In a huge milestone for the club, the new track lighting was switched on for the first time and works perfectly.
Electricians will work to aim the LED lights over the next couple of days, but already it looks amazing and we are excited to see some cars on track.
Our first race meeting will be the Ross Crick Memorial on November 18.
Unfortunately due to ongoing power infrastructure works at the complex still ongoing, the upcoming ‘Wind Back The Clock’ vintage event has been cancelled.
Despite hard work by the club, we could not be sure these would be complete by October 14 so we have had to make this hard decision.
We still have our annual ‘Wind Back The Clock’ on May 11, 2024 and there will be opportunities during our regular season events for vintage cars to hit the track.
We expect to now start our season on November 4 with the Sprintcar Allstars.
Our 2022/23 Annual General Meeting will be held in the Timmis Speedway clubrooms on Wednesday August 23 at 8pm.

Feb 3 and we have two state titles on one huge night – the Victorian Super Sedan Title and the SA Wingless Sprints Title.
Feb 24 sees the return of 410 Sprintcars to Timmis for the first time in years, with the Southern Shootout Series, which will be joined by the Victorian AMCA Series.

Onto Easter, with the big two night 360 Sprintcar Easter Nationals.
The Anzac Day weekend we will hold the Australian Production Sedan Title which will be a huge event for our track.
The season then finishes off on May 11 for another Wind Back The Clock vintage event.
The shortened 2022/23 season at Timmis Speedway came to a close on Saturday afternoon with the running of the annual ‘Wind Back The Clock’ event, supported by the Mildura Gateway and Mildura Rural City Council.
A fantastic range of vintage and classic race cars hit the track on a sunny afternoon and it was a fantastic way to end the season.

After being closed for a year Timmis Speedway in Mildura roared back into life on Good Friday as the final round of the 2022/23 Mainline Dynolog Dynamometers rolled into town. On a night that saw rather unseasonal cold weather, the racing on track was hot with young Talented South Australian Ben Morris taking the win. Steve Caruso picked up another podium this season in second with Ricky Maiolo making it an all South Aussie Podium.
Chris Solomon led the field to green with Heath Hunter Hire Quick Time winner Maiolo joining him on the front row. It was an all Caruso second row with newly crowned Australian Champion Mark Caruso joined by his brother Steve on the second row. The third row consisted of Morris and Brendan Quinn.
The first attempt at green saw Mark Caruso flip wildly in turn 1. At the resumption Solomon raced away to the lead with the battle for the minor spots on the podium heating up. 13 laps in and the red lights come on again with Lisa Walker and Dave Donegan flipping in turn 1. The resulting damage caused the tail tank of the S4 to come away spilling Methanol on the race track. With Officials and Fire Crews needing to clean it up resulting in a short delay.
At the resumption of hostilities Solomon lead the field away but the battle behind him was sensational with Caruso, Maiolo and Morris all taking turns at chasing down the leader. Tragedy would strike on lap 24 when Solomon whilst attempting to lap a back marker would tagged the main straight wall causing him to pull infield. The final 6 laps were uneventful with Morris taking the win ahead of Caruso and Maiolo.
Ryan Davis capped off a consistent night finishing 4th with TEH Hard Charger Steven Loader rounding out the top 5. Corey Sandow would follow with Brendan Quinn, Zac Farrer, Kane Newcombe Boyd Harris and Stacey Galliford rounding out the finishers.
Heat race wins went to – Farrer, Quinn, Charles Hunter, Rusty Hickman, Maiolo and Davis
