The MCD Contracting Esperance Speedway returns after a short break this Saturday for the final night of the Kalgoorlie Esperance Challenge. The Kalgoorlie Esperance Challenge is an annual event where drivers from all divisions compete at both Kalgoorlie and Esperance for point for their respective clubs. The Club with the most points over the two nights of racing is the winner and hold bragging rights for the next 12 months.
