Geraldton has welcomed the new year with a roar of engines.

The Geraldton City Speedway held its 22nd annual Production Sizzle last Saturday and Sunday, with a driver from the region taking out the main event.

Morawa-based racer Peter Katona won the production division, ahead of Mitch Baker and Jack McAuley.

The club said the drivers put on a show.

“Our drivers didn’t hold anything back,” it said.

“Peter (Katona) worked at it, putting on a unbelievable show for the crowd and driving it like he stole it.

“All of the races had spectators on the edge of their seats and unable to take their eyes off the track.

“We are so proud of each one of them for going out there and trying their best, representing our club and hopefully having a lot of fun.”
