Fierce racing to decide five Bay of Plenty Championships and a fireworks display will bring the 2020-21 season to a spectacular close at Baypark Speedway this evening.


The Easter Saturday event is the 16th race night of the season which got underway back at Labour weekend.


Tonight, on the final night programme are the Bay of Plenty Championships for Midget Cars, Saloons, Stock Cars, Six Shooters and the Youth Mini Stocks – each decided over a three-race format.


Among the headline attractions will be the home track return of two of Baypark’s newly crowned New Zealand champions.


A brilliant summer campaign has seen Hayden Williams clinch the New Zealand Midget Car Championship as well as the NZ Grand Prix and Baypark’s inaugural 50-lap Midget Car classic.


Williams heads a quality field for the BOP Midget title which also includes NZ title runner-up Ryan Baker.


New Zealand champ Chris Cowling returns to the class for the BOP Saloon Car Championship which also features North Island champ Jarred Fletcher plus visiting drivers from the Gisborne, Huntly and Kihikihi tracks.


Racing starts at 6.30pm this evening at Baypark Speedway at Trustpower Baypark Stadium, 81 Truman Lane, Mount Maunganui.
