Dirt track racing at its very best
The majestic days of Rowley Park are a long distant memory but the sport of speedway continues on in earnest at Speedway City near Virginia. Season 2015/16 sees Speedway City enter its 36th year of continuous operations, a remarkable achievement in anyone's books. And for this coming season the regular events return plus a series of new events, all jam packed into a 15 night extravaganza of speed, tactics and all round great family entertainment.
Speedway City is a purpose built 430m clay track with a width of 16m and a camber of 1.2m which makes it near perfect for fast racing. The fastest lap time was recorded by Robbie Farr in 2012 at 11.651 seconds which is equivalent to a remarkable lap speed of 132 kmh.
The winged sprintcar warriors feature heavily throughout the season with a series of nights dedicated to the smaller 360's followed by the appearance of the big 410's at the Sprintcar Masters and the George Tatnell Sprintcar Cup. With plenty of prize money on offer we can expect the biggest and brightest sprintcar racing talents to put on a great show for everyone including the usually magnificent 30 or 40 lap final event of the night.
Supporting them at various events during the season will be the wingless sprints and the super sedans. The wingless sprints sound like a lawn mower on steroids, but they are able to lap the circuit at incredible speeds. By contrast the super sedans look like army tanks as they look to slip and slide around the clay circuit, but they are always plenty of fun especially when the slides head the wrong way.
The ever-popular Demolition Derby also features twice on the season calendar, once in November and also as part of the Easter Thrillerama event on Easter Sunday. Popular amongst kids, make sure you get there earlier enough to secure a good seat to see the car, caravans and mobile dunnys battle it out until the very end.
Sppedway City is located on Supple Road at Virginia, around 25km north of the City and just off of Port Wakefield Road. The gates open to all events around 6pm with racing generally starting around 7pm. Tickets are available at the main gate. For further details on speedway refer to the Speedway City website or on their facebook page.
