The Champion Freight team is well known for its love of sport, sponsoring a diverse variety of competitions across New Zealand. From dodgeball, to jet boat racing, rugby and more, we love to get behind local clubs and teams to help them achieve their sporting dreams.
This week we feature Kyle Glover, the TQ Midget Speedway racer. Champion Freight has been sponsoring Kyle and the team for over 8 years and we’re pleased to report a great 2013/2014 season, with a few thrills and spills along the way.
Typical cirular tracks extend 410 metres (1,345 ft) on the inside (pole line) and take less than 16 seconds to lap. Now that’s fast!
At peak, Kyle was placed 3rd on the overall championship ladder, but a DNF (did not finish) at Speedway’s premier 'King of the Coast' (Greymouth) event hindered his momentum, finishing the season up-side-down on the concrete wall with a (as he puts it) '...very bent roll cage'.
Anyone who's watch the sport will know there’s plenty of high speed thrills and spills to watch come race day.
At Champion Freight we're proud to sponsor Kyle and team and look forward to a great 2014/2015 season which starts in October this year. Why not pop along to a local race event and see Kyle in action for yourself (see the Ruapuna Speedway calendar for further information).
