This year's event has attracted entries from all over the country as well as Australia, with Brian Briton who is a member of the New South Wales Speedway Kart Club, making a special trip across the Tasman for the event.

A number of former dirt champions are returning for this year's event with local kart and now Stock Car driver Paul Mabey expected to feature in the Senior 1200cc Yamaha heavy class.
