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.

With the completion of the removal of the old fence and light poles, work begins on the new safety fence. Thanks to the crew WK Posi Track Hire, the holes for the new poles have been bored and the footings will be poured in the coming weeks.
