The 28th April will see the running of the 3rd Watsons All In Sprintcar Express.
In what has now established itself as an annual event, the Watsons All In Sprintcar Express will see the Best Sprintcar Drivers in Western Australia battle it out at the iconic Wheatbelt country track of Pithara as the WA season draws to a close.
Naming rights Sponsor, Event Committee Member and one of the Principal Organisers Rob Watson Snr said “Last Year was a massive success, with really positive comments and congratulations coming back to us for weeks after the event. Those that attended had an absolute ball.”
Rob continued “The Organising Committee (Pithara President Phil Waters, Jo Filgate, Jason Sutton, Darren Sutton, Sandra Watson and myself) have met on several occasions to develop the Event plans – plans that we know will make the 2012 Watson’s All In Express the best yet”
With Pithara Speedway just over 2 hours north of Perth, the event offers a fun family atmosphere and the ability to get up close to the action. It’s close enough for Perth people (Spectators and Competitors) to easily get to the event, but also many people come from the North, West and East – even from places east of Pithara like Kalgoorlie. Add to that a Bunch of determined locals and you can begin to see that this is an event not to be missed.

This year the Committee have plans for a Live Band to play during a designated track preparation session just before the A-Mains and also at the end of racing when “The Party” kicks off. The entertainment will continue well into the night.
Rob Watson added “Racing will start earlier this year at 2:30pm. The plan is to start the Feature Races just after sundown and that should see the racing program completed by about 9pm – allowing plenty of time to wind down and enjoy the party atmosphere afterwards. I am hoping for early nominations so we can get all our logistics and printing organised well before the event. So if you are interested in racing, could I please ask that you lodge your nomination as soon as possible. Nominations can be forwarded to myself via email or phone.”
