On December 7 a meeting was held by the members of Mildura Speedway Drivers Club in regards to the racing future at Timmis Speedway in Mildura.
Many things were discussed in what needs to happen for the club to move forward & go racing again.
A commitment has been made by the members to have cars on the track come Easter for the Easter Power Sports weekend being Good Friday & Easter Sunday for the 360 Sprintcar Easter Nationals incorporating the Australian Sprintcar Allstars Series Grand Finale + a whole host of other great classes that will feature over the two day event.
We need all hands on deck to help complete the ground works for the new catch fence next weekend December 17 & 18, with plans to erect the new fence very early in the New Year.
Multiple options are being investigated to enable Easter to be run including utilising temporary lighting.
We have some fundraising campaigns ongoing to assist with the cost of the new safety fence. A GoFundMe campaign running at the moment, along with the $1000 club.
A new initiative launched is the option to buy a catch fence pole, for $200 you can purchase a catch fence post to help complete the works. We have a way of recognizing these people moving forward which will be optional if you wish to remain anonymous.
You can purchase a post or donate via EFT (bank details on flyer), our online shop at https://mildura-speedway-drivers-club.square.site/ or via cash/EFTPOS at Enzed Mildura
On to our huge working bee next weekend, important days for our fence progress.
We kindly thanks those supporters, racers, fans, business that have donated so far, your money is helping us keep the dream alive.
