Drivers required to smash and crash in demolition derby

THE demolition derby is looking for drivers to smash and crash into each other on Saturday, April 16 at the Grafton Show.

The last car standing wins $1000 and drivers are in the running to win cash prizes for the best car and the "dog of the day", or worst looking car in the derby.

"Anyone that loves smashing and crashing will have a great time," organiser Leanne Rose said about the event.

Anyone over the age of 17 with a licence can enter at a cost of $50, which goes towards the prize money and all drivers get a free pass into the Grafton Show.

Mrs Rose brought the demolition derby fun to Grafton two years ago after holding the event in McLean for the past eight or nine years. Last year's derby was rained out so Mrs Rose is determined to have this year go ahead.

The event is open to all vehicles, but they must be stripped of all glass, plastic and towbars and fitted with safety bars and have no full chassis.

To enter, contact Leanne Rose on 0427431973 or rose77@westnet.com.au.
