Timmis Speedway Mildura launches back in to action this Easter on our traditional nights being Good Friday & Easter Sunday.
Once again the Australian Sprintcar Allstars Series will headline the event in what has become an Easter mainstay in recent years.
The Sprintcars will feature both nights & the action promises to be as hot as it’s ever been.
The club has been fortunate enough to secure some temporary stadium lighting making it possible to host the decorated event.
In saying that there is still a lot to be done before the cars hit the track. The committee its members & volunteers have been working tiersly to get the new catch fence erected & that is still an ongoing process. A number of important working bees will be held over the next 2 months to insure the complex is set to welcome everyone back again.
President Geoff Fell added “The support from our fans, competitors & members is what keeps us motivated & driving forward. We still haven’t been able to secure any form of government funding for our critical safety upgrades & it’s these people that have dipped into their own pockets to help us get back up & running again & we are forever great full for this support.”
Financial support so far has come from not only locals but from right across Australia, there have been a lot of business donating funds & pledging sponsorship. The club still has active fundraisers going including a Go-Fund me campaign, along with the ability to purchase a new catch fence post, Easter advertising packages & more.
The club is also planning to the run the annual “Ross Crick Memorial” event following Easter on Saturday April 22nd whilst we have the lighting infrastructure here for the Easter weekend. That will be followed by “Wind Back The Clock” Classic & Vintage meeting during the afternoon on Saturday May 6th in which more news will be released in the coming weeks.
Whilst this is all fantastic news we are still desperately seeking funding to re install a permanent lighting system so that we can back to weekly racing events moving into next season.
