School principals to race at Beachlands Speedway

The potential for a school principal or two to get bumped about in a car race at Beachlands Speedway has pupils and parents rubbing their hands together.

About a dozen principals from schools around Dunedin have tentatively agreed to take part in the School Principals’ Race this Friday.

One of them is Carisbrook School principal Bruce James, who said the closest he had ever come to car racing was on go-karts, which was nothing like this.
