WHO WE ARE

Mike's Story

Here at Woody Racing, we know that true victories come from hard work, motivation and drive. Our driver Mike Slater knows this very well, diagnosed with bone cancer in his left arm at 23, being left handed meant he faced a lot of challenges as well as having lost his mother a few years later, speedway gave him a sense of freedom and family he couldn't find anywhere else, He helped build Waharoa race track as well as sitting on the board CTRA for a few years and after over 30 years of racing he doesn't plan to give up any time soon, Mike got his start in Production saloons, then moved on to formula 500's, limited saloons and finally super saloons. While we race to the best of our ability, sometimes the physical restrictions inhibit being able to compete at the 110% effort needed to continually lead the pack. His family, wife Jo, daughter Hannah-May, and son James, have also found a love for the sport, helping Mike prep the car for race day, helping with repairs and crewing on the car on the day, Jo also raced for a few years in production saloons before Hannah-May and James were born, as well as refereeing trackside and helping out as well.
