage everyone to WEAR ORANGE and help us celebrate his life and his impact on speedway.
Staff will be donning orange around the venue and we’re hoping some racers might even adopt some orange on their cars to help ‘paint the Plex orange’ this Saturday night.
It’s going to be a big night, with the Carbusters Demolition Derby providing a fun finale to all the action of the WA Sprintcar Championships thanks to Wormall Civil, plus Quest Apartment Hotels Rockingham Late Models, TW Mechanical 360 Sprintcars and Harris Engines Wingless Sprints.
