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.

In case you’re wondering what a Three Quarter Midget is, they’re a class of dirt road racing car, boasting a very high power-to-weight ratio. Toping over 120 kmph (75 mph) on the straights (>80 kmph sideways on the turns), the robust four cylinder 150 horsepower engine powers a vehicle weighing just 280 kgs (617 lbs), minus the driver.

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!

2013/2014 Season

We've been following Kyle's process throughout the season which consisted of 17 race meetings between Ruapuna, Nelson, Greymouth and Cromwell. Extreme rain and schedule conflicts prevented further racing around the South Island.

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.
