The name Woodford Glen was derived by combining parts of the founders surnames (Inwood & Rutherford). Glen was included due to their liking of the famous Watkins Glen track in the states. Errol Inwood and Ron Rutherford first opened the speedway
in 1974. The Woodford Glen Speedway Association, or the (club) purchased the business in the early 80's. Woodford Glen Speedway is situated North of Christchurch at Kaiapoi, New Zealand. The club prides itself on bringing to its public "family" entertainment.
At least 20 times from early October to April, on saturday nights, these drivers and their crews come to life. The club also runs demolition derby's during the season as well as other high profile championship events. Click here for directions to Woodford Glen Speedway.

"Burger King New Zealand Saloon Championship"
AmPro Tools Woodford Glen Speedway are excited to announce Burger King as our naming rights partner to the 2018 New Zealand Saloon Championship. This is a great result for the Saloon class and Woodford Glen Speedway who are hosting this championship for the first time in its history.
The Saloon class struggled to find its place at Woodford Glen for the first few years of its introduction, however through the dedication of its drivers and consistent effort from the club the class has experienced substantial growth over the past two years. Early indications suggest we will see at least 15 – 18 registered drivers to Woodford Glen this coming year. Obviously this is fantastic news for the club looking forward to the Burger King New Zealand Saloon Championship in January 2018.
As mentioned above we are extremely excited to have a truly international brand such as Burger King as a partner. Due to our strong position, professionalism and successful 40 plus year history we are confident Burger King have chosen the right partner to market and promote their brand in the Canterbury and surrounding regions.
Furthermore (and due to Burger Kings valuable commitment) the Saloon class will be huge benefactors of this partnership and the 2018 "Burger King New Zealand Saloon Championship" will exceed all expectations.
